Post image for Trend: Mixing Vintage

We can all admit to loving vintage and a flea market trip can often be quite therapeutic, don’t you think? My wardrobe consists of 50% vintage 50% new clothing, I always feel it’s nice to mix and match my looks with old and new making an individual style that hard to reinterpret. Whenever I walk into a vintage store I always get overwhelmed with the selection – there are so many different styles from bygone era’s that it makes my head go all fuzzy  – so I pick signature items like shirts, dresses that I can take home and tone down with staple items in my wardrobe.

I'd say my wardrobe is 50/50 too. I love wearing vintage, but I hate to look like I'm in costume (except when I'm doing 'dressups' for my blog). Cute fashion arithmetic presentations too!

Post image for Vintage Tee Styling

Another amazing batch of vintage tees has hit Vintage Loves! We love the tank style of these vintage rock tees because they’re perfect for long summer days spent in the sun, when you still just want to be comfy and rock a tee! Not to mention there are some pretty amazing finds in there (*ahem* Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones…actually, every single one is pretty rad). We asked a few girls in the office to show us how they’d style these bad boys…and what better backdrop to use than a Vintage Wurlitzer? ;) Read more »

Post image for Diary of a Heart Strings Guitar

My main purpose for going down to Austin during SXSW was to take one of our Heart Strings guitars with me and get it signed by some awesome musicians – with the help of Yours Truly, who were there to capture it on film, we got Gary Clark Jr., Lee Fields and the Alabama Shakes to sign the guitar that will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the charity Music For a Cure.

Post image for SXSW Photo Diary

I’m back from South By Southwest, but I think a part of me is still in Austin.  Every time I go I fall more in love with the city, and even though it’s a little bit chaotic during SXSW it’s an amazing experience.  I spent three days taking one of our Heart Strings guitars from place, getting it signed by musicians (more on that tomorrow), all the while making some awesome new friends and hearing some incredible live music.

Great photo diary. It makes me want to be there. Doing a fashion editorial at the yours truly house would have been super cool. You should do a shoot with the guitars you are raising money with. Get some amazing girl musicians for it w/ FP clothes. Or could be models like the Duran Duran video w/ Cindy Crawford & supermodels of the 90's.

awesome lineup....built to spill is playing??? that is INCREDIBLE! also, a friend of mine used to play guitar in j. roddy walston and the business, they are an awesome band!

I have never seen this poem before, and its strange because this is how i feel whenever I leave a place I've been...I always feel like some part of me is left behind where ever I go...love this poem, explains how i feel perfectly about life.

I really like that quote, it reminds me of this one from the Lotus Eater: http://colehaber.com/2011/04/20/daily-lotus-eater/
