Eustis Estate, 1424 Canton Avenue, Milton, Mass.

In connection with our special exhibition Head to Toe, Historic New England welcomes art historian and Egyptologist Dr. Colleen Manassa Darnell for a lecture on crafting your own vintage style. Dr. Darnell wears vintage nearly every day, mostly from the 1920s, even while doing excavations in Egypt. She will discuss how to find the right eras for your personal style and how to make vintage workable for your everyday adventures. She feels that vintage clothing is a way to time travel by literally stepping into someone's shoes and experiencing a bit of what their life was like. Enjoy a 1920s-inspired drink and explore the house before the lecture. Streamline Antiques will be on hand with vintage wares to try on for yourself.
