It’s Hip to be Hipster

I got the greatest email from Stacey at Hipsterville, an extension of FashionFollower.com. Love their site and you will too! Here’s Stacey’s note verbatim, below:

OMG, loving Vinty! Just wanted to let you know about our little online shop.

Hipsterville is the one-stop destination for smashing vintage gear with a rock-n-pop edge.  Inspired by the musical icons of the past, we only stock our shop with pieces that are colorful & quirky and always with a nod to current fashion trends.

I know what you’re thinking.  ANOTHER eBay vintage shop?  Everyone and their brother’s-girlfriend’s-sister’s-best friend has an eBay vintage shop these days.  But face it, you just can’t get enough and we think that you’ll dig our point-of-view, which is all about dancing to the beat of a different drummer.   

Hipsterville is an extension of the FashionFollower.com web magazine where music & fashion were always our passion and our vintage selection reflects this.  Every piece in the shop is named after a song and many of them have been modified to fit the shape of modern girlie style so you never look like you’re wearing a costume, just a fab little frock that will totally turn heads. 

We also craft customized pieces with darling little embroidery & appliqués using recycled fabrics under our label 28 Crash! (loads of owls, and birds, and horses…OH MY!)   Stop by your local Urban Outfitters and you may find our stuff on their Urban Renewal rack.  Or you can just go to our online shop! 

So make sure to check us out, be prepared to SMILE!  And if you want to swap plugs and links, make sure to contact us so we can spread the word about YOU as well.

Rock on with your bad self!

Super Mod Chick Garnish

Everything mod is fun again and Canadian artist Colleen Baran has designed some of the most fascinating  mod jewelry around. I’m a recent proud owner of the ring below–and while it took a while to finally arrive– it was well worth the wait. Colleen is attracting all types of attention–being featured in jewelry books and magazine articles, but she is modest about these achievements.

My super cool ring from the Bubble Lace Series ($129)  is below:

Check out some of her many different jewelry designs at her etsy shop. She works with multiple materials like silver and she recently unveiled a line of felted jewelry.

Bubble Lace Hoop Earrings $169

Floating Saucer Ring $54

Framework Series Ring $64
