new in the shop

I’m selling off more of my own stash. I kind of hate the phrase “shop my closet”, but if you’ve ever wanted to do so, now’s your chance! For those of other sizes – never fear; there’s plenty of goodies today, including a vintage wedding dress I found at Goodwill(!). 50s Raspberry Skirt Suit Size L/XL / $60.00…

new in the shop

This shop update was a looong time coming, and I still have more vintage to list. Along with some gorgeous dresses I found at a costume sale last summer, I’m selling some pieces from my personal collection.  I need to be more realistic about what fits me, rather than stuffing myself into any vintage dress…

I may be just as insufferable as I was last year, but dammit, I think I produced some pretty good art in 2014. If 2013 was the year I “actually took on some semblance of a recognizable style“, then 2014 was about figuring out how to work my goddamn camera. These are my favorite posts…

new in the shop

Featuring New Look dresses and some really luxurious coats. I’ve decided to focus on selling fewer things at higher prices. I don’t just want to sell old clothes, oh no. I want to be known for my cache of real vintage treasures. I’ve always wanted to play the ageless crone with the ring-weighted fingers, rummaging…

she lives!

Josh and I are well established in the new place. Photo tour to follow as soon as I can find my goddamn camera charger. We found a two-bedroom specifically so we could have a workshop for my vintage dealing and his steampunk art. As such, I’m buzzing to announce the grand re-opening of Dressed in…

ode to buying stuff

In the name of my new tattoo (less than a week away!), I spent last night browsing Etsy for scandalous backless swimsuits. Never too early to start planning beach bonfires and other assorted illegalities. And I happened to find some old modeling shots of me from my days with Owlhurst Loft Vintage. The shop is…

get me out of here

So here’s the thing. After almost a year together, the fucktoy and I are finally taking the plunge and combining all our (other)worldly possessions. Come May, he’s moving into my apartment to share my bedroom, hog the covers, and clog the shower drain. I can’t wait. I’m thrilled to come home to my best friend…

brand spankin’ old

As usual, click on each photo to see its listing. A nice mix of realism (swaddle-licious wool coats) and fantasy (dreamy spring dresses). This coat has the most comprehensive story of any garment I’ve ever sold. Its wool was produced in Worumbo Mill, which closed in 1964 and currently holds a place on the National…

hats on hats

It’s been a while since I’ve truly lived up to my blog’s name. Today’s outfit is your fairly standard flapper wear, but I’m also showing off some of my vintage treasures. I plan to list all these hats on Etsy by the end of the day. Hold me to that, won’t you? Until then, I…

new in the shop

As usual, click on each item to see its listing! Also, in the name of post-holiday clearout and making room for the new, I’m offering all readers 20% off all items through January 31st. Use the code “eyebleach”.

elsewhere in witchery

Yet another inspirations post. I realize I’ve been blatantly clickbaiting y’all with secondhand content, but I think a little aspiration porn is valuable to the creative set. It’s the whole collective-unconscious thing: I’m priming my brain with artists more talented than I, simmering the beginnings of a metaphorical stew. Because I no longer participate in…
