Vintage Leopard Print

28 Mar

I absolutely adore leopard print.  Such a classic print that’s widely versatile- from 1960’s Mod swing coats, to 1980’s trashy Peg Bundy looks it always stands out and gives a sultry edge to any wardrobe.  I wish I could find more vintage leopard print, as of right now we only have 2 leopard pieces in stock at Castaway Vintage, though they are both amazing pieces!   Here are our lovely leopard pieces, and some favorite pop culture leopard inspiration!   The dress is spoken for an Aussie customer, but the amazing rare 1960’s-70’s Robby Len sexy cutout swimsuit is still up for grabs!!

Troncones, Mexico Arrival

4 Jun

So at the end of May I turned the big 3-0, and it seems as though every year on my birthday I get really stressed out about where to celebrate, will anyone come, and it usually turns out far more amazing than I could have expected, but this year I just did not want the stress or to chance things “not going my way”, and quite frankly wasn’t too thrilled about ending my 20’s and didn’t really want much of a celebration, so I decided to leave the country with my boyfriend.

Since we already traveled most of the world together, it was hard to find a place to get me excited about- besides maybe Italy, Greece, Egypt or Spain- all of which we definitely don’t have the budget for this year.  We were going to do Hawaii, but it just seemed so ‘touristy’ and Americanized, and expensive.  My boyfriend Ray is an avid surfer, and I love the beach, and I came across this little village of Troncones in Mainland Mexico on the Pacific coast, about 2 hours south of Acapulco, while reading a magazine in the waiting room of the vet’s office; which showed it as this pretty laid back surf spot.  Tickets and rooms were dirt cheap- I was sold!  And little village it was- dirt roads with pigs, donkeys, stray dogs, and roosters crowing at all hours.  Barely any people, pure sun, surf, and relaxation!  These are from the arrival of our trip, I’ll be updating my birthday in my next post!

Swimwear wishlist: Agent Provocateur

5 Apr

As I start planning for the vacation that I’ll be taking next month to Troncones, Mexico for my birthday, I had to start bikini shopping!  For the last 2 years I was lucky enough to snag a bikini from Agent Provocateur– one as a gift and happened to find another one on sale.  They just came out with a new swim collection that I’m dying for!!   Such amazing cuts and vintage inspired designs and prints- now  if I only I can find someone to buy one for me this year….
