BAD NEWS: The holidays are definitely over. It’s no longer okay to have your decorations up. There’s snow and ice everywhere. Spring is far, far away. Pretty much the only thing we have to look forward to is Valentine’s Day / Galentine’s Day (whichever you prefer). I guess some people look forward to the Super Bowl, but I think it’s pretty gross overall.
GOOD NEWS: I have a ton of vintage fur newly listed in the shop. It all came from one incredible collection, and I really, really want to keep each and every piece, but I’m the sharing type, so here they are!

The same fabulous lady who had all those furs had this stunning dress as well:

She must’ve been so glamorous and super fun!
Well, hello everybody! In my head I’m saying that like Aunt Bethany from Christmas Vacation. Don’t throw me down, Clark! Actually, now that I think about it, Aunt Bethany is my style icon for this holiday season. Witness:
ANYWAY! I said I would take a little break for the summer, and accidentally took a big break for like six months. But it’s not like I was just lounging around sipping mai tais (I mean… I did do that a little bit). New Old Fashion was still in full swing (more on that later), and I partnered with my sister and my dad to create a line of children’s shoes.
Yes, that’s right. CHILDREN’S SHOES. More specifically, VINTAGE INSPIRED children’s shoes. And they’re so stinking cute. We use vintage patterns from our family’s long-standing manufacturing business and modern leathers in awesome colors. I wrote about our family’s business a little bit here. Here are a few of my favorites and their links.
Each pair is custom made in our small historic factory in Central Pennsylvania. You can check out our full collection at Zimmerman Shoes.
Now that Zimmerman Shoes has been launched into the big wide open internet, I’ll be bouncing around between here and there. Check back for more on New Old Fashion, and maybe (MAYBE!) an Aunt Bethany-inspired holiday outfit post. I kind of can’t stop thinking about it now.
Oh, hey guys! I currently have the blog on a “summer schedule” which means I post something once every three months. Which means once a summer. Which is about what I did last year. SORRY.
I’m still updating the shop, though. Here are a few of my favorite recent listings:
Right now I could write something like “I’m going to get back into regular blogging for the rest of the summer!” But let’s be real… I won’t be back for at least six weeks.
Yes yes, y’all. It’s here. The whole shop is marked down through the long weekend. Thank your service men and women, put out your American flags, grill up some hot dogs, and buy yourself some nice vintage. It’s going to be a glorious weekend.
GIVE ME ALL THE VINTAGE DOONEYS! Seriously, though. I’m obsessed. Every vintage Dooney and Bourke bag that I’ve used has worn like iron and always looked great. There’s just something about old Dooney leather… it’s completely indestructible.
If you want a precious bag that costs tons of money, can’t touch the floor, or even almost get scraped, I don’t know how to help you (and, shoot, maybe we shouldn’t be friends… that doesn’t sound very fun). BUT! If you want a take-everywhere-swing-around-toss-in-the-car-last-forever-hold-everything kind of bag, I’ve got six (SIX!!) for you:
1. Navy Equestrian Bag, coming soon
All priced between 58 and 63 bucks… you should probably head to the shop to get first pick!
I sold my 1000th garment last week, and that means it’s time for a celebratory sale.
Two days left to get the goods, friends! With the sale, the average price of a genuine vintage dress in my shop is somewhere around 35 bucks, so it’s a great time to stock up. Check out everything in the shop, or go straight to the dresses!
And a very special thank you to Amanda Jean of MaeJean Vintage for being lucky number 1000. I’m so very glad that sale when to a personal friend and a kickass fellow Etsian. Plus, I’m selfishly happy that, from time to time, I’ll get to see the incredible 50s circle skirt that she purchased!
