Romantic Vintage Pieces for February

7 Feb

While spring might not officially be in the air just yet (Punxsutawney Phil says 6 more weeks!), February presents the perfect excuse to get fluttery and romantic with your wardrobe.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and while you pick out the perfect card for your sweetheart, bake heart-shaped cakes for your friends, and all-around dominate the month of February, you might as well look fantastic while you’re at it!

Take a cue from the month’s obvious color scheme and reach for the pinks and reds in your wardrobe.  Layer according to the temperature in your current locale (our model on the left there brilliantly combined a sheer and ruffled ecru blouse with a cozy angora sweater-vest from the 1960s to create a sweet and stylish ensemble perfect for a seamless transition from a spontaneous rendezvous with someone special to afternoon tea with friends and family.

For date night or drinks with your friends, consider a bolder choice like this sexy maxi skirt made from Victorian lace and left entirely sheer to show off your legs.  If you’re the more reserved type, you can still keep it demure (though daring) with a conversation piece like a silk flower for your hair in a bright, light-catching pink.

Remember, the secret to romance is the risk.  Apply that to both your love life and your wardrobe, and you’re in for a February to remember!

Party Season is Here

14 Nov

With the weather cooling down and the holidays sneaking ever closer, this time of year is traditionally chock full of soirees, dinners, holiday get-togethers, egg nog, cookies, turkey, and more pumpkin-flavored foods than you can shake a stick at.

Whether you’re toasting the New Year or joining your family for Thanksgiving dinner, the holidays are the perfect time to dust off the gems of your wardrobe and give them the showing off they deserve.

As timeless as the tradition of festivity itself, there is nothing more appropriate than a stand-out vintage piece to perfect your holiday ensemble.

Even jeans become timeless and fashionable when combined with a punchy, metallic pair of pumps like these 1960s Gold Brocade or unique, elegant jewelry like these Pearl Cluster earrings.
Of course, the most effective way to ensure you are truly unforgettable is to glide into your evening in a head-to-toe vintage piece that draws eyes (and oohs and ahhs). Nothing quite says holiday cheer like a fashion coup d’etat, after all.
Featured to the right is our “Glittery Glam” floor-length dress, a sparkling, figure-hugging gold 70s frock perfect for stunning your coworkers at the holiday Christmas party or dropping Mr. Right’s jaw on New Years Eve.
We hope you sparkle all the way into the new year!
