  • Ladies in Red

    The fashion world is just a buzzin' after Sunday night’s showing of the 2011 Emmys. There was no shortage of glitz and glam as the women made their way down the red carpet. Speaking of red, whether you caught a couple of minutes or the full show, it was obviously the “it” color of the night. Some celebs were clearly channeling the Jessica Rabbit-burlesque style on the carpet, and absolutely sparkled in this gorgeous color. Along with bombshell bodies and simple jewelry, these ladies exemplified understated elegance. Here are some of our favorite red looks of the night along with our own "better priced" versions! -Emily Fogarty

  • Unique Vintage Recommends: Midnight in Paris

    There are few films that can capture the romanticism of Paris in such a modern, yet old world sense. The city of lights is not only the Mecca for fashion lovers, but for lovers in general. In the film "Midnight in Paris", director Woody Allen transports the audience, as well as protagonist Gil Pender, to Paris in its most divine period; the 1920’s. The dimly lit streets are filled with the faint sound of Cole Porter’s  “Let’s Fall In Love.” Nostalgia, in its most fabulous state, is literally around every corner. The protagonist, played masterfully by a bumbling yet thrilled Owen Wilson, comes face to face with his literary hero’s including F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. The film goes from being not only a brilliant film, but to a delicious portrait of Paris in the jazz age.

    But what caught our eyes here at Unique Vintage were the costumes, of course. With this film getting Oscar buzz left and right, we expect for the '20s to come roaring back onto the scene for this Holiday season. The carefree era we have come to know for its numerous libations is going to be the central theme for countless events, and Unique Vintage wants you to be the first one in line for the Charleston!

  • Introducing Unique Vintage's September Pinup Girl

    UNIQUE VINTAGE'S SEPTEMBER PINUP GIRL...

     Tiffany “Miss Rockett Girl” Frankenberger

    From: Cranford, NJ

    Bio: I have been pinup modeling five years this November. It was something I fell in love with while flipping through hot rod magazines and seeing all the pretty girls posing on the various cars. It sparked my attention and I was determined to find a photographer willing to photo shoot me. Fast-forward five years later: I have never stopped and have loved every minute of it. It has opened my eyes to people’s perception of what beauty is. I have never thought of myself as a plus size anything until I was placed in this category while modeling. I am ok with it and I embrace it. I consider myself an average sized person but in modeling standards, I am a plus size, curvy model. So I use my modeling as a way of speaking out for the plus size community and tell all the little girls who are considered “fat” that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to be a size 4 to be a pin up. Fifty years ago, pinups where more curvy and had some meat on their bones. I say this with confidence since I live with an 88-year-old grandmother who lived through this era, and she approves of my pictures. She says not all women where skinny or are meant to be skinny. She also says the secret to ladies trying to be thin back then was all of the corsets, girdles and waist cinchers they wore under their clothes.

    Since I began pin up modeling, I have started my own styling company and a photographer and I have partner up a couple times a month to do photo shoots. It’s fun being able to transform all of the lovely ladies into beautiful pinups. I’ve been able to pull from my own experience watching the hair and make up people do the same for me.

    I have also been featured in Retro Lovely magazine five times. This has been a dream for me. It proves that you don’t have to compete with the skinny gals to have a page in an amazing magazine!

    I wish all the best to all my fellow aspiring plus size and regular pin up models. It is the most fun you will ever have!

    Ambitions: My ambitions are to represent the plus sized pinup community the best I can. I have never considered myself plus size. I feel at a size 12/14 I am a normal size. My size fits my body shape and height. It wasn’t until I began modeling that I was put into a category. It has never stopped me from achieving my dreams of being a pinup model. One day, I hope to model for a fabulous company as yours and have little girls who are curvy and plus size look up to me for inspiration.

    My second ambition would be to have my own accessories’ store. I have been designing and creating my own jewelry and hair accessories for a few years and would love to finally have my own designs featured on models and on blogs and websites.

    Favorite Vintage Accessory: I have two favorite accessories, actually: Vintage purses and hair accessories; I am a sucker for vintage purses and love finding them in thrift stores, cleaning them up and wearing them out. Also, I love hats, veils, feathers and flowers. They can make any simple outfit stand out and look like you paid a lot of money for it.

    Favorite Pinup Icon: I LOVE Audrey Hepburn and her classic style. It’s very clean and fresh and oh so stylish. I also love Lauren Becall. She has everlasting beauty. Not only was she stunning back in the day, but she had a very strong presence on screen, which I adore.
