Oh Hey, Summer Fun! The Fashion Flicks Revival Window Contest!!

It is summertime in Iowa City, and the living is real easy.  Us Shopgirls have been whiling away our time at secret screening of our all-time favorite films.   There are only two rules to making our selections: 

1.  The movies must be awesome. duh.
2. The fashion must be fantastic/interesting.  also duh. 

Why keep all the fun we are having to ourselves?  Sooooo, introducing the Fashion Flicks Revival Window Contest!!!  

Inspired by our last screening, Shopgirl Liz (our Visual Manager  extraordinaire!) designed Revival's window on the Ped Mall as an homage to one of our fave films EVER, using glamorous Revival treasures, of course.

How do you play?  

Guess the classic movie that is the inspiration for our current Revival Store Window and win a fabulous prize!   Just leave a comment on our Facebook page (click here), with your guess and we will pick one lucky winner!  

If you haven't already liked our page...Lets be friends!   Like our page and receive info on adorable new items, sales and steals, and general Shopgirl shenanigans from our store and blog

Still not sure what the movie inspiration is?  See below for a few quotes that might help.  

"You blow it tonight, girl, and it's keggers with kids all next year."

"lick it up baby, lick it up."

"I prayed for the death of BEEP many times and I felt bad everytime I did it but I kept doing it anyway. Now I know you understood everything. Praise Jesus, Hallelujah."

Of course, the real deal looks much better than this Shopgirl's pics, so swing by the Ped Mall and see it in person.

Come on friends!  This will be fun :)

Happy Summer- Shopgirl

Hello! Our Names are Shopkitty George & Shopkitty Roger

You may have seen them peaking around planters, or buried in a buckets of scarves, or even gazing back down at you from a cute Revival Custom Made t-shirt.  They are Roger & Georgie - the famous Revival store kitties.  The story began five years ago, when Shopgirl Abbey adopted George, a tiny ball of orange and white fuzz.  Too little to stay home alone, Georgie came to Revival every day and became an expert at laying on vintage clothes.  Next came Roger, a gift from Shopowner Sheila, almost an identical twin to Mr. Georgie.  These two VIP kitties have agreed to sit down with Shopgirl A, and talk about their lives as the Revival Store Kitties.

Hi!  What are you names?

Roger: I'm Roger.  That is Georgie

How old are you little guys?

Roger:  Well, we are both rescues, so we can only guesstimate.  I am about 2, I think.
Georgie:  Five-ish

What are your hobbies and interests outside of Shopkitty-ing?

Roger:  Ummm, so much.  I feel we just go, go, go.  Looking out the window, eating, grooming,  romping, playing, knocking over glasses of water...
Georgie:  We like snuggling,  We are really good snugglers.  

If you had to pick a cat Style Icon, who would it be?

Georgie:  Garfield.  Without a doubt.  

I am going to ask you a few of your favorite things, guys.  What is your favorite color?  

Roger: Orange

Favorite Fabric:

Roger:  I would say...anything that we can scratch their paws on.
Georgie: YEAH!  I love that fabric.  

Favorite Part of the Store to Hang Out In:

Georgie:  Front window, or sprawled out on the floor.
Roger: I like the Christmas cactus.  

Favorite Current Trend:

Roger: Short manicured nails.  So much smarter looking.  

Favorite Type of Cat Music:

Georgie: Well, we really listen to a lot from different genres, but if I had to pick, defiantly jazz.
Roger:  I have really been into world music lately.

Favorite TV Show: 

Georgie:  We really do prefer to read.
Roger: Yes, we might start a book club this summer.    

Favorite Cat Treat: 

Georgie: Greenies!

What would you cat signature accessory be, if you had to chose just one:  

Roger: We are always nude.   We do have sweet collars though.

What are your spirit animals:  

Roger: It is a bumblebee.  We were told that once by a palm reader.

What do you love about being the Revival Store Kitties: 

Georgie: The attention and fame of course

Dogs or Mice:

Georgie: Mice

How would you describe your cat style?  

Roger: Def super casual.
Georgie: Yeah, def

Thursday Drool: Baggu's Grapefruit Leather Tote

It is a well known fact that we are just MAD for Baggu this Spring.  Those colors, those totes, soft leather pouches, and do not even get us started on the great backpack that was ever made.  Then...we spied with our little eyes the new Baggu Leather Tote in Grapefruit.

Their were fireworks and birds singing...we were practically skipping through a field in slow motion, Lifetime-movie style.   While we don't carry them at Revival (yet), swing by and see the pouch version of this amazing bag.

Drool, slobber. drool.  LOVE.
