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.
Good morning our vintage loving, blog reading, buddies out there!
As we mentioned yesterday, Fall 2012 is on the runways right now, and as new fashion is always a fresh take on something from the past, there are plenty of heavily vintage inspired collections out there this season as well! We will share our favorites with you as we come across, them and today we’re dying to hear if you love the Anna Sui show as much as we do!
It’s the craziest mash-up of the 1960’s trends that literally make us go *eep*!
We hope you’re all having a nice, relaxing Sunday!
Over the weekend we often list a few vintage pieces in our shop that don’t really fit into whatever theme we might be planning at the time. If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll still get a heads up that there is something new to check out, but we rarely bother with them on the blog. This weekend, however, we’ve listed two pieces that we really wanted to keep for ourselves! We love them so much that we thought they deserved a little extra attention…
As much as I love shopping for vintage clothing (The history! The authenticity!), I often get just as excited about seeing the vintage inspired clothing that is being made now. This fall sixties styles were all over the runways and, being one of my favorite decades to stumble upon pieces from, I can’t tell you how much I adore what has been designed by Burberry Prorsum, Prada, Jil Sander, and so on. But of course none of those pretties really fit my budget or my lifestyle – which is why I am so psyched about some of the more affordable collections coming out this season! Banana Republic has their amazing Mad Men collection; Anthropologie is featuring some more quirky and loosely 60’s inspired designs. But noticing H & M’s “Modern Vintage” selection today truly made me smile. Take a look, and tell me you’re not in love!
Finally! We are very happy to announce that our very first items have been listed in our shop this morning! Please take a look – we would love to hear which items catch your eye! And don’t worry – there is more where that came from! We will be listing more items daily.
