Wildfell Hall Vintage Giveaway

This year, thanks part to the blogging community, I've been introduced to something that I thought I would never have consider wearing - VINTAGE.  We don't have a lot of places here on the island where you can find vintage pieces, but that doesn't stop me from perusing our 2nd hand shops and coming across amazing vintage finds. 

I was recently contacted by Etsy shop owner Amy, of Wildfell Hall Vintage.   I instantly fell in love with the items her shop has to offer.  Here a few of my favs!

Left to right: Faux Reptile Box Purse, Peach Sunglasses, Shabby Chic Floral Purse, Nautical Striped Cotton Sweater, Peacock Print Shift

Amy also loves capturing real people wearing vintage (or vintage inspired) outfits in their 'everyday' adventures. Take a look at her blog, Vintage Seen to see all the lovely vintage inspiration.  Let's get to know a little more about Amy and Wildfell Hall Vintage.

-Introduce yourself and tell us a little about Wildfell Hall.
The name of my store is from my favorite novel by Anne Bronte. I started Wildfell Hall after realizing that my closet was full of vintage items.  I also love to thrift for clothes and often found great pieces that weren't necessarily a good fit for me.  I hope to one day have a 'brick and mortar' store, but in the meantime am happy online building knowledge and gaining customers.

-Where/When did your love for vintage begin?
I first fell in love with vintage as a teenager.  I remember sneaking into the city after school to peruse vintage stores.  All my friends at the time loved old clothes too, so it was hard not to join in.  I love the individuality and 'one of a kind' quality vintage has.

-Who is your style icon?
Style icon? That's hard. Most inspiration comes from street fashion here in Brooklyn, hence my blog!

-Any tips for anyone who just recently found a love for vintage?
In terms of tips for new lovers of vintage, find an era you love and that suits you, also go for great accessories at first as they are a good way to integrate vintage into your wardrobe without huge investment. Always check a garment for damage, if it's broken it might sit in your closet unworn for a very long time.

Amy has also been kind enough to give away not one, not two, but three beautiful items to ONE lucky winner.  The winner will receive; a large white mesh purse with braided handles, a crystal flower pin, and a white floral scarf. Check it out!



Giveaway rules:
1.  Visit Wildfell Hall Vintage shop and tell me your favorite item. (1 entry)
2.  Become a follower of Vintage Seen. (1 entry)
3.  Become a follower of my blog. (1 entry)
(Yup, you can have up to 3 entries!!!) 
*Leave your E-mail Address so you can be contacted if you're the winner!

Open to everyone.  Ends Wednesday, 9/15th (9:00pm hst).  Winner will be announced shortly thereafter. 

Love, S
