Our last giveaway of the day is from Little Miss Vintage 3, an Etsy boutique full of glamour and charm, and a special story behind how it all began. Deidra, the owner, shares how her love for all things vintage began:
My love of vintage started from a young age when my grandmother gave my an old jewelry box full of costume jewelry when I was just six; it was a very pivotal moment in my discovery of self adornment. Until this point I had never really had the option of choosing what I wanted to wear or even realized that I had a choice. My style has evolved many times over since then and one thing that had never changed was the desire to be well put together from head to toe and to be the best dressed (so modest huh?).
Fast forward to high school, I made a friend drive me to another town to go dress shopping to ensure that no one would be wearing the same dress. That year my best friend and five other girls attended the winter formal wearing the same red, sparkly, floor length dress. That's right: 6 girls, same red dress! From there it just escalated, seeking out pieces to add to my wardrobe that were exactly on trend but the version no one else had. Thrifting for beaded clutches, sequined blouses, vintage peacoats. And after many years of friends and strangers asking me to thrift for them or to keep an eye out for certain items, I finally decided to open my Etsy boutique. In Little Miss Vintage you will find not only special occasion one of a kind pieces, but also on trend vintage to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe. Exactly those pieces I look for myself to add to my own wardrobe.
