I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

leave a comment »

This week we found an iconic 1960s “Century of Boston” mod cage dress on etsy. This would look amazing with a nude bodysuit underneath, or if you have the abs to pull it off, just a bandeau bra as pictured. It reminds me of this Courrèges window dress from the late 1960s (first picture). Click on the second and third images below to see the seller’s etsy listing.

Featured Seller: Vintage Eyewear

Warby Parker has done a lot for people that are both visually impaired and into vintage style. And their flat fee pricing (only $95 a pair) is quite revolutionary in the vision correction biz.  However, if you prefer authentic vintage frames as opposed to vintage-inspired frames, you can spend hours combing through junk on eBay and etsy or you can visit one of our favorite sources for optical quality vintage frames, Thayer Eyewear.

Thayer specializes in carefully curated 1950s cat eye glasses, 1960s squared zyl, rhinestone and embellished frames, high quality American and European frames from the 1800s to the 1990s, as well as dead stock ready-to-wear sunglasses. While some of Thayer’s stock is used, they also carry tons of dead stock/never worn frames, many of which are priced under $100.

Below are some of our favorite vintage frames as seen on Thayer Eyewear’s etsy storefront this week. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

Pillow Talk

This week we found a wonderful seller on etsy, Lil & Gaines, who makes the most beautiful pillow covers. The pillow cover below, fashioned from a Robert Allen Khanjali designed ikat fabric, is currently gracing my new sectional and I’m so pleased with the quality that I plan to order another.
