Old Towne Orange

A well known vintage shopping spot for us Orange Country girls is the Old Towne Orange Circle, in the city of Orange.  Known as the "Antique Capital of Southern California," Old Towne Orange is one square mile of vintage diners, antique malls, and hundreds of structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Ashlyn and I frequent here often, in search of unique pieces in which we enjoy filling our wardrobe with, but also enjoy driving by the unique 1950's homes in the area. 

While gazing through the whimsical streets of vintage Suburbia heaven, I recognized a friend that I had worked with before on a shoot and she was kind enough to invite us in. She has beautifully renovated her home built in 1941, and has done so blending her eye for design, along with family heirlooms and antiques. Each room had its own theme, from the 1950's diner kitchen and breakfast nook, to the Art Deco dining room. The dining room was filled with antiques that reminded me of my mother's house growing up.. and a room being told NOT to go into. But my favorite of the day was the pink powder room. 

I was wearing a 1950's cotton, pale pink sundress which seemed to be the perfect fit with the feminine en suite bedroom.  The sunlight came in with a soft glow, and I just couldn't resist soaking in this room for an extra minute….or two. Another room favorited by Ashlyn and I was the large dressing room filled with an exquisite vintage wardrobe collection, antique vanity, and a wall of vintage handbags, hats, furs, and jewelry.  Our visit to this home was not long enough, but a future visit shall be arranged and shared for all to see, so stay tuned! This was just another day in 
The Pink Collar Life...
