I came across this amazing pic and kinda fell in love. I wandered over to Etsy to see if I could feed my new flamingo fever. Who knew there’s so much great flamingo goods to be had. Such a great pop of colour!
This was a style shot we did pulling from my personal vintage fashion collection. Since fall is in the air, I thought we would do an artistic style post showcasing a brown, black & gold palette.
I swear I wasn’t sitting around dreaming about a wedding but something made me search vintage wedding dresses on etsy. I totally underestimated what I found. So many beautiful and timeless pieces and all under $600! Of course if the stars align and you fall in love, it has be your size (the dress, not the man). The truth is that I was never a wedding day dreamer until the invention of Pinterest and I’m single so it hasn’t taken over my brain just yet but that being said…..I do envision a very vintage inspired dress. I’m gravitating towards the style of the 1950’s but I think these would all make a bride stunning. The key to wearing vintage – formal or casual, is to mix it up with some modern styling. Here’s my picks for what you may pair up your beautiful vintage dress to complete the look.
I’m not so sure there’s enough detail to actually use the recipe (is that 1/2 tsp. of salt or sugar?) unless you’re a true freestyle chef but they sure do look nice.
Go on and pick one up from her Etsy shop.
When you think of one of a kind, you also may think of Etsy. Which is why it’s only natural that Etsy and OOAK are working together. Etsy did a great job of pulling together an online look book that features 40 artisans that will be at the show who also have Etsy shops. Great idea!
Of course I checked it all out and they were all great. I encourage you to take a look and do some pre-show window shopping so you can better plan your big day at the show. But until then I went and pulled some of my favourite items from the featured artists. (PS: I have those beautiful gold dipped earrings and love them!)
