Sally Jane Vintage in Italian Glamour

This is one of the coolest things that has happened to me in a long time! Italian Glamour included my shop among their guide to online vintage shopping. I was so excited when they contacted me about the piece and it's always a bit surreal to see my photos in print. I hadn't been able to get my hands on a copy so the always super sweet Anna from The Cupcake Diary sent me the most wonderful bundle of goodies including the magazine. She was also thoughtful enough to include a translation for those of us who are not Italian savvy.

"Jennifer Martin is a US vintage hunter who mixes 60s looks with a Dietrich style. 'I only wear vintage dresses a lot older than me' she says. 'One day I found a 40s dress but it was not my size. I had an idea and thought to sell it. I did and then I sold a lot of other out-of-size purchases. The e-store which is now my job came with the blog. I buy, wear and sell at the speed of light.' "

The text made me giggle a little bit as it's not exactly a direct quote from what I sent in but I guess that's what you get when you translate something from English to Italian and then back to English.
