My Vintage Vogue

Hello everyone. I cannot believe it has been over a week since I last posted. Today I was again browsing the website My Vintage Vogue, a collection of vintage fashion photos and designers from various decades. There appear to be many new inspiring pictures since I lasted viewed the website and since the 1950s/60s are may favourite vintage decades for fashion, my post is largely focused on that time.

Recently I received some comments about whether or not I decided to continue at university this semester and I have been meaning to write about this issue for awhile now. As you might have noticed I am still there and attempting to complete the semester which will be over in about three weeks.I have well passed the date for withdrawing without academic penalty and I have been feeling better than I was a couple of months ago because if I wasn't, I don't think I would have got to this point. However, I am still having difficulties appyling myself to the work and finding motivation to complete something that I find so boring and a routine that makes me feel unhapppy. I have somehow completed all my assessments, got some very average marks but I have been getting by. I am not attempting to achieve good marks this terms and I will be extremely happy if I can receive passes. I just don't have the correct state of mind currently to achieve better than this right now and I don't want to place too much pressure on myself. I know this may be the wrong attitude to university but since it is one semester I don't think it will have long term impacts. It is disapointing to know that I could achieve much better but I think that in life we have to do the best we can given the current situation. If this is all I can do right now then thats how it will have to be. In three weeks when the semester ends I hope I can deeply think about my life and sort out some of the underlying reasons for the way that I have been feeling this year.

So lovely, I adore how immaculately dressed these ladies were! I wonder why we don't dress like that anymore!!

I'm glad you're at peace with yourself with the current situation you're facing. Hope it gets better for you:)

Wow. How gorgeous are those?? Best of luck finishing up your classes!

Love these dresses Imogen! I wish they still sold dresses in these styles.
I hope the rest of the term goes well with your studying. When I was at uni, there were many people that just wanted to pass, you shouldnt feel bad just because you have higher priorities than the studying :)

i know what you mean about the university motivation... i am only in my second semester, but this semesterm things went completely crazy, i didnt have any sort of motivation at all, because i couldnt get sleep, i couldnt find anything that particularly interested me because i had so many courses that my head sometimes felt as if it was about to explode... i will be extremely happy as soon as the semester is over as well. i just didnt have any time for anything, and functioned but didnt really do anything besides learning; i am looking forward to the holidays, and hope you will have time and space to think about uni, relax and keep taking such lovely photos of your clothes, love the stripy ensemble in the last post!
greetings from vienna! :)

Hang in there! You've only got a few weeks, then can go on a break and really think about what you need.

These photos are so lovely. There are some new ones I didn't see before, so I'm really pleased you posted these. :)

I'm glad you're feeling a little better about school. I felt so awful you were so unhappy. I know it's tough, but I'm glad you're hanging in there. This semester is just a rough road for you, that's all. Hey, you're lucky to be passing! Not many people can get through something so dull and uninspiring and do that! Most would fail. So you're a success no matter what! (That's how I see it!!). xoxo!
