In case you haven’t heard, I rebranded my shop several months back. Platinum and Rust on Etsy (formerly Water Lily Thrift) is wearable vintage for the contemporary woman, encompassing bohemian, preppy, and grunge styles from the 1970s to the 1990s. Platinum and Rust on Ebay offers gently used, non-vintage items alongside vintage goods that keep to the cool girl aesthetic the brand represents.
I’m excited to have a new brand, logo, and business cards. The goal is to amp up overall stock and incorporate lookbook features and customer involvement over the next several months. Thanks for your support!

(noun) : a person, as an artist or writer, who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices.
I’ve been attracted to the bohemian, Free People, aesthetic for many years now, but I never really believed I could pull it off. Maybe I like it because I am a Type A personality; I might be imaginative, but I certainly don’t live outside societal bounds or push the limits very far. I am a rule follower. But clothing allows for a little eccentricity without real risk, at least on your days off. My favorite thrift store in town occasionally carries clothing from Free People in my size and I’ve begun snatching it up when I can find it.
Moving allows for reinvention. I can be anything I want to be; I’m not barred by past assumptions. And I realize I never really was.
