Vintage Florals for May

3 May

Bed of Roses Nightgown – $25

You know what they say about spring showers, don’t you?  Even though for some of our customers, this wacky winter of an early spring may have brought on more snowstorms than warm and fragrant April rainstorms, that’s no excuse not to be breaking out May flower-prints at the optimal seasonal time.

So, we made sure to stock up our store – both online and brick-and-mortar – with lots of sweet floral prints from a variety of eras to satisfy that springtime urge to let your wardrobe blossom.

If you’re looking to spruce up your work ensemble, check out some of our structured 1960s A-line dresses, like this jaw-dropping blue-daisy decked number à la Megan Draper or something from the 70s with a bit more leg like this fresh green dress for work or play.

Floral Play – $45 for the set

And of course, never ignore the opportunity to mix recent fashion revivals with your vintage finds.  In the wake of all the excitement over the peplum come-back, check out the 1960s matching ensemble (right) we found.  All the gorgeous quality of a true vintage find with all the buzz of a “new” fashion craze.

How do you feel about florals?  Are you ready to bathe yourself in begonias with something like a full-length 1970s flower child dress or do you prefer to go the understated route with a flowered accessory like this little clutch?

Let us know!  We want to hear your thoughts and see pictures of your favorite floral fashion finds.  While we wait, we’ll just go back to smelling the roses (and enjoying the weather).

Ready for Spring? Some Vintage Inspiration to Wave in the Season!

25 Feb

Ah, springtime.  March is peeping around the corner at us and soon it’ll be time to box up our bulky winter coats, shake out our dusty knicknacks, and welcome in the misty showers, pastel sundresses, and shyly blossoming plants that signify the arrival of spring.

Since we enjoy a healthy presence on Etsy, we’ve been browsing around for some sister shops to help you make the transition all the more enjoyable.  Take a look at our favorites and enjoy the warmer breezes to come!

Spring Cleaning:

We know you’re dreading it!  Somehow snuggling up against the blustery winds of winter gives us leave to let dust gather and clutter compile until we’ve no choice but to devote a weekend (or a week!) to a full-on Spring Clean.

Well, it doesn’t have to be ominous.  The darling organizers and shelving from Blue Bird Heaven will give your space the charming, vintage-y asthetic you love while also helping you keep every little thing in its rightful place.

Spring Flowers:

Found in the Ground is an excellent resource for “found” vintage items ranging from gorgeous compacts to quirky figurines.  Check out their collection of ceramic flowers for inspiration that may lead to a new look or a new take on your decor this spring.

Spring Lovin’:

Sure, Valentine’s Day has passed us by, but it’s understood that springtime is for lovers.  Treat yourself (or your sweetheart) to some custom-made, vintage-inspired lingerie by Sandmaiden.

We can’t get over how affordable this gorgeous, made-to-order neglige and sleepwear is!  Treat yourself to something truly romantic and unique with a timeless twist.
