Queen for a Day

First thing this morning, I saw I'd been crowned Vintage Queen no. 131 at Queens of Vintage. If that doesn't make a Monday better than usual, I don't know what does!

I'm really flattered and excited for my 15 minutes of Internet fame, and I'm happy I got to share my story about how I came to love vintage. The route was sort of circuitous--I needed clips so I started a blog, I started reading blogs, I started collecting clothes, I started going to events--but it's been wonderful. Becoming a part of a small but vocal--and crazy-stylish--community of bloggers has really enriched my life. I've learned a lot about fashion and popular culture and I get to indulge my weird passions. Plus, hunting for vintage is the best, most rewarding scavenger hunt a girl could ask for (I've hunted down my patio skirt. Next on the list? A 49er jacket and a pile of cozy cardigans).

Why do you wear vintage?


  1. Congratulations on the crowning! I'm really liking the number 131 :) Love the dress & your great sense of style! This is my first time here & I'm already a fan (& a new follower) can't wait to read more!

  2. Congrats Desiree! It's a great article and you look lovely as always ;)
