Hi Everyone!
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving with friends and family!

My sister and I are spending our thanksgiving in LA, our first turkey day away from our family. We cooked our own thanksgiving meal for the first time :-) it came out well but its just not the same as being home, but we are making the best of it!

We wanted to let you all know we are having a sale for Black Friday as well. Its going on now through Sunday!

Happy shopping!

we ought to be together, you and i

"i have all these little memories of you that make me smile, obscure moments that you may not recall, like the time you kissed my waist at a gas station and when you leaned across the van to kiss me while i was driving.

those days are like a dream now, and you're so far away.
all i've got is a hell of a lot of hope that we can finish what we started

before we both fade away from each other and lose sight of how great it could be."
- me

"Whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same." - Emily Bronte

Life is so short, so fast the lone hours fly,
We ought to be together, you and I.
~Henry Alford

i'll be true i'll be useful i'll be cavalier, i'll be yours my dear - dashboard confessional

expression of how i'm feeling]

I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains. -Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

"There may be times when life seems gloomy and dull. At such times we must transform our passive mind-sets and determine, I will proceed along this path, I will pursue my mission today. When we do so, a genuine spring time arrives in our hearts and flowers start to blossom." -Daisaku Ikeda

"But that is life. If nothing else, that's life, you know? It's real. Sometimes it fuckin hurts. But it's sorta all we have" -Garden State

"Have a strong handshake. Watch your back. Don't go to sleep angry. Sometimes it's easy to allow other people to have the power in certain situations and not even realize you've given away your power. We must hold on to that" -Brittany Murphy

"And if I did teach you anything at all, I hope it was to love with all your heart and lie open wide, with imperfect symmetry" -maria taylor

Big News & Massive Sale at LuAnne Vintage

We have a big update for you guys today! LuAnne Vintage is officially relocating to Los Angeles in July :-)

As you probably already know, I have been here in LA since my road trip, and now my sister and co-founder of LV is moving out here as well. She'll be making the move on July 16th!

Unfortunately, we have almost half of our inventory in Upstate NY and will not be able to bring it all out here. Instead, we are putting everything in NY on sale in our etsy shop!

We currently have over 50 items on sale from 25-50% off, and some of the items are marked down quite nicely! This sale will go until July 10th, after which we will be taking these items out of our store for good. Check out the Summer Sale section HERE.

If you happen to live in Upstate NY, you will be able to find these items after the sale in our actual store located in Ballston Spa, NY at Ye Olde Wishin Shoppe, which is run by my mom & in the spirit of my late grandmother June, who is the reason i got started in this business. <3 Here's a little peek at some of the sale items:
(click on the pictures to see the listings)

60s flower child suede embroidered cape - now $99 from $135
gorgeous lacey sequined strapless party dress - now $139 from $185

Saks Fifth Avenue Tuxedo Sequin dress - now $58 from $78

the blossom dress - now $21 from $28

adorable hawaiian maxi dress - now $21 from $28

tiered black charlatan dress - now $44 from $59

wool mohair 70s duster - now $89 from $120

Please check out the sale section soon, we'd like to get rid of as much as possible before Cassie moves to LA. Half of the profit from these items is going directly to funding her trip here, so its going to a good cause!! Thanks again to all our fans, LuAnne Vintage would not be what it is today without all of you, xoxoxo

Also, Happy Father's Day!!

Photoshoot Flashback - January 17, 2010 - Buffalo NY

I've decided to start doing a weekly photoshoot flashback! I realized I have tons of pictures from past photoshoots that never get used in listings or on any of my websites, so I'm going to start sharing them on here, along with some favorites of the past as well.
Today I'm sharing some photos from a shoot I did in Buffalo, NY back in January when I went to visit my good friends Emily & Jackie. I went to see them before I left for my cross country road trip, and convinced them to do some modeling for LuAnne Vintage. Here are my fav photos of them from that day!

I especially love this last one :-)

hope you all have a good weekend! x
