Coming Soon…..

Hi!

It is Kristen posting today. Katherine and I have been talking about taking her little blog to a whole new level. As  you know I own and operate Kris’s Vintage Clothing shop on Etsy, many times I come across vintage pieces that I can not get a few small stains out of and they make the dress unwearable in public. Katherine and I have decided that instead of letting these still wearable pieces sit around and catch dust, we are going to sell them at a very discounted price for your Dress Up Boxes.

These pieces will be available on this blog and on my Instagram profile only. Eventually I may open a second Etsy shop just for this purpose.

I hope you enjoy our newest endeavor.

Vintage Accessories with a modern dress

Yesterday I was playing with different vintage accessories while wearing a modern dress, I love to put pieces from different era’s together and see what the result is. I recently had my hair cut into a pixie cut (think Ginnifer Goodwin pixie cut), so wearing vintage hats has become much easier. Here are a few different looks.ImageImage.
