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 curated this dress and tea set to give the allure of princess tea party adult style. Using a 1980’s dress, beaded collar necklace and pieces of different tea sets makes this outfit seem feminine and shabby chic without looking to put together.
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..
1970’s Blue dress with sheer flowing sleeves and a rhinestone diamond beneath the bust.
1970’s White San Dales sandals
1960/1970s Silver and clear bead necklace.
This outfit could be worn to prom, costume party, wedding, tea/lawn party or to even church. I chose this outfit because I thought each piece would go well together or as Mom says compliment each other.
