Well, hello there 2015! You sure came up fast!

To all my Thrifty Vintage Kittens out there…this year is going to be a great one for the business. Lots of fun ahead, so stay tuned. If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve included a sign up box for a newsletter (I’m starting a newsletter!). You’ll want to sign up for that because there is where you’ll be the first to hear about sales (special, readers-only sales!), shop announcements, and lots fun vintage eye candy always!

2014 was great for Thrifty Vintage Kitten and 2015 is going to be even better. My shop is not here to be average. It’s here to be awesome. I want to bring you all the very best, the very coolest, the very most wearable vintage out there. Thrifty Vintage Kitten is vintage fashion for the modern girl and I’ll show you how to incorporate stellar vintage pieces into your wardrobe so you don’t look like a cartoon character. :)

To get things started, here’s a few of the shop’s latest offerings. Grab them before they’re gone!

Ann B. Davis, known more affectionately as “Alice” from The Brady Bunch

On Sunday, actress Ann B. Davis, who we all knew as “Alice,” the wise-cracking housekeeper on The Brady Bunch, died. She was 88. The Brady Bunch has become one of the most iconic shows on television. The fashion alone is something to behold. I thought in honor of Alice I would put together a Brady Bunch themed post today. Thrifty Vintage Kitten has lots of vintage dresses for women and kids that the cast of The Brady Bunch would easily have worn on the show! I’m sure they would all be Alice approved!

Rompers are HUGE this summer. They are easy to wear (hello not having to pick out matching separates!) and super cute. Just slip them on, grab a pair of flip flops, and you’re set. I love summer clothes. They are so simple! If you’re into the romper trend, but enjoy vintage clothing more than modern clothing, I have the hookup for you. I have a slew of vintage rompers in my inventory!

Today I was photographing my summer stash of rompers and I discovered I had triplets! These 3 sisters (AND MANY MORE) will be coming to the shop soon. I promise you…if you need a vintage romper, I’m your girl. Now go grab your flip flops, a cold drink, and meet me outside. Summer has arrived!

Memorial Day is this weekend which means the unofficial kick off to summer is here! Where I’m from, the weekend is filled with backyard BBQs, a parade, and the first day at the pool! It’s been a LOOOOONG winter in Chicago. We had record lows and record snowfall. (And it just snowed on Friday. In May. MAY!) But I’m ready to put that all past me and jump head first into summer. On Memorial Day wearing red, white, and blue is practically a requirement, so here are a few outfit ideas from Thrifty Vintage Kitten to get you properly patriotic.
