All these items, plus more, will be up in the shop by the end of the week.
I've been busy trying to find an apartment. Turns out I'm really picky.. I blame that on going to an art and design school, as well as Pinterest. It also turns out that Pittsburgh rental properties still think it's 1988, with wall to wall carpet, no natural light, and mirror-lined walls. I didn't get a college degree and a good job to have windows the size of a cat, nor do I want to see a reflection of my ass at all waking hours of the day. Mirror paneled walls are for strip clubs, end of story. I feel like by the time I find the perfect place, I'll be ready to relocate.
I spent some time this weekend designing new tags and business cards for my shop, mostly because many people have been asking me at my new job, and I've had nothing of quality to provide them with. The cards look great in person, much better than they do against the white background here on my blog, but you get the idea. Hope everyone had a great, and productive weekend, as well!
Here are some photos of my extensive vintage jewelry collection. While most of the pieces I have are just costume jewelry, they're still elegant, timeless and mix well with modern fashion. Long pendant necklaces from the 70's, particularly animal shapes, are my favorite. I also love anything obnoxiously sparkly, like mid-century aurora borealis beads and crystal tennis bracelets. Shop my vintage jewelry box in the jewelry section of Sticky Lipgloss Vintage.
I've been totally obsessed with the Instagram photo app for iPhone for months now. Thought I'd share with you a collage of my favorites over the past half a year or so. If you use it, make sure to follow me @stckylipvintage!
I've been finding some fabulous vintage in the past recent weeks. I love unearthing vintage from unique locations near and far. There are boxes full of clothing in my living room, as I go through them one by one to clean, sew, and bring back to life for the store (or myself, if they fit!). I've got tons of new items and really exciting ones at that, I'll try to post more pictures later this week. I've also been adding a few new items to the shop today, and last week. A grand sneak peek of some awesome things to come will be posted soon, I promise.
As for me, I was in Boston over the weekend with my boyfriend for his Godson's 1st Birthday party. And while I got no vintage there, I had plenty of fun wearing it. After all, that's why we love it. Hope you had a great weekend
We had such a beautiful day today, I had to go outside and see if I could still climb the tree in the backyard. I could, kind of. In other news, I spent the weekend in New York visiting the boyfriend and boating on the Finger Lakes. While there, I was able to get some new vintage items for the store. Hopefully they will be in stock by early next week. In the meantime, I'm going to eat some more ice cream and watch The Nanny until I fall asleep on my dog.
