Up cycled FASHION

February 22, 2013

 Sometimes we here at Shabbybabe come upon dresses that have been really loved...and loved... and they are no longer wearable... 

We are introducing a new section to our store sometime in March... Upcycled Playground! which showcases our upcycled line of dresses.... all completely vintage, and all completely unique.  No two are alike...  Here is a sneak peak! 



Please do sign our mailing list... and we will let you know when the Upcycled Playground is officially OPEN!!!! And we will give you a special discount coupon too! 


 On some level... I'm not a New Years Eve girl....    Many times, there is a pretentiousness that so many parties wreak of... .... and OH MY... WHAT TO WEAR!!! 

Best choice... just be yourself... and if it is a theme party... be yourself in theme.  

The Happening New Years Eve wear....


LADY IN BLACK


ARRIVE IN FAUX STYLE


ISLAND RESORT NEW YEARS


MAD MEN THEME PARTY



A SIMPLY COOL DRESS FOR ANY PARTY


FOR THE BOARDWALK EMPIRE PARTY


My advice?  Just love how you look!  And you will radiate with a great energy.  

There is nothing and we mean nothing like heirloom leather from a master leather maker like Loewe!   You can have newer, you can have different, but not one can compare to the rich vintage past of fine clothing.  

As Glamour magazine has pointed out, Victoria Beckham loves her Heirloom Loewe Leather coat! 


We do happen to have one, and so totally vintage 70s... It is quality from tip to toe..... Just pure luxury not to be missed! 

 Oh, just back with great memories from one of the beautiful places on my list!  Mount Desert Island in Maine, home to Acadia National Park.  Just the best place to try on my latest collection of vintage 60s dresses by the sea... so wispy, so romantic... some light wind, the smell of the salt air and the sound of the ocean.... and then there are the mountains... Check out this cool vintage collection, most of it is for sale on Shabbybabe;

 

I felt like a princess near a castle here!  Where IS my KNIGHT!


I still feel so beautiful and free in this 70s vintage dress....

 I assure you, there is nothing that can compare to this that is made today.  

Just check out the lace at the sleeve tops, which connects to a back yoke.  

Such imaginative and creative design going on then...


And a wispy wind by the shore just takes this great geometric pattern 60s hostess gown...

such a great piece to just feel great about yourself in... More tomorrow..... its a great place! 

Denim on the trail

vintage denim in Acadia National park

Great vacation in Acadia National Park; so beautiful where the mountains meet the sea.  Great trails along the shoreline... and up the mountains... where I hiked in denim...
