CHA-CHA-CHANGES

Did you miss me? Sorry for the constant disappearing acts as of late. Things have been a bit hectic in my personal life so I’ve been coping with that the best that I can. I’ve been sick off and on + my old car pretty much died on me earlier this month. So most of May has been spent cooped up at home, resting, watching movies, and spending way too much time on Facebook.

 The good news is, new stuff is finally up on Goldmine Trash!

This Bardot-esque bombshell was designed by Sydney North, and was born for breaking hearts in. It was originally a frumpy middy length, but now it’s ready to rock & roll. Dig the pleated ‘origami’ like silk ruffles w/ picot trim!

I love the flattering cut on this dress! A psychedelic stunner from the late 60s – early 70s.

Op art at it’s absolute best. Gotta love the color block contrast too.

I photographed a ton of other items yesterday, so expect ’em to keep coming. In even better news, you may notice my stock has undergone a serious edit. As someone who’s been in the vintage clothing business in one form or another for many years, I’ve clung to the idea that vintage shops are crammed with the best of every decade. And while that’s usually true of brick and mortar shops, selling online is a whole other animal. To (ugh) brand yourself properly online, you have to streamline your product.

 With that said, from here on out Goldmine Trash will primarily cater to a late 1960s – 1970s ‘romantic meets rocker chic’ aesthetic… with select earlier and later pieces which compliment this style tossed in.

 My 40s/50s/rockabilly/pinup style inventory has been transferred here >

Knockout Vintage

And for bright and colorful mod gear, go here >

Jolly Dolly Vintage

Needless to say I’ll really have my work cut out for me maintaining a web presence for all 3 shops, but I have faith I’ve made the right decision, and am excited to see where it all goes. 

I’m especially excited about getting the new Goldmine Trash rolling. It represents the NOW (filtered through the lens of the 60s/70s)… and has co-conspirators this time around. You’ll hear about them soon. If you happen to be a guy, you’ll really want to stay in the loop.

A GOOD START

This morning I recieved a message from Liss of Daydream Lily, telling me I won this lovely necklace and earring set from Ten Things jewelry. Sterling silver + aqua crystals = one excited me. I’ve never won a blog giveaway before and wasn’t expecting to win, so Liss caught me by (pleasant) surprise. Yippee! Many thanks to her and Ten Things.

 Speaking of jewelry, I have a big announcement to share soon – a side project I’m hatching for the au naturale lovin’ ladies out there.  Needless to say I’ve been very, very busy lately. My apologies for the infrequency of posts as of late. I’m hoping to get back on track starting next week though.

 If any of my rockabilly dolls are reading this via Viva Las Vegas, I hope you’re having a wonderful time! Drink a boot of frozen margarita and jive to ‘rock-a-bayou baby‘ for me.

 This music lover has opted to stay local this year. Next week I’m headed south for Austin Psych Fest, which I’m SOexcited about! I’ll be meeting up with my dear friend Stacy, who’s flying out from the east coast. It’s been too long since I’ve seen her last.

 Hopefully I’ll run into Chelsea too. We’ve been online friends for several years and tried to meet face to face a few SXSW’s ago, but that was a missed connection. So here’s to making up for that! She’s an amazing gal, who’s as obsessed (if not more so) with music as I am. Needless to say her and her boyfriend are the perfect match – he owns Austin’s own Breakaway Records. Sweet, eh?

So many great things are happening right now. I can’t wait to share more with you when the time comes! Till then, look out for more Goldmine Trash vintage later tonight. I’m in the midst of making some strapless House of Trash dresses for summer too. A big thanks to all the lovely ladies who support my work. Seeing my own creations outsell my vintage always shocks me…. in a good way.

xoxo, SJ

PSYCHEDELIC SWEETHEART

This cutie patootie 60’s mini just landed in stock. *ALREADY SOLD BY NOW*

I can’t say no to vintage dresses like this. They’re a great way to add personality to an outfit without breaking the bank. And if you’re not into spending hours getting ready, they’re fuss free and easy to care for. Perfect for every day wear in other words. For a classic mod look, they can be paired with tights and ballet flats. For a more updated take, pair them with cropped denim jackets and platform heels.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. On Saturday I attended the 25 mile sale – a semi-annual event here in north Texas that stretches from Cleburne to Maypearl. It’s pretty much a free for all flea market, where anyone can peddle their garage sale, new crafts, or antiques. Never the best event for hunting down vintage clothes, but I did manage to snag a few things.

Later that day I did a private buy from a wholesaler as well.

Sadly I don’t have pics to share; my dslr is acting really screwy and needs replacing asap. What dslr’s do you guys reccomend?
