Pretty Dresses




Just a few favorites from our latest update over at our Etsy shop. I know it's still snowy in most of the country but here in Portland it feels like Spring! We're having sunny days and I can't help but start to buy cute cotton pieces for the shop. I even marked down scarves, hats and gloves to 50% off!

Fifty Fabulous Frocks


It's finally here, Fifty Fabulous Frocks- the trunk show we're hosting here at the shop with Sue Eggen! She sent the dresses ahead of time so for the past week I've been drooling over each gorgeous piece and getting so excited to share them with you on Saturday.

Besides 50 vintage dresses to try on and take home, we'll be serving champagne and chocolates from Only Child Chocolate. The event starts at 5pm and goes until 9. We will have the dresses in the shop all day Saturday but they will not be available to try on or purchase until the event starts.

Feel free to RSVP here and check out our Instagram for peeks at the dresses. I've been using the hashtag #50fabfrocks.

The Novelty Theory.




We have a sweet collection of novelty print cotton skirts in the shop right now. Skirts are such an easy way to wear vintage, you can pair them with a simple cardigan or even a tucked in tshirt. These are all shown with crinolines for a authentic 50s look but you can modernize them by wearing them without one.

These can be purchased through our Etsy shop here.

Also a quick reminder about our trunk show with Sue Eggen, Fifty Fabulous Frocks, next Saturday, February 7th from 5-9pm. The invite will all the info can be found here and I will be adding photos of the dresses there next week.

Vintage Inspiration: 1950's Blue






The wonderful thing about vintage is how timeless most of it is, especially items from the 1950s. A dress that nips in at your waist and is tailored to hug your curves, is never going to go out of style. Add to that the always classic color blue and you have a dress that looks like it was made yesterday (except it will last you a lifetime and someone was paid a living wage to make it!). I'm ready for the a new year filled with more classic dresses (in a variety of colors!).

I also want to mention our upcoming trunk show with Sue Eggen. You can find out more info here and I will do a blog post the week of the event with more photos and information!
