You may recall quite a while back I told you that I had finally joined Flickr~~but truth be told I really hadn't done very much with it as far as my own photos go. I would attempt to cruise around the site and find some inspiration, but I soon realized that each and every web~based "club" has it's own little rules and system and I just didn't feel like trying to figure out yet another "cyber" system that would leave me rubbing my eyes, with a dull headache, wishing I had just spent the time listing a new item in my boutique (or watching Pride & Prejudice again) instead of trying to become Bill Gates' next program designer (LOL!!!!!!)

She can be a Vintage Movie Starlet one evening, and the simple, yet classic college student ready to hit the books the very next morning. I would love to have interviewed her for "Tales From A Vintage Wardrobe", but settled for permission to display her lovely photos and links to her Flickr photo-stream. It's the stuff that vintage wardrobe dreams are made of!
Thank you, Piksi, for such wonderful Vintage Fashion Inspiration!

A must~mark site for all vintage clothing/fashion aficionadas!
