We’re full-fledged into summer and one of my favourite things about this time of year is all the fun and colourful tie-dye that we get to wear! I mean, you could obviously wear tie-dye year round, but there’s just something about the idea of reminiscing upon those summer camp days as kids when we used to tie-dye our own t-shirts, that it just makes sense that it’s a summer staple.
To help you guys incorporate some tie-dye into your summer wardrobe, I’ve stocked the SFMW Vintage shop with a few beautiful tie-dye dresses! As always, each piece has been carefully hand selected by myself, and they are pieces that I truly love and actually would love to keep for myself.
The purple dress that I am wearing above has the most beautiful print and vibrant colours. I adore how the purple is mixed with a bright turquoise as well as a more muted yellow colour. The dress itself kind of looks like a two piece set (and y’all know my obsession with those ATM), and the high waist and length hit at the most flattering points on the body. Finished with buttons at the front and a tie waist in the back to ensure the best fit, this dress would be so beautiful to wear with some mules or sandals to chill outside on a patio with friends!
Next up we have this gorgeous green tie dye maxi dress. Similar to the purple one, this dress also has buttons along the top at the front. Accompanying the tie-dye pattern, this dress also has mandalas and suns printed all over! This one is more breezy with the spaghetti straps, making it perfect to stroll along the beach front while sinking your toes into the sand.
The final dress that I’m wearing above is this pink tie-dye dress with a large floral pattern. I think this dress is so pretty and if you’re more on the girly side, you’ll love the colours and pattern of this one. The hem and part of the front of the dress also has embroidery running through it, making the details on this dress all the more exquisite. The best part about this dress is that it’s super flowy, making it a free size dress, so it will fit pretty much anyone! This is literally one of those throw on and go type dresses, perfect for when you want an effortless look, or even as a beach cover up! Throw on over your bikini and you’re good to go!
I hope you guys love the new pieces, and make sure to click HERE for a direct link to shop all pieces currently available in my shop! If tie-dye’s not quite your thing, I’ve also added tons of other NEW summer pieces like floral dresses, gingham, vintage slips, and pretty blouses! I’ll also be adding more pieces for you guys to shop throughout the summer. Happy Shopping!
It’s time to celebrate the first official long weekend of the summer! If you’re in Canada, you’re celebrating Canada Day this weekend, and if you’re in America, you’ll be celebrating the 4th of July in only a few days. So of course this week, I thought it would be fun to put together a little Canada Day/4th of July lookbook. These are just ideas of what I would wear to celebrate the holiday depending on the activity/where I’m going. And in case you’re wondering, this year for the Canada Day long weekend, I’ll be heading up to Algonquin Park for a few days of good ole’ camping. Hiking trails, beach days, bonfires, and BBQs, I’m comin’ for ya!

If you guys missed it last week, I announced the launch of Songs From My Wardrobe Vintage – my online vintage Etsy shop! You can see part 1 of the lookbook that I posted HERE. This week I decided to post another lookbook featuring a few more pieces that are now up in the store, so if you like anything, be sure to shop them now (direct links are above).
All of the pieces in the shop right now are perfect for the warmer Spring/Summer weather. So if you just finished some Spring cleaning and have room for some awesome new duds, are going on vacation this summer, or just need a little wardrobe refresh, definitely go check out the shop HERE. Some of the pieces in the shop, like the denim bomber featured above, can even be transitioned from those chilly Summer nights right into the Fall.
Don’t forget that this is also the last weekend to use the code “GRANDOPENING15” to get 15% off your entire order, so SHOP NOW! Code expires June 3rd.
Let me know what your favourite pieces are and if there are any specific pieces you guys would like to see in the shop in the future.
So I teased something super exciting last week that is finally here!! Songs From My Wardrobe Vintage is now live on Etsy!! You guys can head over HERE and shop all the pieces pictured above from head to toe, plus tons more! The shop will also be updated weekly so make sure you check back often. Since everything is one-of-a-kind vintage, act fast if you see something you like because it might not be there the next day.
I’ve been working on SFMW Vintage for the last few months, from sourcing all the items to getting everything set up, and I’m so happy that I can finally share something that I love and have worked so hard on with all of you. Vintage clothing is something that I absolutely love, and if you know me, you know that I regularly shop vintage for that perfect, one-of-a-kind find. I know vintage shopping may not be for everyone. Some people hate the idea of scouring through racks upon racks of clothing just to find that perfect piece. For me, it’s all about the thrill of the hunt. So I thought it would be perfect to do the work for you guys so you can shop some amazing vintage pieces in my store without the hassle of digging it up yourself (not to mention that buying vintage is also great for the environment!). Opening up my own online vintage store is something that I’ve always wanted to do myself anyways, and just like how I started this blog with no expectations, I decided to finally take the leap and start my store as well.
Each piece has been carefully handpicked by myself, and some are even pre-loved pieces from my own collection. I hope you guys love it as much as I do.
I’ll also be putting out another mini lookbook next week featuring more items that will be made available at the same time. Make sure you stay tuned! In the meantime, be sure to shop all the current pieces available HERE now!
And for all my readers, if you use the discount code “GRANDOPENING15”, you can also get 15% off your entire order from now until June 3rd.
If you guys purchase anything, I would LOVE to see how you guys rock it! You can tag @sfmwvintage on Instagram and we would love to feature you.
Happy shopping everyone!
