last call…

 this is it, vintage loving vixens…until midnight tonight…

ALL ITEMS IN THE SHOP ARE ONLY $5!!

yes, you heard right…$5!!

so head on over to barefoot & vintage [on etsy] and take advantage of these ridiculous prices!

i’m serious.  it’s bananas.

many thanks, paige 

how they wore it: a recap

over the last year, several bloggers and readers have purchased items from my shop, but a few of them kindly sent photos, so that i could share their styling magic with everyone!  in honor of closing the shop, i thought i’d re-share the photos and say THANK YOU to those lovely ladies.

this is my friend ashley.  she doesn’t have a blog, but she’s so stylish it makes my eyelashes hurt.  if she did join the fashion/style blog world, we’d all be in big trouble.  meaning, she’d take it by the balls and win.  (not that we’re in competition, i’m just saying…she’s good.)  when i first opened my shop, she was my biggest fan…she bought two belts from me immediately.  ash, thank you.  good supporting.  (wink wink)

i’m pretty sure most of you know this gorgeous betch.  if not, say hello to shannon of dirty hair halo.  she purchased the pink blazer and the vintage 70′s lace blouse.   shannon also supported my shop by posting a barefoot & vintage “button” on her blog.  thank you shannon!  i dig you.  you inspire me every damn day.

 meet anne of gathering color!  she made this simple cotton tank dress look amazing, don’t you think?  the perfect palette of colors and accessories.  well done, anne!  for inspiration through fashion and photos, visit her blog!

 you probably don’t know this girl…christina of second skin…not ringing a bell?  yeah, i didn’t think so.  she’s only been blogging for a year and she’s really struggling to get readers, so…maybe stop by her blog and show her some love.  ha!  but seriously…christina has been a great friend and an avid supporter of barefoot & vintage since the day i started!  c, thank you!!  for buying my stuff and answering vintage/etsy related questions.  you’re a constant inspiration to me, lady.
ps.  visit christina’s shop on etsy!

the lovely kate of twinkle toes and gold dangles purchased the dress you see in these photos.  (it’s actually a skirt.)  and more recently, she bought a vintage blouse.  thank you, kate!!  she has a handmade jewelry shop on etsy, as well…check it out! 
ps…kate just got married!! 
 

jaimee, from crabtastic, is one of my fave ladies…EVAR.  she’s my age, but i feel like she’s my older, wiser, more stylish, and crazy fun older sister.  (don’t take that as she looks old, because she doesn’t…she’s gorgeous!)  anywho, jaimee bought the moth-eaten, wooly mammoth egon von furstenberg sweater [above] for her clothing line…split.  she used the sweater in their fall 2011 lookbook AND as inspiration to mass produce a similar sweater!!  [please click on the link to the right to peruse the split lookbook.]  the line includes swimwear and vintage inspired clothing.  stay tuned!  i had the pleasure of meeting jaimee and her family this past summer.  they’re all very delightful…just like jaimee!  visit her blog for inspiration through photos, vintage, her family, and crafts…all delivered with never-ending wit and sass. 

meet the adorable cayce, of madame joy.  she’s bought a few dresses from me…thank you, chica!  i loved this dress when i found it and considered not selling it at all.  but i love how she styled this little number with taupe booties and a vibrant red belt.  bravo, cayce…bravo!

i freaking love courtnee of moments of whimsy.  not just because she’s bought several dresses from me, but because she has incredible style and a ridiculous penchant for mixing and matching colors, patterns, and fabrics…and i admire that, as it’s not something that comes easily to me.  thanks courtnee…for buying and inspiring!

last, but certainly not least, amanda from off of broadway!  if you read her blog, i don’t have to tell you how ridiculously awesome her style is…am i right?!  i love this girl…her stories, her style, her vibe…she’s gravy.  i was absolutely flattered when she purchased something from my shop…thanks mama!  oh and please visit her shop on etsy.  she’s selling some real vintage gems. 

******************************************

i think i mentioned everyone who sent photos…if i missed you, i’m sorry!

you can still win a $50 credit to the shop!  visit yesterday’s post for deets on how to enter. 
and i know what you’re thinking…”paige, why would i enter a contest to win $50 towards a shop that’s closing?” 

good question.  i have an answer…

people, i’m not out of vintage.  i have a guest bedroom full of it…coats, boots, bolos, dresses, pants, etc…it will be sold…either on consignment through another etsy shop or maybe even via my blog…so…i will not disappoint you.  i promise.  if you enter and win, you’ll be able to put $50 to good use!

oh…and if you’re on a budget, but really like an item…make an offer!

now go shopping!  ;)

xo, paige

announcement.

i’ve decided to close up shop.

yes, you heard right…barefoot & vintage [on etsy] is going “on vacation”.

for how long, i am not sure, but something has to give.
i have too much on my plate at this point in my life and the shop is starting to feel more like a second job, as opposed to a hobby.  i end up spending my evenings and weekends listing, blogging about new items, taking photos, shopping, wrapping, etc…it’s too much. 

as some of you may already know, i’m having a huge sale in the shop this week!

but it will only last until friday, november 5th until midnight.
  at that time, i will officially go…dark.

here’s where i need your help…

i’m trying to get the word out about my sale, so i’m asking that my lovely readers/fellow bloggers do one of two things…

*retweet this post on twitter
or
*post this banner on your blog, to let your readers know!  

use code:  [ad in the "<" in the beginning "/>" at the end] img src=”http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1089/5132278034_26859e7dd5_o.jpg” width=”490″ height=”705″

whether you do one or both of those things, please let me know by leaving a comment on this post.
(obviously if you post it on your blog, i’d like to see the link.)

and for helping me out…

one of you will win a
$50 credit to barefoot & vintage!
(on saturday, november 6th i will randomly draw a name.  winner will be notified via email.  and even though the shop will be “closed”, i’ll open it to the winner!)

if you’re a vintage seller and are interested in buying items in bulk [to sell in your own shop], please email me at barefootandvintage@gmail.com.  i’d be more than happy to make a deal.  

you know, i seriously contemplated giving up the barefoot & vintage blog, as well…but i’m not ready yet.  i may not post as often and the content may vary [from fashion to vintage finds to family to MP], but i like my blog.  i enjoy writing.  and some of you like and look forward to what i have to say!  i just can’t justify giving that up.

to those who have purchased from my shop…thank you!  thank you for supporting my little endeavor.  it was a good run!

(ps.  i know a couple of you already tweeted/reposted on my other post…don’t worry, you’ll be included in this drawing.)

now come on over and take advantage of these ridiculous deals!
$5 sale bin
$20 or less!

i hope you find something you like!

xo, paige
