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.

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!
