Unisex Vintage Vests

with 2 comments

Welcome to part two of our two-part expose’ on vintage vests. As you may recall, part one skewed more toward our feminine demographic, with plans to showcase the masculine end of the vest range in part two. However, as we plowed eBay and etsy for vintage men’s vests and waistcoats, we began to see this as more of a unisex offering. Whatever your genitalia, this week we found something for everyone, including fans of “Back to the Future.” Click on each image below to see the seller’s listing.

A Little Biased

This would be an amazing wedding gown for the bride who wants a glamorous vintage look. And even more stunning is the current bid on eBay; only $56. The auction ends in two days. This is an original 1930s bias cut silk gown with train. The open back is incredible and this cut splendidly whittles the waist. Click on the images below to see the full listing.

Featured Seller: Nicholettes

with 2 comments

I apologize for my lengthy fashion blogging absence, but things got kind of heavy. My beloved brother Sean passed away suddenly at age 38, which is far too soon for anyone to leave, especially someone as amazing as him. When I left for D.C., and we still had hope that he would recover, I packed just enough to get me through a few days. Those days stretched into two weeks and I eventually found myself shopping for a dress to wear to his funeral.

And a vintage hat of course.

I want to express enormous gratitude to Nicholette Alexander, a wonderful seller on etsy who expedited the veiled hat below to me in D.C. so that I could have it in time for Sean’s funeral.

That said, “Nicholettes” (as she is known on etsy) is my featured seller this week. Similar to the one I purchased from her, Nicholettes has a number of stunning vintage hats (among other great vintage finds) available in her etsy shop right now, many of which come with free hat boxes!
