Sequin Skinny Pants │ Vintage Sweater = The Perfect Outfit

Yeah, so have you seen the latest trend for the holidays this year? Skinny sequined pants. Here was my thought process on them:

1. Why would you want to wear these? They're a bit much.
2. Where would you wear these? I mean really ... again, a bit much.

Looked into them some more ...

3. How exactly do these fit? They look hard to try on.
4. Wow, I am in love with sparkle, though. What girl isn't?

Researched them some more and realized they came in black, a little toned-down and better for my style.

5. Could I pull these off? (figuratively- they look like they really hug the figure, hence more difficult to get off - literally).
6. Oh my gosh. What am I waiting for? I have to have them!
7. Ordered them from Closet Candy Boutique (my fav).

Yeah. It was tough, but I talked myself into them. I got a pair. And I wore them last night to my son's Christmas play. Kind of like a Christmas party. And I LOVE them.

I paired it with a great Diane Von Furstenberg striped sparkle sweater and tall leather boots. I had intended to wear the sequined pants with sparkly gold 4" heels. Alas, heavy downpour of rain doesn't work well with them. I opted for dry feet and chose leather boots. Turned out well.

So now, I'm trying to figure out how and where else I can wear these? Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Christmas party at my kids 3rd grade class (I wouldn't be over-dressed at all, would I?), New Years Eve party, to go grocery shopping, to go to the mall (duh), to pick up dry-cleaning ... wait, I never have anything dry-cleaned. Well, I'm sure I can think of some more places that people won't look at me funny for wearin them.

I mean, they are fun to wear. The reason why they're the latest and best trend. Cheers!

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

How to Jazz up your Wardrobe with Vintage Pieces

Do you like wearing vintage clothing? Or are you still trying to figure out if it’s right for you? Short answer: If you like vintage, you should wear it! It doesn’t matter your age, and it doesn’t matter what kinds of vintage you like, vintage is for everyone. Having sold vintage exclusively for over ten years now, vintage clothing and accessories are a huge part of my life. I’ve integrated them into my wardrobe for daily use: whether the entire outfit is true vintage (meaning every piece I’m wearing is legitimately old), or if the whole outfit is new except for the vintage belt I wanted to sport! But I get asked a lot by folks how to add vintage into their wardrobes and I thought I’d write about it. It’s really not a difficult endeavor to accomplish. It comes down to figuring out what you already wear, and switching out the new for the old. Here are a few very simple ways to add that perfect vintage piece into your wardrobe that doesn’t cost a fortune and makes you feel as unique as
