I was recently doing a fashion set to go with our NYE OUTFIT POST contest. I put together a look that I joked was inspired by Anna, the director of our Vintage Antiquities dept. Anna is a style guru around the Solestruck office—and well, Portland in general. She is no stranger to a kimono, and always looks put together, but just undone enough that you want to punch her for being so cute! So—LONG STORY SHORT, I posted the blog and the owner of the kimono I used emailed us….SALT WATER GYPSY. Not only is Anna hyperventilating as we thumb their etsy and die over their blog, but we are DYING to use their pieces for styling—-this might be our LAST obsession of 2011, but our love affair of SALTWATER GYPSY is just kicking off. Stay tuned…

Saltwater Gypsy is an online vintage shop specializing in women’s on-trend vintage and handmade clothing. All items are handpicked with careful consideration of quality, trend, and style.¬†Saltwater Gypsy is basically taking over my entire personal mood board for 2012!
