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!

We’re having a nice time visiting with family and friends-who-are-like-family this week. We made delicious turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pecan pie, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for our Thanksgiving feast.
This was my first time hosting – although I helped with the past two years’ meal preparations – and it was a bit overwhelming. I (mostly) forget that I’m an introvert until I’m surrounded by a handful of people for days on end. I become agitated and feel the need to flee, but I have to push through it, resist the urge to snap at people, and drink more coffee.
We’re likely spending tomorrow basking in glow of the coming Christmas season with local festivities instead of braving the ravenous crowds at retail chains. I’m morally opposed to Black Thursday/Friday in-store sales, but I love to peruse online sales (although I guess it may be just as bad for warehouse employees this weekend as it is for store employees). But as I always say, there’s no harm in window shopping. I am particularly drawn to the preppy basics American Eagle offers. All items are 40% off until November 25!

I am a sucker for simple garments layered in interesting and unexpected ways. Madewell does that particularly well.
