Have Love, Will Travel


I talked a little about my love for vintage a few outfit posts ago, so it's fitting that I'm wearing loads of vintage today from my sponsor Have Love, Will Travel--an equally fitting name that I feel could describe me quite well. I'm actually in the midst of traveling right now; visiting Kansas to see my sister and new nephew (hopefully soon anyway!). These pictures however were taken in Amish country (aka my usual haunts); I thought an old covered bridge would be the perfect setting for the mostly vintage ensemble. Nowadays most of my vintage shopping is done in online curated shops which do all the legwork for you by hunting down nice pieces and measuring everything so you can quickly assess what is a fit. In high school and college I loved the personal hunt for vintage, but every time I go thrift shopping these days I can barely find anything in my size and thrift shops have gotten savvy about marking prices up so it means I spent hours hunting for pieces I could find similarly priced online in five minutes. I'll still always enjoy the random thrift shop visit and antique store day, but my bread and butter of vintage shopping has definitely become Etsy. Anyway, I couldn't be happier with my new pieces and I'm pretty sure the hat will become a staple. The shop is definitely worth checking out for well-priced and nicely maintained pieces.
Also, apparently this covered bridge is a popular photography spot because just as I finished and walked back to my car a couple taking engagement photos walked up with a professional photographer--I hope their photos came out pretty!

I just have a technical question about your blog layout-- how did you make it so that all of the photos are the same width? Thanks :3

@Abby, I change the width of my photos before I upload them to the web--all of my photos are the same width, so it isn't a layout thing. :)

Such a gorgeous skirt! and the brooch is just super cute and a nice quirky edge to the outfit.

Everything about this outfit is amazing! I love the red, I love the plaid, I love the shoes, and that jacket not only fits you superbly, but the color is incredible. Will def check out "Have Love Will Travel" Thanks for the intro.

Well it is a pretty neat bridge! Your photos came out wonderfully. I've also found that as more people have become interested in buying vintage, the prices have shot up! I still enjoy searching for hours and hours because when you find the perfect piece the time is so worth it. i love that skirt. You pull off different lengths so well!
On a different note, wonder if you could help me. Do you know what the rules are for posting designers lookbook photos and the like? I know that you share lookbooks quite a lot and i'd like to share my inspiration on my blog but I'm not sure about the copyright rules. Any advice would be really appreciated! www.prettynostalgia.blogspot.co.uk

@Helena, never remove watermarks and always credit the designer by name and link; really list as much credit as possible. When in doubt write the designer and ask permission before sharing.
