A Day of Accomplishment


This past weekend I closed the door to my undergrad career at Oakland University and opened the door to a whole new stage in life. My college commencement took place on a very rainy Saturday and was unfortunately outdoors. I had my trusty umbrella in tow so my hair didn't get too drenched, but it did loose a lot of the curl by the end of the ceremony. At least the rain let up and we were able to march out of the pavilion to the bagpipes. The rain was not going to put a damper on this day, which I had been looking forward to ever since my first college class four years ago. I had a great time sitting next to a few friends from the film department and we kept each others spirits up as we roughed out the rain. In regards to my outfit, I was trying to recreate what a 1940s high school or college graduate girl would have worn on her special day. And, since the general look of the cap and gown hasn't really changed since those seventy years, I feel I accomplished the look.

Congrats!!! I love your commitment to vintage, even with the cap & gown. I've only recently discovered your blog and was happy to find you're a Michigan girl like me:) I currently reside in Plymouth, not too far from you I think. Do you have any recommendations for some favorite vintage boutiques around here?? I'm excited to pull out some pretty spring dresses now the the weather is finally warming up:) Hurray!!!

Hi Vogue! I went to your blog, but I can't seem to find an email link. Anyways, my favorite stop to find vintage here in Michigan are at Mother Fletchers in Ferndale and Lost and Found Vintage in Royal Oak. Those two shops are the best in the area for vintage clothing. My favorite antique shops are Lovejoy's in Royal Oak, this place in Warren called the Antique Gallery, and the Countryside Craft and Antique Mall. We also have some great yearly flea markets around here, send me an email if you'd like a list of those as well! :)

Thanks for reading!
