5 things we love.

We're going to be doing a '5 things we love' at the end of each week. Just to feature some of the best items that came in to consign this week. First up:

1. A lovely 1960s metallic dress--
I was able to see this beauty on someone the other day and boy did it look fabulous! She looked like she stepped right out of "I love Lucy!" Lucille Ball has some competition because of this pretty number!
2. 3 1960s brooches--
These babies are perfect to dress up any outfit. ALSO, collect enough of them and you can make your own DIY headband! Picture shown below of one of our favorite blogger's DIY!
(*SO CUTE, right!?!)

3. Alice + Olivia heels
I am in utter lust with these sexy shoes! They came in this week and we all were speechless. They are Alice + Olivia for PAYLESS! Who would have thought?! The consigner said she picked them up in DC. They're absolutely stunning.

4. Genuine Gucci shoes (mens)
These are just so suave for our strapping young men of the modern decade. Gotta love some of our items for the men!

5. 1970s Men's button up
I am in love with this shirt! If I saw a man walking down this street with this shirt on, I'd follow him around everywhere. I think every man should own a shirt like this. So groovy.

Oh and of course we love our sweet Jade! Can't forget about the shop kitty!

There you have it, five things we love! It's time for you to find your own five things! Come on down to Zoe's Boutique today, we'd love to see you!

We all hope you're having a beautiful day,
Zoe girls + Jade.

Our most faithful Zoe girl.

This girl has the ambition to sit outside our shop for hours upon hours perfectly posing and enticing customers to stop in our door. What dedication she has, wouldn't you say? We couldn't have a more dedicated employee here at the boutique. PLUS, she does this for free! In return, we dress her up in some of our favorite pieces that stop in our store! Fair trade, no doubt!

Today she's wearing a beautiful 1970s patchwork skirt and a lovely white blouse topped off with perfect jeweled accessories!

We just wanted to share some of our newest summer pieces! All the lovely yellows and greens this world has to offer are all definitely in our vintage selection here at Zoe's!
Here's just a peak, you gotta come down here to get the full look :)

Also our MEN'S section is shaping up more and more, we have some snazzy shoes and suitcoats from decades past!

Intrigued now I'm sure, it's time to stop by then, we'll be waiting for you!
The Zoe gals!

The kitties of Zoe Shop!

Our precious Zoe Shop kitty, Miss Jade!

Gracie, Deborah's kitty from home came to shop yesterday!

We hope everyone is having a beautiful day!

Featured Favorites: Elsie Flannigan

What a darling gal this is! With her vintage style and owning her own boutique, she's a featured favorite we needed to share! You read about girls who do it all and she is definitely one of the best! 'She owns Red Velvet, an independent boutique full of magical handmade and vintage things! Red Velvet is her full time job and it's currently a family run business! She started this adventure almost ten years ago with her best pal, Rachel, and sister, Emma.' They recently started a clothing line of her very own designs, her video lookbook is below:

So. Not only is this lady talented in business owning, she's also a creative designer. We had to feature her as one of our favorites in our new 'Thursday Featured Favorites' section! Such an inspiration to all of us. She proves that we certainly can do it all, and still be happy in the journey!

Please check her out and comment on our post with what you love most about her blog! We'd love to get some feedback as to what works in your eyes on her blog so we can get ours crankin' even more!

Stay beautiful everyone.
