Black and White Sunday-Vintage Style

I've never agreed with Paul Simon "that everything looks worse in black and white."  The most beautiful photos, I think, are the oldest ones.   Today on our neighborhood walk Weasley wore his Victorian Bell collar from Linden Line Designs, I reviewed them in this here,  and I was wearing a vintage dress and hat from Adeline's Attic.   When we got home and I looked a the picture my husband snapped of us I realized it kind of reminded me of this old photo of a Victorian era girl and her bell wearing pug.




Of course I'm not a little girl and Weasley, like all modern pugs, looks quite different then his Victorian forebears but you get the idea.    If by any chance you have an interest in vintage style my other blog, The Old Fashioned Way, is about my love of all things vintage (including vintage dog stuff).

  3. Beautiful, I love vintage also, especially vintage purses. Black and whites have a clarity and sharpness about them that you can't really get in color (or so think after looking at some of the old studio shots).

  14. That's a great photo of you and your mom, Weasley! I also like black and white. My dad and I watch a lot of old movies that are in black and white. How do you like the bell collar? Sounds like fun although it would be difficult to sneak some treats as everyone would know where you were. :)

    -Love,
    Sid.
