Vintage Seventeen magazine covers

I'm a sucker for vintage clothing and memorabilia.
These Seventeen magazine covers are so fun to look at and compare!
I especially love reading the captions for each issue.
It's so interesting to see how much the magazine has changed through various eras.
But, it's also comforting to see that young girls in the 40s were interested in essentially the same things that girls are enthralled by today!
1944, 1949, 1961, 1954

 1961, 1964, 1966, 1963

1967, 1970, 1978, 1990

Wildfox Magical Creatures

Wildfox Couture has released a dream collaboration with Francesca Lia Block, one of my favorite authors. They collaborated with Francesca in the past, shooting a Weetzie Bat look book that was beyond perfect. 
Their newest endeavor is a whimsical fairytale, written by Block, featuring three beautifully magical and different Wildfox girls: Cherie, the beautiful gypsy, Dahlia the elegant witch, and Ella the glittering fairy.
I'm in love! Which Wildfox girl are you?
I believe I'm most like Ella, I share her reservations and at times really need to push myself to believe.
I also love twinkling fairy lights and cupcakes with mounds of pink buttercream frosting.
