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

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 by the way). The belt is vintage too! (pic 4) Best part? Cardigan was $4, belt was $2. Ooh la la! Love this outfit...

Vintage Cowichan Cardigan Sweater

So, I have this thing for vintage sweaters. That has been established. And I definitely have an affinity for wool sweaters, particularly of the quality variety, i.e. Pendleton, Filson, etc. I was lucky enough (believe me, I was hyper-ventilating when I saw this) to snag this last year at a thrift store. It's hand made, made of wool, no tags. Looks to be from the 1960s. Of the Cowichan style (a native-American tribe, which I believe is Canadian. Their sweaters are what began a movement of quality, thick, warm, amazing sweaters) this thing is THE warmest sweater I have ever owned. This one isn't for sale. But, if you want one just as good, may I recommend you to Filson. Click here ◄ for some gorgeous Cowichan sweaters. Of course, Pendleton ◄ has some great ones too. And for the right price, you have buy them on Etsy ◄. You'll have yours for nearly a life-time or more. Happy New Years Eve and Day, dear readers ...
