365 Vintage Days: Thank you!

It’s time to say thank you to those many people that have made these 365 vintage days possible.

First of all my husband Jone, who took most of the pictures for this blog and has been with me hunting vintage around the world for so many years.

While Jone was travelling, pictures have ben also taken by our friends Erika, Timo and Maarit and we really enjoyed the possibility to take pictures in the snowny garden of our friends Tarja and Tom, while Eija of VintagEija has tailored made some great outfits and repaired many others. Thank you Dear Friends!

Then there’s Lassi of the Fintage Ry association, who started the whole thing when asking me if I could blog on the association’s web site and the Fintage Ry association of course.

And of course all of you who have followed this blog and encouraged me with your nice comments deserve a big thank!

We had tonight a nice dinner to celebrate the end of these 365 vintage days: on the picture Anne, Lassi, Fiona and myself at the restaurant Kolme Kruunu in Helsinki, which still has its original decoration from 1952, with reasonnably priced good food and nice staff.

I am wearing an evening dress by Suzy Perette of New York, in black velvet and faille, black suede and clear vinyl heels, a black bakelite purse with a transparent carved licite lid, and silver tone costume jewelry set by Sarah Coventry and a small black velvet hat. I got the dress last july from one of the Beyond Retro shops in Stockholm, the heels are from an antique book shop in the Greenwich neighbourhood of London, the purse and the costume jewelry from the US. The gloves are  from VintagEija’s in Turku and the hat from the US.

365 Vintage Days

365 vintage days was a bet and a challenge. From March 2011 to March 2012, during 365 days, I published every day a new post with a different vintage outfit and had you witnessing the challenge. I have been buying and wearing 50’s clothing and accessories – most of it casual - for more than twenty years and I am still doing so. This blog now continues ...
