Vintage Dress Love Affair

I wouldn't be exaggerating if I told you that I'm having a serious love affair with vintage dresses.

I've been in love with them for years, but it has been growing. Big time. And I'm at that point in the story where the two star-crossed lovers have met -- and are still forbidden to meet -- and then meet again --sometimes in secret, sometimes not. (I may or may not secretly thrift shop too, as in "when I'm not supposed to.")

That's how I feel with these dresses.

Finding (thrifting, estate-sale-ing, word-of-mouth or otherwise) a vintage dress (from say the 1930s through the 1960s) is hard enough. But when I find one that fits me? That's practically like wining the lottery.

Twice.

Here's a small sampling of dresses I've found in the last few months that fit. I find plenty that don't fit me and they end up in my Etsy shop, which you can find right here! ◄ When they fit, it's the best!

They don't make dresses quite like these anymore and that's why I'm so in love with them!

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
