About

Fashion is about context

My etsy shop is a continuation of what I have been doing for the past 7 years when I discovered how much I loved the thrill of wheeling and dealing in the vintage world. I have always had a passion for vintage and second hand items but the internet has made it possible for us to reach those in other corners of the world and that is exciting. Vintage and the beauty of it is about context for me. An 80s piece was not as cool back in the 80s but when you contrast it with the style of present day and all the things that have gone on since that decade it suddenly has no meaning and beauty. I love the unexpected charm of something that has gone out of style and reappeared 20 or more years later to tell a new story.

In 2008 I moved to Barcelona Spain and in 2009 I opened a vintage shop there. I learned how much style varies among different cultures and I was also able to bring something different to the city with my American viewpoint and aesthetic. The shop closed in February of 2011 mostly due to the fact that I bit off more than I could chew and the economy not improving like I thought that it would, but it was an experience that gave me so much and only confirmed that I was doing what I was meant to be doing. It was an outlet to express my creativity. The curation of vintage pieces is an art form.

So, back in Austin and continuing on with what makes me happy. The whole process of hunting, organizing and doing business. I am not bored yet and I dont think I will ever be!
