We’ve been waiting a couple of weeks to do this window for you all. The reason being is that we didn’t have a 3rd item in the right blue to make it work until that Marilyn dress on the right came in. And then, voilà- display complete. Hope you like it as much as we do!

We are happy with how this black and cream window turned out. It’s sweeter than an Oreo, in our opinion. And it’s a real mashup of old and new. Can you tell what’s vintage from contemporary? We hope not, as good fashion should always transcend time. Mix and match new and old this autumn to cut an original look that keeps ’em guessing.

We’re back in the black with some heavy hitters this week. We love pairing vintage accessories with contemporary designer clothes! It really changes up the look while giving it a personalized twist that’s unique. Fall is soon approaching, like it or not… So when you’re switching over to your warmer wardrobe why not see if you can jazz it up with some vintage baubles? We have many fun pieces dating all the way back to Victorian times (our current fav era!!). You may just find a treasure that puts some pep in your step.
