Finally had a chance to photograph a few of the items that have been filling up our spare bedroom over the last month! It’s a terrible feeling to run a business and have so much inventory- just sitting around! Being out of town the whole month of May, then my boyfriend needing a new car left us car shopping all of his recent days off. Yesterday we were finally able to get in a photo shoot, and with our new camera I got for my birthday! I still have to edit through all of the photos before they can be listed- but here is one of the outfits that will be going up later today or tomorrow, and how you can still be chic without spending tons of $$. This whole outfit was under $100!
Just because you’re on a tight budget doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style, and vintage doesn’t always have to mean transporting your look into another era (though I love my 60’s Twiggy dresses and 50’s plaid!!)
This look is definitely a tad bit 80’s, but the shoes bring into the modern world. Sometimes too much vintage can be a bit costume-y, and just mixing in some modern pieces bring into a look that translates into fresh, not dated.
The hat I borrowed from my boyfriend, who bought it for $5 on sale at Urban Outfitters, and I bought the sunglasses there for $12.
The black lace bodysuit is very American Apparel- but I bought it for $7 at Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn- huge resale/thrift/vintage shop when I was visiting last month.
The belt I thrifted for $1- a little boy’s ‘Dockers’ belt.
The pants I thrifted, vintage Liz Claiborne, and these will be up for sale today or tomorrow are available now at
The shoes are from the Cynthia Vincent for Target collection- $30!!
Same look- with black vintage high waisted pleated pants- also for sale now at Castaway Vintage
More looks coming here and to Etsy soon!
