After visiting the amazing, Temperamental Broad's blog earlier today, I am inspired to show the "Un-Vintage" side of me too. I have to say that Ms. Temperamental looks gorgeous in anything, vintage or not! I love her style, period!
As for me, I know I say "I wear vintage all time" and I do indeed, but there are times when I cannot or when the occasional calls for something different.
Whenever I go to a VNV Nation show, I wear more of a gothic-influenced style. Think gothic girl meets Betty Grable or Vampira. I love VNV Nation, Informatik, The Cure, Decoded Feedback, Angels and Agony, Suicide Commando, Sisters of Mercy, Razed In Black as well big band and Lady Gaga.
(Here I am having a beer with the husband. This is the style of clothing I wear for going to see VNV)
When I go to Colorado for skiing, I adapt there too. On days I go into town, I will wear my cat eye sunglasses and eyeglasses but I will put on a Lip Service mini plaid skirt, black leggings, wrap hoodie, and combat boots. However, when I go to the high country of Colorado in summer, I will wear my usual vintage. I just can't pull off rayon dresses and platform heels in the snow!

When I ski, I will wear ski gear, albeit with red lipstick and cat eye sunglasses.
Here is me ala 'DC professional.' I had a few business meetings with clients that day and needed to wear 'conservative business lady' attire.
But, when all is said and done, I am truly a vintage girl at heart!
