Hello! For the past few weeks, I've been busy preparing for my latest endeavour in the fashion industry: opening up my own Etsy shop. Recently, I decided to open my own Etsy shop specializing in vintage clothing and accessories. I'm already all over thrift shops and yard sales looking for unique vintage pieces for less all the time so I figured why not turn my passion into something more? 

My Etsy shop, RaddayVintage, will launch exactly a week from now, on September 1st. I wanted to give you all a little sneak peek of everything that RaddayVintage has in stores. I've been buying the past few weeks as much as possible and I've amassed an incredible inventory of jackets, purses, belts, etc. 30-50 listings will be posted on the launch date and one new listing will be added per day throughout the month of September. 

I want my vintage finds to be affordable for consumers like myself so all clothing and accessories are reasonably marked between $6-$50. I also want to provide my customers with the best service possible- I have already created handmade thank yous for all the purchases and will be packaging purchases with love (and smarties candies!)

Keep an eye on my shop's September 1st launch as I will also be hosting a contest to celebrate the launch! Starting September 1st, you can enter to win a $20 credit to RaddayVintage by sharing the shop homepage or any product page on social media. The social media platform is up to you whether it be Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, etc. All you need to do is comment somewhere whether it be on my blog or any social media outlets letting me know you shared my shop. Contest will run for 1 week and winner will be contacted through social media.

Mod & Soul

August 2016

Hello! I think I've discovered my new favorite shop in Richmond: Mod & Soul. Mod & Soul is located on Broad Street, practically across the street from Blue Bones Vintage. Mod & Soul, a fashion boutique, focuses on a blend of modern trendy and classic pieces for the sophisticated, put-together woman. If you're ever in the Richmond area, I'd highly recommend a trip to Mod & Soul!

I popped by the shop on my birthday a couple weeks ago to check it out after hearing so much positive buzz about the shop on Instagram. I was instantly impressed by the store's visually appealing interior and sophisticated atmosphere upon entering the store. Almost all of the clothing, shoes and accessories felt like they were calling out my name but there were two pieces that grabbed my heart more than any others: a classy black top and the chic dress that I'm wearing above.

The versatile print, neutral colors and fashionable silhouette all drew me to the dress above. And I can effortlessly transition the dress from work to play. For about $60, the dress is a little pricier than most of the items in my wardrobe but it was certainly worth it.

For this look, I played around with modern simplicity by styling several pieces of golden jewelry with the look. I emphasized the neckline of the dress with a short golden "Tori" necklace and a longer golden tassel necklace. Golden rings, earrings and a masculine watch all contributed to the style of this look. A simple gray purse and matching nails perfected the look.
