Curating a vintage shop is an artform, one that the folks at bo winstonon Etsy have mastered! They have done all the work for you, selecting only the finest items, representing multiple decades of fashion. The shop features a little bit of everything, and I’ve selected some prime dresses to share with you here.
One might think, oh…I could just go to the thrift store and pick up something like this myself. I wish the best of luck to you! However, it’s harder that it looks my friends. These items are few and far between at your local vintage thrift shops. Let the intuitively-guided vintage pros at bo winston do the work for you this week!
“Domestic violence isn’t a joke and this t-shirt isn’t funny. Help us get enjoi to take down the shirt and continue spreading love of skateboarding without adding to the desensitization of violence that already exists.” Ginae Klasek
The petition to have enjoi remove the shirt depicting a women wearing a sling with the words, “He really does love his skateboard more than me,” has almost 3,000 signatures.
The revolution has begun my friends! Stand up for women, take back our power from people like this. Enjoi has promised to remove the shirts, and issue a formal apology, but we have yet to get a written statement from them addressing these promises. The fight isn’t over. WE NEED YOU!
Women being violated every single minute, all around the world, is NOT A JOKE. Media needs to get the message from US – women’s suffering at the hands of men is not a joke.

Please take a moment to sign the petition HERE, and if you feel safe, comment on enjoi’s Facebook page HERE. They aren’t nice folks, so don’t be surprised by the name-calling and child-like responses. You do not stand alone! We are in this fight together.
Kaftans have been around for centuries. Worn by women and men in Africa, Asia and Europe. In the 1960s and 70s, participants in the North American hippie movement started donning these free-flowing, ornate robes.
Handmade Kaftans on Etsy
by Silk and More
Silk and More is by far my favourite shop for handmade kaftans on Etsy. The shop is run by a hard-working, creative woman named Shikha. She is supported by members of her family, and they make the kaftans from their home in India. Her shop features long and short robes, custom orders for events (get them for all of your bridesmaids!), and a variety of fabrics are offered. Shikha has even designed a button-front version for nursing mothers to conveniently nurture their child.
Fast shipping, excellent product, and the feeling of wearing these kaftans makes it a MUST HAVE for summer! They come in one size that will fit from a size S to 2-3x nicely. I wear mine around the house, out to coffee, and camping!
Silk and More has become so popular that several copies of the shop have appeared on Etsy. Make sure to order from Shikha at Silk and More!
I’ve made it easy for you to check out the best of the best vintage kaftans on Etsy! Get that bohemian style paired with comfort and cool!
This was too AWESOME not to share. What is normal, when it comes to people? No one can really say. We are amazingly different. Our characteristics, perceptions, experiences, all make us completely unique. Lets stop comparing ourselves to others, and start showing people who we are. YOU have wonderful things to offer this world, or even just the people you currently know. Believe me when I say this, YOU are irreplaceable, fascinating, beautiful and just right. As long as we keep living with good intention, and sending out messages of non-violence and respect, we are heading in the right direction!
