Going Green in the 70’s

17 Jun
Who: Gloria – A young, single fashionista just living her fabulous life
What: A day in the life of …
When: 1970
Where: Tampa, FL
Why: Because 1970’s Fashion is so Groovy!

Gloria slips on her favorite green suit ready for a morning of sun and fun. She will be turning heads left and right as she sashays down the beach in this green and yellow Catalina Swimsuit.

Golden Brown and ready for a divine lunch date, Gloria throws on a gorgeous green sun dress and grabs her favorite green purse. Looking great in green Gloria is off to wow her gentleman friend and enjoy a lite lunch on the patio of her favorite local restaurant.

A morning at the beach and a lunch date, can it get much better then this?….if you’re as fabulous as Gloria it gets much better. Gloria stops at home to find evening attire for a night of drinks and dancing with her girlfriends. Out of her closet Gloria pulls a yummy yellow nylon blouse from Cole of California. She straps on a great green leather belt and grabs a sleek green patent leather purse. Once again Gloria is looking good and ready to end her night having fun with her friends. Just another day in the fabulous life of Gloria.

Wondering how much it would cost to go green like Gloria? Let’s recap Gloria’s look:

1. Gold Wedge Sandals – Size 9M – Kenneth Cole $25.00
2. 1960s Green Patent Leather Purse – A Cutie – Great Mod Fashion $20.00
3. Perfect Summer and Spring Green Flowered Straw Purse – Tote Bag – Daisies $20.00

6. A Cool Summer Breeze – 1970s Green Floral A Line Dress – Size 12 $30.00

I know, shocking but true. Not only is Gloria a fashionista but she’s smart with her money. No wonder she’s living the good life!

Today we’ll feature the more traditional Father’s Day gifts with a unique spin. We’ll also give you a taste of the really unique gifts that you can’t find any where else.

Maybe the Father in your life needs a tie but doesn’t want your average department store find. Check these ties and unique tie clips.
As you can see, we have ties and tie clips for almost any type of Dad. The humorous dad, patriotic, cowboy, hunter, and retro Dad. Check out the Yesterdaze shop for the pricing, descriptions and more pictures of each item.

Maybe it’s not a tie that your Fly Daddy needs but a belt or belt buckle. Check out these great finds:
My personal favorite is the “Amazing Baseball Belt Buckle – Burbank 1948 – Collector’s Item ” (upper right corner). This buckle would be the perfect gift for any father who loves baseball (and really, what Dad doesn’t love baseball?)

Not only do we have ties, tie clips, belts and belt buckles, but we also have great vintage cuff links:

I also love this letter opener and mechanical pencil. Each is unique and the perfect find for this Father’s Day:

Father’s Day – For the Fly Daddy!

2 Jun

The word “Dad” used to bring to mind thoughts of a middle aged man wearing black socks with shorts and sandals. The modern day Dad is fashion savvy, knows the latest trends and how to work his “mojo”. The modern day Dad plays in a band (or at least wishes he did).
The Dad of today doesn’t want the standard tie from a department store. Get him something unique, retro, earth friendly, and inexpensive (you don’t have to tell him the last part of the equation).
It just so happens YesterDaze is the perfect place to shop for your Dad this year. You’re bound to find something your Dad never knew he wanted so badly.

For starters…Unique vintage shirts. Everything ranging from authentic Hawaiian, to Cowboy to Bowling shirts – and everything in between.

Maybe the Dad in your life needs a great pair of vintage pants, to match is new retro shirt. Check out just a couple of what YesterDaze has to offer.
On the left: “Vintage Lee Riders 5 Pocket Jeans” A great pair of vintage corduroy straight leg Lee Rider jeans.
On the right: “Disco Worthy 1970s Plaid Bell Bottom Pants“Authentic and amazing 12 wide bell bottoms from the 1970s

Your Dad is dressed to impress with no where to go. He may as well have a party with friends and family. But wait, he needs the perfect bar glasses…
It just so happens YesterDaze has a set of eight glasses that will make your Dad the Cat’s Meow:

The “The Pussycat – Set of 8 Glasses – Classy Stuff for Your Home Bar” will be a big hit with your Dad, and all his friends.

Looking good and drink in hand your Dad starts to feel a little “corny” and decides to BBQ. Yester Daze has something for that as well:
The “It’s BBQ Season – Time To Get Corny” set is only $20.00.

After good food, drinks, friends and family it’s time for a night on the town. Will your Dad choose to accessorize his outfit with a fun, retro cowboy look:

or a more distinguished ensemble:
Which ever he picks he’s looking good, having fun and the envy of his friends….thanks to you and YesterDaze.

Thank you for reading our blog.
Happy Father’s Day!
