DIY Industrial-Style Fan

I’ve been trying really hard lately to not bring new and unnecessary things into our home. I’m extremely sentimental (read: pack rat), and even though I’ve made a good effort to get rid of a lot, my best bet to a clean home is to limit what I add to it.

That said, I like shiny new things! What’s a girl to do? Especially when she’s been lusting over pretty new fans.

Incorporating Vintage // At Work

My love for vintage is only topped by my love for comfort. While I would love to live in huge, cupcake vintage dresses, that wouldn’t be suitable or comfortable for work.

I can sometimes find the perfect vintage piece for work, but more often than not I find myself choosing vintage-inspired pieces that I can wear all day — and that includes 2 miles of walking for my commute!

On this particular day, I went for a 60s mod vibe:

The Vintage Community >> Galerie F

When I met Billy Craven, co-owner of Galerie F, at Market Daze over the weekend, I was blown away at all he and his wife have accomplished. In addition to being a talented artist, Billy and his wife also spend free time amassing unique and beautiful vintage items that they showcase at sales.

But back to the real matter at hand.

Galerie F is an open-door gallery space in Logan Square that focuses on community artists, print making and street art. Are you as interested as I was? Good news — there’s a show opening this Friday!

Shake, Rattle and Roll – Source

Shake, Rattle, and Roll: Artworks by Nice One and LUCX” opens at Galerie F this Friday, June 13 from 6 – 10 pm. This fully free event will showcase talented Chicago-based street artists. I love admiring all different kinds of art, especially the kinds that just feel “found.” I’m excited to see this unique display in great neighborhood (not that I have a bias or anything…).

I know this isn’t as vintage-themed as my community posts usually are, but rest assured there are many vintage-inspired prints to be found at Galerie F (many of which Billy has created himself). Hope to see you there!

Prepping for Heaven

My friends can always tell when I have a vintage sale coming up because it is all. I. talk about. Just the other day I got sidetracked on the way to friend’s because of a little shop jammed full of vintage. She, of course, understood. What a trooper.
Combined with a few other stores that I popped into over the weekend, I came out alright. Here’s a little peek of what I’ll have at the Vintage Heaven sale this weekend:
Cute 1960s LBD, sans belt 🙁

Weird late 1960s cream dress that I can’t decide if I love.

Perfect 1950s patterned dress. 

Oooh, aahhh!

With original tags! The zipper is so new and shiny.

Embellished 1950s cardigan.

Patterned 1940s dress. 

Over the weekend a friend mentioned that I’m always keeping the dresses I post, so (deep breath) I’m letting all my weekend finds go! Stop by Vintage Heaven this weekend to see me, these clothes and so much more!
