Sorry for the lack of posting lately! I have been super busy with work that's not Wear The Canvas, have been in a sort of funk lately, and I've also just been really trying to upload all my vintage to my shop before the new year. I hope to get back to my regular posting soon! Until then, enjoy looking at these goodies I just added to my store.
Hello lovelies! I am offering 40% off everything in my store from now until Monday, December 1st! And just a reminder, I always offer free shipping to the US. You can't beat this kind of deal, so hurry on over to the Wear The Canvas shop to snag yourself some awesome goodies!
Do you ever come across a lost article of clothing that you absolutely love, but somehow just sort of forgot about, until you unearth it from the deep, dark, depths of your closet? That's how I feel about this poncho. I've had this baby in my Etsy shop for quite some time now, and it somehow faded from my mind. I took it to the vintage market I was selling at last month, and I just can't believe no one has bought it yet! I think it's one of my favorite things in the shop.
Even though I sell pre-loved vintage items, I like to keep them really clean for my customers, so I never really wear them myself. They hang in my shop closet only to be rotated and lightly cleaned periodically to keep fresh. I decided to give this poncho a spin around the old block because it's way too cute to not be worn! I wanted to show you guys one of the ways it could be styled, and also wanted to get some updated photos for my store gallery. If you want more info about it, you can find it at this link here!

You guys, I'm doing it. I'm finally switching over my Etsy shop to handmade items only! EEP!
OK, well, I will be starting the transition in January, but will be done listing vintage items in December. This Flamingo Frock is the first new handmade item in the shop. It's WAY overdue, but I like to think of it as fashionably late! You can find out more details about it here.
I just had to post these photos! They were taken with my camera while I was shooting product photos, and even though they definitely won't be used for my Etsy shop listings, I just had to share them somewhere. The auto focus on my lens adjusted too much which is what made me look blurry. They are also kind of creepy, but in such a pretty way. I don't know why, but I really like them. What do you think?
Happy Halloween! Today is one of my favorites days of the year, and even though I have work all day, I'm still really excited. I usually start thinking of a costume to make for Halloween a few months in advance, but this year I was insanely busy with work and the vintage market I was selling at two weeks ago. I knew I had to come up with something though, because last year was the first time I did not wear a costume, and it was such a sad day.
I started brainstorming a few days ago what I could possibly be. I really wanted to be Princess Amalthea from The Last Unicorn, but I could not get it all together. Plus, the wigs at the party store are atrocious! I started digging through my closets and found this really ugly vintage dress that always reminded me of the movie Troop Beverly Hills. I realized I could easily make a vintage girl scout uniform from it, so that's what I went with. I had everything I needed too, which made the decision easier.
I chopped off the sleeves of the dress and took them in a little bit, then shortened the hemline. I added the number 5 patch on the sleeve, and then accessorized it to make it look a little more authentic. I made the neck tie from scrap fabric I had, wrapped some stretchy fabric around the waist to act as a belt, and made the"badges" from felt and vintage buttons. Luckily, I had the beret sitting around waiting to be added to my Etsy shop. I think it turned out rather cute!
What are you dressing up as today? Comment below to share your costume!
Hi lovelies! I know I have been kind of absent on all of my social sites lately, but it's for good reason! I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, and have been trying to figure out what direction I want to take my life/career/company. I've decided to go a different route with Wear The Canvas, in hopes that it will grow in the direction I have always wanted to take it.
I will no longer be posting personal posts to my blog or Instagram account, and want to focus strictly on WTC editorials, designs, collaborations, etc. Over the next year I will be slowly changing my Etsy shop over to handmade fashions from strictly vintage. I still plan on posting the occasional vintage treasure for sale, but only when it's a true gem! This phase will be the longest, as I still have a ton of vintage items to post.
I just want to give a huge thanks to all of those who have supported me, and followed me through my journey so far. It's time for me to really reach for the stars, and I hope you all will continue to follow me on this new adventure!
