MAAM WWII Weekend 2017 - Pt 2

As promised here is my second post about the Mid Atlantic Air Museum's WWII weekend. This time I thought I would share some fun photos from around our camp. To give you an idea of just how big this event is, have a quick peek at this map of the site.

I love this one, the guys were having too much fun reading the ads in this 1940s Life Magazine!

Here are a few shots from the French Village. I wish I had taken more but was having so much fun visiting with friends I only took a few.

Watching the vintage planes during the air show portion on the weekend is always a highlight!

That's all for now! Hope you enjoy! :) Be sure to check out Flashback Summer's post for more photos.

Our inspiration for the train station photos were similar images of soldiers and sailors leaving and returning home from WWII.

Nita Shoes from RVS

I'm sure by now that many of you are familiar with the Royal Vintage Shoes brand of reproduction and vintage style footwear. If not, I encourage you to pop over to their page and have a look around. Last fall RVS debuted their first collection of reproduction shoes based on classic styles from the 1940s. I originally ordered the Marilyn pumps in red but even after sizing down, still found they would not work for my feet. Sadly, I have a hard time with pumps. But I must say I was super impressed with the quality and style!

Thank you!

Fast forward to this spring when I found myself, ahem, in "need" of a new pair of shoes. I had scheduled a photo shoot with the extremely talented Joani of A Timeless Collection and simply had nothing to wear! lol!! We've all been their, right? ;)  (Check out part one of our shoot. Part two coming soon!)

The Nita shoes are completely different from anything I have in my vintage and vintage style shoes collection. They seem to be a versatile style that will go with a lot of different outfits, both day and evening. I actually wore these to a friend's wedding a few days after these photos were taken and danced most of the night it them!

I was a bit worried about sizing but after consulting the size chart, asking others who had purchased this style, and a quick note to Lauren the shop owner, I decided to order my normal US 6 1/2. These shoes are comfortable right out of the box, or in this case, suit case!!

The ankle straps are adjustable and the material is real leather so after wearing them a few times I find they fit really well! The heel, though a little taller than I like for everyday, is balanced and very comfortable.

As you can see, we did a bit of walking around for this photo shoot. The Nita's did great!! Even walking down the railroad tracks!

There is a lot to love about these shoes!

So, where will your RVS shoes take you? ;) Oh, and right now they are having a summer sale!! :)
