Guess whoโ€™s in town for the holidays? Yes, my darling Mildred is staying with us here in NYC and if you haven't met her, now is the time to do so! Sheโ€™s actually appeared many times before on the blog and is a dear friend of mine. In fact, sheโ€™s my #RetroAlterEgo!

Mildred arrived on Sunday via the MTA Holiday Nostalgia Train and boy oh boy, that dame sure knows how to show up in vintage-style! Her mink fascinator, faux fur cape, 1940s style floral dress, pearl cluster earrings, gloves and purse are all vintage while her heels are a modern take on high vamp shoes from the 1940s. 

Millie rode the train along the F line into NYC, and we were lucky enough to capture a little video of her primping & re-applying one of her favorite Besame lipsticks. Head to my Instagram to see the video!

Now hereโ€™s the best part, you too can ride the "special eight-car subway train of  R1-9 cars from the 1930s complete with rattan seats, ceiling fans, incandescent bulb lighting, drop-sash style windows, vintage roll signs, and original advertisements!โ€

The Holiday Nostalgia Train departs from the 2nd Ave subway station on the F line and from the 96th Street subway station on the Q line at various times every Sunday until Christmas. You can find more details here and maybe you'll bump into Mildred one day!
