Last weekend I rode the holiday vintage train, an event that happens annually in NYC. They take old subway cars from the Museum of Transit and bring them out on the subway tracks so people are able to ride them. The subway cars range from the 1920's to the 1960's. They do this every Sunday in December, and some weekends they even have live bands playing swing music to add to the ambience. I went with a group of fellow vintage lovers that also live in NYC, so it was fun to go with others who share my affection for the past. It was a bit crazy because there were so many photographers there posing us for photos or snapping shots of us while we were riding the train. Even regular people on the subway platform bombarded us for pictures with their cell phones. A few people came up to me and asked why we were dressed up, or if we were part of a club, when in reality, this is basically how we dress everyday.
I prefer to dress vintage with a more modern and quirky twist, so I thought this fifties inspired coat dress I recently received from Unique Vintage would be perfect for the occasion. I added this piano bag from Charming Charlie, polka dot tights and leopard print flats for a whimsical touch.
If you live in NYC, the vintage holiday train is still running for the rest of the month, so catch it if you can!
