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.

Sweater Vest Revival

with 4 comments

It’s quite a shame that the sweater vest inherited such a terrible reputation, thanks in part to the likes of Rick Santorum and other conservative, white dudes.

Which brings us to this week’s assignment, to reinvigorate the sweater vest’s status among the proletariat, banishing all preconceived notions regarding this controversial, yet versatile and potentially fashion-forward basic.

This week, we are asking our understandably skeptical readers to discard their prejudices and entertain the sweater vest as we envision it for women: a mildly androgynous and wildly daring accoutrement. Preferably belted, to accentuate the waist, and layered over a crisp, buttoned up oxford or a sleek, monochromatic turtleneck. Accessorize an oxford with a vintage menswear tie for a preppy, business-y vibe. Or couple with a flowing maxi skirt for a 70s, Annie Hall feel. The ruffled ascot shirt paired with the Ralph Lauren vest below is absolutely inspired.

We have curated for you below a collection of the best sweater vests, all available on etsy and eBay right now, and all chosen for their ability to usher in a new era of the sweater vest. Click on each image below to see the seller’s listing.

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.
