About Me/Features/Contact

Hi there!

I’m Francesca Bond. College student, journalist, style-lover, champion thrifter, workaholic and total nerd.

vintage lillies is my creative outlet where I combine my love of personal style, writing + photography. This blog is a range of things from my favorite outfits and trends, to my takes on current events, to short anecdotes about life. Follow along, I’ll try to keep in interesting.

I’ve been blogging since I was about nine years old (yes I know, that blog was very embarrassing and only my closest friends know the URL) but nonetheless blogging has always been a passion. I’ve been writing on this blog since the summer before I started high school and it’s remained one constant thing ever since. We’ve been through multiple schools, jobs, dreams and really bad outfits together. Through it all, I’ve always been the girl with the weirdly named blog no one really understands. (Hey, me either.)

    Hi. I just wanted to let you know someone is using your pictures from this blog on a fake Facebook account. If you want to know the name of the “person” so you can report it, I have a link to their account.

    Hey! I found your website and fell in love. I have been wanting to create a website for a while. I created a wordpress account called vintagelilacs.wordpress.com ( my photography acount on instagram is @vintage_lilacs . and has been for awhile im not stealing your username or anything.) so I was wondering if you could give me some tips on how to create this website and maybe check mine out?

      Hi! Thank you very much I’m glad you like my website! I checked out your blog and instagram, they’re very nice! You’re very good at photography! My advice to you would be to update your blog with more of your photography, and in all of your outfit posts try to include at least one full body shot, therefore people can see your whole outfit! Other than that, just make sure you post what you love and have fun doing it! Good luck! 🙂
