Instead of a purple people-eater, this blog is a purple plain-things-eater, because it destroys all wardrobe items that are plain and instead replaces them with POW! Click the pictures to go to the shops.
Sorry I haven't been updating lately, guys. We shot something like 4,000 product shots for TV. We don't have thousands of products, more like hundreds, but it has been exhausting and now we have to go through and pull our selects and color balance them and stuff. BLAH.
My next blog post is going to be about why vintage from online stores is so gosh-durn expensive. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears goes into it, let me tell you! The band, Blood, Sweat & Tears, actually. They come over and help us style all of our shoots.
That's not true; I don't know why I lied to you.
I am clearly loopy from neglecting proper sleep. Do you guys want to see a sample of our product shots? They are kind of awesome and hilarious and our model is a mega-babe super-fun unicorn.

Also, thank you SO much for your input on the previous post. In response to the fine feedback, I am proud to report that we are:
1. Including "style with" tips on every single item, to show you how to wear our crazy pieces! Woohoo.
2. Including a variety of sizes. I know this is a big deal. It's really hard to find vintage in larger sizes, as people were tinier the further back in history you go, but we are doing our best to include a variety. Off the top of my head, I know we have a phenomenal southwestern-style jacket in size XL, a gorgeous nude and sheer black maxi dress in a one-size-fits-most up to an XL, a pair of really cool floral print denim shorts from the 1990s in a size L, and some awesome boots in a size 9. I know there is even more than that, but I am spacing at the moment.
3. Offering fair pricing. As mentioned above, a lot of time and money goes into selling vintage, so we won't be able to make every piece super affordable (we have already invested thousands of dollars into this whole thing and we haven't even launched!), but we are making an effort to include a fair range of items. While a lot of items will fall between $50-$200, there will be pieces more in the $30 range, and as you all know, liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter will give you the chance to shop before anyone else, and to use a huge discount code. That should help a little. Sorry -- we can't do anything about shipping. We will charge cost on international shipping, but it shouldn't be too outrageous, especially because the US dollar is weak internationally, so it will seem like even less money to those of you in Australia or Great Britain or Japan (which are the most expensive places to ship). We will ship everywhere, though, worldwide.
For those of you who just look at photos and don't read (no shame, I do it occasionally, too):
THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF ME. IT IS A MODEL.
PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT TELLING ME HOW HOT I AM. SHE IS HOT, OF COURSE. SHE IS PAID TO BE HOT.
