two birds remix

we're doing a little something different for the remix today! as most of you know, megan and i own a small business doing vintage pop-up sales. we started it two years ago out of megan's home and have since branched out to different venues around the city. we, along with amanda of Salvaged Strawberry, set up a small vintage boutique somewhere around the city for one weekend only and sell our collections of vintage clothing, art and housewares. we pop up up every few months or so, and there is a sale coming up on may 14th and 15th! megan bird and i wanted to showcase some of our great vintage pieces in a fun way! we decided we would each take a two birds item, style it and then swap items. it was a lot of fun! we couldn't get through all of our pieces (you guys should have seen the piles and piles of clothing we had to choose from! so. many. clothes.), so we just selected a few great items to show you! we are planning another photo shoot with amanda in a couple weeks and we will showcase the rest of the pieces then! stay tuned for that. but for now, let's remix!

  1. I love this post! You guys have such great style, I would never have thought to use a skirt as a dress, but it's a great look!

  2. Great Post! You are such great remixers!

  3. Wow! How fun! You two must have a blast styling together. I didn't know about your business and it sounds like a lot of fun. Where are you located? I would love to see some larger photos so I could better see the outfit details. You guys look amazing, as always!
