Spotlight on metroretrovintage

So, dear readers, I've been unrelentingly busy over the past couple of weeks, and my blog has been badly neglected. I've listed a ton of vintage jewelry in my GUSsupply shop on Etsy, and I've had a fantastic mentor in metroretrovintage, my kitten cousin. She knows everything about vintage treasures, and has come to my aid a hundred thousand times. That may be an overstatement, but it surely seems like a hundred thousand times.
Her Etsy shop is full of fantastic finds, and I thought it might be nice to make a killer stunning outfit from her listings!
Yes, I'm staring with Reddy Kilowatt earrings. Why? Because they are ultimately groovy.
Then, let's stack up these yummy bakelite bangles. Bakelite is delicious.

We're going to need an appropriate hat.

And I have a weakness for opulet outerwear. Seriously, does it get any better than this velvet coat? I say, NO!

This frock should do the trick.

And the finishing touch, a sparkling pin. Our ability to accessorize is what differentiates us from the rest of the animal kingdom, you know.
Now, we are dressed to go to the grocery store. Huzzah!
Stop in and say hi to metroretrovintage on Etsy. She has great stuff, is full of fun, and knows the difference between bakelite and lucite. Plus, she's one of the sweetest kittens around.
