Style

Over at Frilly and Funky this week, they are asking what is your favorite vintage style.  I would say my actual style falls dead center in the clumsy zone (with frills and bling).  LOL!  I definitely love the pinks and girlie shades - as well as the lace and ribbons.  I very much adore the vintage look, but I feel like I tend to lean more towards shabby chic-ish - I don't know that I would refer to it as "vintage" style.  I'm hoping to learn more though!.  


Yeah, yeah, I know the stitching is wonky.  Ummmm....it's character?   It was actually my machine jumping combined with dogs jumping on me.  It's a good example of what I mean by the clumsy zone...something always has to go weird on me!
