Should I really sell these?

19 12 2009

I was prepared to give these up.. but the Metallic Top and the Skirts I am struggling with. I just have to keep reminding myself that I don’t wear skirts very much and that means that I should allow others to have them. Well, I hope you get a chance to own these lovely tops and skirts before I change my mind!

The Value of a Vintage Sweater

13 11 2009

Ah, the Art of the Sweater. In my opinion, one can never and I mean NEVER have enough Vintage Sweaters. They add a unique touch to what you are wearing no matter what the season it is. The same sweater can take you from a lovely layered look in winter to thrown over a swimsuit in summer. Plus when complimented who doesn’t love to respond “Thanks. It’s Vintage.” Or maybe that’s just me…

Granny Grunge

7 11 2008

Woohoo!!! I am up and posting again. I was super tired all week and my hubby just finished painting the newest “MODEL” to join our team. I haven’t come up with her super-model name as of yet… but I’m working on it.

On to todays topic “Granny- Chic” AKA “Faux-Granny” I sometimes don’t realize that always shopping in thrift stores and garage sales really impacts my fashion choices. I loose what is currently in fashion this month and just find things I love. Lately my hunny has been wrinkling his nose at my clothing choices saying “You look like a granny” to which I respond- I am 27, 5’10” and sknny. I couldn’t look like a grandma if I tried (without the help of make up of course)… oops. Rabbit Trail! So, When I was at Borders last weekend and say these cute crocheted mats on the headrest of the seats in the car next to us I thought “How Chic!!” Then I thought, those are totally granny. HmMMm. Hubby was right. I dress like a granny sometimes. But is there anything wrong with that? I think not! Granny’s rock! They have good smelling houses, tend gardens and wear really comfortable shoes. Maybe it’s time we start revering our elders again and one way is to copy their style

Here’s a Few Lady “Granny” Grunge Pieces new to my shop!

My New Blog

9 09 2008

This is my new blog. I have started this to keep my clients up to date on upcoming events, sales and also random bits of my life.

Me:

I’m 27

I’m Married (to my HighSchool Sweetie)

I’m addicted to the thrill of the hunt that is vintage shopping

I’m 5’10”

I’m obsessed with cookie dough

I’m in love the tingle of Burts Bees Chapstick and the light freshness that I get from Dove Shampoos

I think that’s enough to get us aquainted.

Please see included photo of what my fantasy life would include…
