The Long and Short of it ~ Part 2

Some more 70s goodness! Can't wait to put these into the shop starting this weekend~
The last one is my favorite with a subtle bamboo print and beaded shadow neckline :)

The Long and Short of it ~ Part 1

Photographing quite a few things from the 70s lately. Here are a few sneak pics from a photo-shoot on Saturday morning with my dear friend Sarah. The bottom two are already in the shop! Part 2 coming later today~

Never to late ~ Shop update

A black and Gold shop update in Spring? Yes & let me explain. I have many closets full of vintage. Each one is dedicated to upcoming shop updates & approaching months. For instance, there is a closet filled with Spring colored dresses in beautiful shades of sorbet set aside for the months of April/May. There is another closet filled with 70s vibe denim shirts, leather accessories, nautical clothing & Tribal jewelry for June. At the end of each month most items are gone to their new homes but for some reason I have ended up with tons of leftover black and gold. Maybe because I hate photographing black or maybe it was my mood, I am not sure. So, here it is. Lots of black in the middle of March. St. Patrick's day none the less!
The fearless Irish in me!

Black and Gold. A new favorite color combination I think. I will admit that the traveling dress of Marquise de Merteuil's is never far from my mind...

Expand to full before hitting play. Thanks for watching!

Vintage Garden

A huge shop update today inspired by watermelon radishes from a local garden and the beginnings of shoots, tendrils and sprouts that are beginning to push their way through the blanket of leaves on the ground.

Add loose long tresses, pictured in front of the church with a Karmen Ghia in the background...ok.
