Introduction My name is Nikki. I am a 26 year old craftster and retrophile. For all of you who don't know what a retro-phile means, here it is: One who greatly loves artifacts and aesthetics from the past. My current passions include, sewing, cross stitching, steam-punk, historical costuming, and dresses. My style is a blend of many different decades the 40's, 50's and 60's with a splash of 80's. I just can't seem to settle on one, and am not at all impressed with current trends. I am self diagnosed with mpdd, or multiple decades disorder. My wardrobe is currently in a state of evolution and am finding my self drawn to mostly dresses and skirts. I also love music. I pretty much like everything except country and even then I have been known to make some exceptions. However, 50's rock and 80's rockabilly hold a special place in my heart. I am interested with all different kinds of entertainment, and love all things retro, vintage, or old fashioned. Hopefully you will all have fun sharing in this obsession.
