  • It's Time to Let Go...

    Have you ever had a bridesmaid dress that you thought, "I can shorten it and wear it again!" If so, I'm sure that it is still in the back of your closet, collecting dust. How about that prom dress? Attention: You will probably NEVER wear them again.

    To keep your closet looking from like it's straight out of the movie 27 Dresses, check out the website www.donatemydress.org. Donate My Dress encourages girls to donate their prom and special occasion dresses to others who really need them. It's the first national network to bring together local dress drive organizations across the U.S. Once you've had your dream night in your dress, you can give another girl hers! It's so easy, too. You just look up the closest place to you to drop off your used gown, and voila--someone else will soon have a chance to feel as beautiful as you did in your gown.

  • How To: Throw A Mad Men Party

    This past weekend one of my friends threw a "Mad Men" themed birthday party. Everyone had to dress up in their best 1960's duds and the hostess served authentic, pre-hippie martinis and appetizers. It was such fun I wanted to share with everyone how to throw your very own 1960's Martini Party (otherwise known as a "Mad Men" party if you're looking for something catchy to write on the Evite).
    Unique Vintage carries some of the most varied selections of buttoned-up 1960's style dresses, so naturally when choosing my costume I turned to them. Below are a few tips to help you achieve the look of the women of "Mad Men" at your own party.  Each has their own unique style, while staying true to the constructed 1960's aesthetic across the board.
    BETTY
    Betty is the most girly. Pastels, florals, and light fabrics dominate her wardrobe. Her silhouette is usually a cinched waist and a full skirt with a form fitting - but never revealing - top. Betty's look is completed with perfectly coiffed hair and make-up, cute but sensible heels and minimal jewelry.
    PEGGY
    Peggy is no-nonsense career woman, and her style reflects that. Checked prints, simple color combinations such as black and white or cream and red and and simple accessories define her style. To finalize your Peggy costume, comb hair back into a ponytail, then add a small circle hat and wrist-length gloves.
    JOAN
    Joan is ambitious and not shy about getting what she wants. As the most voluptuous of the three women, her hourglass figure is emphasized with pulled in waists, solid color schemes and heavy fabrics such as wool and tweed. A long gold chain, power heels, a sweep of red lipstick and a chignon complete Joan's signature style.

    Eat Like a "Mad (Wo)Man"
    Don't forget no Martini Party would be complete without strong cocktails, mayo-filled appetizers and everyone's favorite retro-dessert, a Jell-O mold!  Here are some of my favorite throwback appetizers...

  • Bring On the Weather

    Here are Unique Vintage headquarters in Burbank, CA, we're experiencing the season's first real rainfall...and we're loving it! There's nothing better than curling up on a cold, rainy day with big cup of cocoa and a good movie...except maybe a brand new winter coat and a pair of killer boots!

    To commemorate this once in a blue-moon rainfall (local forecast says it's back to 90 degrees by Sunday!), we've put together some rainy day essentials that'll keep you fashionably dry and oh so cute.

  • Turn Up the Volume On Your Outfit

    When it comes to the art of getting dressed, clothes are obviously important. Picking out the right outfit can be frustrating and time consuming. Does it look good? Is it flattering? But there's another item that often gets overlooked...ACCESSORIES!

    There's nothing worse than putting on my favorite outfit, only to look in the mirror and feel boring! Have you ever felt that way? But with the right accessories, it's actually simple to turn something plain into insane-ly fabulous!

    Here are some of my favorite Unique Vintage items to help complete a look:

     Feathers and hair pins, so fun! It's an easy way to add a little flare to your hair.

    Jewelry, can liven up any outfit. You don't have to go overboard and wear every piece of jewelry you own. One bold ring or necklace can do the trick.

    With the weather turning crisp, scarves are so cozy nowadays and can make a statement with a basic outfit.

    And what girl doesn't like a new handbag. Purses can make or break an outfit, in my opinion! Here are some of my faves:

    This red bag will give your outfit just the right amount of pop:

    This Koret leopard clutch adds instant, effortless chic!

    Happy shopping!

  • THINK PINK

    October 1st marks the first day of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to statistics, there will be 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer  in 2011. One in 8 women will be diagnosed in the U.S. It is a real and upsetting statistic. You will most likely have a family member or friend who will get breast cancer at some point in your life. My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor and it wasn't until we found out that she had cancer, that we decided to become educated.

    This month, however, isn't a time to be sad. It is a time to empower women to take control of their health and become educated about breast cancer. Here are some basic breast health steps from the Susan G. Komen website:

    * Know your family health history

    *Have a mammogram every year starting at the age of 40

    *Have a clinical breast exam at LEAST every 3 years starting at 20

    *Self Exams- know how your breast look and feel and report changes to your doctor right away

    Most insurance companies cover mammograms and some places such as a local health departments offer screenings at a low cost or for free. Here is a link for centers: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfMQSA/mqsa.cfm

    Early detection and screening is key to lowering the risk of dying from breast cancer. Screenings can find cancer early on and most cases, it is treatable. Let's stand up and support breast cancer awareness, and most of all, find a CURE!
