Feeling the Vintage Vibe

Between the chilly temps and my move to the new house, I've had cause to stop and really evaluate which direction my wardrobe is taking. I must admit, even though I lived for over one year in the fashion capitol of London, my wardrobe is looking a little tired. Comfort has been the priority, and I have a secret addiction to jersey knits and leggings. Black is the predominant color, mostly for ease of styling and hey, shouldn't I look the part of a designer (Edith Head anyone?)

I remember back in the day I used to collect and wear the most beautiful vintage pieces. 50's circle skirts with vivid prints were a particular passion. Well, I think I'm ready to get back into the mix. Maybe not with the same energy of my early 20's or college day thrift store habits. I have been delighted to find access to some great vintage stores through good old Etsy. Now that I've taken the time to look, I see just how many there are and how easy it is to shop. I'm giving a shout to to a couple of my new finds and always on the look out for more.

dear golden is right at the top of my list! I absolutely love her aesthetic and styling. Good price points and she also offers gift certificates. Here are just a few of her stylish offerings:

The next showcase goes to the etsy seller redhedgingerbread. I love her accessories and am especially broken hearted to have missed out on a fabulous "pheasant feather" print clutch. I also like all of the unique pins:

And on that note I'm off to look for more vintage finds..... give me a shout if you have any great vintage finds of your own!
