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!

Combat Dreary Weather with a Bright, Vibrant Wardrobe

19 Dec

When winter descends, the world seems to dial its color scheme back.

While early nights and chilly afternoons are lovely in grays and blues and indigos, we can’t help but feel a little more somber in comparison to spring’s pastels or fall’s warm hues.

Perk up your day with a splash of color in your winter wardrobe.  Try a turquoise jacket like this asymmetrical tweed or a loud, cheerful orange like this 1970s Coat Dress to immediately draw eyes and shrug off that cold weather for a sunnier day ahead.

When you’re back home, tucked into your favorite armchair with a steaming mug of cocoa, wrap up in something like the beautiful silk robe featured to the left.

Wearing your festivity isn’t a requirement during this time of year, but it certainly can’t hurt when it comes to boosting your mood all through colder months!

Chic, Wintery Fabrics for December

6 Dec

1950s Velveteen Party Dress

With our store-front in sunny Florida, Yesterdaze will greet December perhaps dreaming of a White Christmas but never needing more than a light cardigan.

Though, while we in the sub-tropics revel in the occasional opportunity to slide into a pair of boots, the temperatures in the rest of the States continue to drop, providing the perfect opportunity for those cozy and timeless fabrics to return to wardrobes around the world.

Our etsy store is bursting with options to wrap up in through the winter to come.

We suggest velvet (left), tweed, and wool to stay toasty throughout the holiday season without compromising a sense of elegance and style.
