Featured Seller: Poppycock Vintage

with one comment

The only thing we here at This Week’s Look adore more than vintage hats is a vintage hat sale. Poppycock Vintage on etsy is currently testing our post-holiday spending willpower with a fantastic sale through December 31. They have an incredible selection of vintage chapeaux, so reasonably priced, we may have no choice but to pawn all of the Christmas presents we received in order to buy them all.

This week, we have assembled for you a selection of our favorites from Poppycock’s etsy storefront, all on sale right now. Click on each image below to see the individual listing, and follow Poppycock on Facebook for regular sale announcements.

This Week’s Look is back from summer vacation and the fall/winter shopping is already in progress. In preparation for the imminent seasonal shift, earlier this summer we scored a couple pairs of vintage, leather driving gloves and a 1970s caramel leather blazer at cheap heatwave prices. This jacket will probably top a black and white striped, long-sleeved, crew neck t-shirt and skinny jeans. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. There’s a heat wave presently plaguing us here in southern California, so we’re going to have to put those treasures on hold until further notice.

The rest of you, however, are already picking up on the first signs of autumn. Instagram is full of snapshots featuring falling orange leaves and light jackets. For you, this week we have curated a collection of vintage leather blazers, as seen on etsy and eBay. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

Lingerie by I.D. Sarrieri

with one comment

I recently discovered lingerie by I.D. Sarrieri and am in love nearly every piece in the collection. There’s some retro pinup styles but without being too kitschy. There are some nice classics too. Below are a few of my favorite pieces. Click on each image below to see the the listing. Also, check out the “outlet” tab on their website for some great prices.

From the “Ava” collection, a long-sleeved Chantilly lace bodysuit.

Bleumarine silk satin stretched over demi-cups trimmed in Chantilly lace. Removable straps.

Midnight Chantilly lace boxers with bleumarine trim.

High waist brief with detachable garters in champagne or black.

An embroidered leather bra that somehow comes off sweet and not fetish. Hidden wire and stretch silk satin.

Chartreuse Set

with one comment

Marilyn Monroe was buried in chartreuse, the color of her favorite Pucci dress. Chartreuse is a tricky color. It’s somewhere between green and yellow and I’m never quite sure if I love it or hate it. But today I am enamored with it because I found this unusual, vintage suede purse with matching gloves, both wrapped in brown leather trim. $50 on eBay. Click on the images below to see the listing.

Have a Cowl

with 6 comments

Scarves are great, but sometimes a girl (or a guy) needs a cowl. Although, when men wear them I think they’re called gaiters.

Whatever you call them, I prefer tightly crocheted or knitted neck warmers with functional buttons because they offer more flexibility; you can go for a prim buttoned up look, a partially buttoned open collar look, or let it hang loosely down your shoulders like a capelet. Most cowls are also easy to stash in your purse or bag when not in use (depending on the size of your bag that is). One more thing, if you’re the fashionable type, definitely stay away from fleece cowls. Unless you’re going for that extreme camping look.

The absolute best place to find original, handmade cowls is etsy of course. Below are some of my favorites (there’s even one for dogs). Click on each image to see the listing.

Wool and acrylic blend gaiter in a warm curry spice. Made by gypseatree on etsy. $37. Other colors available by request.

The “Elizabeth I” crocheted neck ruff in mustard made by DesiredCrochet on etsy. $17.

Here’s a unisex, hand knitted acrylic cowl made by KYSAA on etsy. $20.

Dogs get chilly too! The Brown Barker here is a custom neck warmer/hood for dogs, made-to-order by HippiePups on etsy. $30.

Recycled, buttery soft leather and angora neck warmer from MacolieMonster on etsy. $36.

Brown, green and black ruffled acrylic scarf from Periay on etsy. $18.

Cranberry wool-blend cowl with functional buttons, handmade by WindyCityKnits on etsy. $30.

Mary Poppins would be proud to sport this ruffly cowl adorned with vintage buttons, made by CheshireFarm on etsy. $15.

Super-chunky, cable knit neck warmer made by LaimaShop on etsy. $68.

A beautifully simple and inexpensive teal cowl with vintage seashell button. Made by Witherwood on etsy. $9.

OK, I know I said no fleece, but the fleece is hidden on the inside here so it’s totally acceptable. Upcycled plaid neck warmer from OhMaudlinMe on etsy. $30.

Adjustable buttoned cowl made by Witherwood on etsy. $7.

Snuggly neck warmer reconstructed from a vintage faux mink coat, complete with black satin ties. Made by SewTrendy on etsy. $30.

Look at the versatility of this dark purple, crocheted cowl. The three functional buttons give you so many options. Made by TallentedCrafts on etsy. $12.

Perk up your drab winter with this sunshiny yellow neck warmer with orange toggle button by akphotoncrafts on etsy. $10.

Another highly versatile cowl made by wearaddiction on etsy. $17.50.

OK, so maybe you’re not ready to commit to a cowl. Here’s one that’s a little bit cowl, a little bit scarf, complete with wood buttons. Made by FrogSong on etsy. $15.

100% cashmere, double-thick, brioche stitch, extra-tall cowl in steel blue. Made by kimbarelli on etsy. $49.95.

A striking caped cowl in 100% wool with wood toggle button. Made by lightist on etsy. $95.
