New Beginnings...

My oh my,

I can't believe that I'm back in Gainesville and already busy with school and meetings. Yours truly is finally a senior! I'm terribly sorry about the lack of posts at the end of the summer, life at Urban Outfitters was incredibly busy...though all of the hard work certainly paid off : )
I plan on posting photos of some highlights of my summer in Philly as well as some deets about my incredible internship very soon, I can't wait to share with you all. In the meantime, I'd love to tell you about one of my latest projects.

My first day back in Gainesville was very exciting because upon my arrival I had a few hours to style looks for my own photo shoot with one of my favorite local publications, The Fine Print. This summer I was asked to write a 'Guide to Gainesville Thrifting' for The Fine Print's "Guide to Gainesville" edition, which comes out today! Of course, I jumped at the opportunity. When I was asked to put together outfits inspired by my love of thrifted finds to be shot for the story, I was both nervous and elated (I'm very camera shy!). I am so thrilled to share some of my favorite second-hand spots with you, as well as show you some of my prized vintage treasures. I think incorporating vintage into your everyday wardrobe is such a wonderful way to enhance your personal style and shop in an environmentally conscious manner. Thrifted pieces are often so beautiful and well made, once you give it a try you'll love mixing in these treasures with pieces currently in your closet. In pulling looks for the shoot, I even surprised myself with how much vintage I wear on a day-to-day basis. Oh how I adore old things!

Here is a sneak peek of my photoshoot:

Photos by Henry Taskier

Outfit 1: Vintage Head Scarf (worn as a turban), Urban Outfitters taffeta bustier, Vintage Escada Trousers, Vintage Florsheim Pumps, Vintage Chanel belt, Vintage jewels, Vintage pearl clutch.
Outfit 2: Urban Outfitters blouse, Vintage 1950s skirt, Nine West jewel pumps, Vintage gold belt, Vintage beaded clutch, Vintage jewels
Outfit 3: Vintage blouse with a pearl collar, Urban Outfitters scalloped shorts, Dolce Vita platform pumps, Vintage beaded purse, Vintage jewels

If you're in Gainesville, don't forget to pick up the latest edition of The Fine Print and check out the story for yourself. I'll be sure to post a link to the story as soon as it's up. I'd love to hear what you thought about the article, feel free to leave a comment with your ideas about vintage shopping in Gainesville and my quick guide.

Can't wait to tell you all what else I've been up to!

Love ya heaps,

Henry Taksier said...

Flavia! Based on what I've read in your blog so far, you seem like a good writer. You should write more stories for us! Would you be up for that?

Flavia said...

Laura: Girl, I miss you so much! Let me know your schedule and one of these nights we have to skype. Ah doii.

Henry: Thanks so much! Of course, writing the thrifting guide was a blast. I'd be happy to contribute more often : )

Francesca said...

This was such a great piece! I love The Fine Print! You should write for them again. I would love to see one of your DIYs in print.

Juliette said...

I saw your article in The Fine Print and I thought I would check out your blog :] You can count me in as a new follower!
I just moved to Gainesville to start school and since I'm new to the area, I've been looking for good thrift stores.
Love your outfit and I can't wait to read more about your internship at Urban Outfitters!

Hello there!

Totally random, but I found your blog when looking something up for Urban Thread (an amazing store I just recently discovered thanks to one of my patients).
I too am a blogger in Gainesville (not a very good or successful one, mind you) but I love doing it. I'm also a senior at UF and I love vintage and thrifted clothing :)

Anyways, I am now a loyal follower of your blog :)
