Why fit in, when you were born to stand OUT? Rustic, Repurposed, Vintage Fashion

Can we talk a little about fashion? I know that is a subject that I never thought I would discuss here, but today, I am launching a repurposed and upcycled clothing line in my shop. Did I just say clothing line? Why yes, yes I did! I doubt my sweet Grandmama ever thought I would be sewing clothes, but over the past few months, I have been working on altering and recreating some one-of-a-kind pieces. I had started last spring and intended to launch earlier in the year, but things happen and I am finally getting them finished up, photographed, described, and listed in my shop. The first set of denim and lace vest, dresses and little girls jackets went live this afternoon!
A little bit gypsy, a little boho, shabby chic, rustic, with a little vintage and a whole lotta love thrown in! 

WHY fit in, when you were born to stand OUT ?

For years, I tried to fit in. Over the past few years (and especially since I quit working in town), I seem to have found my own style and much more confident in being ME. I used to never get comments on my clothing and fashion, but it seems when I starting creating some of my own outfits and not afraid to be different, I get more compliments on my style. I almost always get a compliment when I  wear this lace fringe vest! And now YOU CAN TOO! 

I like rustic, vintage, fringe, lace, denim, lots of neutral colors, plaid, distressed, aztec print, turquoise... 

Things you will never find me wearing: crazy prints, chevron, or zebra. Polka dots and leopard are negotiable, but must be kept to an extreme minimum. 

I can't be the only one with list like this, can I? 

A few years ago, I bought a brown zebra vest. It's soft, warm, fuzzy, and has two great pockets. I wore it a few times, but I never felt right in it. It wasn't me. I'll put it on and take it off and by golly, it will be in the next garage sale! No matter how comfy it is, it doesn't fit my style and I just can't wear it. 

 The vest are available in several different sizes and colors including the white / ivory lace, red, and black. This picture (below) is a hint at some of the other new items coming this week!
 A fun denim skirt, perfect for wearing with your cowgirl boots! No need for an extra slip or peekaboo lace extender - the lace has already been added to the skirt!
 How sweet is this little baby girl's jacket? That is the little bittiest doily I have and I knew it had to go on this jacket!

  Follow your Arrow and Be Unique!

From a young age, my Granddaddy always told me, 
"You're one of a kind girl, you are one of a kind." 
I get that now and I don't mind one bit! 

I hope you all love the new clothes as much as I do and hope they will fit your personality as well! 
Each item is one of a kind, and a lot of the lace is vintage, so there won't be custom orders / reproductions of these pieces. Please stop by my shop and tell me what your favorite new item is! 

Some of the dresses and clothes will make great back to school items for your wardrobe! For anyone in Texas, clothes shopping this weekend, I will refund the sales tax to you, since we have tax free school shopping coming up! (All other states are always tax free.)
