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!

Eye Candy

Can we just drool for a moment over Alice + Olivia’s Spring 2012 presentation that debuted yesterday?

The brand is always applying vintage looking touches to their modern looks, but this season just hits it out of the park for us. Candy colored retro styles blend most of our favorite era’s for fashion – 20’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s – all into one collection. The shoes, the hats, the sunglasses! Neither Lise nor Katina are girly girls, but these pastels and florals are looking pretty tempting for this spring.

If you’re as inspired by these looks as we are and want a head-start on a couple of pieces to wear come spring, try searching Etsy for things like “1960s enamel brooch“, “bright geometric scarf” or “1970s floral pants“. And remember to keep an eye on our store too for similar pieces coming closer to spring (and of course relevant pieces for this season as well!)
