About

My name is Jen. I have a love afair with fashion, clothing and most of all vintage! I've been designing my own clothes and buying and wearing vintage for about 15 years now. That love took me to art school and I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. It has always been a dream of mine to start my own business, and etsy makes that possible. I live and create with my wonderful husband, Mike, our four rambunctious kids and our two cats.

I take a lot of time to carefully choose vintage items that are in excellent condition and unique, striving to keep my pricing reasonable so that everyone can wear vintage. Using styling and upcycling techniques make each piece relevant for today. Vintage pieces for a contemporary era.

The pieces that I make are sourced from vintage fabrics and textiles. Vintage leather,…

I take a lot of time to carefully choose vintage items that are in excellent condition and unique, striving to keep my pricing reasonable so that everyone can wear vintage. Using styling and upcycling techniques make each piece relevant for today. Vintage pieces for a contemporary era.

The pieces that I make are sourced from vintage fabrics and textiles. Vintage leather, because of it's durability and its story, is my favorite to use. Creating is in my blood, and the creative process is so organic that each piece comes out different and is unique.

I grew up in a very creative family that allowed me many creative freedoms. I was a dancer for 10 years, art classes, piano, speech, acting...if it was creative I wanted to be involved! My mother had her own stained glass window business and my father is in landscape architecture. Growing up I was always drawing and creating things and I never wanted to look like everyone else. Designing clothes and accessories gave me a creative outlet and a way to express my individuality.

It warms my heart knowing that my treasured vintage and handmade pieces are touching other people all over the world! I love the idea that every vintage piece has a history and by recycling the old we are making it new and fabulous again! I want to inspire others to dare to create their own style! Step outside the box of convention and be an individual!
Be Green, look Fabulous and wear Vintage!!!

XOXOXO
Jen
