Surprise!!

21 Jul

Saw this adorable little Jana vintage clutch on eBay a couple of weeks ago and loved it, but didn’t bid on it. Chris just surprised me with a box and told me he had a surprise for me. It was the clutch!!!!

I watched Animal House last night, for the first time in years. It was one of my favorite movies in high school and watching it brought back a great amount of nostalgia. Even though it’s a movie about college, my memories were high school. I made my friends watch it a ridiculous amount of times.

One thing I loved last night was watching the way things were in the 60s, the heyday of Greek life. The cars they drove, the music that played on the old school jukebox in the Delta Tau Chi house, the clothes they wore.

There’s really no point to this post other than to reminisce. Most of all, it was nice to hear the greeting “Hi, I’m Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman, damn glad to meet ya.”

Fashionably On Time

The other day I came across these on Etsy and instantly loved them! Vintage clockwork made into cufflinks. They would add a fun, quirky touch to a tuxedo tunic paired with leggings and boots or make a cool gift for a guy.

Seeing Red (and Peach… and Purple)

17 Jul

Lately I’ve been drawn to reds and peaches and pinks and purples in clothes.

 All of these are vintage, so that automatically makes them really awesome to begin with.  The skirt was taken from eBay and the orange, grey and white day dress taken from vintagetrends.com.  The other 3 were listed on Modcloth.com under the Vintage clothes.  I love the soft, feminine look of these items.

Some other (modern) looks that I love that have a vintage-y feel to them (all taken from Modcloth.com):

That’s Amore

I found these leather and glass decanters at an estate sale last week.  I kind of went crazy and bought 4 of them, but I just couldn’t help myself.  They make such a great display!

Decided that 4 was probably a little much so I’m just keeping this one below.  To bid on the others, visit my eBay page.
