Living Vintage

How about this for a cool idea... Take an iconic vintage photograph and create a space or outfit inspired by that very image. Well that's exactly what designer extraordinaire Angie Hransowsky and the vintage curating maven Lauren Lail teamed up to accomplish at Novel in downtown Charleston. And they didn't just do one photograph, they did two. The outcome, Living Vintage, is perfection. What's even better, all of the items used in the collections are for sale...

And the interpretation...

And it's interpretation...


Hmmmm... those floral pants look familiar don't they? Oh yeah, I was wearing them in my Blogfest recap yesterday :) They're mine now (I said everything was on sale!). And I dream of purchasing that peachy sofa in the first set of photos, and pretty much everything else. No surprise, Angie and Lauren are quite the dream team. Both gorgeous, too. Congrats on a successful event, Ladies!
