This outfit made me feel like the chic Fashion Editor I know I am. :) Sometimes it’s hard to be a start up company, like we are at Eloquent Woman Magazine; but when all’s said and done and we have our product out on the table with people coming to celebrate our creation and success, it feels great! Working a day job, having a personal venture, and then building a start-up magazine with a team isn’t easy folks, but we press forward knowing there’s strength in numbers.
The outfit that I wore to our party in Pasadena was a vintage find from De Ja Vu Fashions in Claremont. The dress is vintage, not sure of the label it’s pretty worn, the shoes are vintage Charles David lace up oxford booties with pointed toes, my boyfriend’s grandmother’s clumped pearl and gold clip on earrings, and the big floppy felt 70’s inspired hat was bought at Forever 21 (such a steal)! I spent under $20 for this look by attending the De Ja Vu Fashions BAG SALE. You show up early in the morning to scour through bins of vintage treasures (bags, shoes, garments, accessories…everything!) out on the patio and you fill a paper grocery bag with all you can fit in for only $20! I scored the dress, the Charles David shoes, a pair of heels by Guess, and a couple of other fun garments as well…all for only $20. If I do the math it probably cost me around $3/item – now that’s an amazing deal! Thank you De Ja Vu Fashions!
In June we published out second issue of Eloquent Woman Magazine featuring one piece swimwear and the power of the versatile white blouse, as shot by yours truly. See some of my favorite photos from the shoots here:
Thank you Eloquent Woman Magazine team for making our art come alive – I love you all! :)
