New Year's Eve Ideas!

Image
Hey guys, long time no see! Are you ready for 2015? I certainly am. 2014 was an amazing year, but there's just something so exciting about the fresh start that the new year promises. I'll be attending a party at my friend's place in Brooklyn, but won't be drinking too much champagne as I have work at 10 the next morning. I don't mind, though. It'll be nice to start the new year without a hangover. Hahah! Miscellaneous fun fact that I just learned on Wikipedia five minutes ago: NYE is also known as Old Year's Day or Saint Sylvester's Day in many countries. Anyway, Julep reached out to me and sent me this really fun nail polish tutorial. It's holiday-inspired, but I think it would be perfect for a New Year's Eve celebration. Perhaps paired with a gold dress and burgundy shoes, or a burgundy dress and gold shoes. Don't you agree? I actually have a vintage burgundy-ish dress and an old pair of gold Seychelles that I probably will wear tomo

WEARING • Work It Out.

Image
Hey, I got a job yesterday! I'm grinning like a little kid in these photos and I think it's because I'm actually happy about working. It's a part-time gig at a second-hand store, which means I'll still have plenty of time to work on the shop . Win/win. Speaking of winning (and in case you missed it on Instagram ), I got new glasses! Firmoo sent me another pair of glasses to try out, and these are definitely my favorite so far. I will be wearing them all winter long. Check back tomorrow for a giveaway from Firmoo ! I'm off to my second day at work. Wish me luck, babes. glasses: c/o Firmoo top: Forever 21 sweater: New York & Company (a hundred years ago) jeans: Gap shoes: Minnetonka bag: Madewell Camden Satchel

DIY Audrey Horne Halloween Costume!

A few days ago, I was watching "Twin Peaks" and realized just how easy an Audrey Horne costume would be to pull off. If you need a last minute costume, look no further. Need: short hair ( or fake it with a faux bob ), vintage dress, red lipstick, eye pencil for a severe brow and beauty mark, cigarette, HBIC attitude.

Home! Sweet Home!

I'm home I'm home I'm home! Actually, I've been home since Tuesday morning. I have lots to share about my trip, but that will have to wait for now. I realized that my shop listings are in all sorts of disarray, so I decided that today is the day I will redo all of them. I likely won't finish it all in one day, but here I am on the floor, up to my neck in vintage dresses. Wish me luck! In the mean time, you can save me some work and use code "AWT25" for 25% off your order in the shop . Later, babes.

While poking around the site recently, I realized that many items are similar to vintage items in my shop, especially that last pair of shoes! All the items in my shop are less expensive than Madewell, too. ;) Top Row 1 • Vintage Taupe Sweater Oversize Fall Sweater Size Medium 2 • Vintage Silk Blouse • Sheer White Silk Blouse with Floral Design • Size Medium / Large 3 • Vintage Wool Sweater Autumn Fashion Mens Size Large 4 • Vintage Denim Vest • Men's Jean Vest Bottom Row 5 • Vintage Grey Striped Dress • Size Medium / Large 6 • Vintage Pants • Sandy Brown Slacks • Pendleton • Size 4 7 • Vintage Black Heels with Scalloped Edge • Size 7 8 • Vintage Black Flats Lace Up Ballerina Style Size 7.5

WEARING • Cat Eye and Animal Print.

Image
Hey friends! Things have been pretty quiet here lately, huh? Since getting back from the UK (about a month now?), my life has been in disarray. I've had trouble figuring out a daily/weekly work schedule, my great aunt passed away, I started working part-time for a friend a few days a week, the cats have been psychos, and sales have been slow (which is discouraging). Often I find myself waking up at five in the morning, ready are raring to go. Then suddenly it's 4:30 and I'm asking myself, "Where did the day go?" I've also (finally) been looking for an apartment and (unfortunately) looking for a day-job. At this point, I know I can't afford to live on Etsy alone, which sucks but things could be worse. In the past, I've found that I work better on my vintage/prints/blog when I'm working outside of my house as well. Something about the structure of my day and planning out when I do what just worked better for me. So we'll see how these ne
