trend alert: fall florals.

woohoo, it's friday!

we are getting pretty darn excited about fall around these parts. we love summer, but the thought of pairing a pretty floral dress with tights & incredible vintage boots is kinda making me giddy. florals are going to be huge this fall. check out some of our favorites!


see by chloe floral pants. buy them here.

l'agence floral dress, buy it here.

roberto cavalli maxi dress, buy it here.

dolce & gabbana one shoulder maxi dress, buy it here.

or...if you love all those as much as i do, but don't necessarily have the budget to buy them, try some of these (much) more affordable vintage florals from EBV. click any picture to take a closer look at the listing for that item.

diy: decoupage train cases.

happy thursday, friends!

i came across the cutest idea this morning via ModPodgeRocks & jane's apron. i love decoupage & i am dying to try this particular project out. maybe even take a few down to EBV-birmingham eventually. i have long loved vintage train cases & this is just almost too much cute! decoupaging is super easy...give it a try!

for this project you will need: a vintage traincase, pictures to decoupage (our favorite things to use for decoupaging are magazines, catalogs, photos, postcards, travel brochures, vintage wallpaper, & dried flowers), decoupage medium (we recommend this one.) , a popsicle stick (to smooth wrinkles & remove excess glue), foam brush (to spread glue), scissors, tweezers (helpful for placing small photos), & a damp rag to wipe up excess glue.

1. make sure train case is clean.
2. cut pictures.
3. arrange pictures before you add glue.
4. use a generous amount of glue.
5. use popsicle stick to push down pictures & smooth out excess glue.
6. once all your pictures are dry, coat item completely in decoupage medium.
7. continue to add the medium until you get the desired result. just make sure you keep adding it until pictures are smooth.
8. be sure to let it dry completely.
9. while you are waiting on your traincase to dry, CLICK HERE! to go check out all the awesome vintage auctions ending tonight at ebv.
10. enjoy! (your super cute new traincase & the vintage dress you bought while waiting on it to dry.)

i love you guys! have a beautiful day.

festival fashion: outside lands festival & EBV matchups.

good morning, sunshines!
...and a happy wednesday to you! i love festival fashion, possibly more than any other kind of fashion, & free people did a great job of capturing some great looks on their blog this week at the outside lands music festival in san francisco. we've taken some of the looks & matched them up with pieces currently for sale at EBV, to make it easy for you to create some of these looks on your own. let me know what you think!
