Almost three months ago to the day, the very FIRST Sammy Davis Vintage giveaway concluded — and my mission of making vintage fashion more accessible to the contemporary lady GREW!
Before the 21 Dresses Giveaway– which you can read more about here and watch the announcement video here — Sammy Davis Vintage curated and sold vintage fashion to the creative women of New York City through events, showroom sales and an online store on Market Publique. As a vintage seller, my mission was not only to influence your fashion decision toward vintage & second hand fashion, but to inspire you to go forth and seek it out on your own, too.
In other words: I wasn’t just cooking you ladies some fish. I was teaching you how to fish — or rather, shop & wear vintage fashion/thrift store style — for yourselves.The 21 Dresses Giveaway represented both the beginning of a new era and end of an old era for Sammy Davis Vintage. In pursuit of growing my mission’s influence to the mainstream, I launched my YouTube channel and successfully founded the brand as a media property LLC. I decided to direct my attention to building the brand as your go-to destination for all things vintage fashion & thrift store style, and to step away from selling so that I could continue to teach you how to fish for yourselves.
I may no longer identify as a full time vintage seller, but I will forever identify as a full time vintage advocate. That’s why I asked the 21 Dresses Giveaway winners to send me pictures of them wearing their great prizes — vintage dresses hand selected for them from the Sammy Davis Vintage collection! Below is only a sampling of the 21 winners from the giveaway, and only ONE giveaway of many I hope will debut in the near future.
Because in life, it’s not what we make that matters — it’s what we give. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reach my highest potential as a vintage & thrifty stylist and feel-good fashion advocate. Your inspiration empowers!
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone — and if you have a picture of yourself wearing vintage fashion or a great thrift store find that you’d like to share, you know where to find me! Leave a note in the comments below, or shout me a holler on email ([email protected]), Twitter or Facebook.
