Vintage Goodies

My grandparents surprised me with the most gorgeous vintage antiques. I can't wait to wear them. I will be posting pictures soon too. They got me the most beautiful pair of handmade vintage gloves with so much embroidered detail. Also, there's a beautiful hat pin, a 1920s cloche hat (that I've been craving) and another 1920s hat that is black and sequin covered! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!
Also, the poll shows that "How to make a tank dress" won for my first video tutorial! I will be buying a camera soon. I already have the supplies. I will post a link as soon as I've finished it.

I will be posting pictures this weekend of my Christmas dress pattern and the fabric I'm using. I'm so excited to start making it. Maybe I will be even able to finish it this weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by! Pictures to come this weekend!

Vintage Comic Book Shoes

So I now have a favorite pair of shoes.
I bought vintage comics from eBay for CHEAP. Then, I just cut out my favorite pics and words and mod podged it onto the shoes. These aren't great pictures but I took them as soon as I was done last night. I wore them to my friend's Broadway choir concert and got a few compliments! Who's on my shoes? Superman, Batman, CAPTAIN AMERICA, Aquaman, Spiderman, Wonderwoman, The Green Lantern, and Thor.
What to do with the extra comics? I'm going to make bangles, headbands, and maybe even some high heels!!
