A special thank you to all of you who have already blogged about your vintage inspirations and entered the giveaway here. Guess what all my charming vintage blogging friends, I'm going to be adding to the pot! So, stay tuned for more glorious vintage gems to be added.
I'm hoping to have my post up soon about my vintage inspirations but I go so distracted with this current post that I wanted to send this one out first!
Do you ever look at vintage images and think wow, this looks like a current blogger? I've done this several times and I thought I would show you some of the matches. It's so nice to think that you might have a "vintage sister match" out there. I'm still looking for mine.
There are quite a few of you other bloggers out there that I really wanted to capture but I haven't quite seen or didn't get an image of your vintage counterpart. I wanted these matches to be quite similar so if I didn't find yours, maybe I just might see you in a future vintage image!
Can I say what a great time I had unearthing these vintage matches? It was so fun to see if some of you had a vintage sister! I hope you all enjoy this post too!

This image below came from an ebay auction for a rare 50's Kodachrome slide when I saw it I immediately thought this is Sylvie's vintage double. This lovely anyomous lady sure has a great smile just like Sylvie. I'm quite sure Sylvie would dig those glasses too!
Now tell me that lady is not Sylvie's vintage double!
(Please excuse the centering blogger is not cooperating.)
Vogue 1938 Cover, ah the glamour! Wonder if it's any coincidence that I also very much love this year in fashion.
I can quite imagine the lovely Amanda is this velvet suit with matching hat.

I had this image saved because of the peasant blouse then I thought hey this reminds me of Regiane:)

Many months ago, I had actually contacted the lovely Pearl about this ad and told her how much I thought this lady looked like her and an ad for pearls nonetheless!
When I saw this "Cat Eye Sunglass Ad", I totally saw Mid-Century Pink. I really do see her in a vintage cooking ad so maybe I might just find this in the future. So, I'm thinking MCP is the nice gal on the bottom left, what do you think? I think MCP totally rocks cat eye glasses:)

They have to be related!
Look at both these lovely 30's inspired ladies!

Check out the middle girl.
I think it's just too uncanny, maybe the above is actually Ticketybootupeney?

I saw two for Brittany so I figured maybe she has twin vintage sisters. I'm also thinking Brittany would totally dig her vintage twins jacket!
I know this lady styles her hair a bit different but I thought she looked a little like Laurence. I'm seeing a nice purple hat in your future dear Laurence:)

Check out D's new blog formally "Bunny's Victory" (link just below). I'd love to have a glamourous movie star as my double too!
I kind of picture Jessica from Chronically Vintage in some kind of vintage ski theme. I haven't quite found her actual vintage double but in the meantime this cute 50's doll looks a bit like her:) I once saw a playbill that I thought looked a bit like Jessica but now I can't seem to locate this image, so in the meantime...
If you are interested in finding yours, shoot me an email and I'll keep a keen out for yours!
I hope you all enjoy this post and thank you to all you lovely vintage ladies for participating in my blog post:)
