Welcome to MAY! I 'm sure you've noticed some big changes to the site look and layout this month, which is something I am SUPER excited about. I've been thinking for years about the vintage community and how BIG it is... Take to the internet and a quick Etsy or Ebay search and you may get an OVERLOAD of options that just seem overwhelming right? Through the years, I've been following some of the best in the game, the shops that put in all of the effort to take these pieces from trash to treasure like I do, and I admire them because it is no easy feat! But how to get them all in one edited place? Well why not start here?
I had started A Part of the Rest as a style blog when in NYC but, after some time... I wasn't into my getting my photo taken so it turned into this vintage shop. You can read more about that in my shop bio here. The original intention was for A Part of the Rest to be a style platform. Now that I have grown up a bit, I understand the value in Vintage shopping as a means of sustainability on a broad scale... something that I can inspire, but so can this entire community. So, I am coming back full circle. Why can't it be both my vintage shop and a showcase of other esteemed vintage sellers and sustainable lifestyle suggestions?
So, here we go! Look for a monthly rotation of vintage shop bios, style blogger collaborations, guest posts, and even some of my favorite things for a healthy and #sustainableinvintage life.
What's going on this month . . .
A Part of the new look will be to rotate a monthly thematic in which to bring together vintage and lifestyle. This months' theme is as simple as the color of the sun. It represents optimism, creativity, abundance and makes everything feel a little warm, which I know we are all looking forward to.
Here are some of my suggestions for bringing yellow into your life this May.
JUST BE GOLDEN
One thing that I have learned over these last few months, after struggling to get back up on my feet after recovering from chronic illness and trying to get motivated to do more with the site.... BE GOLDEN. Its IN YOU.
Something simple to get the mood going for May... Follow the playlist on Spotify and get into the sunny groove with my eclectic taste of vintage and new tunes.
