We Loves – Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012

We found another line for Fall 2012 that screams vintage inspired at us in the best of ways. Burberry Prorsum is, honestly, one of our favorite lines every season. The parallels between London and Seattle when it comes to weather and fashion are very similar, and the Burberry line often speaks to our constant want for sensible articles of clothing without sacrificing style.

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!

We had fun putting together our week of white accessories for Spring, for you! Now that everything is live in our shop, head on over to see the full info on each of them!

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.

Silver Earrings

We know we said we would only be announcing our listings by Facebook this week, but this one deserves it’s own post.

This pair of earrings is one of those things that one of us falls in love with right away and wants to keep for ourselves, but in the end it turns out that it’s too wonderful not to share!

Xochi Earrings

The perfectly imperfect little sterling screw-backs are from the 1930’s-1940’s and were handcrafted in Mexico.

Xochi Earrings

We found them in the house of a woman who apparently had an old steamer trunk in her attic filled with items from the era. She had great taste, and we were sad to have to leave behind a number of lovely pieces of jewelry, and unique vintage housewares. We actually found our near-perfect condition “Madison” Coat in the same house. It’s amazing to us that someone could have a trunk full of treasures in their house, lovingly stored for so long. Were they forgotten about? Were they being saved for someone, or just for some special day? How long ago had they been packed up neatly and left on their own?

There is no way we can know the history behind such things, but we are certainly thankful to the woman who valued them enough to pack them away for us to enjoy years later.

You can view our “Xochi” earrings in our shop today.
