Fashion for Breakfast

(dress/hat-Vintage 1950's, suitcase/purse-Vintage, jewels-J.Crew, earrings-Kate Spade)

Photos by Lydia Hudgens.

These photos were inspired by a haiku my sister made me:

Vintage Chanel morning
Polyester Gods Smiling
 She eats Fashion for Breakfast

Taken from the haiku I have named part of my blog 'Fashion for Breakfast' where I post facts about fashion history--which is something I am obsessed with.
This has been a part of my blog I have neglected a bit, so I wanted to rejuvenate my spirits to keep doing history posts--so what better than a photoshoot to draw inspiration?!
I am fascinated by fashion history and spend my time outside of my blog and work learning about it. 
 My sister has been so kind to check me out very special fashion books from her library at her fashion school. 
 I thought it would be nice to share with you all the fun facts I learn on my blog especially since I am learning from books (the old fashioned way) and not the Internet.

These photos were so fun to take and Lydia and I got to enjoy a yummy breakfast together.
I felt like I was in an old black and white silent film in a cafe in Paris.  My 1950's dress and hat definitely helped to set the old fashioned mood we were going for.
I will do another post soon featuring some more outfit pics from this look.

So grab a mimosa, pull up a chair and join me for some fashion for breakfast.

And by the way my sister made the cute buttons/header for my blog.
You can see the official Fashion for Breakfast button on the sidebar.
