Etsy: The Sixties & The Seventies

I finally added some more pieces to the shop last night, but this time I went with a  60's/70's inspired theme! I know it's kind of a stretch from my own personal style, but when I first started thrifting for my store a couple years ago, this seemed to be the vintage I was drawn to. Maybe it's because it was so obviously vintage and easy for me to recognize, but whatever the reason, it's been hanging on my dress rack for way too long and desperately needs to find a home before Goodwill gets a hold of it. I priced everything super low for that reason. Most things are under $30! It seems like I get a lot of really retro pieces given to me too, either from friends parents or grandma's, or sometimes even because they saw it at the thrift store and thought about me. I never sell any gifts though! I'll only sell an item if they bought it with the intention of me putting it in the shop. When I posted these photos on Facebook last night (you should friend me, btw!) I had a girl offer to give me 25 vintage dresses that she was planning on dropping off at a thrift store. You already know what I said.

Since these looks were so far away from my style and since I was super duper busy leading up to this shoot, I got really lazy with the styling and put the girls in the same shoes and socks the whole way through. I'm a cheat and ripped the black shoe/sock combo off from the Orla Kiely fall lookbook, but then again, who could blame me?

Wow! This looks amazing. I love the little set and the photos look great. I actually like the same shoe thing going on... it give some consistency to the style and ties everything together nicely.

Even though you got "lazy" everything still looks beautiful and professional! Well done!

You know what I love most about this collection? Besides the beautiful styling and the awesome set you've created, these pieces go so well together and look so fashionable, you almost wouldn't know they are vintage! It's almost as if you just sat down and dreamed up this fashion line and just sewed it together, and now you're showing us your new creations. Love, love it.
