INSPIRATION: VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHY

         I got these photographs this past weekend from my grandmothers 80th birthday. The first time I saw them, I instantly loved her style. From the 50s clothing to her hair, my grandmother is my new fashion icon. Plus I think her wedding dress was beyond stunning.  I've always been interested in finding vintage 50s and 60s clothing so I'm excited to do some shopping soon, and now I have some ideas in mind.

Do you enjoy looking back at vintage family photos for inspiration in your style?
