Photoshoot # 1

Here are some pictures from our first photo session!

One of my favorite pieces (lace pom pom dress).


Our friend Rena, who just moved to Chicago with her husband, Jon from Texas. We're happy they're here!

Kelly, looking beautiful as always :)

I'm trying very hard to apply liquid eyeliner on Kelly! I'm really great at applying my own makeup. On others? Not so much :)

We couldn't have done this first photo shoot without all of the beauty and hard work of our dear friends. We spent a whole afternoon photographing and celebrated afterwards with burgers at Moody's in Edgewater! It was a solid day of work and fun.

**Stay tuned this weekend! Nate and I are doing another photo session on Saturday, with a twist! Most of the items being shot this weekend are being modeled by Nate and myself. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this yet (the whole "me being in our Etsy shop as a model idea") but we'll see how it goes :) We have so many beautiful items to add. I'm excited.

Until then...

And so it BEGINS.

We're here! We're here! Granted this is just a blog, but it represents so much more for us! Nate and I have been talking about starting an Etsy business for such a long time (since I moved back to Chicago from Texas which was roughly 6 months ago...this entails a long back story which I will bore you with another time). And now here I am: excitedly writing my first post on our new blog. eeeeeee. I'm a dork I know, but the whole idea of this just makes me so so happy. Its been a long time coming!

To get right to it, Nate and I decided to start this blog as a way for people to get to know us as individuals, rather than simple Etsy shop owners. After all, there really are people behind those wonderful shops you browse online. This serves as a daily glimpse into our lives--where we find inspiration, what feeds our creativity, and who we are as dorky, fashion-loving fools. We're just gonna run with it, and see where it takes us! We are serious about our business but the great part is, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We love irony in fashion and we're happy people. Yay for MerryweatherVintage!

Thanks for all of the love and support! More to come!
