Bottoms Up! It’s National Mint Julep Day

 

Whether you live in California or Louisiana, today is the day to enjoy a little Southern hospitality at its best; May 30th is National Mint Julep Day, an annual “holiday” created solely to celebrate one of America’s most beloved beverages. Ahem, I’ll drink to that.

Made with just a few simple ingredients-fresh mint, water, sugar and bourbon whiskey (if you’re of age)-mint juleps are synonymous with the Kentucky Derby and perfect for sipping on a hot, sunny day. Here’s to donning your best big-brimmed hat while mixing up a pitcher of juleps. Cheers!

Jenna’s “Unique” Customer Story

 
I purchased my wedding dress and bridesmaid’s dresses from Unique Vintage in 2009.
I absolutely love everything about these dresses!
  
I did shorten the bridesmaid’s dresses, because my family is a little on the short side. Some of the girls added their own special touches to the tops,
but this story is about my wedding dress ;-).
My dress and I have been through a lot.
I walked down the aisle with it and I’ve “trashed” it twice since then on my anniversary. But, guess what? My dress is still alive!
My dress and I have been through a lot.  I walked down the aisle with it and I’ve “trashed” it twice since then on my anniversary. But, guess what? My dress is still alive!  It’s been through water, mud and colored bubbles, and somehow is still white and gorgeous!
This month is my third year anniversary and I’m taking my dress to the San Diego beaches.  My Unique Vintage dress is indestructible and I couldn’t be happier! xo, Jenna

Lexi’s “Unique” Customer Story

 
My husband is a Marine and was fixing to deploy, so we decided to elope.

One day, I was searching the web and found your website. When I was scrolling the dresses I found the “ONE” and ordered it immediately. It was the most beautiful dress I had ever seen. It complemented his dress blues perfectly.

I still have it and I plan on wearing it again when we renew our vows on our 8th wedding anniversary. We are going on our 3rd year of marriage right now. I want to say thank you for helping make my day wonderful.

 

Best, Lexi Shipton

P.S.:  I received so many compliments on my dress….and everyone at the wedding place LOVED it!!
