Hi! My name is Robin and I currently reside in Alexandria, Virginia with my handsome boyfriend and even more handsome french bulldog. This blog is dedicated to my online vintage clothing boutique, Beulah Louise Vintage, which can currently be found on Etsy. My main goal here is to spotlight new items in the shop while also incorporating great finds from other Vintage Etsy shops.
A little background: my shop is named after my late Grandmother, Ms. Beulah Louise Core (pictured) who herself had a great eye for costume jewelry and all things sparkly. I can remember spending countless hours in her jewelry box piling on as many clip on earrings and strands of pearls as my 8 year-old body could sustain, while listening to the record player spin sounds of the 50’s and 60’s. I used to love listening to her recount exactly where she was when Japan surrendered or when Kennedy was assassinated or all the trouble she used to get into working at the clothing factory while Grandpa was overseas. I may have never personally experienced those great pre-70s decades but her imagery created within me a great appreciation that will never die. I hope I can do her legacy justice.
Of course, my personal experience through the 70s, 80s, and 90s has also greatly molded my love of vintage fashion. And all these things collectively have brought me to where I am today.
