Feature Friday - Velvet and Shag

It's inevitable...everytime I list something, I find something I want to buy :)   I love vintage clothing. However, since I can't always find things to fit me (I'm a plus sized gal), I love to shop vintage home decor.  We recently moved into a house built in the 50's and there are some rooms with poor lighting. I found this amazing Mid Century lamp that I'm currently drooling over. It would go great in my bedroom.  I found it in this cute little shop called Velvet and Shag.  She specializes in  "mid century period pieces that lend a nod to the "Mad Men" aesthetic".

Check out the lamp I found

So, I showed it to my hubby (so maybe he would surprise me and buy it...yeah, right!) and do you know what he says???? I love the owl! Typical man....lost focus on the main point. hahaha.  Although, the owl is a little cutie too.

Go check out her shop. Obviously, she has some pretty cool stuff! Here's the link to her website which has links to all her stores, FB, Twitter, Tumblr and her blog!

Fall Trends - Jade Green

Among the many fall trends for 2011 are these beautiful Jade Green dresses. Why not go "green" and buy something similar in vintage? Save a TON of money and the planet at the same time!

Feature Friday

It's time to pick one of our many favs and feature it here on our lil ol' blog.

This weeks pick comes from Sally Jane Vintage. While curating our Oh My Stripes treasury, we found this ADORABLE red and white chevron dress. I swoon over it! Unfortunately, I am no where close to being a XS-S :( so I thought I'd share with you all. 

Her shop is so freaking cute too! It's nice and organized (note to self: organize our Etsy shop to look like this). It makes for some great shopping (did I mention, it's super affordable too) I didn't find anything in her store that I didn't like.

It would look so cute with some red wedges (that I just happen to own).  Seriously, why can't I be a size XS-S?  Ok, moving on....Accessorized with some red and/or white bangles (bakelite perhaps?) YES!  Topped off with some cute, white cat eye sunglasses! Oh hell, let me just go ahead and show you what I mean:

It's still hot out there (well, here in Houston it is) so this cute little ensemble would be perfect! 

Ok, so I featured a few more things today, but who's counting? I hope you enjoyed todays post and visit the shops featured.  They really so have some great items!

Have a great vintage weekend!

Our Weekly Fav - Victory Vintage Boutique

Hello fellow vintage lovers! As promised, here is our weekly feature for a new favorite item. This one is from fellow vintage seller and blogger Victory Vintage Boutique.

Brande is the brains behind VVB and is the sweetest and most helpful person we have met online! I hope to meet her in person one day. Until then, I am happy to read her blog and see her stylings every week. Here is one of the items she has in her shop right now that we've fallen in love with.

I even told her that the dress looks FAB on her....too FAB to sell. I personally think she needs to keep it. Have I mentioned how adorable she is?

Weekly Pick

Hello vintage lovers! I know, I's been a LONG while since we've posted. Things have been super crazy around here and we're just now getting back into the swing of things. I pinky promise, there will be more posts.

We'd like to start promoting others selling Vintage on our blog and thought...what better way than to have a weekly pick?  We like to see others succeed and this might be the way to help :)

This week, we're going to be a little selfish and promote our own item to start this weekly pick feature :O

It's an item we've had in our shop for a while and can't understand why??!! We took it to a pop up shop and had everyone RAVE about it. Unfortunately, it didn't fit the people interested in it. I for one, would keep it, but alas, it doesn't fit me either. *Mental note...schedule time for excercise and diet.  Hmmm, maybe not though. If it were to lose weight, I'd keep everything I find and not share everything with y'all! I'd also be broke. I don't think my hubby would like that. We'd begin to fight about money. My marriage would see where I'm going with this, don't you? I MUST share!

Without further ado....
