The Sweet and Stylish Illustrations of Geneviève Godbout

When I first laid eyes on the sweet illustrations of Geneviève Godbout, I was smitten. With my love of vintage dresses, how could I resist her adorable girls bedecked in vintage-style shifts and shirt-dresses? Inspired by the likes of ModGirl favorites Orla Kiely and Nadinoo, these darling drawings are not just lovely to look at, but also provide a dose of style inspiration. Accessorized with flower crowns and 60’s style make-up, these lovely illustrated ladies could just as easily exist in the pages of your favorite fashion magazine or on the cover of a style-centric tome.

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.

    Really beautiful drawlings. The character has a simple yet beautiful feel, Kind of like in the movie Tangled.
