From Rags to Vintage

My mother always said that if you keep your clothes long enough, they will come back in style. She was right. I still have items from junior high! I didn't say I could still fit them. My mother passed down her love for uniqueness and well designed clothes. "You don't buy outfits,Summer; you buy pieces."

When I graduated college and began my career, my uniqueness slowly faded. I was a "label whore". Only looking for name brands, latest trends, making an effort to blend in with the other adults. Even though theses garments cost a lot of money, my closet was filled with rags. These clothes were poorly made, overpriced and out of style the following year. That's not how I grew up. I didn't dress like everyone else. I was the one with the unique style-the cool vintage t-shirts from the Goodwill.

One day I realized that just because I am an adult, it doesn't mean I can't stand out and follow my own path when it came to my choice in clothing or anything else. About five years ago, I went back to my vintage/one of a kind fashion and never looked back.

This store began due to my eye for vintage treasures. If it was awesome, I bought it. 70% of the items I was buying weren't even my size! Soon my closets were filled with tons of clothes I couldn't wear. I just knew they were awesome and someone had to have them. When girlfriends would come over, they would happily have there pick.

So I decided to put my "eye" to use and spread vintage love to everyone, everywhere. For those women who want to be themselves whether they are at work or at a play date. Through Etsy, I can do what I love. Yellow Wood is for the woman who will travel...
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
-Robert Frost

    Fashion is not about trends or labeling; it's about quality & wearing what makes you feel good. The exclusivity of vintage, & the feeling of seeing a garment that is just for you is everything. I am a huntress who loves to share the wealth.

Additional policies and FAQs
Every items is meticulously measured due to clothing sizes changing over the years. All items are measured while laying flat and doubled. Be sure to compare your measurements to each item.

We highly recommended that you measure a similar garment in your wardrobe that fits you well and compare those measurements with those in our item descriptions so that there will be no surprises when your item arrives.

When measuring yourself, be sure to measure over your undergarments, not clothes.

Bust/Chest—Put the measuring tape under your arms to measure around the fullest part of your bust line.

Waist—Measure around your natural waistline. This is the narrowest part of your torso, usually near your belly button.

Hips—Put your legs together and measure around the widest point of your hip area.

Inseam—For this measurement, it's best to use a pair of pants that fit you well. Lay them flat and measure the inseam (the inner leg seam), from the top to the cuff.

Length- measure from the shoulder seam to the bottom of where you would like the hem to be.

If you are unsure about sizing, feel free to contact us before purchasing, and we will accommodate your needs as much as possible.

Boot and Shoe Sizing- Vintage boots and shoes can run smaller than today's fit. You may want to compare the prospect shoe's measurements to a similar shoe that you already own.

The length is measures along the footbed-- sloped or flat. The ball is measured across the widest part of the sole.
