Vintage Holiday Dresses

This post should be titled: Why I need an add-on closet.

Why? Because there are some days when I want to keep many-a vintage things I find. Or all of them.
But, I don't have the room. Don't have the time. Nor the place to wear them.

And much like Vanna White, I only wear my dresses once.

Okay. So that last reason is completely not true. But, the vintage dresses I tend to find (or want) are always dressy -- which makes them that "one-time-only" kind of dresses.

Take this holiday dress. I fit both it and I have no place to wear them.
Going to Starbucks in them could happen. But, to say I was overdressed would be such a gross understatement.

Barista: "Wow, that dress is awesome. Where are you going?"
Me: "I have to return some socks to Target."
Barista: "Oh."

Such a disappointing scenario.

So, what's a girl to do?

For me, I take pics to sell the dress at my shop on Etsy (which is awesome on so many levels) and then post a pic on Instagram, which is kind of like saying, "See, I really did have this awesome dress that I never got to wear out. Now. Anyone of out there want to buy it?"

Essentially, most --if not all -- of my needs are met through this arrangement.Works out well.

It's a wonderful life, people. I have first-world problems that aren't problems in the least. Thanks for humoring me as you read through this.

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!

Dress is for sale by the way--Add new heels and jewelry and of course, a beautiful wrap or jacket, and you will modernize and compliment your vintage just right!

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

You have heard of Etsy, right? They're the online site that hosts thousands of small companies who sell hand made items or vintage items.  I sell on Etsy (vintage) and I know how amazing Etsy and all the shops and stores are.
