November’s Ottawa Vintage Clothing show brought a lot of style inspiration this year, with shoppers coming dressed for the occasion with outfits from the forties to the seventies. In preparing this article, I was fortunate to have guidance from Jaime McLeod of Housewife Vintage/Flowers and Vintage. She was Apartment 613’s charming guest style-spotter. She did indeed have a great eye, and whilst selling her own vintage wear in a booth she sent me chasing after some fancily dressed attendees. In this article, Jaime also tells us about her own style inspiration.
There were also a number of BFFs shopping for vintage goods together and staying true to their theme! Check out Kelsey and Kyla (left), for example.
I was struck by how serious people were about being committed to a look from a certain decade. In fact, there was so much inspiration, there is room for not just one, but two style files! Here is Part I, you can look forward to Part II in the new year.
