Cold December

We’ve been on a bit of a hiatus lately and with the holidays just around the corner we’ve been rushing around trying to find the perfect winter gifts. We’ve been eye-ing some of these lovely coats:

We wonder, what would happen if you combined all our favorite coats for the season into one incredibly timeless piece that embodied everything we’ve been searching for?

Lilli Ann Knit Sailor Mod Coat

You would end up with our favorite find of the season, Jacqueline. She is the perfect 1960’s Mod coat by designer Lilli Ann Knits. We fell in love and know you will too! You can visit her in our shop, here!

Now, usually in our “Loves for Less” posts we like to show you a vintage item that costs less than comparable new ones, but this piece is a bit different. The deal this time comes from our own price of this near perfect vintage coat compared to other similar ones from the same brand. As you can see from this Etsy search, we’re definitely giving you ours at a discount in hopes that it will find a deserving home with a lucky girl!

We’d love to hear – what vintage alternatives to modern styles are you in love with lately?

Scarf Tutorial 5 – Head Wrap Bow

Happy Friday! We have a cute scarf style to show you today, but I’m afraid our images for our tutorial just didn’t turn out how we wanted them to, (we swear we’re not just slacking off because it’s Friday!) so you’re going to have to settle for our explanation instead. Good thing it’s a simple one!

So, this is one more of our favorite styles, the head wrap with a bow:

Scarf Tutorial 1

It really is quite an effortless look to achieve. Simply fold a large square scarf into a triangle, and, placing the middle of the folded edge against your neck, wrap around your head, tying at your forehead. Tuck in the edges so it looks nice, then tie the ends into a bow, and position it at your forehead, or by your ear.

Waa laa! Easy and adorable!

We are absolutely in love with the scarf we used for this style – we encourage you to hop on over to Etsy so you can see the whole thing laid out flat. It’s amazing.

That concludes our scarf week! We hoped you enjoyed the pieces we chose, and the tutorials we gave you! We’ll have some more scarves for you next week, so keep an eye on our shop, or like us on Facebook to get the first word when we put up something new.
