If you’re as delighted as we are about our August vintage collection, curated by none other than one of our favorite bloggers, Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky, just wait until you see the inspiration behind the collection!
For her collaboration with our vintage buyers, Elizabeth gathered these inspiring images from decades gone by to convey her vintage vision. “I love vintage, not only because it’s sustainable and eco-friendly, but because I can wear unique and interesting pieces that no one else has!” says Elizabeth. “In high school I would sometimes show up wearing a top from the mall and see another girl wearing the exact same thing, so I started thrift shopping in order to find more unique clothing. That was the beginning of my love of vintage clothing.”
“My style inspiration is pretty eclectic” explains Elizabeth. “I love drawing from pin-up and rockabilly styles, but I’m also really drawn to the more bohemian, hippie styles of the ’70s, and even punk, grunge, and rock and roll styles.”
“My style icons range from Bettie Page to Grace Slick and Carly Simon, to Debbie Harry and Joan Jett,” says Elizabeth. “I think, mostly, I’m just inspired by women who do what they want to do, feel how they want to feel, and look how they want to look, and ignore what society tells them they should do, feel, and look like.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! See Elizabeth’s vision come to life and shop the Delightfully Tacky vintage collection!
