I admit, I do not currently own alot of vintage clothing. Most of my vintage is in the bohemian style of the late 60's and 70's. Recently one of my cousins posted a fantastic photo of my maternal grandmother Sophie. It was the first time I have ever seen my grandmother so "young". I have decided that I want my first vintage outfit to be in honor of her and will be trying to either find a dress similar to this style and print or I will bust out my sewing machine (which I am very much a novice) and attempt to sew it myself. So if you are reading this and you sew, would you happen to know a pattern # that I can research/purchase to make this dress? If so, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the Subject header put "Sophie's Dress" so I know you are not a spammer.

I hope you check them out and enjoy them as much as I do. I will try to add their pins on this page as I find new ones. But I am hoping to list everything I love vintage here. FOR THE RECORD, no links provided on this page are paying me a dime for spreading their good word by sharing their websites. I genuinely love these blogs and read them frequently!
The very first vintage blog I found was that of a beautiful blonde bombshell named Brittany. As I began reading her blog, I became aware that I am already a fan of her mother's work. Her mother is artist Mickie Mueller! It seems to me that this family is blessed with talent in various fields I love.
Bunny's Vintage Victory
From Brittany's page I learned about her friend Bunny. Bunny's blog is chock full of information as well! From her I share a love for the beautiful Marilyn Monroe and old TCM movies. Bunny definitely is another page I go to for inspiration and read often.
The Glamorous Housewife
Bethany is the vintage vixen of this website offering inspirations of vintage lifestyle ranging from Fashion, Entertaining, Cooking, & Domestic Design. She is always looking as cute as a button rocking vintage fashions.
There is also a blog that I just started reading about a vintage girl right here in Michigan, but the computer I was using previously crashed and that is where her site was bookmarked. I had just began to explore her blog so hopefully soon, I will be able to relocate her and add her to this list!
Other things here in Michgian I will be researching this upcoming year in 2013 include not only blogs but also physical places here in Michigan. A few I have found on the net are: (Information below are results from a google search. I have not researched them yet, they are on my list to check out!)
