Etsy Update: Spring Fling

4 Mar

March is here, and Spring is just around the corner- we have been adding tons of new listings perfect for Spring all week at Castaway Vintage!  Finally we’ve acquired a somewhat professional indoor lighting system since our house is so dark surrounded by foliage, and our outdoor photo shoots were becoming less and less frequent with my boyfriend’s busy work schedule and preference for surfing on days off over taking pictures ( I don’t blame him)!  So now we can finally get caught up with the 2 full rolling racks of vintage clothing taking over our spare room, and bring new listings pretty much daily to the site!!

Check out a few of our new Spring listings still available newly listed, though they are selling fast!

Sheer Seventies

1 Feb

It’s not very often that I gravitate towards 70’s style dresses, as most of my taste tends towards more of a 60’s or 90’s edge, though I LOVE 70’s high waisted jeans and wedges!!  I found this dress last week and just really loved the sheer delicate fabric with the pleating on top, loose airy sleeves, burgundy tones and mixed prints.  After I put it on to style for the shop, I’m wondering why I don’t have more 70’s dresses- this is super cute!  I guess I’m just a person of habit and tend to steer away from ‘the unknown’ and re-buy the same sort of thing that I KNOW I like (polka dots, stripes, plaid, 60’s mini dresses, 90’s babydoll and bodycon).  I guess 2011 is about venturing out a bit more, and hope to reflect that in the shop with a bit more variety, while staying true to style integrity.  I hope you like this dress as much as I do, this and more up now at Castaway Vintage!

Stripes

Stripes stripes stripes.  I love the simple clean contrasting lines.  Always classic, but since I already own so many stripes and striped tops, I’ve decided to part with this one and it’s up for sale in the SHOP now!

Lilli Diamond

19 Aug

Here’s a preview from our latest photo shoot taken this week for Castaway Vintage, as I’m currently editing and resizing photos like a madwoman to get them listed by the weekend.  I usually end up with somewhere close to 100 photos for one item, which then needs to get pared down to just 5 for the Etsy listings!

This one is a gorgeous 1970’s California designer Lilli Diamond Maxi dress, which even though I never wear long dresses, I just had to get this when I saw it!

Stripes

2 Aug

I don’t think it’s any secret that I love stripes, just as much as I do dots, plaid, and all things nautical.  I’ve brought my love of stripes to the Castaway Vintage shop, via 5 new listings ranging from a little hot pink 90’s crop top, a classic red and white striped t, a red, white, and blue 80’s bodysuit with tags still attached, a cool red and white summer beach jacket, and an amazing military/flight uniform style dress!!  Check out the listings here!
