A whole vintage outfit

A whole vintage outfit is something I regularly find myself in. I don’t have a whole figure mirror, so usually I notice it when I’ve left my apartment. “Wow – I’m all vintage today” I often think to myself. I like to daydream about what my clothes might have seen when they lived in the U.S in their earlier life. Most of my vintage comes from the U.S – if you are wondering why I’m so terribly specific. Both of my jackets are vintage from secondLove in Bergen, and my dress is purchased on Etsy.
