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.

Winter’s Veil

This Week’s Look is still on holiday but we couldn’t resist a quick post for our voracious readers. Anyway, fashion never really takes a vacation, now does it? Or perhaps it does. How else can you explain resort wear?

Now that we have washed our hands of all that holiday hullabaloo we can start getting serious about spring 2012. As we mentioned last year, pleats and pastels and lace will be everywhere come pollen season and I can barely contain the urge to dust off my canary yellow veiled fascinator for brunch. Oh I almost forgot! I now have one in lavender too! Still, we are sensitive to the fact that some of you have been too busy cramming turkey and egg nog down your gullet to shop for vintage accessories. That’s why we’re here, to help you out of the winter doldrums and into something bright and light for spring. To that end, we searched etsy this week to find you some of the prettiest spring-inspired vintage toppers around. Click on each image below to see the actual 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!
