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 Curated Collection of Vintage Turbans

with one comment

Modern men and women are privileged to have access to an infinite variety of hair products to manipulate sad tresses into any imaginable shape. But our brave predecessors had far fewer options. Back then, a bad hair day could ruin your week. Back then, fashion was the only cure for deadly hair. Hats, snoods, beanies, scarves, buckets (in a pinch), and yes…turbans.

We have for you this week an expertly curated collection of sensational vintage turbans, all available right now from various sellers on eBay and etsy. Click on each image below to see the actual listing.

And if you’re thinking, “there’s no way I could ever pull off a vintage turban!” you’re most likely correct. Only those who fully appreciate the exalted turban deserve to wear one. So march on, sister. March on.

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.

A Little Biased

leave a comment »

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.
