Sweater Season: Get Your 80's Sweater On!

Big Bold Colorful! Best describes the classic 80's sweater. The brighter, the zanier, the more abstract or novelty the pattern was the better. Bat wing sleeves, big and slouchy, off the shoulder, sometimes down to your knees. They were great fall into winter fashion wear and now they're back!

New Summer Finds: Caftans, Beach Totes & Color

Caftans are in, light airy, breezy on a hot day. I'm all for that. These are the pieces coming soon to the shop:

This is a heavier cotton batik print caftan, maxi length. Gorgeous print. I love the bottom. 

Very sheer psychedelic cotton beach pants, with a draw string tie. Go wild!

Bright purple rayon batik print caftan, mid length, light weight & very freeing. Great beach-to-part frock. 

 Below, these pieces are already posted: LOVE the American Tourister tote bag.

It isn't 100 degrees everywhere. On the left is a wool tartan plaid skirt, on the right aqua blue (!!) plaid in LINEN. Perfect for a lovely summer day. 

Beach totes! Large with a zipper so your sunscreen & goodies don't fall out in the sand. Love that. 

Large 90's eyeglasses in a deep reddish amber. Great condition. You can make them into prescription or sunglasses & still be unique. 

Enjoy! D, xo

Vintage scarves always in style

I LOVE vintage scarves. I can not pass them by. I can not leave them, even when they are a tad worn, a few too many pin holes. I adore them.

 Kelly green shamrock silk scarf by Echo.

I also wear them. Around my neck, in my hair, dangling from my tote bag. They add a little something, especially on days when I need a little lift or a good distraction.
Here are some of my new favorites for the shop.

Note: these beauties are in very good condition, have been gently hand washed, dried & lightly ironed. Love them!

 Modern paisley scarf by Echo

 70's French style satin foulard in polka dots!

60's mod purple & green floral neck scarf, shiny French styling. Love it. 

 Silk paisley scarf in golden amber & silvery gray. Hand rolled edges.

50's silk scarf, hand design coat of arms. Bold green & pink stripes!

 Vintage chiffon scarf in a crossword style, purple & pink.

 Exquisitely soft blue & pink florals. Liz Claiborne.

I will always have beautiful scarves in the shop. Drop by any time. :)
