fash•ion (fash-uh n) | archives vintage

I love how blogging has introduced me to the most inspiring people.  I met Lisa a few years ago at a blogger brunch and after spotting her in a wickedly fierce vintage outfit, I knew I had to be friends with her.  Over a year ago she left her full-time gig and opened an extension to her blog, Archives Vintage, that sells one of a kind vintage goods.  It's been so fun watching her grow this business, that was a huge risk at the time, and is so inspiring to see her follow a career path that she is truly passionate about.

Lisa's shop has tons of amazing vintage finds from unique clutch purses to one of a kind coats, but what she's got a keen eye for are dresses. Her shop is always stocked with a great selection, so when she decided to host a yard sale to sell some of her inventory, there's no way I was going to pass it up.  Shopping, catching up with a buddy and brownie bites.  Need I say more?

Lisa had so many great things and definitely didn't disappoint.  I could have walked away with TONS more than I did, but my ever growing bump refrained me from doing so.  She had so many fun dresses, but where I scored was the $1 bin filled with shoes. Since she is phasing shoes out of her shop, there were tons of pairs to get rid of.  I nabbed a bunch of great stuff, but my favorite?  2 pairs of super cute flat suede sandals that I can't wait to sport.

Even though you missed Lisa's fantastic yard sale the good news is, Lisa's online shop is always accessible no matter where you live.  Definitely check out her goods - there's plenty of great treasures to choose from.
