Vintage Fashion With Dawn & Lisa: Spring 2014

 The Addison Conference Centre was transformed into a vintage paradise for a weekend-long spring 2014 Dallas Vintage Clothing & Jewelry Show.  Vendors from DFW and around the country brought their best vintage gems for us to buy and admire.   
But the highlight event of the weekend was a speech about fashion through the decades by Dawn Mellon, The Savvy Stylist.  The presentation began with an introduction by the equally-fabulous Lisa Petty, editor-extraordinaire for DFW Style Daily.  Dawn's meticulously styled looks from the 1920s through the 1960s were historically accurate yet were still appealing in modern times.  I could see myself or my friends in a variation of each outfit, which was a fun way to look at fashion history!

Shopping followed Dawn's presentation.  Lisa and I sifted through a table of jewelry from Estate Chicago that we agreed we could look through all day long!  This was my first time at the Dallas Vintage Clothing & Jewelry Show, but it certainly won't be my last.  As always, Lisa Petty has the best suggestions!
