Boot Socks │ Winter Wear

So, I seriously said no to boot socks for a long time. Like ... a very long time. Why? Because I am a child of the  1980s. Boot socks, though I know this isn't true, are like leg warmers. And I know many of you are WAY to young to understand what a novelty -- and thereby abused and horrific style trend that came out of the 80s -- that leg warmers once were. But they were. And I thought that ship had sailed.

Apparently, EVERYTHING is cyclical in the fashion world. Not just some things. Everything.

In essence, leg warmers weren't "cool" to me. It's all jumbled together with Cindy Lauper (Um ... Google her people), break-dancing (Okay, this is still cool) and Back to the Future Movies (which will explain in depth what my childhood was all about).

But, leg warmers are actually kind of cool to me now, not for exercise, per se, which is what they were for in the 1980s, but with boots, and skinny jeans. So, this is good news. And Boot socks are really, really amazing! I found the best pair at this fantastic little online boutique called Closet Candy Boutique.

I LOVE them. Now, I need more, in different colors. Don't know how I lived without these before. Especially for me, as I have small calves and am always trying to fill in the boot space around my leg. These do the trick beautifully! They pair perfectly with a vintage top. A little vintage, a little modern, and all is well!

Perennial Vintage Turns Ten

Winter Sweaters in the Shop It's hard to believe for me, but on November 30th, 2010 I began my foray into the world of Etsy vintage. A lot has changed since then. And I don't mean just in the world. I mean in Etsy itself. When I opened shop a decade ago, there were so few sellers compared to now, and things sold much faster because there was such little competition. But competition is good. It makes us more creative and promotes grit: both of which are necessary for growth and success. And I have to say, this has been THE MOST creative, fun, rewarding, and exciting work I've ever had. I took a hobby and learned to make a little profit from it on the side. Even though this is a business for me now, selling vintage is still my hobby. While it's nice to monetarily benefit from it, it isn't the only reason I do it. The reason I sell vintage is simple: I love vintage.  I want to preserve it, research it, wear it, love it, talk about it, and naturally, I want to sell  i

Vintage Cardigans │ Fashion Cardigan Love

I seriously have a good "issue" with cardigans. Yes, they're in. But, they've always been in. And this one that I found a few weeks ago is no exception. It's straight from the 1970s, but exactly what's back in today with the almost bell-like wide sleeves, hood, and Aztec/Native American pattern. Hate to say it, but I'm keeping this one. Of course, if I find more (and choose NOT to keep those too, ha!) then I'll sell those. See how great it goes with jeans and boots from today? (both from Target.com by the way). The belt is vintage too! (pic 4) Best part? Cardigan was $4, belt was $2. Ooh la la! Love this outfit...

Have a Vintage Autumn with Fall Fashion

  The best time of the year is here: Autumn. And since I usually stock the shop year-round with sweaters, cardigans, and denim, there is no lack of it now when we all need them. I'm always, always listing sweaters. I find that folks -- also in the states-- are thinking about sweaters even when it's summer... in anticipation of fall and winter.  I sure do this! So because of that, I've got about 75 sweaters and cardigans  and jackets (for men and women) ready to purchase or nearly ready to be listed.  Now, just like I list sweaters in the off-season, I also list short sleeves tops in the fall and winter. It's always good to be ready!  I just found these two beauties. Gorgeous embroidered Oaxacan style blouses. In the shop as soon as possible, and I have more already available. And as for denim, it's always denim season. It doesn't matter the weather, denim is where it's at. I've never sold Wrangler jeans before, but I just picked up a pair for women and I
