Your Summer Maxi!


There is always a constant that clutches at the hems of the fashion industry; rejuvenating itself time and time again refusing to be stuffed into a Manhattan Mini Storage Box to be forgotten forever.  The latest culprit in my book? The Maxi dress. A style that has ceased to find its way to the pearly gates of fashion heaven and since the 70s has remained on the runways in some shape or form.  You may or may not agree with me, but you have to acknowledge the fact that this fashion trend is in desperate need of a makeover….

To read more of this post and to discover some very fashionable vintage and modern Maxis below, visit my new blog at grlfashionista.com!

Time to Crop that Top!


Yep, they’re back! Crop tops! A style forced into the spotlight by Madonna in the mid-80s and worn by teeny boppers everywhere in the 90s; courtesy of pop stars Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Mothers everywhere are cringing I”m sure at the thought of cut-off tees and tight bustiers on their darling daughters.  But, honestly, I’m sort of digging this upcoming trend and am even debating purchasing a crop top of my own.  I know, some of you are screaming at the computer right asking me, “WHY? Why would you do this!?” I actually asked myself that same question.  However, when I started scoping out retailers sites I found that while some crop tops were defiantly too young and, for lack of a better word, too trashy for me I did find some that were more mature while still exuding a fun, free spirited exuberance.  Likewise, these tops can be easily molded to suit your personality. If you are a more traditional girl, but still like to add a little zest to your outfit, pair your bold top with a solid high waisted skirt.  More of a bohemian? Go for loose and flowly; perfect for your active lifestyle. Check out some of my top choices for summer crops and click on their image for more info….You might be more into it than you think!

Call it intuition, call it dumb luck, whatever it is, I have stumbled upon a recycled fashion trend for your summer in the sun!  The ever psychedelic TIE-DYE.  I bet you didn’t expect that one!  Truthfully, I was wearing a tie dye t-shirt when I came to this conclusion, but hey, I’d like to think that I came up with it all my own! Not only is Tie-Dye by nature unrestricted and free, but it’s just plain fun! With so many possibilities of color combinations and designs, no one Tie-Dye  item is the same. Check out the goodies I found:

One Dress, Two Dress


Usually when I find the base inspiration for my vintage outfit creations I know exactly what I want to do with them.  But, when I stumbled across this amazing 1950/60’s wiggle dress I was completely stumped. One side of my brain was screaming PUNK! while the other CLASSY! This dress is so versatile (as you will come to find out!) and to state it plainly, presents to many styling options! Which is great when you think about it.  Buy one dress, get multiple outfits! So, going with that, I decided not to torture myself any longer and do both Punk and Classy.  And, as you can see, I had so much fun! Check out what I came up with:

(What would you do with this dress?)

I am absolutely in LOVE with this 50’s/60’s Vintage Peach Cocktail Dress from RococoVintage!  It’s so amazingly unusual!  Clean, simple lines with an adorable cap sleeve in front and then in back, a dramatic plunging back with dramatic waterfall ruffles. This dress will elicit stares of lust and longing wherever you tread! Perfect for upscale cocktail parties, for weddings, for romantic (and sultry) evenings out, or for any other especially special event. Unique, daring, and truly darling all at once!

I am ALWAYS on the search for a pair of good Roper Boots.  Especially ones that are actually in my size! Which, is extremely hard.  There are plenty of 9’s, 10’s, even 8’s, but when it comes to 7/7.5 FORGET IT! It’s like finding a needle in a haystack! HOWEVER, last night I got lucky when I stumbled on these 7 1/2 Classic Vintage Black Roper Boots from GrannysBootery (Love that shop name!). It’s the small things that make my heart flutter! These no fuss, straight up plain old roper boots are what I consider a “wardrobe essential.” Tim Gunn would probably argue with me, but these would be my staple and I would wear them with EVERYTHING. In great condition, you’re search (or mine if you’re not quick!) is over if you’re on the look for one of these beauties!

Favorite feature on this Vintage Elastic Belt from LarkVintage? The butterfly clasp! It’s so adorable and unique. Usually when I am looking for belts on Etsy, especially black ones, I get a lot of studded leather belts or woven belts, which I love, but I was looking for a belt that was different and not indicative of the accessories I usually feature with outfits.  And that’s exactly what I thought when I saw this vintage beauty. It’s charming, eclectic and actually puts a smile on your face when you see it.  It could go punk or classy and you don’t have to worry about it wearing down because it is elastic! Now that I think about it, I have a friend who LOVES butterflies and she would be head over heels over this!

Besides my love of owls, antique keys and Polaroids, I adore long chain necklaces with wing pendants.  I know, it sounds odd and I can’t explain, I just know I love it.  Although, now that I think about it, it might have something to do with the fact that I loved studying Ancient Roman/Greek history and their mythology in school and when I see wings I always associate it with Pegasus….. Ok, that was probably more information than you ever needed to know about me and why I love wing necklaces! More about the actual necklace: It is a Silver Angel Wing Long Chain Pendant by ZaraTaylor, a jewelry maker on Etsy (who I will be doing an interview with and posting soon!).  It comes with no clasp as it is long enough to go over your head, which I prefer! It just makes it easier when you’re getting dressed! Perfect for any boho or rocker outfit!

1940s + Suede + Pumps = Vintage Treasure.  That would be the best word to describe these leather soled Vintage 1940s Pumps in buttery soft chocolate brown suede from RococoVintage. An absolute Treasure.  The seller describes them better than I can! Here’s what she says: This classic pair of pumps from the 1940s are just breathtaking — they are some of the most perfect shoes from this era that I have ever seen! In a deliciously rich shade of chocolate brown, these shoes will provide the finishing touch to a whole variety of outfits, while the metal taps on the heels will create the most satisfyingly audible sound as you walk and dance! Absolutely wonderful, and in just shy of pristine condition! This beautiful designer shoes were made over 60 years ago and are in phenomenal condition — they are truly a treasure and very rare!!

So, I had to go Handmade on this belt.  I was looking for something super specific because I knew I wanted a bow belt to tie together an adorable outfit perfect for work or a classy night out.  This Soft Leather Bow by ManoBello fit that bill.  It’s simple, easy and versatile.  It’s not to “kidish” and won’t make your perfectly pink ensemble match your 5 year old niece’s favorite dress! And it’s not so obnoxious that it takes away from the outfit.  It’s just right.

This Freshwater Pearl Necklace by VirginiaGeigerJewels is labeled as a “Wedding Necklace,” BUT I think they can be worn with either your new “Pretty in Pink” outfit or any one of your fun, girly ensembles.  I appreciate the spaces between the pearls, giving it a lighter, more romantic appearance rather than the heavy or bulky look that sometimes full pearl necklaces can have.  And the small gold leaf just adds to the charm of the handmade necklace.  Here’s what the seller says: This lovely golden flower pendant is wire wrapped off center with large freshwater pearls and is completed with a delicate gold fill chain. Also available is silver!

Stripes Are The New Black!


So, I was poking around Facebook a few weeks ago and came across a post from one of my fashion buddies that I found to be rather interesting.  Apparently, and I totally missed the boat on this one, VERTICAL stripes are in! NOT horizontal, VERTICAL. Who would’ve guessed it, right? I was not prepared for that one at all.  Of course I remained a bit skeptical as I hadn’t yet seen any evidence to support this fashion prediction, BUT the MINUTE I went shopping I was attacked by stripe fever! They were everywhere! How I didn’t know about this before, I have no idea.  Maybe it is because I’m not really a stripes person.  But, fashion is fashion and it is my job to keep you not only informed, but to find fabulous vintage pieces for the fashion present.  Kudos to you, Cara Bloom of Me So Savvy for bringing this style to my attention!

The Vintage God of a Dot Com World


So, I know I have been SUPER lazy with my posting lately and I feel SUPER bad! It’s the wedding! I’m telling you the truth! It’s sucking all the spare time out of my life! Which, while I am enjoying all the painstaking planning of minuet details, I miss being able to sit down in front of my computer and share all my favorite vintage finds with you guys. So, until I get my time back I’m going to make mini posts. Short, sweet and to the point! Hope you still enjoy them as much and I promise to get back to my usual vintage self after my little fiasco is over!

But, back to the actual post! I was shuffling through my favorite online vintage shop, Thrifted and Modern, and I was once again amazed at their vintage selection. They offer so much in the way of eclectic and one of a kind vintage accessories and clothing. I’m sure as you can guess from the post title, I consider them the PREMIER shop of the vintage net and if I was rich I would be spending most of my funds here! Every item stands out, has a distinct personality and is definitive of the girl who picks it up. Absolutely special this store is; taking the time, the care, and the effort to only pick those items which define their store. A bit about them: Thrifted and Modern is an online vintage and independent designer women’s apparel retailer based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

What the Seller Says:

Extremely rare vintage EVA platform pumps with twotone patterned snakeskin upper and OH-SO-HIGH heels. The platform measures almost one inch! Very high quality shoes as you can see from the insoles – all leather and very well made.

Vintage 50s/60s Mod
Lucite Bracelet

What the Seller Says:

Outstanding vintage lucite spiral bracelet, 1950s – 1970s. Tapering, thick amber brown lucite was molded into a modernist abstract sculpture for the wrist.
Beginning with an end 3/4″ wide, the lucite wraps about two-and-a-half times around the wrist, narrowing to just over 1/4.” The vintage lucite is about 1/4″ thick. About 2-9/16″ x 2-1/2.”
The amber spiral truly is wearable art, and an abstract modernist sculpture that probably made its way down the runway.
Unusual and rare, and in very good pre-owned and used condition, with no cracks, no chips, no stress fractures like you can find in old lucite.
Modernist barbaric splendor, a vintage treasure.

The “Jenny” Jacket


Sometimes to get a little inspiration for my weekly posts I “window shop” my favorite online vintage stores.  Usually after looking through a couple of them I begin to form loose ideas about what I want to write about.  And last week when I reverted to this in order to avoid an oncoming writer’s block I stumbled across a fabulous trend for winter. Now it may be just pure coincidence that my fave shops were carrying similar things OR like the southwestern prints post, it could be that this vintage 70s trend is making a come back. (BTW I was out shopping last week and I saw southwestern prints everywhere! I was so proud of myself!)

So, what is this item that I am so elated about?  I’m sure you’ve already been able to guess, but it’s a suede 70s jacket.  BUT not just ANY suede 70s jacket..the “Jenny” Jacket (as I’ve so cleverly coined it!). “Jenny” coming from one of my fave movies “Forrest Gump” where her hippie character is seen on more than one occasion sporting a suede brown maxi jacket with fur trim.   Anytime I see this certain type of jacket I think of Jenny and her 70s hippie self!  So, you can imagine how many times my brain processed this thought enough to make me want to dedicate a whole post to it! I desperately hope the “Jenny” jacket is coming back.  It’s such a sleek style.  Tight fitted with voluminous fur framing the face, smooth suede or leather toasting your body and (in some cases) a wrap around belt to cinch at your waist.  Just thinking about what I have in my wardrobe to go with this statement piece fills me with childish giddy excitement! I might have to get one even if it’s not back in style!  And it might have to be one of these amazing “Jenny” jackets I found among some of my fave sellers:

Check out these FABULOUS “Jenny” Jackets!

Studs and Lace with a Side of Rock and Roll…


I’m finding it unbearably hard not to purchase every item in the outfit I have created for you dear readers.  It’s actually hard for me to look at it because I so desperately want to sport it!  It’s like one of those times when you buy your favorite fashion magazine and as you scan each stylish page after the other you undoubtedly find those pieces that your heart just beats for.  It almost feels criminal not to desire them! So for fear that you will empty out your bank account in one swoop you toss the magazine to the farthest reaches of your apartment where you won’t be able to catch even the slightest glimmer of it.  “Out of sight, out of mind” becomes your motto as you wait for recycling day to come along.  (I know someone just gasped here at  the mention of recycling magazines that consists of such “bibles” of Vogue and Elle.  It’s okay you can keep them.  I do!)  We have all had our moments and I believe, for me, this is one of them!  Check out the outfit that I am trying to convince myself I can live without!

I am loving this Vintage 70s Taupe Crochet Mini Dress from MamaStoneVintage.   This type of dress is my ultimate favorite.  It’s quintessential Boho:  simple, light and easy.  And because of its simplicity, this dress can also be easily manipulated to fit any style.  Feeling a little dainty one day?  Pair this cut- out knit dress with a fitted jacket and your favorite pumps.  Feeling a little punky the next? Pair with leather jacket and Jeffrey Campbell platforms and you’ll be set.  Whatever the look you can be sure that you will be turning heads in this lovely piece of vintage! (Oh yeah, don’t you just love the sleeves?  So relaxed!)

Talk about avante garde!  How awesome is this Vintage 80s Draped Wool Maxi Jacket from MintMallStore? I LOVE the hood!  It’s so voluptuous and mysterious.  The whole jacket holds a bit of mystery to it; hiding whatever lays beneath its black blanket of slouched fabric.  (Feeling like a secret agent now?) Simple as it may be with its over sized cloaked hood, long sleeves and buttoned pockets there’s no end to the possibilities.  Like the dress in its shade this versatile jacket can be worn with the frilliest of dresses or the spikiest of shoes, your choice.  It’s a definite statement piece, for sure.  Plus, the fact that it’s fully lined and made of wool ensures that you will stay toasty warm on the chilliest of days.

If there is one thing that is essential to my fall/winter wardrobe it is the legging.  I cannot even begin to tell you how many leggings I have in my possession as of right now b/c my cheeks would turn bright red from embarrassment.  What can I say? They’re easy, comfortable (especially on those days when you’re not exactly fitting into your jeans if you know what I mean), match with everything and come in a multitude of colors and designs.  Why wouldn’t you love them?  Slap on a favorite dress or baggy sweater, pop on some bright tights overlaid with a sheer patterned one, zip up your favorite boots, throw on your vintage leather jacket and you’re good to go!  That took all of 7 secs and you look killer!  Have I convinced you yet?  Well if I have then you need to check out these AWESOME vintage 80s black shredded rocker leggings from HoneyMoonMuse.  So sick! Love that hard rocker look to them! These would be the perfect pair of leggings (especially when it gets colder) to put a solid colored legging underneath.  Such an interesting look!

The Roper Boot.  A definite choice favorite of mine among boots.  The worn leather, the bent fringe,  the skinny laces that go all the way up to your ankles combine together to form THE absolute style.  If it has hand punched studs? Even better. Check out these Vintage Studded Roper Boots from MetropolisNYCVintage.  They are the culmination of everything I love in a roper boot.  They’re vintage number one!  But they carry with them a tangible weight meaning when you put them on a certain persona takes over.  You walk tall.  You walk proud.  You stomp when you step and you apologize for nothing. You are complete.  And besides making you feel like the dot on an exclamation point, they’re also comfortable.  With every step you take you feel the worn leather mutate to fit the curves of your ankle.  Your toes able to take a relaxing vacation due to the unique boat shape of the boot.  MMMM…I could wear these with everything! Besides, they’re just awesome and go with any look!

MetrolpolisNYCVintage you do not disappoint! Not only do you have amazing studded boots, but you have the bags to match! Check out this rock inspired Vintage hand STUDDED leather COACH bag! Do you not swoon over it?  They go perfectly with the awesome roper boots we found! And when have you ever found yourself in a situation when you found matching shoes and bag and not been able to purchase both?  Ugh! You tug at my heart strings Metro!  You know I can’t resist the studding, but to cover a stellar vintage coach bag in them is just pure evil! You know I can’t resist!  Readers! Help! I am in dire need of stud intervention!  This bag may have just done me in!
