summer styles at 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. 🙂

vintage (scottish) bangles and beads

I am in love with the UK’s charity shops. Not only are they clean and well curated, they are also extremely common. In Glasgow, I spent a couple hours popping in and out of charity shops on the West End alone. Even in small northern England towns, I found them on nearly every block.

I was also delighted to find quite a few excellent vintage jewelry finds at the charity shops. The vintage bangles in particular caught my eye and I bought more than a few for my vintage Etsy shop, The Gibbson Girl.

Keep an eye out for these finds in the shop soon!

Cheers,

Sarah

vintage (german) handmade scrunchies

I made a point of visiting Berlin’s Humana (similar to a US GoodWill) when in the German city a couple days ago. I love to see the different vintage styles that each European city has. Amsterdam is saturated in hip, bright 90s vintage, and Berlin doesn’t seem to be too different. However, what I found particularly interesting about Berlin vintage is that a portion of it belonged to East Berlin, which was dominated by DDR-sponsored fashion. Which meant cheap, plastic fabrics and styles that tended to run behind Western Germany’s trends. But this unique fashion history makes Berlin that much more interesting while shopping for vintage.

The Humana I visited in Berlin just happens to be the largest one in all of Europe, and I spent a number of hours diligently scouring each of the four floors for great vintage finds to add to my Etsy shop, The Gibbson Girl.

To my luck, I discovered five handmade vintage scrunchies and snatched them up immediately. What a unique find that seems to me to represent the 80s/90s vintage vibe of Berlin today and the ingenuity of East Berliners who strove to reflect their individuality in a stifling society.

Check back soon on The Gibbson Girl to see these scrunchies again!

bis später!

It’s only a handful of days before I leave for Europe, so it’s down the wire on a couple creative projects I’m trying to complete. The first is posting new items in my Etsy vintage clothing shop, The Gibbson Girl. I’ve finally photographed every last piece in my inventory, so it’s time to get them measured and up on the shop!

The second project is my annual Spring Mix Tape. For this iteration, I’m creating collaged booklets. The concept was fairly simple but the execution is slow going (but worth it!).

With just a few days left to finish this all up, wish me serious luck!

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!).
