Vinspiration: Vintage Breck Girl Advertisements

Vintage + Inspiration = "Vinspiration"

Some things in my clipping file have been there a long time. These vintage Breck Girl ads are among the first things I put in my clipping file that I started when I was about 10 years old. Somehow, I managed to get my hands on a vintage magazine at that age (I've always been a bloodhound when it comes to finding vintage paper ephemera). I fell in love with the technique used to illustrate the Breck Girls. It is such a lost art.
