Edwardian Era Fashion

Good morning! Did you have a good weekend? Score any estate sale finds perhaps?!

Just one-half of Lise + Katina here today, “Lise” if you will. As you might have noticed from our About page, the history and personal stories behind the vintage pieces that we stock are what drives me.  Whenever possible I like to know who owned our vintage loves and what significance they had to that person – but even if I don’t have a link to the original owner, I often do quite a bit of research about the era in which the piece was made. History shapes fashion more than we may sometimes realize, and there are plenty of stories to explain the reasoning behind dress cuts, popular colors, materials used, and so on. Fashion history is definitely something I can geek out over for hours at a time! :)

Take this brooch, for example. (Click the picture to view it in our shop, with more photos)

Art Deco Bakelite – Loves of the Week

Happy Friday to all of you vintage lovers out there!

This week we are bringing you a new regular blog segment that we call ‘Loves of the Week’. It’s easy to get addicted to browsing Etsy listings (seriously, we’re often up until midnight clickety-clicking and filling up our favorites list!), and we find so many gorgeous pieces that are too good not to share. Every Friday we will round up our favorite pieces within a theme.

We’re starting our first Loves of the Week with Art Deco style Bakelite. Please feel free to leave us a comment and tell us what you’d love to see in a future theme!

Spring Whites

Spring might not be in the air yet, but it is just around the corner, and our daydreams are definitely occupied with itty-bitty blooms and blue skies! We thought we’d try to get you in the mood too – with a week full of springtime accessories!

In selecting our pieces for this week we were inspired by the cheerful spring runway trends that feature shades of whites played up by pops of neon and bright pastels.
