I want YOU to be part of this process.. heck.. you are THE SOCIETY GIRLS!
So here's the thing, how would you define a SOCIETY GIRL?
Even if you aren't someone who comments, please.. I would love to know your thoughts.
Many of you have been asking if the The Vintage Society Store will still be opening.. and I am sorry I haven't responded directly to the question. The time is now!
The Vintage Society shop will not be opening in the original form that I envisioned - at least not at this time. This is not sad news, I think with any vision and dream you always have to be willing to grow and change as things progress - and for me the change has all been great.
Ultimately, I was a cubicle refugee with a load of creativity bursting at the seams. My desire was to wake up and say, "I love what I do!" - and for me that was being involved in the fashion world. The idea for The Vintage Society had been brewing for years, and I felt it was the only door that would be open to me... that was until I started The Vintage Society blog. This blog represented the same ideals of the store, and it was here that I fell in love. Fell in love with fashion writing, styling and connecting with other Society Girls.
It was also through this blog that door after door began to open and instead of only one option - I had many to choose from. This is where my vision began to expand, and if I chose to focus on only the store I would limit myself.
Now with my Quiksilver sponsorship, I will be opening the store through trunk shows (a pop up shop at SiteLA that will sell all the goodies), but will also have the freedom to explore all the options.
The Vintage Society blog will also be growing.. and there are more details to come.. so stay close.
Thank you for always reading and for being loyal Society Girls!
The core essentials: skinny jeans, black bandage skirt (thrown on with the boots you will be ready to hit the night life), a few vintage tees, tanks and plaid shirts, a warm tunic cardigan and full length coat, and finally a pair of comfortable but versitale boots (over the jeans, under the jeans and with the skirt).
The fillers: my philosophy for style in a limiting situation is accessories! Bring along a few funky hats and head wraps to mix it up everyday and toss in a brightly colored scarf to make it all pop. Something stylish but also practical is a belt with a bag attached (yes.. a fanny pack.. but not), this sucker can store your cash and essentials when you've left the backpack behind.
Happy travels and don't forget to spread Society Girl cheer to all you meet!
