LINKS À LA MODE: WEEKLY ROUNDUP 12/30
I’m really excited to have been selected for this year’s last Links à La Mode from the Independent Fashion Bloggers website! Furthermore, this has a special meaning since the post is about my family. Thank you all and be sure to check the other great posts on this list!
Also, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with personal and professional success and, of course, dapperness!

After being a Links a la Mode editor for years, it’s really refreshing to come back and edit our end of 2010 edition! It felt so timely, too— the end of a year. So many new, exciting things to look forward to. New ideas, people, inspiration. That’s where this round-up came from: inspiration. It’s my hope that these posts will inspire you, as they’ve inspired me— as a reminder to step outside your boundaries to try something new. As a reminder to look at the world around you. To be bright and brilliant and love fashion & style. To treat yourself well, to love yourself, and feed your mind & body all you need to thrive— and hopefully inspire and help you to be the person you want to be in 2011.
Hope you all have an amazing New Year!

Vintage family pics
One of the best things about the Holidays is spending time with your family and loved ones, some of which you don’t get to see as often as you’d wish…
It is only natural that when everyone comes together on Christmas Eve, embraced by the spirit of the season, a sense of nostalgia and reminiscence arises in the form of storytelling or browsing old family photos. Usually brought on by older family members, it’s such an amazing way to keep the family history alive and remember meaningful people and events.
Recently, my uncle dug up hundreds of old family pics and slides and had them all scanned to compile a digital album..this was probably one of the best gifts I could’ve asked for. Some of the most impressive pics are those of my grandparents, back in the 40’s-60’s when they lived in Venezuela and had an hotel:

His ride back then…wish I had it nowadays

Love this pic…must’ve been taken around 1930. My grandfather’s the one on the right. Side note: it was featured on the vintage photo contest held by The Sartorialist
