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).

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!
