Just in Case you Missed it: Out Most Recent Shoot

If you happen to be a Facebook friend of mine you've probably already seen our most recent photo shoot. Most of these awesome vintage pieces are in the shop too.  I've included a link to each item just in case you want a closer look.  I'm behind the camera taking the pics and Piper is doing the modeling.  She's awesome isn't she?  All pics taken right here in my new home that has turned out to be a great place to photograph!  If you have any questions regarding the mostly 70s pieces with some 40s and 50s mixed in, please don't hesitate to ask.  Reach me in my Etsy shop at

A New Home and A New Photo Shoot

Finally, Piper and me were able to get together again.  My family and I have been in the process of moving into a new home.  I forgot how stressful and time consuming this was but I sure am happy to be here!  I'm loving the spots that Piper and me chose for the photography and I'm able to get out props that have been packed for a while.  It will only get better from here as I continue to decorate this new place and hunt for new (new to me anyway) items for the home.  Stay tuned!

1950s/60s Full Skirt Dance Dress

1970s Hippie Cape and Pants
(to be listed soon)

The minds of both Piper and me are able to get together and create some stunning photography.  I've had a number of people ask who does the photography?  I'm photographing with both Piper and me styling.  And of course she's modeling.  So glad I've met a talented girl who see's the world through the same vintage eyes I do!

1910s Green Wool Edwardian Victorian Suit - A must see!

Several weeks ago I got up super early and drove to an estate sale about an hour away on the Florida/Alabama border, about an hour away.  The sale, conducted by my friend Justin and his mom Pat advertised Victorian clothing.  We just don't get much of that here in the deep South. I really wanted to get my hands on it.  I was probably about the 50th person in line although I got there an hour early.  I was still the first one to the clothing.....I'm fast!  My favorite find of the sale was this amazing turn of the century Edwardian/Victorian green wool suit.  What an amazing find!  And even more amazing was the condition, especially for a piece of clothing of this age.  Check it out!  

I've included the flaws above which are a small spot (about dime size) on the front bottom of the suit.  It is minimal and not really noticeable unless pointed out, but worth noting.  It is the pic in the top right corner.  Another similar one on the top front of the skirt, again not really noticeable, especially when worn with the jacket because the jacket covers it up (the largest pic).  The last is a pin hole on the back/side of the skirt.  As you can see, it's super tiny and hard to find.  How often do you find a piece of clothing made of wool that's 100 years old that hasn't had a "moth party" on it?

Head on over to SassySisterVintage and check it out on there too!

I will be doing a blog post soon on our most recent photo shoot.  My most gorgeous and talented friend Piper did the modeling.  You really should check her blog out!  Here it is
