NOW, onto the lookbook!
This began with a trip to Youtube when I found out there are such things as lookbook videos. (I'm sure most of you already knew of those forever ago, but I'm an old lady and don't catch onto these new-fangled interwebs fads as quickly.) I was APPALLED at the utter lack of vintage lookbooks. (And by "vintage" I mean the kind of vintage that incorporates mid-century and older looks. Not 80s jumpsuits and 90s daisy duke shorts.)
So, of course, I had to remedy that. My amazing friend Maureen offered to help me!
In this video I've got three looks that I've been wearing this spring. It may look a bit scattered as to the seasonality of each outfit, but that's because Missouri is being RIDICULOUS, as usual, with its spring weather. Only a few days ago I was wearing shorts and sweating, and today I wore a coat to work. Ridiculous.
However, this lets you readers in both the northern and southern hemispheres check out some clothing that may fit your current season. I hope you guys enjoy it! (And if you do, please share, comment, etc. to let me know that you do, and I'll be sure to make more of these videos!)
