where to buy vintage

buggkidd  asked:

any cheap formal dresswear sites? I need a dress for a gala


What’s your budget and style? It really helps if you’re as specific as possible so I can help you out! Until you get back to me, I’ll list a few stores & dresses that have varying prices and styles. 

ModCloth - Vintage inspired clothing & accessories (it can be pricey) 

A good tip when looking for formal clothing is to find something that you’ll probably wear again, even if it costs a few extra dollars. This way you’ll probably feel a lot more comfortable wearing it, too.

I’d even say your dress doesn’t even have to be too ‘extra’, dress it up with accessories, a dope hair style and a purse and your outfit will look way more formal than just a stand alone dress. (Unless you want the dress to be the centerpiece, then I totally understand there are some beauties out there) But people often forget that you can dress up a ‘simple’ piece quite easily. Look at models and what their outfit has been paired with if you’re not too great at accessorizing yourself.

ASOS - (a non indie creator, but a reliable clothing realtor) Varying styles. 

ASOS also have a marketplace where users can buy & sell handmade, vintage and pre-owned items and clothing. 

But be sure the seller will ship to your area!

Etsy - Handmade & vintage. 

While I am a HUGE fan of Etsy, I’ve never really found too many formal/gala type dresses on there that aren’t super expensive or simply just bland. Etsy sellers do favor weddings and wedding dresses, so you will find a huge range of beautiful handcrafted dresses, but they are often into the hundreds. 

I hope this somewhat helps for now, please let me know any more details of what you’re looking for in a dress!

Supercorp for the ship asks

I know who sent this in and I love and appreciate you. Thank you for validating my boredom and need to headcanon for my ships <3

Who would throw the other in the pool: 
So originally I was going to say Kara but then I thought about one time she pushes Lena in with such force that half the water splashes out of the pool and covers poor Winn. Now I say Lena because I feel as though she’d start off lounging around on deck chairs reading her book but she would keep looking up smiling when she sees Kara waving and showing off tricks. By lunch time her book is long forgotten and she is captivated watching Kara perfect every dive and engage in several splash wars with Alex. Kara coaxes Lena in the pool with the promise of kisses and who is Lena to resist her wife-to-be. Kara starts a splash war and Lena declares war. It involves lots of them chasing one another round the pool side and with a “no superpower” rule Lena is able to push Kara into the pool, what she doesn’t think about is Kara grabbing her hand at the last minute and pulling her in.

Who is the better carer when the other is sick: 
Lena practically buys out all of a pharmacy/chemist stocking up on medicines, headaches strips and bandages. She takes the day off and insists on bringing Kara soup in bed. Kara doesn’t have the heart to tell her that a nap under a sunlamp would have her fine and dandy in no time so she tends to let Lena fuss. When Lena is sick Kara rushes around wrapping Lena up in blankets, fluffing her pillows, cuddling up to her to keep her warm and toasty, using her freeze breath to make sure the room isn’t too warm for Lena. Then she stomps around phoning Alex or James (it would be Winn but she made him cry last time) and demands “essentials” - “You want me to skip work to bring Lena an extra blanket? …even though she already has five” “did I stutter?!” and “Kara, I am not flying to France to bring you freshly baked croissants for your fiancee” “But she needs them Clark.”

Who would force the other to do extreme sports with them:
Lena do sports? I think not. More likely that Kara gets very excited about the opportunity to do all these fun and slightly dangerous -but not as dangerous as fighting villains who could kill her- sports and Lena watches with a mixture of concern, adoration and lust ;-) because you can bet that Kara turns up in shorts and a tank top as Lena fans herself sat in the front row next to a bunch of frat boys who keep making snippy mocking comments about Kara and her technique. Kara pays them no attention but a time-out has to be called when Lena lunges at one of them for having the audacity to say Kara was “nothing special”. Kara does the cheesy thing of pointing to Lena and blowing her a kiss whenever it is her turn. One time the whole group of Superfriends turns up to support Kara, that’s the time that Lena brings a banner and flags like the extra b*tch she is and everyone including J’onn is forced to join in singing a personalised chant. Alex falls off the bench when it mentions Kara’s ass.

Who would cook the better romantic dinner:
Lena. Kara is not the best cook, she can cook simple things but full meals are not her speciality. Neither have a lot of time to cook extravagant meals. On their first anniversary as a married couple Kara was called away on Superhero duty and Lena had to do damage control at the office. When Kara returned smelling of smoke and covered in soot Lena has made toast, it’s cold but the jam is spread in the shape of the House of El crest and when Kara kisses her sucking the jam off of her bottom lip she can’t find herself caring about their lives being perfect. Though there are some nights where they work on dinner together, Kara chops the vegetables in heart and star shapes, they light candles and it’s good and soft because sometimes their days can be perfect.

Who would build the blanket fort in the living room: 
Kara. When Lena told her she’d never made a fort before Kara immediately set out to rectify that. Kara makes Lena stay in the bedroom as she prepares, whisking in and out of the room to retrieve more blankets and cushions. Once it’s all set up Kara makes a “no pants” rule and then bounces out of the room with Lena chuckling as she trails after her. The fort is one of the most carefully designed layouts Lena has ever seen, with fairy lights secured to the roof and the cushions and pillows intricately spread out. They lie curled up together looking at the blanket roof as Kara fires up the projector with images of the galaxy of Krypton, she teaches Lena about the stars and shares fond memories of her home. They fall asleep in the fort both completely relaxed and happy; that is until Alex turns up to yell at a sheepish Kara for stealing every blanket in her apartment. 

Who would have the best holiday ideas
Kara at first. I say this because she wants Lena to take part in all of the Danvers family traditions - the board game playing, the ugly sweater wearing, the tree picking and decorating. She wants to take Lena to the spot where she and Kenny used to exchange presents and build snow people in the back yard but she also wants to make new traditions and come up with new ideas together. Lena does lots of research and planning for things that could relate to Kryptonian festivities, she calls Clark and asks him for ideas and she thinks of all the places where she would like to go with Kara. Lena gives Kara an itinerary of food places, places they need to fly to and fun day-trip ideas of little villages where they can look through vintage stores and buy mugs of peppermint hot chocolate. They attend a Christmas Concert performed by children at some of the orphanages Lena funds. On Christmas Eve they visit Lena’s hospital with Kara in her Supergirl gear to give all of the children presents and a chance to meet both of their heroes, Lena gets teary eyed when a 6-year-old asks her to sign his cast and excitedly rambles to her about wanting to be like her when he grows up and Kara reaffirms this with a kiss to her forehead and a soft whisper of “smart kid knows what an amazing person you are.”

Who would need to clean out the other’s stuff to make room for their own:

Neither. Lena doesn’t have that many belongings and Kara was so excited when Lena started staying over that she spent a whole day tidying her apartment, moving belongings around so that Lena had half of the wardrobe/closet and at least 2 drawers as well as a clear spot for Lena’s tatty old teddy-bear Mr Fluffington to perch draped in a custom Supergirl t shirt that Winn made. Lena buys lots of photo frames and fridge magnets so they can cover the apartment in photos of the two and their adventures. 


the little mermaid in a modern, magical world (part ½)

An imaginary live-action musical set in a modern world where magic exists. Your favorite characters all have unique magic- meet the characters in part one and see how their story unfolds in part two.

Ariel (Holland Roden) is the daughter of a prominent sailor in her magical beachside town. He wants her to take over the family seaside business because she has the rare and unique gift of mermaid magic. Ariel can turn into a mermaid at will, sing with the fishes, dance with the crabs. And Ariel loves the sea, but she isn’t quite sure that she wants to take over the family business. She currently works at a vintage store on the seaside, where she buys more things than she sells. Secretly, Ariel dreams of doing something no one in her family has done- going to a university. She wants to study anthropology and learn everything!

Eric (Ki Hong Lee) is a graduate student at a respected university, studying political science. He’s spending time in this small seaside town so he can focus on writing his dissertation. He has some water magic himself, and being by the sea makes him feel safe. He spends time on the beach, watching the waves. Sometimes, he catches the glimpse of a tail.

Tips for a boho/Indy style room?

Hi :)

Ok I’ll try answer this as fully as I can so I can link anyone who asks this question to my answer:

For a boho/indie themed room, you need colour, patterns and textures mainly. The room should also feel quite cozy and very personal, so my main tips are:

  1. Add colour, patterns, and texture through cushions, rugs, and tapestries. Use fairy lights, and canopies to make the room look very cozy :)

2. Next choose the right bedding, could be plain or colourful, if it’s plain (just a solid colour) decorate your bed with more colourful pillows/cushions and vice versa. 

3. Now it’s just up to how you accessorise the rest of your room. Choose cute, quirky accessories, decorate your bookshelf, put plants around your room, candles, decorate your desk, put up pictures and posters, have a clothes rack with your favourite clothes/shoes. Just make sure your room is somewhat neat and not messy or else it will just look like a messy room with funky colours and patterns, have some organisation :)

Best places to shop for boho/indie items: etsy.com  urbanoutfitters.com wanelo.com (just know what you’re going to be searching for or you’ll be browsing for ages). Also go to thrift shops, yard sales, vintage shops, or do DIY.

As for where to buy the items: fairy lights can be bought in any large homeware store, but you can always bus some from urbanoutfitters.com if you can’t find any locally. Tapestries can be bought most cheaply at etsy.com on this link, just find the colours you love. For duvet covers I think the best places are urbanoutfitters.com and wanelo.com just click on those links.

I really hope that helped! xo

It could 100% be a coincidence but on the website where we can buy the same vintage Jimi Hendrix t-shirt that Harry bought today there's also the same Def Leppard one that Louis wore this week... Maybe the boys did some vintage bands t-shirt shopping
