The Wide Leg Pant

2.4.2017 Red Green 4

These 1970's wide leg pants belonged to my mum, and now they are mine! I paired this with a 1950's cropped zip-up knit cardigan, a modern basic tank and platform leather shoes.

 I've been doing some additional blogging on the Heirloomen Vintage shop site. Unfortunately, the Google search-ability for Shopify blogs is pretty poor compared to Blogger. I will have to double up and post some articles here, so vintage enthusiasts and readers can find them.

Heirloomen Boutique - Authentic Vintage Clothing

We're so excited to introduce Heirloomen, a vintage boutique featuring authentic antique and vintage clothing, carefully curated and sourced for quality and wearbility.

Authentic true vintage dresses and clothing
A re-brand was in order. Sticky Lipgloss Vintage was started when I was in college, as I sourced through thrift stores and family members and focused on what I would call more contemporary vintage. Heirloomen focuses on the romantic and feminine aesthetic of periods from 1900's through the early 1960's with special pieces from later eras, as well. We gather our collections from sources all over the U.S, looking for rare and beautiful finds for you.

True vintage is a special niche. I wanted to create a stand-alone website that captured to mode of shop. I am still selling some pieces on Etsy, but Heirloomen.com will feature free shipping and better images, as well as blog content and styling inspiration

Customers can shop by category or by size, and the in-site serach function is full functional if you are looking for something specific. We offer a variety of sizes from XS-XXL and are proud to carry rare sizing in various categories. Take some time to browse though the Heirloomen Vintage shop, you will probably find something you just have to have. Oh, and shipping is free!

Vintage Styling: Goth Girl Vibes

Channeling my 90's goth girl look here. Ironically - no pieces are from the 90's. All black, dark lips, strappy shoes, a few textures, and great angles. This 1950's peplum top is available in the Etsy shop. It is so versatile, can be dressed up or down and a great neckline for jewelry (I chose some big earrings).

Vintage Styling: The Timeless Edwardian Blouse

5FebLook2 5FebLook4 5FebLook3 5FebLook5

There are many ways to wear antique pieces with more modern pairings, especially cotton and crochet Edwardian camisoles and blouses. The detail on this blouse is eye catching, due to the craftsmanship of the texture unseen in most garments today, yet it is a class and simple wardrobe staple. Certainly beautiful!
