Hello there, and welcome to our blog! We are Stefanie Hiebert & Erin Thiessen, best friends from Winnipeg, with a shared love of all things vintage! Our blog is a place where we get to write about our passion for vintage, whether it be fashion, home decor or music & film. We share little snippets of our daily lives and different things that inspire us. So if you are a new reader, welcome! We are really excited to have you be apart of our little world! Here is a mini tour of our blog, and we hope that you enjoy the vintage loveliness as much as we do!

First things first, we have two weekly features on our blog. The first one is Sixties Sunday where we post about anything 1960's related, whether it be sunken living rooms, our favorite designers, or wacky kitschy recipes. The second feature we have is Hues-day Tuesday, which is where we create a new color story of pretty photos every week.
We also blog a bit about ourselves and our husbands, Emery and Derek. We like to share stories and photos of exciting trips that we've gone on or new experiences we've had! Get to know us a bit better by reading some of our favorite personal posts:

Another important addition to the Oh So Lovely family is our mobile vintage shop, Olive! She is built inside of a gutted and renovated 1956 Cardinal trailer, that we have packed full of vintage gems! This summer we are traveling around to various events and festivals with her, so if you live in the Manitoba area please stop by and say hello because we would love to meet you! If you want to know more about Olive, here are some of our favorite posts about her:

We also recently opened our own brick-and-mortar vintage boutique in downtown Winnipeg called Rhymes With Orange! It has always been our ultimate dream to open our own store, so we are over-the-moon about getting to work at our dream job everyday! Curious about what our shop looks like? Well then take a peek at Our Shop Tour (Parts 1 & 2.) You can also read an article that was published about our new shop in The Winnipeg Free Press!

The second you set foot into either one of our homes, it would become immediately apparent that we are completely head-over-heels for anything and everything vintage. We have decorated from floor to ceiling with our favorite kitschy retro knick-knacks and furniture. In the future, we will be posting full home tours so you can see for yourself exactly what we are talking about, but in the meantime take a peek at a few of our favorite vintage posts:

Like most girls, we are also suckers for fashion! We like to post about our fashion inspiration, our style muses, and what we wore to certain events. Here are some of our favorite fashion related posts:
We also have some very talented friends and family and we love to share what they are up to!
