When I was in the 7th grade, we had a project in art class where we had to draw a portrait based on a photograph of an old hollywood starlet. This is when my infatuation with vintage gowns began. A few years ago I was trying to hunt down the best places to find vintage dresses in Portland and that’s when I came across Xtabay. I’ve spent numerous afternoons at the shop trying on darling dresses and hats, lived my secret runway model fantasy in Xtabay bridal and holiday fashion shows and was even married in a gown I found in Xtabay’s incredible bridal salon.

A few weeks ago, Liz invited us to come play dress up in the bridal salon. How on earth could we refuse? All she requested was that I create another flower crown like I did for my wedding.

If you are a bride looking to take a step back in time, I cannot say enough lovely things about Xtabay…

      You are such a sweetheart Vickie, thank you! And isn’t that navy dress divine!? I can’t stop thinking about it… Felt like it was made for me.

    This is absolutely exquisite! You ARE living out your dreams….what was meant to be and we ALL thank you for this little bit of history into WHY!

    Not too long ago someone asked you, Jade, for the color/make of your gorgeous red lipstick. Would you mind sharing that info with us?

    Thanks,
    Linda
    PS–I’m 65 and want to get dressed up in those gowns, but I am here in N. Italy and when I return to VA in 2014 there is no Xtabay anywhere near me!…so I will dream!

      Oh, Linda, thank you so much for your kind and generous words. I have found that when you put your dreams out into the world, oftentimes they find you. I can’t wait to see what the next few years bring.

      The lipstick I’m using is my favorite red of the moment, M.A.C in Russian Red. I love it and it lasts forever. I highly recommend it.

      I do hope that you get to come to Portland someday and visit Xtabay. It’s such a special place…

        Oh, thank you for the comment about dreams…you are so right!
        AND thank you for the info about your lipstick….when we get to the states for summer vacation I will definitely go to MAC and check out the red….IF it LASTS a long time, this is for me!
        By the way, I have figured out a way to “get married” again! On December 22, 2016 my husband and I will celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary and we’ll do a renewal of vows and have a reception!

          You are so, so welcome! And if they try to sell you the lipliner and primer, don’t let them! I have found that the lipstick stays put just fine without them.

          Ahhh! And a 40th wedding anniversary vowel renewal sounds completely lovely! I am so excited for the two of you. My husband and I will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary on May 26th!
