In the beginning of Fashion Fridays I would painstakingly track down new clothing that looked like vintage clothing and vintage clothing that looked as though it had inspired the new clothing. After a couple of years of that I dropped my workload to just finding new clothing that looked like vintage clothing without including examples of vintage items that were similar. Well, I thought that I would ring in my first Fashion Fridays! post of 2010 with going back to the old school posting style of years past- featuring the new clothing along with "inspirational" vintage clothing (this time I had to look no further than my own online store to find an inspirational vintage piece).
