new in the shop

I added a few wonderful pieces to the Fancy Fine Vintage shop today, including a 1960's lace blouse (first photo) and the 1940's black crepe jacket with lace trim above, amongst other things. Go take a peek in the shop and see if you fall in love!

happy thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, lovelies! Today I am thankful to be celebrating my two year anniversary with my mountain man in our warm home. I am also thankful for my wonderful family on the west coast (whom I miss terribly), my buddies spread out all over the place (I hope you are all enjoying this day too), the delicious rare steak I plan on eating tonight instead of turkey, and my job which makes me excited to get up and going every day. The world has been a weary place lately but I am still grateful for my place in it, and all I can do is appreciate the small, beautiful moments that come my way.

autumn sun

photos by Darcy Rogers

sunglasses  anthropologie
dress  lonely hearts
bracelet  vintage
shoes  rachel comey

These photos were taken back in late September and I'm already mourning the absence of bare legs and light dresses. Fortunately this week is going to be warm in these parts for about, oh, five minutes. I'll take what I can get before it turns cold again!

dream girl

photos  Johan Santos
art direction & styling  Ashley Ording
hair & makeup  Katherine Sterrett
model  Emily Theobald

I'm so pleased to finally share these photos with you from a recent collaboration with a few favorite folks. I have had colorful seventies visions in my mind for a while and it was fun to create dream outfits for this dream girl, Miss Emily Theobald, using all vintage pieces from my own collection. I'm lucky enough that my 9 to 5 just so happens to be styling too, but it's wonderful to step outside of that zone for a day and really have some fun. I hope these collaborations keep on coming!

P.S. I am selling a few of the vintage pieces used in this shoot, including the entire first outfit, the lace trousers, the orange ruffle dress, the gingham skirt, and the orange lace blouse. Email me at if you are interested in more info!

unintentional flamenco vibes

blouse  vintage
skirt  suno

Freshly cut hairs and a glimpse into my guest room, which I haven't yet shared photos of because it has quickly turned into a massive second closet / office. The embroideries on the wall all belong to my boyfriend, who has quite a thing for flowers, boats and birds. The little framed number resting on the fireplace to my right says "Clarity is Such a Fucking Rarity" and was a birthday gift from me to him based on lyrics to an old rap song he wrote. Oh, and my outfit wasn't intended to be a nod to flamenco dancing but those sleeves don't lie.

falling into place

A few photos of the main living area in my apartment, which I'm still rearranging constantly because I can't help myself. It feels mostly complete, and definitely cozy. The new chartreuse velvet couch was won at an Anthropologie silent auction last week and makes a good buddy for my other velvet couch. Is there such a thing as too much velvet? Maybe don't answer that. Now I just need a few more giant plants in here and I'll be good!
