  • 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

    Miss August Unique Vintage Pinup Girl

    Name: Nicole Miranda Thompson

    From: Lebanon, Indiana. It's a nice, small town. No matter where life takes me it will always be home!

    Ambitions: I would like to be an alternative model, the branch of modeling that mixes old school beauty with tasteful tattoos and piercings. Every single woman has a captivating beauty about her that she should embrace. I hope I can encourage girls that true beauty starts on the inside when you carry yourself with grace, dignity, and compassion. When you're comfortable in your own skin, the beauty that radiates out is contagious. If that doesn't work out, I plan on getting my masters in library and media sciences. I love my job as a librarian! I'm all about enjoying life and every single moment and opportunity it brings!

    Favorite Vintage Accessory: An outfit isn't complete unless I have the perfect flower pinned into my hair! High heels and a smile are up there too!

    Favorite Pinup Icon: Bettie Page. No doubt about that! Her look is so iconic. All you have to do is see that smile, those bangs, and those curves once and you'll never forget her. She is the only model from that era who has amassed a cult following behind her, yet she was so humble. I truly admire that Bettie was setting standards and then kept raising the bar. She's a legend. Maybe I look up to her so much for being another small town girl with a dream!

  • 'TIS THE SEASON...FOR PLANNING A WEDDING

    Where better to shop than at Unique Vintage? I know this because I successfully choose a fabulous dress for each person in my wedding party all from this favorite girly-go-to store, which also happens to be where I work. Yes, it is a blessing and a curse to have this job! As the photographer/stylist for the site, I snag a first glimpse at all the new items. But if I'm not careful, I could get in a lot of trouble!

    It just so happens to be very convenient to have this job…I am planning my wedding this November! The theme? Vintage Hawaiian. This is tricky because I want to stay away from typical Hawaiian prints, but I did want to pull elements from the actual location…which will be on the beautiful and romantic island of Kauai.

    First thing first: I needed a color scheme so I decided to find the perfect bridesmaids dress and go from there. I envisioned something long and flowing in a chiffon-y material that would blow in the wind along the beach-y scenery. I finally came across the perfect dress:

    It’s classy and timeless, affordable and looks amazing on all of the girls! It also has a Hawaiian feel with its delicate flowers along the empire waist. I love it and more importantly, the bridesmaids love it. WIN, WIN!

    Next comes the flower girl attire. You would think it would be easy....little girls look cute in everything. The only problem is that the wedding is more on the casual side. Most flower girls dresses are much too formal for what I was going for. I wanted simple, comfortable and something that they could wear again. I decided in this adorable dress. It goes down to a size 2 and has ruching at the sides to allow for a secure fit. It has an adjustable neck that ties into the perfect bow. Pair it with one of our little girl crinolines and it’s a look to die for…the cutest thing ever!

    You could also add a light pink dahlia that matches the bridesmaids’ dresses to add a Hawaiian touch like this one below:

    Mother of the bride? Not a problem! With several different looks, both my mom and step mom were able to find the perfect dress. They didn't want anything overly matronly. My mom found this fabulous navy chiffon gown, which offered just the perfect amount of coverage at the shoulders:

    My step mom found something equally gorgeous. She chose this dress in the deep purple color option:

    Now...I think I found my dream dress, but I'm saving that one for my next blog post. I love it and can't wait to share it with you all!  I will also be featuring some of my favorite items for brides and bridesmaids so stay tuned!

    Xoxo,
