Une Femme est une Femme


   A couple of weeks ago I discovered Une Femme est une Femme- a french film from the 'New Wave' period in the 60's. I instantly fell in love with the characters, one being the lovely Anna Karina, as well as her clothing in this film.  Her style is simple and seemingly effortless, but oh so elegant! I particularly loved her brightly colored tights, blue velvet hair bow, striped pencil skirt, and the way she wore her hair--especially how it was always perfect... even after just waking up. The next day, I broke out my bright red tights, pairing them with a high-waisted pencil skirt and sweater, inspired by Karina's character in this charming and hilarious film!

Amanda and I were just conversing of our amusement towards the Introduction post. She spent so much time putting this all together (which I had no idea about) so I will put forth some effort, as well!

I recently shot a stop motion featuring a fantastic dress that Amanda has listed in our shop. I am totally envious of it and wish it fit me so that I could steal it... but alas! some other, much luckier, girl gets the chance to snatch it up.

Anyway, here's the video. Please enjoy and admire this velvet beaut.

  Hello!  So, we're both new in the community and thought we would introduce ourselves and explain how we found ourselves here.

  Our names are Kate and Amanda.  We're twins and are 18 years old, living in middle Tennessee.  We're both very much into photography, which comes in handy, seeing as you need an eye for beauty in this, but we also know the ropes for taking photographs in our hobby of collecting vintage clothing and selling them.  We are both owner's of a shop called A World In Reverse, on Etsy, where we sell vintage clothing and vintage-inspired hair pieces; hand-made by ourselves.  This was our inspiration to start this blog in the first place--to share the vintage pieces and hand-made hair accessories with all of you, as well as post some of our current style inspirations and daily outfits of our own.

  As for myself, I know I started to fall in love with vintage style when first discovering the charm of old movies, at about the age of 13.  It all started when my dad took me and my siblings to an outdoor movie in a small country town.  People would gather every summer, on the weekends, and watch these old classic's shown at the pavilion there.  There was something very quaint and magical about it to me and I begged to go every weekend.  I didn't necessarily get into the clothing aspect of the movies, just the feeling of nostalgia when viewing something long passed.  I've always been fascinated by history and started frequenting antique shops around that time.  I became interested in  photography and started noticing the fashion aspect of it--what people were wearing in photos--and how that provoked a certain mood.  I also started following fashion blogs, my first inspiration being Rhiannon's blog- Liebemarlene, still one of my favorites.  Many of the friends I've made through posting my photography on Flickr are also very much into fashion and are a constant inspiration.  So, I was influenced by all of this! It all just sort of went hand-in-hand for me.  Anyway, here I am today, now adding vintage pieces to my own wardrobe, as well as scouting out some beauts for others to add to theirs!

My passion for vintage style has clearly impacted my graphic design work as well, which you can find here.
