Time for another giveaway~
The lovely Anne from Thrush Vintage has kindly teamed up with me for
this lovely giveaway.
She's offering up one knit hair bow each to 3 lucky readers!
In Cranberry,Cream and Saffron.
So each winner will get a different color knit hair bow.
Perfect to match with outfits or to add a dazzle touch to your hair.
Here's first a short interview I did with her.
1.A short introduction on yourself.
My name is Anne and I run Thrush Vintage out of Denver.
2.What started your love for vintage?
I've always loved vintage clothing, starting when I was in high school. I did a lot of thrifting then, and remembering what I gave away when I went off to college breaks my heart a little bit. Why did I ever think that giving away a 1960's yellow cotton a-line skirt with embroidered birds all over it was a good idea?
3.Do you have an absolute favorite piece?
I have many favorite pieces now, but the one dearest to my heart would have to be a 1950's black cocktail dress with a lace inset collar that makes me kind of swoon every time I look at it.
4.Can you describe your process for selecting items for your store?
When I'm picking an item for my shop, I consider lots of things. Sometimes something will just pop out at me and I'll know I have to have it for the shop, but my number one rule is that just because something is vintage doesn't make it pretty, and the ultimate decider is fit.
I want women to really love the pieces they buy from me and really love how they look in them, and cut is what really makes or breaks a garment.
5.What is your own personal style like?
My own personal style is probably best described as eclectic and relaxed. I try to mix vintage pieces from the shop with newer garments so that nothing looks dated, and love that I have a never-ending cyclical wardrobe.
There are only about five or six pieces I own that I refuse to give up to the shop.
6.Besides running an online store, what else takes up your time?
Running the shop takes up much of my day, and for me there's nothing better than owning and running my own business. I can take a day off whenever I feel like it, and I truly love running the store.
7.Where do you gather your inspiration?
I gather my inspiration from all around. Lately I've been watching Mad Men, and so have been adding tons of early 60's wiggle dresses to the shop and continually reassuring myself that no, I would not look good with bright red hair.
8.Any style advice that you would like to share?
My best style advice is to not get stuck in a fashion rut or allow any scene to dictate how you dress. And absolutely have fun with what you wear!
