Do you think of vintage clothes and picture your grandmother in a pair of lavender polyester pants and pink paisley shirt? You're not alone but they are so much more than that. I am obsessed with anything vintage and clothes are no exception. The trick to making an outfit work is to pair something vintage with something modern.
Vintage coats can be paired with a new scarf!
This cute 50's sweater and skirt has been paired with a starched white button down shirt. The hat was replaced with a bright yellow infinity scarf.
Each piece has been given an updated style with modern jewelry, scarves and more. Adding a plain white shirt underneath is a cute way to show off the vintage clothes but still keep it fresh.
Ok so this outfit is classic and doesn't need any help. I mean who doesn't want to wear a black and white matching dress and coat from the Fashion capitol of the world...France? and those buttons..swoon! But....I couldn't resist adding a funky scarf!
Be bold, be unique and most of all, have fun!!!
Recycling, or “upcycling,” of old
furniture is all the rage right now and with good reason. It is probably the easiest and most cost effective way to give your home a fresh look. In a lot of cases of upcycling furniture, the only cost would be the paint. Many people use furniture they already have, find on the side of the road, or find at a low cost at a yard sale, local second hand
store, or local antique store. Pinterest, one of the newest social media websites, has a lot of helpful tips and easy “do it yourself” projects for redecorating furniture, but the easiest method can be found in one of our Downtown shops!
I painted this 1970's table during our Friday Fest event. it took me about 40 minutes from start to finish. I used French Blue, two coats, then finished off with light wax. It completely changed this table. If there are items in your home you want updated, come see me and I will show you how wonderful this paint is!
