Time For More Handmade Upcycled Swimsuits!

I Just Finished These Two This Week and I Have Two More That I Hope to Finish This Up and Coming Week
These Swimsuits are Made From Vintage Polyester Clothing That I Found On My Hunts
This Method of Copping Up Old Clothing and Making New Products is How My Sister and I Came Up With the Name Youthanize Vintage
In Some Eyes, Tarring These Things Apart is Wrong and in a Way I am Destroying These Pieces Of Time to MAke Them More Youthful

Summer Look "Hobo Chic"

Im Not Quite Ready to Give Up My Winter Colors and Just Give into Pinks and Yellows of Summer
But With Using Shear, Free Flowing Fabrics You Can Keep the Black!
I Find that Incorporating the Aztec, Native American and Mexican Textiles Allows Wearing Fall Colors in the Summer Heat
Sandals are Great but I Have Gotten Use to the Lace-Up Newsboy Boots That I Have Been Wearing Nonstop Since Autumn 
In These Boots I Can Walk the Dogs, Ride the Bike, or Hang Out at the Flea Market All Day!

About The Owner

My photo
I graduated from FSU with a degree in Apparel Design and combined my love for vintage with my love for dress making in youthanizeing vintage garbs. I have always had a passion for the eras before me since I can remember. The daughter of my father who collects and restores old classic cars and my mother who filled her home with the most fascinating antiques, I guess it just seemed natural.
