Last month we celebrated 6 years in business, and wanted to reflect on that time in some way. We decided a great way to do that would be through the closet of one of our favorite customers, who happens to have been shopping with us from day one! Step forward Kim Vee, vintage fanatic, sometime blogger, shopaholic, fashionista, and part-time vintage dealer extraodinaire! We asked Kim if she would put together some of her favorite vintage ensembles she has snagged from Another Man's Treasure over the years, and she duly obliged. In fact, we had a hard time whittling down all of the outfits, as she had so many great dresses to pick from:) We had a lot of fun styling each look for Kim, and seeing some of our favorite things once again. It was a little bit like reminiscing with old friends, remembering where and who we bought them all from! Every vintage dress has a story to tell, and a new one to write..
And so we headed off, with outfit changes a-plenty, to a scorching hot Liberty State Park for some photo shoot fun in the sun....
