December Re-cap

December has been a crazy month for me! I did a show on First Saturday at Venus on the Half Shell, Jen and I hosted another Village Bazaar at Cafe Nola, and I had numerous christmas jobs for friends and family!!!! Here are some photos to re-cap the month! Enjoy!
This is a kids dress I made from a vintage pattern using vintage fabric

Here I am setting up my pop-up shop the night before the show! It took me hours!!

Island of the mis-fit toys! Notice my teddy bear is missing a leg! I left it in my studio haha

Anika modeled several of my dresses at the show! She is such a cutie and wears my dresses so well! Notice in the bottom right photo the hanging lace hoops, I hand made those all with left over lace from studio :)

This is what my pop-up shop looked like!

I had just gotten back from my beach trip with my sister Liz and I was wearing a vintage ethnic wrap skirt that I got from Venus, when I walked in to my house my mom said "I had the same skirt when I was your age!" Check out how similar her skirt is to mine on my Sister getaway post!

Great minds think alike!!!!

Sister Getaway- Rehoboth Beach

My sister Liz and I took a short weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach. We did an early morning photo shoot on our last day there. Below are some photos of fashionable beach wear. 
Free People bandeau top (velvet lounge- frederick md), 70's vintage ethnic wrap skirt(venus on the half shell- frederick md), Vintage sunglasses (venus on the half shell), Straw floppy hat (skys the limit- frederick md), Vintage patchwork quilt (old glory- frederick md)

Vintage 60's dress (venus on the half shell- frederick md), Vintage sunglasses (Venus on the half shell- frederick, md)

I made this out fit! The zipper front bandeau is favorite pattern of mine. It works well as swimsuit top or paired with high waisted bottoms. The shorts I used a vintage pattern and sewed with vintage fabric and buttons. (I actually got the fabric at Old Glory Antique Mall)

Vintage robe (venus on the half shell- frederick md)

I got this vintage swimsuit at Hunting Ground in Baltimore. It is my absolute favorite!

Free People top (velvet lounge- frederick md), High waisted vintage pants (venus on the half shell- frederick md)

Crocheted pants (venus on the half shell- frederick md)

Most of our beach trip consisted of getting sun burnt and eating Grottos pizza and cheese burgers, But I thought I would throw in a fashion photo shoot to make me feel a little productive. Hope you enjoyed looking at these pics!!!
