♥ Girls in Custard Heart Vintage ♥

One of my favorite things about selling vintage is seeing who makes a new home for that special piece once it leaves my rolling racks here in San Francisco.  I'm really grateful to ladies like Shauna and Meeling, who are kind enough to share photos of themselves in dresses from the shop plus a little something extra about themselves.  Don't they both look amazing? 
If you have photo of yourself in something from the shop, send it to custardheartvintage@gmail.com and receive a 15% coupon for your next purchase.

"I'm Shauna, 25, living in Southampton, England and working in clinical research.  Needless to say I am a big fan of vintage clothing/ lifestyle and my favourite era is mid 1950s- early 1960s though I am starting to purchase earlier pieces!  Nothing beats a 1950s sun dress with a fun print, though this English "summer" is making it quite difficult to enjoy such dresses.  I love reading vintage blogs based in California and I am hoping to one day relocate to San Francisco... fingers crossed!"

    "My latest vintage, hails from the 1950's.
A pin tucked bodice in the freshest of greens,
and a skirt that is filled with flowing script and a garden print.
I may not know where she has been,
but I can tell you where I have taken her...
She was worn for a special dinner.
She wore her red shoes.
She laughed.
And, yes...she got kissed.
Blush.
Now she waits patiently till her next outing,
so she can add to her stories."

sandals- Hasbeens for H&M
bag- LL Bean tote

Before these photos get buried on my desktop, I thought I'd share with you one more outfit from my Oregon trip last month.  The temperature was in the 90s so I packed one of the lightest dresses that I own and rarely get a chance to wear during summer in the City.  Like many girls, the nautical look is probably one of my favorites.  I like to think its because I'm the daughter of a former sailor in the merchant marine, but who knows?  All I know is anything with a sailor collar has me smitten and that I've got a ship in a bottle collection that's going to need a room of it's own very soon.
