I’m happy to share that a very talented friend of mine has featured my vintage clothing Etsy shop, The Gibbson Girl, on her fashion blog, Pleats & Pearls, today. She gives you her vintage picks for the holiday season (because, yes, it’s approaching fast!).

a new look for mia prima casa

I founded the Mia Prima Casa (which means “my new house” in Italian) blog three years ago as a way to keep family and friends updated on everything I was up to post-college. This usually meant updates on how I was decorating my new (first!) apartment, what I was I was eating (usually plants), and what I was wearing.

Gibbson Girl: Vintage, travel, and style for the adventurous woman.

Today, Mia Prima Casa has a whole new look. I like to think the blog now more closely represents the woman I am today: well traveled, well dressed (or at least trying to be!), and beginning a whole new chapter (business school).

Mia Prima Casa is far from gone, but she goes by a new name now. The Gibbson Girl, which is based off the 1910s fashion icon, evokes a sense of adventure, travel, and boldness. She has a vintage flare. Wears a crazy hat with confidence. Runs marathons. Travels to London. And most of all loves a night in with her cat, watching Downton Abbey and sneaking looks at her old travel diary pages.

I am so ready for this new chapter. And I hope you all are ready to meet the Gibbson Girl.

Summer is officially here! I just left Amsterdam (where the temp just dropped to sixty degrees and the sun was reluctant to shine), so I needed a reminder of sunny days and warm breezes. Here are some of my vintage Etsy shop The Gibbson Girl’s best summer styles.

Personally, I’m particularly fond of the sheer blouse. What is your favorite summer style from the shop?

Besides having twice as much fun, hanging out with my twin sister also gives me the opportunity to use her as my model for my vintage Etsy shop, The Gibbson Girl. Usually, I photograph myself wearing the vintage styles that I sell in the online shop, but the process is usually tedious and well, not super fun. But I love taking photos of my sister wearing the clothes. Recently, we decked her out in some of my favorite European vintage finds and conducted a photoshoot among the cobblestone streets and narrow canals of Den Bosch.

I think we got some pretty darn good shots! Now you’ll have to check to back soon for these pieces on the Etsy shop. 🙂

tot ziens!

prepping for the flea

I spent the day getting The Gibbson Girl ready for the flea market! This Sunday I’ll step out of my comfort zone to sell my vintage wares person-to-person at a local flea market. Wish me luck! (And if you have any tips, I’m all ears!).
