Things in my apartment that are cool and neat.
My glass antique cabinet that I got as a little girl...I was probably 7.
Instead of a wardrobe with toys tucked inside from Ikea, I had a glass wardrobe to display photos and for things not to collect dust.
Instead of visiting Disney world as a child for a family trip, me and my brothers were dragged to pennsylvania to see the architect, Frank Lloyd Wright's homes.
Instead of participating in sparks, brownies, (rainbows and skittles?) and whateverelsehaveyous as a little girl, My mom put me in art classes on a farm in a trailer.
I like to think because of the 'not so average' child hood that I lead, is how I developed my passion for everything old, vintage and surprisingly beautiful things.
Perhaps with all these outlets in my young life, I was destined to love vintage.
Loving vintage since 1987. The year this wild child was born.
Today I am headed to Angela Chen, OR fashion show (in studio) presenting her collection. It's LG Fashion Week in Toronto. It's the first show I've been to. Kind of excited. Will post photos later.
