Birthday Sale

It's my birthday month! And the second biggest sale of the year!

Can you guess how old I am? ;)

Taking a break...

The Farm Chicks Antique show is just around the corner! I would just like to let everyone know that I have decided to take a break from being a vendor this year. 
I have been so lucky to be a part of the past 4 shows-I can't even tell you how excited I was to be accepted my first year! But I just need to take some time to focus on the online aspect of the business right now. Maybe I will have the opportunity again down the road :)
For now, here is a look back at some Farm Chicks 2013 booth photos of Carousel taken by Britta Hawkins. Enjoy!

"Couture Shoot" with Britta

Couture. You know, wearing stuff you would probably not ever wear together....and wearing it all at once in the name of fashion so you can do a cool photo shoot :) Like giant paper flowers, fur collars and vintage gowns. And I think this shoot feels a bit aristocratic. Aristocratic Fashion. Yes, that's what it is. Also it's Spring, so pastels and flowers, naturally :)

This shoot was styled by Britta, and it was super fun. My favorite outfit is the two-tone chiffon 50's gown with giant pink flower :)

Editorial for Nostalgia Magazine

In addition to buying and selling vintage clothing, I also often have the opportunity to style and organize vintage/fashion photo-shoots, like this one, which was done in collaboration with Nostalgia Magazine. 
I have also included a few vintage photos I used for inspiration in putting together the outfits and overall look of the photos. This particular shoot really needed to emphasize styles that were iconic for their time period but also styles you would have seen in real life :) 
It goes without saying that it would not come together without an amazing team of talented people, so my personal thanks to all of them that bring everything together! 
Enjoy the photos and check out the link to the article below!
