(Dress and Boots: When Decades Collide, Hat: NYC)
Now that Vanessa is home for good, we can spend hours upon hours taking photos for our blog. When she came home to visit from New York, we spent the same amount of time hunting down the perfect destination and when we found it, we couldn't stop snapping. But for some reason it didn't feel the same as it does now. Maybe it's because I always knew in the back of my mind that she had to go back? Since her move, I can't seem to stop smiling. I call it a "perma-smile" :) I am so happy that she is finally here... words cannot explain.
Since we were little, my sister and I always had a love for vintage. I would have never thought in a million years that we would end up dropping everything to pursue our dreams together. When you tell people that your starting your own vintage clothing business, they always look at you as if your crazy. I guess what they think we should be doing is working 9 to 5 in a company because then we wouldn't be risking anything. But I always ask myself, would I be happy? I don't think working in a company or for some one else is bad, I just think that if I did I would always be thinking in the back of my mind, "what if?" What if I followed my dreams? What is wrong with that? Yeah it might not be as solid or set in stone as it would be if I worked for a company but at the end of the day, to me, I don't feel like I am risking anything. I am doing something I love with someone I love, what is risky about that? To me, nothing.
