  • Learning about Fashion (officially!)

    Posted: May 27 2014

    Last week marked the beginning of a new chapter :) We've been working on vintagehordes for about a year now. It's been fun, but I've always wanted to do more, so one day I woke up and decided to take a course in fashion school, a course product design and development to be more specific. At the end of the course we get to design a piece, starting from scratch! Week 1: Identifying textilesThis past week, we've been learning about the different types of materials used and you guessed it, cotton and polyester are two of the most popular materials used in clothing! Did you know that velveteen/corduroy are both actually 100% cotton, and their effect's simply by using a different finish to get two entirely seemingly different fabrics.

  • Nicole Richie love

      Our first post, and for some reason it felt right to be talking about Nicole Richie, simply because she's AH-MAZING. She's accomplished so much. Who would have thought someone who was once known simply as Paris Hilton's "sidekick" would become such a wonder woman? Now, Nicole owns her own fashion brand "House of Harlow", has a wickedly funny web series "Candidly Nicole", has a loving family (I still can't believe she's a mom - simply because she's still so... crude - this is a compliment by the way ;)). I love her, I do. She might not be out there working on cancer research and saving the world, but she's still MY role model. She's doing what she loves, she's in a happy, loving relationship, she's still her wacky self even after having kids and let's not forget she looks gorgeous juggling everything.  What else could a girl want? ♥...
