A costume history nerd, Christian, and wife to an amazing man- I live in San Diego area with my husband and our two cats. I enjoy the quiet life and love to spend my free time creating, sewing, and watching old movies with my husband.
I love fashion and costume history from the 18th century until the 1950s, but the Edwardian era and 1930s are my favorites. I have a college degree in fashion design and studied costume design for film. Fashion history has been a life-long passion for me. I began sewing when I was around eight years old and started studying fashion history and collecting vintage clothing when I was around fourteen years old.
My journey with fashion and costuming lead me through various adventures both professionally and personally, but I admit I get a thrill researching and creating costumes for myself. One can never be too old for dress up!
This blog is a journal of my research, projects, endeavors, and miscellaneous adventures.
