My New Years Resolution this coming 2012 is to “do” something vintage every day of the year.
I’m calling this “Vintage365,” after the “365” self-portrait photo project many have done. I tried my own 365 portrait project last year but didn’t succeed, didn’t make it the whole three hundred and sixty-five days, so this year I am determined to complete one year’s worth of dedication to my theme, Vintage.
So every day I will post about something Vintage: clothing, magazine ads, hats, websites, events, cars, anything at all.
The technical definition of “Vintage,” according to museologists, is anything 15 to 90 years old. “Antique” is older than 90 years, but for the purpose of this project, anything at all from the past will count, so that means historical costumes in the works, tidbits of Elizabethan, Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian history, you name it.
This week I’ve declared “50s Week” as a primer for the posts to come starting January 1st, 2012.
