If you're in Copenhagen on Saturday September 9th, you have to join the Copenhagen Tweed Ride! I've been going for the past two years, and this year I'm on the organizing committee. ✨🚲 It's a fabulous bike run through bike friendly Copenhagen in vintage clothing, with a picnic stop where Hendricks Gin will be making drinks! Photo by Morten Fredberg is from last year when it decided to be too warm for any planned outfits... This year will be different! If you're in Copenhagen, please join us! Just find the Copenhagen Tweed Ride 2017 on Facebook and get your ticket 🏷 There will be Gin and penny farthings! βœ¨πŸ•Š #cphtweed #cphtweedride2017 #vintage #truevintage #1930s #1940s

For day five of the #belovedvintagechallenge I've chosen one of my absolute most beloved vintage dresses. It's a late 1930s cornflower blue dress with white embroideries and pockets! When I got this dress a few years ago, it had 1930s flutter sleeves, but I gathered them and hid the seam with a pearlescent button. I also replaced the damaged fabric belt buckle with this 1910s mother of pearl one. ✨ I have absolutely zero sewing skills so this just involved a few stitches. I never do alterations that are not reversible, and with this dress I feel like I've made it better. It's a complete dream of a dress and the fit is absolutely amazing! πŸ•ŠπŸ’™#1930s #1940s #vintage #truevintage #dreamy #vintagedress #vintagefashion

Trying to keep my hair out of the way so you can see the dress clips 🌟 Lost the light, so awkward window pose was only option left 😹Midnight blue chiffon and rayon 1940s dress for day four of the #belovedvintagechallenge 🌚☁️ I just realized most of my favorites are somewhat recent acquisitions (and many, including this is from @jessicasilversaga)... I'll take that as a sign that my current taste are dictating the favorites 🌟 The dress clips are borrowed from another 40s dress as I'm going to a dinner party and wanted to dress it up just a tad ✨#vintage #truevintage #1930s #1940s #truevintageootd #vintagefashion #vintagehair #vintagestyle #slowfashion

Day three of the #belovedvintagechallenge πŸŽ€πŸ•Š The twin of yesterdays dress is obviously another favorite, also purchased from @jessicasilversaga ✨ This is probably one of the dresses in my collection that gets the most compliments from strangers. I love the shade of pink and the intricate braiding πŸŽ€ #1930s #1940s #vintage #truevintage #truevintageootd #vintagedress #vintagefashion #vintagestyle #ethereal #dreamy #slowfashion #vintagehair

Second day of the #belovedvintagechallenge with @jessicasilversaga πŸ•Š This is probably one of the most exposed dresses on my account. I bought it from Jessica who got it from @archiverie who got it from @adoredvintage 🌹 I also have it's twin in petal pink! I love, love, love renaissance influenced dresses from the late 1930s-early 1940s and you'll be seeing a few more during this challenge! I agree with the spirit of the challenge being more appreciative of the items you've got and collected for years. I've been a bit discouraged by the hoarding in the vintage community lately, seems like everyone wants a complete specific wardrobe in a very short amount of time... The only thing is, price and demand is inextricably intertwined and so the prices on this kind of dresses has been absolutely ridiculous in this past year. Also meaning, that when I want to sell something of mine, I would have to use the same price level in order to be able to buy anything. I completely understand how people want beautiful things, but I hope the speed and price level can calm down a bit, as of right now I almost don't even bother getting in the fight. #1930s #1940s #vintage #truevintage #truevintageootd #vintagedress #vintagefashion #vintagestyle

I've been challenged by @jessicasilversaga to show you my seven favorite vintage pieces during the course of a week πŸ•Š I tend to change favorites due to weather and season, so this will be my current ones. This has probably been a wedding dress that has been shortened during the 1940s. Even though it has a lot of stains, I absolutely adore it. The shape is perfection and white is such an alluring color! πŸŽ€πŸŒΎ I challenge @majakudahl to join us! #belovedvintagechallenge #vintage #truevintage #truevintageootd #1930s #1940s #dreamy #vintagefashion #vintagestyle

Vanity view of my 1940s dress set πŸ•Š It was allegedly used for a wedding in the early 1940s and stored away since. I had the original etsy listing from @wildfellhall on my Pinterest for years, so I was incredibly excited when it decided to end up with me ✨Just look at those heart pockets! #1930s #1940s #vintagedress #vintage #truevintage #truevintageootd #slowfashion #vintagestyle #vintagefashion

I have fancy visitors, so wearing my most favorite dusty rose late 1930s dress set. It was the original owner's wedding dress back in 1939 πŸ•Š It has the Fashion Originators Guild label, so it sure has been a special piece. Still is ✨ #1930s #1940s #vintage #truevintage #truevintageootd #vintagefashion #vintagestyle #vintagedress #fashion #ootd #slowfashion

From my exceptionally brief vacation home in Norway πŸ•Š I've been saving for long hair for almost two years (used to be very short bob-ish, razor shaved in the neck) and now I've more than reached my goal. When you set your hair with rollers or pin curls, it creeps up quite a few inches, so it's much longer when it's straight. I was going for Gene Tierney's length in Leave Her To Heaven, then Vivien Leigh's in Gone With The Wind, but now it's almost Veronica Lake. I have to take care of some split ends by the end of this month, but it'll be fun to figure out what to do next ✨ #1930s #1940s #vintagehair #vintage #truevintage #pincurls #oldhollywood
