careless darlin'

this beautiful hooded dress was part of the collection that nikki found, and is now part of her own collection. notice the black label style in white!

nikki of careless darlin' on etsy got in touch to share photos of the amazing collection of gunnes she scored at an estate sale.
several of these beauties are not only black labels, but are in mint-with-tags-unworn condition, AND they are all totally wearable sizes. run, don't walk!

hypnotist collector (my favorite of the ones in the careless darlin' shop)

thanks so much for getting in touch, nikki!

O.G. (original gunne)

this sweet and surprisingly simple vintage black label chambray mini skirt made its way to our shop via the kindness of one of our regular customers, whose mom was the original owner. it is in new condition and still has the original paper hang tag. i can't believe mom never wore it!

she's got the happy blues

our gunne blog friend, rachel, recently emailed me photos of her newest dress. i love the photo of her with sun coming through the trees! that shade of blue is really lovely on her, and i don't want to meet the person who doesn't love a leg 'o mutton sleeve.
see some of rachel's other gunnes here and here
thanks again, rachel!

thanks so much for sharing your story and pics, alison!

happy new year/the kindness of strangers

happy 2011! i am not one for resolutions...but maybe one is in order for this neglected little blog :)

the dress pictured in this post came to our shop via donation from a kind and generous stranger. and upon recently checking the gunnelove mailbox, i found two more generous souls had shared pics of their gunnes. both of these events made me feel so grateful for this new year, and happy to keep this journal of gunne loving alive and well. next post, another lovely lady in her gunne! but for now, i hope you all are doing well and i thank you so much for checking in on this little slice of calico love.
