Poorly packaged. Came in the mail in a crumpled envelope, with more crumpled tape and paper wrapped around the earring. The earrings themselves were attached to a ripped piece of paper and looked a lot bigger and cheaper than the picture online. Very disappointed in the product, the shipping condition and the shop owners communication.

About

2011.

I am a third generation vintage lover.

Growing up I hated used clothes, but that never stopped my mother from dragging me to Goodwill on weekends. I come from a middle class working family. While my parents could have easily purchased new clothing for us (a good 70% of my wardrobe was new) the practicality of shopping secondhand was favored.

As the years passed and as my personal style became more defined I grew into a loving vintage frocks. I have mastered the art of hunting down exquisite pieces.

I want my findings to be enjoyed and treasured by others. There is just something so comforting about knowing that you own a garment that no one else can obtain right? All of the items in my shop are handpicked by me, they are a reflection of my personal taste.

Little Tidbits:
-I am a professional makeup. I specialize in editorial/fashion work. Brides are just too stressful.
-My favorite eras for clothing are the 40s and 70s.
-My favorite flowers are peonies and daffodils. Even on my darkest of days daffodils make my heart smile.
-I frequently have impractical tastes in clothes. I am forever purchasing formal gowns or ostentatious heels.

    When I'm not scavenging about for vintage goodies or making things I enjoy: cooking, sleeping in, a good book, writing, laughing with friends, and classic sci-fi movies. I am a dog mother of 2, a retro model, an artist, and writer.
