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.
We haven’t posted anything in a while due to life getting in the way, however we are back and ready to take on some new outfits and adding a few hair styles too.
My hair is finally long enough to do a few simple hair styles with. Mom recently has started using this particular hair style on herself almost daily because it is easy to do, looks great and keeps your hair out of your face. She used a tutorial by By Gum, By Golly Blog that gives the best description and pictures as Mom is a visual and kinetic learning.
As we didn’t have time, Mom just did a small hair bump instead of a small victory roll in the front and pinned it down with 2 bobby pins. She has found using cotton scarfs or bandanna’s work the best in our hair as it is very fine and soft. We also did curl my hair because it is only just now shoulder length and again we were pressed from time this morning. Mom will braid her hair while it is wet and let it dry which will give her hair some body as she can’t curl her hair to save her life.
It isn’t perfect but the look was achieved in under 7 minutes.
Mom spritzed a little bit of hairspray on the back to keep the fly-aways at a minimum.
I found this hair style to be very comfortable to wear while we ran our errands and it kept my head warm as it is only a balmy 20 degree Fahrenheit out.
I am sorry I haven’t posted anything new in a while, the weather this winter has gotten us down and Mommy couldn’t remember her password to my blog. Lame I know but it is true.
1960’s Lemon yellow straw bubble hat with wide yellow ribbon and bow topped with a piece of yellow patent leather or vinyl and matching button. Bright and cheerful perfect for a spring day in the part of brunch with friends in the city.
1980’s Heart dangle earrings give this outfit just a bit of bling.
1950’s Yellow linen wiggle dress. Front has a faux zipper pleated, the metal zipper is down the back. Matching belt that is the matching yellow on one side and white on the other, I turned it around to break up the solid color of yellow. This is beautiful dress that is perfect for summer time with its sleeveless look or add a cardigan and are ready for cool summer or fall evenings.
The bit of lace is from the petticoat worn under the dress, I believe it gives it a bit whimsy.
Merging several different eras together can give a pleasing look.
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.
What is I used: 1980’s Saks Fifth Avenue Dress, 1980’s White and Black 3 strand twisted necklace and 1950’s White Capulet (Hat).
What inspired me: I really liked the style of the dress with the large flower at the hip and the flower like shoulders. I chose the necklace because it matched the dress and it pulled the white out to match the hat as well as makes the necklace POP. The hat has a lovely black veil and rhinestone brooch.

Hello and welcome to my blog, I’m Katherine a 7 year old who loves to put together styles from my Mom’s vintage collection for her shop Kris’s Vintage Clothing which can be found at www.kvclothing.com.
Each outfit will be complete with accessories, that I choose myself for each article of clothing.
I plan on picking an outfit each week and writing a blog about the outfit along with links to each piece in my Mom’s shop.
Before you ask yes my Mom will be helping me write each blog and take the pictures, I tell her what I want to write and she types it for me. Thanks Mom!
