With the return of some granny fashion elements, it’s easy to make some fashion mistakes. The goal is to take the granny pieces and modernize them. Take these cute little granny sneakers, for example.

My fashion DON”T would be pairing the granny sneakers with ordinary jeans. Not only does it look dated, it adds a heaviness to your frame.

My fashion DO would be to pair the grannies with a tapered leg jean, which not only has a slimming effect, but is more current too. Isn’t it funny how such a tiny variation can make such a difference?

Another good variation? A little roll-up on the cuff:

The trick when adding in a granny piece is to add just one, and mix it with something current. A little bit of granny goes a long way.



In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
