Vintage Shop Update | Holiday Soiree

This week’s vintage shop update, the Holiday Soiree Collection, features all the elegant, classic, and festive wears for all the parties you’ll be attending.

It’s snowing here in Portland at the moment, so that means the whole city is shutting down. Roads are closed, children are sledding on the street instead of at school, and we’re working from home. There’s a fire going in my fireplace and my partner is putting candy canes on our Christmas tree as snow falls outside and wind whistles around the house.

The holidays are here. I can’t stop repeating that in my head. They’re here! Finally! It truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. I love seeing red noses, everyone bundled up, and baking materials on the end of every isle.

It’s a time of the year about cheer, gathering, and getting all dolled up for a night out to celebrate the year, family, and love by sipping some bubbly champagne, what more can one ask for?

Vintage Shop Update | 1970s Folklore

bohominstrels-29This week’s shop arrival is inspired by being able to spend time outside in the warmer weather and the flowers blooming all around us (flowers are involved, always!). Many of our new arrivals have been very 70s folklore, pieces that make us want to prance around a meadow, play ukulele by the river, and lounge comfortably in cotton and floral prints.

Bianca Jagger | Vintage Style Muse

Bianca Jagger / Vintage Style Muse

I don’t really think Bianca Jagger needs any sort of introduction or explanation as to why she would be a style icon. It’s pretty OBVIOUS isn’t it?

Out of any vintage celebrity style icons, Bianca’s style is probably the closest to how I want my personal style to be. A mix of feminine, classic, ultra girlie, menswear, and wearer of hats! I do appreciate Bianca’s glamour. I sometimes think I could be more vintage glam, but I usually save my more glamorous looks for fashion related events in Portland.

Also, I’ve been told I resemble Bianca (on really good days I guess, haha!) and that’s A-OK by me because I think she is super gorgeous. My mom and her actually look more alike I think!
