Vintage Hem Customer Spotlight: Brittany

Tell us about you?
I love high heels and pedicures. I'm a total sucker for movies based on a true story and I buy everything the door-to-door salesmen are selling. I wish I had more time to read. I'm a budgeter and debt free junkie. I love autumn and my favorite vacations are weekend trips to cold places like New York and San Franscisco. I dream of driving a small, fast car and living in a condo in the city. I hate camping, grocery shopping and doing laundry. I'm a bit of a closet feminist and I homebirthed two of my kids. I collect cake stands, I think I have at least 20. I'm just starting a party consulting business. It's so much work, but I love it. I'm always planning a party in my head.

Tell us about your family?
I have one wonderful husband and four crazy kiddos. We have a lot of fun together. We currently live in Davis County, UT.

What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
Lots of organic greens and vegetables. Nuts & seeds. Hemp milk, almond milk, rice milk. Vegan leftovers. Yeah, no meat here.

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be?
Audrey Hepburn. She seemed like such a glamorous, sweet, genuine person.

What was the last movie you went to see?
Night at the Museum 2. We took the kids to see it.

What is your favorite song?
Oh, don't get me started. Lately I love "Charm Attack" by Leona Naess and "Rain On My Tin Roof" by the Avett Brothers or "I Still Care for You" by Ray LaMontagne (my husband went to highschool with him). But my real love will always be old 80's alternative. 

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
Not a superhero, I'd be Mary Poppins.

What is the one thing you are most proud of?
My four beautiful children. 

If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
France. But I've never been there. Yet. 

What is your best secret (that you're willing to share)?
I hate to shave my legs. I went my whole senior year of high school without shaving my legs, just to see if I could. I was in another crazy phase of not shaving in college when I met my husband. He married me anyway. Even now, I usually only shave on Sunday or for swimming. I wear jeans all summer long, just ask my sister.

What is your favorite Vintage Hem?
I currently have five slips. But Eyelet Tower is my favorite--it goes with everything.

Oh yes I did!

Here is a picture of me (Janine) in a shirt (yes shirt) with an instant VH classic, Effie's Dessert in black.  I intended to wear the shirt with jeans, but this worked so well and I was thrilled with the results.  

We want to know how you are wearing your Vintage Hems!  Let's start by emailing me pictures of yourselves in your fav slip!  We are so excited to see how you've made them your own.
