Painfully Hip Design Collective Launch!

Painfully Hip Design Collective Launch!

Here, marking the receipt of our ONE MILLIONTH VISITOR (can you believe it???!), it’s finally happening! I know I said this would be posted today, but here I am 10 minutes after midnight, finally clicking “publish.” I have a whole new appreciation for Etsyers now. This. is. a. lot. of. work.

Here here! Announcing the launch of the Painfully Hip Design Collective’s Etsy store!
Our first photoshoot was tons of fun. Featuring clothes from Thunderhorse Vintage at 2522 J st Sacramento, who specialize in 80s and 90s vintage, this shoot started out as art for a News & Review Article I was working on, but turned into so much more.

Jen is incredibly sweet and creative and generally amazing… oh… and her vintage collection?? PRISTINE. I pretty much have to mop up after my overzealous drool glands every time I go to her store. So when she said I could go ahead and make her part of the collective by offering up every single piece in this shoot for sale to YOU, well, I couldn’t wait get the eye candy up on this page!

Here’s how it works:
1) Gaze upon the lovely photos.
2) Marvel on the garb.
3) Fall in love.
4) Click!
5) Purchase!
6) Don.
7) Soak up ensuing envy.

Rendered in acid-washed turquoise denim, this romper with its twee detailing is terribly in vogue. Paired with boyish accessories and some androgynous sex-appeal, this outfit is ready for romping and hopefully numerous invocations of the words “kids these days”.

We made this high-waisted plaid skirt too cool for school by mixing it up with a 70s souvenir shirt, tooled leather belt and 40s inspired platform heels.
