Vintage Birthday Trip for the Big 5-0!

After 15 years of planning, it's really happening this time.  I'm turning 50 in October and I am finally taking my long-coveted Vintage Birthday Trip! Those of you who have been reading the blog for some time know that I was planning a trip for my 45th birthday, but then we moved to St. Croix.  Those of you who've known me even longer know that I've been saving for this trip since my 35th birthday in 2002. The scenario is this:  build a 1930s wardrobe and take a trip that warrants wearing it. The plan:

transatlantic crossing on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 from New York to Southampton Venice-Simplon Orient Express train from London to Venice transatlantic crossing on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 back to New York

In between, there will be some visiting friends, using my language skills, taking modern trains, and visiting the town in the Alps where my grandfather grew up. Before then, there will be A LOT of sewing.

So stay tuned!  Today is exactly five months before the day I leave. Who's with me?

Let's do this from the skin out!
