I am sooo excited! This weekend I am going on a mini roadtrip to go shopping for more vintage frocks to put in our shop! Actually, I have a bridal shower to go to for my cousin....figured I would kill two birds with one stone. Point is, we are having a sale in our vintage shop. Buy one item and receive 10% off....buy two or more and receive 15%. Fall will be coming soon so I will be on the hunt for warmer styish gear. Come by and check us out!

I have been blogging for some while now. Mainly about my love for vintage and other random things. I thought I would introduce myself and give my dear loving readers a little insight to who "Zach" is.
1-I am not the one in the Twins hat....or with the beard. (on a good day;)) I, Zach am the 'never done before' cat for halloween.
2-I went to school not for fashion, but for cooking. Le Cordon Bleu in Paris was my first stop. Then on I went to Australia for more much needed cooking lessons.
3-The hilarious hottie in the Twins hat is my boyfriend Tom. I have mentioned him a few times. The previous posted rose lace wedding dress? Yeah...that is to wear with him.
4-I love tattoos. I have a small horseshoe that I got at the mature age of 17. (when life long decisions should be decided) My bf has the classic retro tats....pin up girls....skulls and roses. The one tattoo that sealed the deal for me was the heart tattoo that says 'mom + dad'. Who wouldnt love that?!
5-I started loving and obsessing over vintage in high school. I hated seeing people wearing the same clothes from the same shop....everyday! Im more of a 'march to your own beat' kind of gal with fashion.
6-I have a black lab named Oliver. He just turned one year old and yes....I celebrated his birthday. He is the apple of my eye!
7-I love wearing dresses. I have a dear friend that told me one night when we were going out "I love how you always wear dresses". Why not do it up?!
8-I wear make-up about 3 times a week......at best. I just hate putting it on.
9-I love my family with all of my heart. They are my favorite people in the whole world. The funniest too.....
10-I live for traveling. Moving around and meeting new people gets me excited! For now....I will be 'traveling' through the internet to meet all of you!

In my little world of vintage fashion I have two ways of looking at things....neutral or bold. I see a very neutral color such as this mini scooter dress and think "I want to dress this baby up with some color!" A vintage silk bouquet scarf....a belt....just something to make it my own. Are you more drawn towards bold colors or neutral? As you can see at nodtomod vintage....color always wins!

I dont know what it is about the nautical sailor look but I LOVE it! I have always been a fan of a cute striped boat neck top and well fitted shorts. Flats....anchors.....gold.....navy blue..... red and white. Love it! Not sure if its a trend that will stick around forever but I sure hope it does. My obsession with this could have to do with the fact that I was on a boat all weekend! What is your fav trend so far?

I am wayy excited about this! In the third grade, my parents moved us from Miami Beach FL to Asheville NC. Talk about a huge change. Not only the climate...but the people were actually nice in North Carolina! Go figure, I know! Needless to say, all of my closest friends live there still. In two weeks Im going to visit them. Its been about 5 years since I have seen them last and things are pretty much the same between us. Another plus to this trip? The thrift stores are amazing! Little hole in the wall places that have yet to be conquered by the masses. I cant wait to browse the racks! From coats to mini dresses....skirts to peep blouses....vintage pumps to glorious bags. Too exciting! Of course once Im back I will be showing them off....wouldnt you?! What is your favorite place to thrift?

I am totally in LOVE with these bathing suits! They are sooo far from the norm of what girls wear today. They arent mini string bikinis....(im guilty too). They do leave more to the imagination. I showed my BF these shots the other day. Lets just say.....they didnt show enough skin for him! He is a guy. I get it. These 1970s suits show every curve......in the sexy way. There is one up in our shop now...the rest will be up tomorrow! Hope all had a fabulous 4th!
