Pop-Up Shop Alert

There are some pretty cool things happening in Oshawa this week.  Space Invaders  has taken over and brought life to our city's downtown and to celebrate this, Isabella's CafĂ© will be hosting yours truly for a Pop up shop.  Fall is in the air, so come in for a warm bevvy and a look around the shop. There are many great pieces waiting to be worn!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to set up shop at local event here in Oshawa. I love to go out with my suitcases in toe and meet new people, and lately there have been a lot of new exciting things happening in town that I've been able to do just that! 

I live in a town that struggles to embrace art and culture... I don't like to get too political over here, but sometimes it can be a drag.  However there are a solid group of artists and people who valiantly support the arts and who really work hard  when it comes to making art, music, and an alternative culture possible. 

Fallen Love Records is an emerging record label in town who put on a great show in a great new space here in Oshawa.  It's been a while since I've actually posted on the blog so I thought I'd share some pictures from the evening which included local music, art, zines, and of course vintage clothing!

Thrifted Lately

My mom told me a funny story recently... She said that one of my favoutie activities to do when I was about three was to "carry purses".  I couldn't help but laugh when I heard this because really not much has changed.  There is something about bags that gets me EVERY. TIME. And don't get me started on how much I love leather...  I think it's in my Italian DNA.

So despite having downsized my collection of bags recently, I just couldn't resist a good find on my last visit to the thrift shop.  I picked up two very fun and very soft leather purses and I'm super stoked to wear both.  So let the outfit planning begin!

Not only did I find these great bags, but I picked up a few other things that, let's face it, I don't need but couldn't help but imagining a great outfit I could use these pieces with.  Hope these finds excite you as much as they did me!

p.s. I'm on vine.  Check me out @thevintageramble

Thrifty Decorating

You may know by now that I periodically write for a local magazine called Oshawhat, where I've been sharing my thrifty tips and my favourite thrift joints in and around where I live.  I recently wrote about a decorating project I completed packed with DIY's and thrift store finds.  See more pictures and read all about the process here.
