i love :: DearGolden


Buying vintage ensures that your outfit is one of a kind and that your piece of clothing may have a story that comes with it. However, vintage clothing can sometimes be frustrating. Clothes may not fit like you are used to and sometimes, you have to be willing to dig through racks and racks of clothing to find “the one”. Lauren Naimolo from DearGoldenVintage on Etsy helps you solve your dilemma. By sifting through all the junk to find the golden treasures, her clear images and detailed descriptions, makes vintage shopping a breeze.

wedding :: xoelle bow ties

Having a bow tie crush on these beauties by Xoelle! Seriously, why should brides have all the fun!? Xoelle is run by Laura who often calls herself elle. Thus, xo elle. She handmakes each bow tie using repurposed vintage neckties and button down shirts.

In her words,“I love finding items that are unloved, forgotten, discarded, and sometimes abused, and repurposing them. I love the history and sentiment they retain.”
