Bringing more color into my life has been a goal of mine since I began my journey into vintage. This summer I put aside my trusty blues and blacks and went for a bright and colorful look. I dolled up for my eldest son's graduation and hammed it up among some equally colorful carnival rides in the school yard.
It's safe to say that delving into vintage has given me some good challenges to face. Trying new colors when it comes to fashion can be tricky especially when you aren't the type of person who likes a lot of attention. Wear a striking red or bright yellow and you are bound to have a few heads turned.
I don't regret challenging myself when it comes to my evolving fashion tastes. I'm finding it fun and a surprisingly creative outlet. And its safe to say I did turn some heads. I don't think it was just because of the brightness of my fabulous vintage ensemble but also because I was dressed in vintage. People in my neighborhood are not used to seeing such things. You'd think New Yorkers are open to creative people but in my particular borough in New York there view on creativity isn't as open as it is in other areas of the city.
But I don't regret it. My children think I look fabulous and I feel amazing so to me that's all that matters. Be colorful and pose in front of random carnival rides. Why not?
