I recently had the pleasure of visiting a Ermine Vintage on the North Loop vintage strip in Austin, Texas. I toured the shop and visited with owner, Elizabeth Anderson who is super fun and has an abundance of 1980's new wave and punk attire. It was great to see how excited she was to bring in new inventory. She showed me bits and pieces and I just loved that she hand picks every garment and examines them carefully. Her passion for vintage definitely shows throughout the shop and Ermine Vintage depicts exactly what Austin, Texas is truly about. Here are a few snap shots!
One can find a vintage outfit that will undoubtedly characterize each individual. As you walk into the shop, you are greeted with a plethora of men's vintage, from boots to Levi's jeans to pearl snap shirts.
I was astonished by the amount of super cool vintage girls clothing, purses, and accessories. It took me back to the days of The Cure, Morrissey, and Depeche Mode.
I couldn't be more excited about finding geometric shoes, fridge leather vests, rabbit fur coats, and lucite swirly earrings.
Ermine Vintage simply represents FUN, FUN, FUN! There is also a section of 1950's-1970's dresses that you can't miss and wonderful vintage nightgowns. Definitely stop by when you get the chance. It is right in the center of the North Loop vintage district. And, for all you out of town Southbyer's..."Don't miss out!" You are bound to find something for yourself and/or for a friend! I am so glad I took the time to visit this great vintage shop. Love Ermine!

Today, I would like to feature a darling showroom shop located inside Gypsies Antiques called Bloomers and Frocks. The owner of this shop, Rebekka Adams, posses tremendous admiration for vintage and branding that I am excited to blurb her shop.
One could describe Bloomers and Frocks as "Industrial Chic" carrying vintage clothing for modern women. It shows throughout the shop that Adam's appreciates good garments and branding from her price tags to display racks to antique jewelry cases. Each price tag describes the piece of clothing and each rack is custom made with cedar and galvanized piping. The cedar makes the shop smell wonderful! Here are a few snapshots of the shop:
Today, I would like to introduce Cosmic Consignment, a mid-century furniture store in the hip-side East Austin, Texas. Cosmic Consignment opened their doors in January 31, 2014. It is an excellent vintage shop for the Austin community and they have noticeably gown within the year.
It's time to buckle down and finish collecting those vintage halloween pieces. The Halloween tradition has become one of the most celebrated holiday's of the year and I just love an excuse to decorate using vintage decor. Today, I would like to share a few great Halloween table setting ideas to keep that spooky spirit alive with a stunning vintage look!

I spent the last few days in bed from dental extractions and every day that I lied numb, I awoke to a sweet smile over me. That smile came from my husband, Kyle, who I describe as a pretty porcelain skinned frenchman. Unselfishly, he checked in on me, iced me down, fed me soft food, and made sure I didn't overdose on pain meds. Every moment that he awakened me, I immediately thought of when I first met him. It was that same smile that I saw when we walked away from each other, right outside of what is now a vintage gastropub. That (almost) 6ft , darkish hair, blue eyed man was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen and as he smiled, I ran to my friends exaggerating that someday his surname would be mine. Here we are....almost ten years later and these two Ledbetter's are still smiling and taking care of each other as best as we can.
