    A wee Etsy Update

    1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 Well, I have finally updated my Etsy shop with a few more goods! I’ve been so bad lately about keeping up with posting new things every week, as was my goal, but today I had a really great vintage-hunting run that reminded me to update with more listings. And these are all things that I would keep if they fit. Seriously. That Peter-Pan collar dress is like… so cute, and stretchy, and just adorable in every way, and I wish it fit me. Same goes for the blue floral blouse, and that red skirt! Also, the green dress? Gorgeous.…

    Rainy days and pretty dresses

    It’s raining again. Well, not again. Still. It’s  been raining ALL week, and I’ve been working hard on getting Asa to sleep at night AND take good naps during the day (something that seems kind of impossible right now; it’s either or at this stage), so I have no outfit pictures for you. I hope you don’t mind a shop update instead! I’ve been making my way through my stock of dresses right now, because who doesn’t love a good dress? You can click on any picture to be taken to the listing. I’m also excited about these because there are good size options; I feel like most of the…

    Borrowing

    One of the nice things about having photographed the vintage in my shop is that on rainy days like today, I can borrow the pictures for an outfit post! This is how I’ve always imagined wearing this skirt, but it doesn’t fit me (it’s a few inches too small in the waist.) The delicate colors just had to be worn with this lace top, and  when I went to style the outfit for the shop, I immediately knew what I’d do. Of course, you can’t see that it’s not actually buttoned, thanks to the belt, but uh… yep. I feel like my hair is very mermaid in this post. I…

    Owl and the Boy Vintage

    It’s here! This last weekend, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I worked hard to get some listings going, and after consultation with a friend and also some posts on Facebook, I decided to open up shop today! I’m pretty excited about this. For some reason, I almost love finding and styling vintage to sell better than finding and styling vintage to keep. It’s just a really fun process, and I’ve always enjoyed the behind-the-scenes process of styling, shopping, and photographing for things other than personal style. So, what can you expect to pop up in the shop? Well. Right now there are nine items up, most of which are…

    New Endeavors

    So this last week, I have been working really hard on something I’ve been wanting to do for ages: opening an Etsy vintage shop! As I have mentioned before, I have an enormous pile of vintage, mostly skirts, that I have been wanting to sell. I’ve tried using a different platform, but I didn’t put much heart into it and I wasn’t willing to invest a little in order to really get it going, so it never amounted to much. But this last week I decided to take the plunge and go with Etsy, and put more effort into taking better pictures of the items, styling them, and expanding the…
