The Painfully Hip Design Collective has teamed with the peerless ModCloth.com for SS09! When I saw their Spring/Summer arrivals, I just knew they would marry our latest vintage finds perfectly! In the following photos you will find ModCloth’s Wood Street Shoes, The Cover Girl’s Derby, Thumbelina Dress in Blush, and Variety Hour Romper (Don’t forget to use your 10% Painfully Hip Discount – coupon code: PAINFULLYHIP), along with some stunning vintage finds (more info about online availability below)!
Modeled by Liz Liles and Jillian Oliver – You ladies were such beautiful troopers!

Special thanks to the lovely Michelle LaJeunesse for letting us visit the stunning Indy on his ranch – He was such a beautiful and well-behaved steed! and to the nice old man who allowed us to trespass on his beautiful property.
As an experiment, the Painfully Hip Design Collective has been tons of fun… I can’t believe how lucky I have been to have such crazy team of talent willing to pitch in to make such beautiful photos. I love it! That said, having a vintage store is a ton of work!! I have a whole new respect for online boutique owners. With my tiny apartment, my graphic design business and lack of superfluous funds, I am realizing that the Collective is going to have to take a backseat unless I can reduce the workload and get more of these of these pretty things into your hands!
Practically every piece in this photoshoot is in perfect condition and for sale! If you have any interest in purchasing an item you see in these photos, please let me know in the comments and I will hook you up! I will put your object of desire up on either the Etsy store or on the amazing vintage auction site, Market Publique and via email, you will be among the first to know about it!
