SOTBM – NEW THIS WEEK

Hey guys,

 How was your weekend? Mine was an incredible! I spent the past 3 days on a buying trip through rural Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri. The weather was perfect, the scenery was beautiful, and the people were super nice and friendly. I’m kicking myself for forgetting my camera, but oh well. I’ll go back soon : ).

 Naturally, I bought tons of great vintage. Next months Sisters of the Black Moon auctions will be mindblowing! I can’t wait to drop this batch off to them in early November. Sister Sara will be in town then, so hopefully I’ll get to meet her!

 Anyway, there’s no shortage of awesome till then. Here are some beauties the Sisters listed on Friday, sourced by yours truly:

 

 

 All that glitters. This vintage romper came from the estate of a gal who was a circus performer in the 50s and 60s. This was one of her costumes! It’s totally smocked on the underside, so it has tons of stretch in every direction. Loaded with metallic gold sequins + has a metal zipper up the back. This is perfect for a glam rock inspired look. here

Insanely rare find! Semi sheer light cotton and metallic gold 1920s floral print party dress. 20s evening dresses made of cotton are a rarity, and usually originate from Belgium or France; this likely had a designer label at once point. From a prominent Wichita Falls, TX estate (the wealthiest American city at one point in the 20s, thanks to oil $$$). V neck w/ capelet collar, shirred sides @ drop waistline, geometric paneled skirting, and a subtle fishtail / asymmetric hem. If you’re after museum quality and wearable look no further. Great size too! here

 Gypsy witch! Late 80s/90s burnout velvet jacket in a kimono inspired style. Gorgeous winter floral print, sequin accents, and beaded/tasseled fringe. Perfect for layering w/ basic black. here

Red hot. Sexy 60s/70s mod mini dress. Subtle a-line cut w/ plunging v neck. Zips down the back. Wear it as is for a rock & roll bad girl look, or wear a long sleeved knit top underneath for a sharp mod look. here

Angel of the east. 70s Indian inspired mini w/ lavish pink embroidery, dramatic sleeves, and lil’ buttons along the shoulder seams. The best! here

Ultimate find! Avant garde 80s wrap mohair sweater from iconic designer Pierre Cardin. Deep v neckline, dramatic dolman sleeves, and side tie. Super soft + perfect for the season. Gorgeous deep purple too. here

Anna Sui vintage inspired lovely. Babydoll style w/ empire waist. Lil’ ties at the sides. Sheer cream/black floral silk w/ cream lining. So precious! here

Ooooh yeah! 60s/70s cream colored canvas boots. Stacked heel + front lacing. Below the knee length. Great earthy look. A must have. here

Perfect fall floral. 80s/90s palazzo pant rayon romper. Soft fluid silhouette. Such a dream. here

With a print this bright and cheerful, you can’t help but smile. Different kind of crystal healing! Super cute 60s/70s cotton mini in a gemstone and gold print. Pristine condition. here

60s babydoll mini w/ fringe hem. Perfect shades of deep red in the rose print. Imagine this paired with some black Louboutins! Parisian style romantic elegance. here

Here are a few stunners the sisters sourced on their own too:

70s dolly bell sleeve mini in a patchwork print. V neck + empire waistline + self belting. So beautiful! here

70s southwestern/geometric print micro mini dress. Perfect color combo. Comes with it’s original matching belt even. So cute! here

Ugh! Why can’t I find a piece like this for myself?!?!? Amazing 60s/70s faux fur leopard print cape w/ toggle front closure. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf and STRUT PROUDLY. here

I love vintage fraternal order robes, and this 70s disco mini w/ attached cape reminds me of them. Therefore I love it too. It also reminds me of the Virgen de Guadalupe >

You could go as a sexy version of her for Halloween, yes? YES. Good. Go here then.

There’s lots of cute stuff ending today too. Don’t miss out!

xoxo, SJ

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.

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.
