Vintage Fashion Meet Mountain Cycle Chic

On Tuesday evening I pedaled over to Red Thread after work to collect two skirts from Target that needed to be taken up an inch (More about the skirts in a future post). I found my seamstress (I just really like that word) Jenn chatting in outside with Rachelle, a fellow designer at Incahoots (9 E Aspen Ave,928.773.9447). While Jenn found my skirts in her studio, Rachelle and I struck up a conversation. She alters vintage-wear at Incahoots and is getting ready to set up studio space at Red Thread. I haven't worn much vintage since undergraduate school at University of Georgia so I made mental note to stop by Incahoots to check out her work. And yes, she did indeed travel to Red Thread that evening on her bike and consented to be my fashion model for the evening.

Thank you Rachelle and I can't wait to see more of your work.

She is one cool girl!

You may just find yourself converting back into a vintage loving clothes girl ;) I love the fact your newly found tailor/seamstress has her own shop and specializes in altering vintage. YES!!

I have a LOT of vintage,(yikes!)... I myself am seriously considering doing what your friend is doing... altering and selling off some of my vintage! ;D
