  4. I think it depends on the context, some photos look better in colour and some look better in black and white...it's just my opinion ;)
    But I love both styles, and those are really beautiful :)

    Have a great day!

  10. Hello,
    My name is Tarah I am the author of Tarah and the City. This is my first time visiting your blog and I was very inspired by all the lovely fashion. I had to be a follower. :)

    I love this post. That was a cute little poem at the beginning. I think it's great to see that some of the same designers still channel their designs in the past. They all have stuck to their niche. Thanks so much for sharing.
    Always,
    Tarah and the City

  21. Vintage silhouettes were so much more flattering, feminine, and elegant than clothes now...plus i love the simple, elegant, fuss-free and classy beauty of these pieces. Wish we could dress like this now!
