If anyone has been following our Insta -> Salvato Collection you might have seen that we have been busy with our new Event Company FLYING STARLINGS
Flying Starlings will be found at SOAM an Open Air Market. This is a wonderful event with local Artist and New England 'Foodies'. You can find us in Massachusettes on the farm coast of New England (Somerset & New Bedford)
The event we have designed will be for children to create Costumier Art and then play pretend around castle ruins, a tea party, and high end beautifully decorated tents. Old fashion fun and imagination - a way to unplug and create memories in elegance and ethereal surrounds. Of course, it wouldn't be complete without a little fairy tale / vintage fashion on the scene. So, if you're visiting the coast of New England this June - October (whether for the Atlantic or the Fall foliage) make sure you stop by.
With all this going on we just did not have time for a typical Salvato Colelction fashion photoshoot this Spring 2019. My love for style and assembling is still alive, and so I thought that this weekend I thought I would try something a little different. I have assembled a mannequin fashion shoot to show and explore a stylish collection that should feed your own inner New England Coastal Living | Marthas Vineyard | Nantucket Island vibes no matter where you live.
Come Shop: Summer is coming and these styles deserve a loving home. Time to buy now so you can pack in your travel suit cases. FREE US SHIPPING - RETURNS ACCEPTED - RESERVES ALLOWED

So this shoot isn't about the clothes as much as I would have thought or even liked. I know, kind of crazy for a vintage clothing shop to spend a hot day filming and getting a whole team together, for a fashion shoot with only 2 dresses to sell. To be fair, there was more clothing, but these 2 pieces sold a story their own sorry and we needed to share it. Because sometimes... sometimes vintage, and the mood, and the beauty around you, sorta take over and an unexpected twist. Sometimes, a story is told by something outside ourselves. Vintage is a story you wear. The echo you put on. It's clothing with a whisper. It's the little magic to your day. The romance on your skin.
I know we will get messages, people wanting that amazing green velvet dress and stunning silk slip dress, so yes, they are being cleaned and will be ready for sale soon! In the mean time, we added some stormy beach weather clothes for you to consider, just scroll to the bottom of this post for your next sea side dress, or feeling-the-chill-of-Fall velvet, or the perfect something to wear while you seek the sirens call.

Often times I come across beautiful pieces that I know I will not be able to sell. They may be stained, tattered, or destroyed. But they contain such detail and beauty, that I have to rescue them - if only for a photography moment.
The pieces that make up this shoot are a mixture of ones that I have had for years to ones I acquired a few months ago. I hold on to them for years and years because I am waiting for the right model, location, and other matching pieces that can all come together to present a fairytale moment. I have had other antique shops think this idea is crazy. Often I'm told; Sell and move on or don't store something you cant make money off of. That is not my style.
This particular shoot I have wanted to do for so very long., I believe it was 2 years ago I got an authentic vintage movie set hot light. I have waited patiently, gathering all the clothes and putting everything together to reveal a whole picture story that is both romance and retro glamour. However, even with all the planning, sometimes things work themselves out on their own. I always went back and forth on if I should do this shoot with dance and ballet or just straight glam.... well, life is life and it all works out just fine if we mix in intent with letting go.
Im so proud how this shoot came out and I get to introduce to new amazing talents, as well. Model Lexi and Make Up Artist Neysa met up with myself an our hair stylist Wendy. We all had a blast playing dress up and honoring the past.
We certainly hope you enjoy our work! Nothing is really for sale here, but we just wanted to show the importance of preserving even the tattered and broken., because there is beauty in everything and a special; form of art in each of those beautiful vintage pieces. So, the next time you go to thew away something not perfect, find someone who just may love it still,
