My Xmas Wishlist. Even though I'm not asking anyone for this stuff. I'm more of the " I can get it myself, with my own money, that I earned" kind of gal. Either way, I will take advantage of all the Holiday sales!
When I finally got serious and started my own vintage shop on Etsy, I stocked it with my own collection that I was ready to part with. As I have ventured out and started really gathering inventory for the shop, I have come to realize that I gravitate towards separates. Which is kind of weird, especially since I've been in the vintage game for years and in a brick and mortar shop, vintage separates do not sell like dresses! AT ALL!
But I'm a top and bottom kind of girl and I have a pretty high standard when it comes to vintage..so I think it's a win/win for all the girls out there that aren't super keen on wearing dresses day in/day out.
I think living in a place where the seasons don't really change, the key to wardrobe happiness is changing up the colors you wear most. Mixing in some autumn inspired hues in breathable and warm weather approved clothing and beauty products should do.
My interest is usually sparked by nostalgia. My love and affection for vintage are tell tale signs of that. It's pretty cool when little pieces of yesteryear hit closer to home and ignite memories of my younger days.
This collection completely made me think of my version of the early 90's.
And by my version of the 90's I mean the.....
Grandmothers 40's Graphic Printed Blouses and Dresses
Grandfathers Golf Trousers and Sweaters
Mom's 70's Garb
Which is exactly what Marc did. He tapped into a part of my adolescence that immediately brought me back to Delia's catalogs/Sassy magazine/Shopping at Merry-Go-Round/Listening to Violent Femmes and Sonic Youth on repeat/Walking to 7-11 for Jolt Cola and the hopes to "run into" the cute boys skateboarding.
