PSB Vintage Storefront......Coming Soon!

 

We've been away for so long, so many life events have occurred since our last blog post, I've had a vintage-inspired wedding celebrating the nuptials between my college sweetie and I, shortly afterwards we welcomed a beautiful magical baby boy into the world making our family of 3 into 4, I've also most recently had a slight career change from visual merchandising into a career in personal styling. Which included me even launching a styling firm, Style and Grace Wardrobe Consulting. However, despite all these amazing life changes, my heart and mind never steered too far from Pearled Shoebox......

Therefore it gives me so much pleasure to share the news that I have been blessed with the opportunity to open a storefront in Oak Park's Art District at 140 Harrison! WE FINALLY HAVE A HOME TO CALL OUR OWN!! Its been one long journey getting here, one that I prayed over, cried over and spent countless hours tending to and I am so grateful to begin this new journey. Soft opening dates to come....in the meantime I will be blogging about all the progress we make while opening this dream store of mine.

To all my Pearled Shoebox customers and supporters thank you for being on this journey with me....we still have so many good times ahead and beautiful vintage fashions to come!

Its truly a beautiful  surreal feeling when you watch your dreams manifest before your eyes! I've been working towards this for 8 years and have been talking about it for even longer. Such a sweet moment

Sequins, Golds & New Year Wishes

I've been away for a bit but I'm back to close out the year on the blog with a snippet of the vintage goodness that's in our shoppe to come in 2017!

 

But before I do I'll like to reflect on the past 12 months and I can truly say this year has been good to me. From saying yes to my college sweetie's proposal to moving into our own lil love nest in my beloved Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago to launching this here blog. 2016has truly been short of amazing. Of course I've had some rough patches within business and personally but all in all I'm grateful to say that I progressed further than where I was last NYE. And that is truly my only wish for myself...... and for you. Continual progression from year to year! Gosh I'm so pumped for 2017!! 

 

So to celebrate new beginnings and fresh starts, I'm highlighting some of Pearled Shoebox's festive vintage goodies that's also transitional from season to season; an 80s black sequins top that I scoured while in London.... a 70s gold silk pleated aline skirt that was found this year while vacaying in New Orleans.....and last but not least my fave from this ensemble, an 80s gold and black sequin cross body. Doesn't it just scream Gatsby....speaking of Gatsby I hope you all party like him tonite while ringing in 2017!

I only lasted 2 mins out in that Chicago cold before I had to put my faux fur on lol ...I scoured her from Forever XX1 a year or so back. Simply love pairing our vintage gems with modern peices!
