Friday Finds {Vintage Lucys}

IMG_5911


Smitten.

I am totally and completely smitten with Vintage Lucys. I saw one of her tees, found her etsy store and then spent an hour pouring over all the adorable and completely-unique things she makes. (There are nearly 700 items in her store so there's a lot to pour over!)

I've mentioned before my love for vintage Valentine's. Well, I also have a collection of vintage Christmas postcards and vintage Easter postcards. And Vintage Lucys is everything I love about those cards, literally, right on the front of little girls' clothing.

Plus, they're made really well with high-quality inks that are pigmented directly to the garment so there's no craking or peeling. And yes, they can be machine washed and dried.

Would you like to know which of the 698 items in her store I especially like?

I immediately fell for these bunny tanks, tees and dresses. I think they are perfect for an Easter egg hunt and they're available in sizes that would fit the tiniest baby right up to an adult.

I think this is my favorite dress -- and I'm pretty crazy about the little girl wearing it below too!

But I really like this dress too . . . and, of course, the little girl who has it on.

And this is the design that started it all for me. Luckily, it had the brand name right on the front.

So enough about what I like. What do you like? Go poke around the Vintage Lucys etsy store or visit the Vintage Lucys website and come back and tell me what caught your eye. One lucky commentor will win a "Charm School Dropout" tank. Which, in my opinion, is also adorable and downright funny.

    In the last picture of the two girls together they look like models for a children's clothing magazine. Have you ever considered that?

  17. I love the Kitty Cat Club Babydoll Dress best of all, but I like everything on the site. Precious fashions with style and comfort matter most to me! Thanks for a great giveaway. As always, the girls are beautiful. Gale

  18. We like The Sweet Summer Double Ruffle Dress. We also snuck a peek at the accessories...the Swallow Charm Necklace is really cute, too. We like the dress the best, though.

    Thought Kenna and Michal might get a kick out of Marissa's art in a magazine. If you go to www.sunflowerpub.com/magazines then click on the Shwanee Magazine icon, and turn to page 28 you can see Marissa's article. She is also the spring cover-girl!

    Right now we just have a family blog at www.marissaathome.blogspot.com but in a week or so she will have a website at www.paintingsbymarissa.com. It's almost ready!
