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!!

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!

Polka Dots, Baby

3 Feb

I keep hearing about snow storms hitting all over the country, and having spent 27 years of my life in NY- I’m totally loving this LA winter and our photoshoots outside!!  I know this is probably going to be my last winter in the sun, as my East coast roots having been tugging at me lately, and I’m trying to enjoy as much of it as possible before I have to endure those brutal winters again!

I just posted this vintage 1990’s polka dot babydoll mini dress in the shop this morning- I absolutely adore it and as much as I hate to give it up, I have to make a living and my boyfriend is telling me I have ‘too many polka dots’ (really?  is that possible???).  It’s got great details with the dolman shape cap sleeve, empire waist, and full skirting.  Ready to be loved by a new lucky owner!

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!
