Bluebird Patch Shirt

The needlepoint bluebird and flower patches came off an old tea towel or something.  I don’t even remember cuz I’ve had them for so long just waiting for the perfect project!  Well, it’s here and I can’t stop wearing this shirt. Do you love it?

Military Twist

california pixie vintage fashion

I could have a rainbow of these skirts! The waist is up where the waist actually is. The huggy hip, the slight A-line. Perfect femme in a strict military, sexy but not giving too much away, sorta way. I’m done with the hanging over the top drop waist stuff. Too bad this skirt is vintage and I can’t order more!  Maybe I’ll add them to the line and use denim w a little stretch! Who’s in??

You might recognize these pix from a previous post. I love how that many colors can work together when the fabric is so rich with texture and quality. Couldn’t resist posting them on their own.

Insta Mania

I’m on insta now! I just started up and I love it over there.  So fun…inspo one cool pic at a time! I’m getting ready to launch a small clothing company that’s a warm up for a bigger venture and instagram seems to be the perfect place to connect with lots of people that haven’t found me on the blog. I throw in some decor but my aim is to find people that share my same love of vintage fashion and dig my mix and match color packed style. Take a look…you might just love it!
