How to Wear Vintage with Style │ An Etsy Guidebook

 I wear vintage a lot. 

As in, every day a lot.

This is partly because of three reasons: I love vintage, I collect vintage, and I sell vintage. 

Because I'm fully immersed in the vintage world, it has slowly made its way into all parts of my wardrobe. And I couldn't be happier about it.

Also as someone fully immersed in this vintage world, I get asked questions about how to wear vintage.

Should I wear this?

Can I add this piece to my wardrobe?

How do I wear vintage?

Does this vintage item make me look like I'm wearing a costume?

From Instagram to my Etsy store, folks ask me these questions regularly.

So I wrote a little guidebook about this topic. And it's now available to purchase!

This guidebook is called How to Wear Vintage With Style.

It costs as little as a good cup of coffee and it will show you how simple it really is to add vintage to your wardrobe with ease and style.

And if you like thrift stores and estate sales, it can be extremely economical and fun playing treasuring hunting for vintage pieces. 

Even shopping for vintage via eBay and Etsy is rewarding!

I might venture to say it's one of the most fun parts about buying and collecting vintage to wear.

Check out my guidebook today: How to Wear Vintage With Style.

From belts to bandanas, hats to jeans, it'll teach you what to wear, how to wear it, and open up new ways for you to incorporate vintage clothing and accessories into your wardrobe in a snap!

This book is for guys or gals -- anyone wanting to add the perennial love of quality vintage into their wardrobe.

PS. I released a how-to guidebook called How to Open an Etsy Store just last month! If you love vintage like I do and love it so much you want to sell it, check it out!

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

Literary Quotes │ Vintage Typewriter │ Vintage Typed Quotes

I've been selling vintage clothing on Etsy for over 11 years. I've said this before and I'll say it again: it's the best "job" I've ever had. I love it more than words can say. Which is why it's quite apropos that I'm introducing a new item to my shop: Vintage-typed Literary Quotes For those who don't know, I'm a writer by trade. I went to school to become one and I am one now. From freelance writing to writing/editing as a content coordinator for a local magazine, to writing marketing copy, I do a lot of writing. So, when I had my vintage Royal, O tyle, portable 1938 typewriter repaired, I thought to myself:  Why not mix the best of both worlds? If I thought I loved selling vintage before, this might be the proverbial icing on the cake.  NOW I get to selling vintage-typed literary quotes!  It will take time, and maybe forever, to find quotes that I like and want to list. I love so many and I've read many books. But, simple words for ma

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
