The shipping time was fine. The boa was shedding. It was not very good quality. The hat was very cute.

From Childhood Fantasy to Victorian Parasols on Etsy
My story begins as something akin to a C.S. Lewis novel in a spare room closet. I was four years old in search of a unicorn (my grandparent's over-stuffed plush toy with the floppy horn).
I found instead in the dark corners discarded cloth - delicate, white, and beautiful. Forgetting search all things mystical, I arrayed myself in adventure. I walked down my grandfather’s hallway with a sheer pillow case on my head and a curtain across my shoulders, I was a beautiful bride.
From that moment on, everything was a costume. We played dress-up for hours. As the years went by, my childish obsession turned into a job opportunity as a walking exhibit at our local museum. I was in the paper. I was elated. I was inspired. My friends and I volunteered at festivals and events, all in outfits made from recycled materials. One day someone mentioned Etsy and that was just the beginning!
I work with many materials, fabric, metal, and plastic. Whenever I find affordable vintage, I restore and add it to my shop. I love to work with recycled materials, making something new from something old excites me. Recently, we started a new line of upcycled prom dresses, altering resale shop dresses to create an entirely new look.
Enjoy browsing and let me know if I can assist with a custom creation!
