When life gets in the way of your tumblarity… aka why Happy Hill Vintage has been on hiatus!

After a month of not blogging, I guess it’s only fair to be greated with a big fat “0” courtesy of tumblr. The “0” of course referring to my tumblarity as of late. Whoops. I’m not hatin’… I’m just sayin’

In truth, I’ve been up a lot more than the current state of this blog can attest to. A few personal highlights:

1.) I took a fall roadtrip to Lancaster, PA with my right hand vintagista Sammy D of SammyDVintage. Video and photos to come

2.) I made a DIY Halloween Costume and added a bit of chic to the character Max from Where the Wild Things Are. Photos to come (hah!)

3.) I recieved the strangest delivery in the post. A mannequin. Etsy to come! Perhaps before the holidays ; )

4.) I started selling Happy Hill Vintage goods at Artists and Fleas, an indoor flea market in Brooklyn.

5.) … oh yeah… I’ve been planning a HUGE vintage-inspired bazaar here in New York City featuring my vintage designs along with Sammy’s, hand-made stationary from my college buddy Laura Trimble (LATinStudio) and hand-crafted jewelry from Kim Last Designs. New York Magazine’s The Cut, the ultimate guide on what’s haute in fashion in NYC, just picked up the event as a ‘must attend’ this weekend. More on that tomorrow…

All that to say…

31 days hiatus, 5 big developments for Happy Hill Vintage, 2 ladies still running the show, and a 0 tumblarity… time to dust of the dashboard.

WE’RE BACK!

xoxo

permalink Note to self: Vintage leather gloves + water= lethal combination
Remember how we were bemoaning the effects of weather on our experience at the Flea last week? Well, this morning, I decided to face the music and assess how much damage was actually done. The damage: a few of vintage leather gloves did not make it (pours one out to Mary). Note the shriveled up guy on the right. Not a haute look, at all. So. very. sad.
My mom was totally devastated when I sent her these pics, “This doesn’t make me happy. Poor gloves!” So it goes in the game of vintage. At least our sanity wasn’t the first official casualty.
File under: lessons learned.

permalink This lovely pumpkin costume was laying around the office today and I couldn’t help, but "inspect" it. Ok so I got in it and may or may not have worked for the rest of the day in said costume.
With Halloween right around the corner, I’m starting to float around some ideas with friends. One things for certain, the costume WILL be vintage-inspired, but with a modern twist.
Current thoughts: Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Flapper (always a classic), Roller Derby chic (yeah, Whip It) or a Real Housewife of Atlanta… the theme? haute mess!
