Dresses for Successes

I've talked about this before. How vintage dresses are pretty much the best thing that ever existed.
For years, dresses were kind of a "well, it's not the right occasion," type of thing for me. 

Not no more!

All that and some horrid English to tell you that when I find amazing vintage dresses -- which, trust me when I tell you that they're really hard to find -- I'm either selling it to you or keeping it.

Or keeping it and then selling it.



This 60s olive green corduroy dress? Yeah. Just a tad big for me. But, think that's going to stop me from wearing it? Psshh. No way. Once I've loved it some, I may sell it. (Light on the "sell" and heavy on the "may.")

I'm going to switch out this belt -- because it's like the size of Texas-- and wear one of mine, a wide, black leather one along with some oxford flats. Perfect Fall outfit for Cali, and if cooler, add a black turtleneck. I'll have to Instagram that outfit!

And it's vintage new old stock (NOS), never been worn, so I'm pretty partial to wanting to wear it, although that would be the very reason NOT to wear it. But, life's too short for me to give NOS to other people some days. Like today.

Anyway, Fall is in the air. Not literally, but in my head. Kids are back to school, I noticed a crispness in the air this morning during my run: it's close. Closer than it's been since last Fall. 

I'm counting down the days to sweaters and boots. And I have a BAZILLION sweaters in my shop, ready to go!

Come. Visit. Now. Find said sweaters. Here.◄

By the way, I'll be having a 20% off sale September 1st through Labor Day, 5th of September! So, if you're waiting to shop, that will be the time!

Happy future Fall, folks!

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
