classic fall fashion: lena hoschek

i have always been completely in love with classic and well-tailored vintage fashion.

one of my favorite experiences as an actress was being custom fitted for a professionally designed and hand-sewn period piece costume. i swoon just thinking about it!

yesterday, danielle thompson of kitschy digitals tweeted about the beautiful fall collection from lena hoschek and i was reminded of this feeling.

thanks to danielle, i'm now totally smitten with these preppy pinup pieces...

aww, i love the plaid with tights and cute shoes! the full skirts are so adorable. it's also nice to see models who actually look like they're having fun, right? :)

just bought some cute tights and knee-highs(!) yesterday. i can't wait for fall so i can wear them. pete told me fall in p-town is supposed to be gorgeous! really looking forward to that.

hope you're doing well! good luck with getting back into classes.
