    Ever since I started collecting vintage fashions, five or six years ago, I had a desire one day to wear a complete vintage outfit, sizing and money issues and time meant that it's been a long journey
    any how this dream has almost come true, with the exception of my shoes, nylons and girdle every thing else I am wearing here is between 45 and 60 years old.
    hopefully the none vintage items will be replace with vintage items one day.
    I thought I share my work and joy with you.

    I love the dress, and the shoes look great, even if they're not vintage - it looks like they have a thin platform? Large vintage shoes can be so hard to find!

    Fabulous. The shoes have a wonderful vintage feel perfect for the rest of the outfit. A job well done!

    it's funny how shoes come around again quicker than clothes do

    Makes every thing worth while, when you can step back and think I done the best I can,
    maybe in a few months I think of a way of improving it, is that not life and what make it interesting.
    In any thing we do even like decorating.

    The one piece of advice I would give you (hope you don't mind, it's the mom in me;)) is the same thing I have to remind my teenage model when we take pictures - lift your head up and throw those shoulders back! It's amazing what a difference it makes in showing off your beautiful clothes to best advantage. I've done a bit of modeling (long ago) and here's what I remember - you should feel like you're pushing your head toward the celing with the shoulders rolled back a bit. This naturally elongates the neck and thrusts the chest forward a little which emphasizes the curves you want emphasized!
    Your leg positioning is good, BTW.

    thank you Ookoo, the logic behind it if you can call it that is to buy things which just catch my eye.
