In Vintage Inspiration

Northeast Street Rod Show

William, my brother, and I spent our afternoon at NSRA’s Street Rod Nationals held at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, Vermont. I’m not really a fan of cars unless they’re classic, so as soon as I heard about the show I knew we had to go! And let me tell you, it was awesome!!

I had plans to wear a circle skirt that I made until I tried it on and realized it was way too big. (That’s what I get for not stay stitching the waist!!) So plan B was this beautiful vintage dress given to me by my aunt. I got a lot of compliments on it. One woman said my outfit was adorable and I looked like I came straight out of a movie haha! It was funny to think that this dress once belonged to my aunt’s grandmother and is just as old as some of these cars.

I don’t pretend to know anything about cars mechanically, but that didn’t stop me from “ooh-ing” and “ahh-ing” over all the fancy paint jobs, pin stripes, and hood ornaments!

I found a petticoat to go under my dress and I swear I want to wear one everyday! I love the froof!

I think this was my favorite car of the day. It’s so beautiful! We’d go well together wouldn’t you agree? Hey, a girl can dream.

So what did you do this weekend?
