GMT <3'S SOTBM

 Hey y’all! Remember that big announcement I said was on the way? Well… here it is: I’ve teamed up with Sisters of the Black Moon – from now on my best vintage finds will be sold through their EBay shop + I’ll be doing some ‘behind the scenes’ web related stuff for them. This opens a whole new chapter for them as well as I; one we’re all pretty psyched about : ).

 Seeing my finds brought to life by them is a dream come true. I just love how the products are statement worthy, yet styled in a way that never looks ‘costume-y’ or ‘dated’. Instead, their presentation is a perfect hybrid of vintage, street, and high fashion – resulting in looks that are do-able and appropriate for every day. You can’t help but get inspired!

 On top of that, these ladies are the real deal. Such genuinely cool, kind, and creative people. They’re every bit as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, so I feel very blessed to be working with them. It’s been a lot of fun so far, and I’m very excited for what the future holds.

 Without further adieu, lets get to the good stuff, shall we? Here are some treasures currently up for grabs:

 

 Dark green 70s jumpsuit with bell bottoms, cut outs, and studs, oh my! Very Foxy Brown and perfect in every way. here

The perfect fall dress! Authentic Indian silk from the 1970s. I just love the paisley/ethnic print + vibrant colors. here

Holy moly! 70s fringed bell bottoms in brown suede + cream cotton.  here

Deadstock (never worn) 70s gogo boots with cut outs. If you’re a size 5 1/2 to 6, don’t miss these. Such rare showstoppers! here

Kimono inspired 70s maxi with an obre like scheme. I love the wide sleeves and moon + bamboo/fern leaf print. here

This reminds me of my favorite fictional charactor, Wednesday Addams! Super cute 80s mini in black stretch velvet, with with satin contrast. The best. here

Grunge meets goth meets glam. Cutie pie 90s black cotton crochet halter dress. here

Glitz & glam! 70s high waist palazzo pants in a metallic gold brocade. Pristine condition as if never worn. here

Disco dolly. 70s poly chiffon triple tiered ruffle dress. Hot stuff! here

Mod-nifique! 60s mustard/red/black tartan plaid mini jumper dress w/ buckles on the straps. Perfect for layering in colder months. here

Zodiac print 60s/70s mini dress. I repeat,  ZODIAC PRINT 60s/70s MINI DRESS.  Such a thing exists, and the proof is here

I love Victorian revival stuff! Cream colored 70s mini w/ lace, ruffles, and self belting. here

Ooooh, girl! 70s/80s washed silk halter mini in a 30s inspired style. I love the deep v neck + open back. Every gal needs a sexy lil’ thing like this hanging in her closet. here

This 40s rayon Hawaiian stunner sold last week. Such gorgeous colors and print!

There’s PLENTY more where this came from, trust me. What you see here is a fraction of what I brought the sisters + they do plenty of treasure hunting on their own too. Please visit their shop for many more incredible items. Thanks for checking it out!

50s, 60s, and 80s

Another overload of cuteness in the Goldmine Trash Etsy shop this week!

Mid century mademoiselle! Late 50s-early 60s cotton day dress in a jewel toned atomic print. Love.

Just like honey. I love the fullness of the bust gathering and skirting. 50s perfection in a beige, tan, and amber checkered plaid.

Surprise! Another one of a kind House of Trash original. The fabric was vintage deadstock and is in the most PRISTINE MINT CONDITION! You’d think it was made yesterday with how crisp and vibrant it is. Gorgeous plum/raisin color with an Indian style floral print… stamped with metallic gold throughout.

The skirt is a full circle, so you’ll all eyes will be on you as your twirl about the dance floor. So fun.

Classy as can be cocktail dress in a metallic silver and white damask floral brocade. Very Blair Waldorf.

Fun fact: there was no such as person as Suzy Perette. Suzy Perette was simply a brand name for a New York design house which specialized in providing adaptations of Parisian haute couture designs, particularly ones by Balmain and Dior.

While Suzy Perette dresses were a more affordable alternative to couture, they were still out of reach for most buyers, with prices averaging around $70.00 – a small fortune back then. Consequently, this label is pretty collectible today.

Like all Suzy Perette dresses, this silver stunner has a somewhat sculptural look, a nipped in waist, and is made of premium fabric. The photos don’t begin to do it justice! It’s very flattering on, and is in dire need of new adventures.

Just in time for St. Patty’s! These two 80s prom dresses are a guaranteed way to get noticed. I love 80s metallics, and if there’s a big bow, even better. They’re both under $50 too. Before the discount even.

Diner uniform chic, 60s style. Another dress that pics aren’t doing justice for. Carnation pink and white checkered print, with white color block contrast. Cutie pie peter pan collar + decorative pockets with ‘gum drop’ buttons! A perfect mod Easter dress.

SOLD. But worth showing for fun. 10+ years  ago I sold a 60s mini with a mod/London Underground target print to another vintage store. And 10+ years later I still kicking myself for letting it go; it was easily one of the coolest vintage prints I’ve seen!

I’ll probably kick myself for selling this one too, but oh well. At least it’s going to a good home. Godspeed, 60s micro mini.

ALSO SOLD. To the same gal. I’ve had a ‘thing’ for color blocked 60s dresses ever since the PSA uniform Zooey Deschanel wore in Almost Famous. I especially love when they’re black and white, or red, white, and navy blue. Like this one.

Mosey on over if you see anything to your liking. And don’t forget – entering discount code ‘vlv14’ during checkout takes 25% off your entire purchase!
