Shop Preview: Fall Cozy, Fall Fancy

From Sasha

Well, ladies, I am about to hit the shops here today, then off on weekend adventures-- but before I go, I want to give you a preview of what will be coming to our store early Monday morning! As usual, if you have questions about anything, hit me up via Comment or Convo and WE'LL TALK! Okay, here's a wee slice of the yummies:

Cozy-coze 70s wool cardigan!

Victorian princess or new waver? You decide! Hello LAVENDER!

Fall is a great time for a new bag... especially a 70s leather patchwork one! I am obsessed with patchwork lately. Call me a hippie.

And while we are talking accessories, let's not forget shoes. Check these killer-diller 70s tall leather Campus boots, in size 5.5:

Softest ever black velvet dress... the kind of dress that makes you perfectly fine with the fact that the weather is getting colder:

It's cocktail party time, ladies (I left Zouzou in this one for ya'll):

This dress must have lived a fun life before I found it, cause it made me feel va-va-va-voom-eriffic when I modeled it!:

Gorgeous 70s interpretation of a 1920s gown... this one is for tall, curvy gals, so if you have been waiting for something that's not teenager-tiny, check this honey out!:

Okay, I'm outtie! Hope you all are having a Fabulously Freaky Friday!

In The Great Republic of Rough and Ready

From Amber and Sasha

While The Great Republic of Rough and Ready has an very imposing name, in reality it is a small rural community situated just outside of Grass Valley. Though it is just a five minute drive down the road, it feels like worlds away. Rough and Ready made motions to secede from the Union in 1850, in protest of a tax on new mining claims and the prohibition of alcohol in Nevada County, but the community voted itself back in when they realized that they could no longer celebrate the 4th of July if they were independent from the Union. This doesn't stop anyone from celebrating "Secession Days" every year in late June, and there is an outlaw vibe in Rough and Ready that remains to this day. When my in-laws moved from the suburbs of the Bay Area to the foothills, they looked at a house there. Their conclusion? "It's too rough, and we're not ready!" 

We, on the other hand, were ready to take on the historical downtown, if for one afternoon-- with bags of vintage clothes and a camera!

This shot was taken just for fun in one of Amber's own (non vintage) dresses, with the *cutest* boots ever that Sasha found!

This sweater is another item that Sasha scored that quickly found it's way into a very grateful Amber's closet.

*These new beauties (aside from the stripey dress and the boots and sweater peeping into the outhouse) are all coming to the shop as fast as we can put them up!*
