The Get List

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 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.
You can shop my inventory here!

How awesome is this coat!
Kind of serape-ish in the coolest possible way!
One of the best parts about having a shop on Etsy is discovering other amazing shops curated by fellow passionate vintage lovers.

Get Along

Untitled #2

My go to formula for dressing.
I like to match but not to be matchy-matchy. There is a huge difference.
Paired with denim and some boots and I'm done.

vintage soulmates


 Found not one but two! very similar pieces from Reaper Vintage in the Vintage section at NastyGal! 
I think it's pretty cool when you have a similar eye for vintage as someone you never met.
I have no idea who the vintage buyer is for NG but damn! We would have fun shopping!

orange you glad

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.

Bonham Plaid Heels
Available Only Here

These have a sweet creeper quality and lend some Autumn warmth to my rather depressing "Oh my God it's still 90 degrees in October" wardrobe right now.
Wearing these with cutoffs and a white vneck would look pretty bitchin, huh!?

wanda woodward

My hair inspiration will always and forever be Traci Lords in Cry-baby.
Her bangs are on point and the thick, fullness of her coif are what dreams are made of.
And her wardrobe is what's up too.

When you get all gussied up, who do you gather inspiration from?

denim moto

I have a sneaking suspicion that this denim motorcycle jacket will be worn much more this "winter".

When I bought this jersey, I felt like a total poser because I don't follow basketball.
But I got over it real quick when I realized how awesome and functional it is during our endless summers in Florida.

I'm still on the hunt for the perfect pair of denim but these interesting non denim bottoms have caught my attention to help me forget the never ending quest.

the art of shopping

Finally found the perfect breton stripe shirt.
When I say finally, I mean this search has gone on years.
Yes, I could have searched on the internet, clicked buy, and had it delivered on my doorstep in 3-5 business days...but what's the fun in that.
I'm not sure why, but I insist on searching and hunting and waiting and forgetting and then remembering and then finding.
But I guess when all is said and done, I know that I am sure that I want what I finally found.

now and later

Two things that I'm excited about.

1.) Wearing scarves. The resurgence on the runway got me digging through my vintage archives.

2.) These shoes. From the 1940's. That feel so fresh and relevant at this very moment.

I can never get enough of street style. Especially of the Stockholm variety.

good feeling

marc by marc jacobs s/s 14

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.....
Hanes A-Tanks
Metallic Leather
Grandmothers 40's Graphic Printed Blouses and Dresses
Grandfathers Golf Trousers and Sweaters
Mom's 70's Garb
Skate Sneakers

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.
Good Times....good times, indeed.
