ALL STARRED & SPANGLED

(everything thrifted from head to toe)
vintage American Flag suede fringe vest, vintage B&W polka dot dress, vintage Spanish Moss American Flag shorts, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, vintage DIY stacked platform t-straps, vintage studded Texas Lone Star bag. Theresa's wearing vintage sequins American Flag vest, old TopShop dress, vintage floral fringe capelet, vintage leather backpack purse, vintage change belt and her own shoes, hat and jewelry
What can I say I LOOOOVE a good Americana overload!! Our outfit were handpicked from 1000s of items at my studio.(Told you had a bunch of shit.) 
I decided to go fuck around with my friend Teresa who I've known forever but has become closer due to blogging. As a blogger no one really understands where you're coming from unless they're in the same boat. To other people it can easily come off as conceited, you're obsessed with taking pictures of yourself or you're just desperate to make it or be known. To me it's just another way to reach out to other people who love what I love...VINTAGE!! It's no different than having a Facebook or being on any other social networks. So THANK SATAN for Teresa cause she gets me! 
Okay blah blah blah about how no one understands me...tear, hahaha!!
 So far the week has kicked off in high hopes. I already have a pile of shit I wanna sell. I just have to get the pictures taken and post them on ShopVintageVirgin. SO EXCITED!! Also since I just got a brand new car, Joel has decided to take a road trip to NYC and go thrifting along the way. I can see my girl, Darine and go shopping in different states and small towns. Now I'm really looking forward to the Summer. YAYS!
Before I go I just wanted to thank all my readers for all the love you show me on a daily! You guys seriously make blogging a fun experience. I look forward to meeting and greeting with you guys one day.
FINGERS CROSSED,
Virgin

I am a new reader and quickly fell in love with your blog. OMG. LOVE IT it is not an everyday must read. I have always loved things from previous times, it just takes to another place, I never knew anything close to the word vintage until lately though. Anyway, I completely understand what you were saying about others not understanding they don't really, but blogging is great and way super way to make friends who are into the same things you are into. Finding blogging, other bloggers who are just obsessed as I am with vintage is a Godsend to my sanity. I love your outfit here it simply screams vintage. It makes my heart flutter.

I totally feel you on this post. :(

I am in Montrose too, and although I know there are hip chicks out there to finally meet and shit, I stay anti-social and kind of bummed and just blog from the window of my room where my pad is on West Gray and kind of stick to that because I'm like: WHYYYY? Why don't peeps understand I am obsessed with making jewelery and feathers, haha

Why don't they understand I'm taking pictures of myself because I'm the only person around, haha

Anyhow. You totes inspires me, boo.

I'M JUZ SEZZIN'. I am always so impressed with how your blog is building building building....

<3

Chloƫ said...

I am so jealous of all the amaaazing locations you get to shoot in! This old wooden shack is like, the perfect backdrop for your Americana outfits! Love love love everything you are both wearing. xxx

Diamond Bracelet said...

Where was this shoot taken? It is the perfect backdrop to your Americana looks!

do you incorporate vintage diamond jewelry like bracelets into your wardrobe?

One of my favorite diamond bracelets is a unique vintage circle shaped one! It can transform a vintage look into modern!
