Etsy Update-10 NEW Listings, FNO LA A Current Affair Vintage Pop-Up

13 Sep

It’s been a busy weekend with Fashion’s Night Out, having friends over for a BBQ, heading to the Rose Bowl flea market, and trying to get all our NEW LISTINGS up!  So far I’m about halfway there with 10 new listings currently up, with more coming throughout the week!  Be sure to check out Castaway Vintage often, and add us on Twitter for latest updates as new merchandise is arriving and posting daily.

For Fashion’s Night Out on Friday in LA, I visited the Vintage Pop-up shop ‘A Current Affair’ opening party at the Cooper Design Space with over 20 high-end vintage vendors- it was great to meet local shop owners, ogle designer vintage pieces, and kick back with some free drinks.

Vintage Pop-Up:

Polka Dots

31 Jul

I must say- polka dots are one of my favorite prints.  I have thing for symmetry and clean lines, and primary colors- there’s just something so classic about polka dots.  I love stripes, plaid, colors black, white, red, and navy blue.  I have polka dot dishes, along with my huge red and white plaid living room chair, and my black and white striped bedroom curtains.

So when I first saw this jumpsuit it was more like a long mass of droopy fabric and dots with a belt dangling off of it shoved in between some long dresses, and I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it, it seemed really odd; like it could be a hit or really, really bad miss.  Even after I first put it on I had to do the whole send a camera phone pic text message to the boyfriend, since I didn’t know if it was “too weird”.  Well, it got his approval and after checking out the photos, and seeing that it sold out as soon as I listed it at Castaway Vintage I guess it turned out to be a hit.  It’s funny how seeing clothes on in a photograph gives you a whole different perspective than a mirror can. I actually really love how it’s got kinda this 50’s meets 80’s vibe with the off shoulders and fitted waist shape.  Too bad I didn’t get to actually wear it anywhere besides this little photoshoot for our new items going up on Etsy.  😦

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Had a great night out last night seeing local bands Black Apples, Dante vs. Zombies, and Grand Elegance play.  If you haven’t heard of them, definitely check them out for some good rock-n-roll.  Did some brunch with the other half today before he went to work this afternoon, and hope to now work on getting posted the rest of the items we photographed along with this jumpsuit that have been amassing over the past few weeks.  Then off to Orange County tomorrow to camp overnight, then check out some horse races on Monday.  Gots lots of work to do before I can take off for the fun!

New Etsy Sneak Peek

27 Apr

Happy Tuesday!  Did another photoshoot this weekend of some more great summer items coming to the shop this week, as soon as I can sort through all the photos and get them listed!  I’m a day behind now as I drank a little bit too much at a friend’s toga birthday party Sunday night and left the camera- with all the Etsy photos behind and didn’t get it back until last night!  I’m working all day today to try to get them up.  I’m obsessed with shorts right now and have some great fitting vintage denim basics from Guess and Levi’s.  We have an amazing vintage Christian Dior blazer, an awesome striped nautical romper, sheer cut out American Apparel style swimsuit- just better since it’s the vintage original and one of a kind!  Along with great shoes and boots, original vintage riding pants, and lots more great items!  Here is a sneak peek of what’s to come this week:

Vintage black Guess shorts

Vintage Nautical Striped Romper

Vintage Christian Dior blazer

Vintage Levi's cutoff shorts

Vintage Guess shorts

Plus more coming this week!

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!
