Snippets from around the Interwebs

Every week I come across great articles, tutorials, and outfit posts. I decided that these links would be fun to share, as a what you missed this week on the interwebs. The headings may change, as may the content, but I hope this builds into a good listing of links and resources for living a vintage modern life.

Vint Condition Mentions:

Our model Kim was featured on Alex Keller's blog series on the girls of Etsy. Much applause to Danielle Brown's photography.  Also, one commenter remarked that Kim looks like a young Carrie Fisher. Thoughts?

Our straw hat got a mention over at Yonder as a perfect picnic accessory!

Vintage Tutorials:

Solanah of Vixen Vintage clues us into how she gets that 1940s look for her hair.

I regularly chop off my hair before summer, but Starr of A Thought is in Blossom has a great video showing how to keep hair up in a scarf turban that I may consider for this summer.

Keiko Lynn guest posted on the blog A Beautiful Mess about her Project Restyle Dress. Do any of you craftly remake your finds?

Sustainable Living:

A lot of vintage buyers also support sustainable living since vintage clothes buying and thrifting is a great way to use the resources we already have. The NYTimes had a piece about a younger generation struggling to revive and start small farms in Oregon. 

Also, if you live where I live, you should know that this Saturday the Cornell Cooperative Extension is hosting Food from the Farm where you get to meet local farmers and food producers. They had a meal component, but they've sold out.  Additionally, the Parker Maple Farm is hosting a pancake breakfast (yum!) this Saturday and next. Maple themed events are taking place all over New York, so check here to see what's going on.

Did you come across any interesting pages lately?

Hehe, yeah I was mulling over that comment and thought I would google image to see if I saw any similarities. Luckily those photos almost line up perfectly in terms of angle.
