New Mod Dresses

27 Jul

Channeling a little bit of Twiggy, and the swinging 60’s, just posted were a few great new MOD authentic vintage 1960’s dresses!!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     I just love the simplicity of the mod mini dress- clean lines and prints, sexy showing legs yet still modest cuts on top.  So easy to wear, just throw on and go- instant classic style!  A little something for everyone in this mix- stark contrasting white with navy blue, micro-mini girly bubblegum pink, and classic baby blue gingham plaid- ranging from sizes XS-L!

Nautical

26 Jun

I came across this little vintage top/mini-dress, and immediately knew I had to have it for the shop!  It just really embodies everything that Castaway Vintage was based upon.  Vintage clothing but with a nautical feel, mini dresses, shades of red and blue, an anchor!!

I just absolutely love vintage clothing from the 60’s with a mod feel, and nautical themes!!  I couldn’t wait to list it in the shop, and then as I was going through all the photos to pick out my “top 5” as Etsy only allows five photos per listing, I just loved it even more!  I sell pretty much everything I find, and I get really excited about listing items I love in the shop to really have great items and so my shop reflects my taste and style.  However, I’m really starting to miss and regret letting some pieces go when I go into my closet and have nothing, so for now I think I have to keep this one!

New Etsy Listing: Rosemary’s Baby Dress

24 Jun

No, it’s not one of the actual dresses worn by Mia Farrow in “Rosemary’s Baby”, BUT is an absolutely adorable vintage 1960’s mod babydoll dress very reminiscent of the type worn by Farrow in the film.

Last week when I did a photoshoot and new listings on Etsy, they all sold out before I could even put an update on here!  But I saved the best for last, and am giving my blog readers first dibs on this awesome little dress.

I can’t decide which side I like better- the front, or the back!  They both have the cutest collars and detailing!

A Honeylane  original, children’s dress made by Sears!  Don’t miss out, buy it here at Castaway Vintage!

Classic Cape

23 Jun

I just LOVE this classic vintage 1960’s cape I found recently on one of my shopping adventures!  Just so simple, great color, clean lines- and it was made by an individual!  It’s lightweight- perfect for Spring and Summer, whereas most capes are heavier and best for the winter months.  I love how the cape looks with a shorter dress and showing legs- sexy, but still covered up.  The construction is superb, way better then most factory made garments made today.

I put it for sale in the shop, but seeing it again in photos I wish I kept it for myself!  It’s a funny thing, this selling vintage clothing is- I have so much access to vintage clothing and am constantly purchasing amazing pieces that I’m in love with, but them have to see them go.  It’s quite ironic that when I actually look in my own closet I really have NOTHING to wear- it’s seriously filled with cheap H&M and Forever 21 clothes from years ago…I think it’s time I start holding on to some of the better pieces for myself……

Be sure to check out Castaway Vintage on Etsy for other great finds- all of the new items have been selling out fast!

New Puppy + Etsy Update

24 Apr

I haven’t been able to post much this week since I’ve been busy with the latest member of the Castaway Vintage Family- my new puppy Bandit!  I definitely was not planning on getting a dog, but was at a friend’s BBQ and after a few drinks I fell in love, and this little guy was found wandering the streets and needed a home!  The first night he barked and cried all night long and we got no sleep at all, but he seems to be settling in for now.  Isn’t he cute?

I’ve also managed to get new listings up during this chaos, some really great dresses and jumpsuits, click on any pic to shop!

Film Inspiration: Breathless

7 Apr

Oh how I absolutely love Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless”, and Jean Seberg’s character Patricia in the 1960 film has such effortlessly chic cool style that is simply classic and inspirational!  I just love her stripes and cute cropped hair, simple T and cigarette pants….  I attempted my own Breathless inspired shot but still doesn’t come close to the original.
