Happy Halloween!

So as a vintage clothing seller, Halloween is one of my all time favorite holidays.

My daughter came to me last week and wanted to be an 80's person...kind like we used to want o go as 50's people....too funny!

Then she started talking about tie dye....then came a long pictorial discussion about the different styles of the different years.

Now her and her friends are going as 80's prom queens! It was SO much fun to put the costumes together...I can't wait to do the hair and makeup.............Wait....who's holiday is this?

this ZumZum is from flashbackRetro.etsy.com

and this black and blue number is from retrorenegadevintage.etsy.com

and wait is 80's style without a pop of color? check out the blue beauty up top from

Vintage Jewelry

One of the easiest ways to start your love for wearing vintage is through jewelry. Styles always cycle around. This season some of the most popular jewelry styles are large chunky, striking bracelets..Lucite, enamel, colorful and printed.

VintageFabulous on Etsy has an awesome selection of colorful bracelets!
This lemon yellow lucite set will brighten up any dreary fall day.

PattycakesPlunder on Etsy
also has some amazing pieces...
one of my favorites is this large link bracelet. It is the same style as the bracelet featured a few days ago in my post about the favorites in my own shop!

Enjoy shopping for your own fall jewelry wardrobe and don't forget vintage!

Etsy has Supply!

As promised, today I will highlight a few of my favorites from my own shop NoOrdinaryO, my brand new supply shop!

With Halloween coming up I have to note this adorable costume pattern. Not only is the pattern still usable, but the graphics on the front are great for paper ephemera use! One of the many reasons I love vintage patterns is because of their pictures on the front!

Another of my favorites is this Bingo Game! I have seen amazing things done with Bingo pieces like this pendant by LibertyAspen on Etsy.
