  • Wedding Dress Sale Going on Now!

  • Vintage Goes Mainstream!

    This past Sunday's Los Angeles Times' Image Section was all about VINTAGE-inspired looks and guess who was featured? Unique Vintage Clothing Boutique, of course!

    According to Times writer Melissa Magsaysay, "The retro aesthetic is still a desirable one...[and] several local designers and retailers are creating and selling new clothing crafted to look steeped in the past. Their wares include cocktail dresses and bathing suits reminiscent of a Vargas girl, and they sell to customers who seem to be taking cues from modern-day vintage vixens, such as burlesque star Dita Von Teese and singer Katy Perry. [Unique Vintage] owner Katie Echeverry carries a wide array of vintage-inspired clothing for men and women in a variety of prices."

    To celebrate the niche trend of Vintage going mainstream, we just got in a bunch of fantastic summer frocks. Check out our favorites below! We hope you love them as much as we do!

Fabrics in printed designs and vibrant colors, daring styles and combinations are “in” this year. The collection encourages you to dare and not to be afraid of ridicule.

    Whether you are looking for long gowns or short, prom dresses 2011 are going to sweep you off your feet, most definitely. You need to be a wise shopper, nonetheless; you need to choose your options very carefully as there is literally a sea of possibilities out there, and you simply cannot and must not compromise.

    If you want to go overboard, you can choose from among the designer or expensive category where you’ll find an array of really great choices. If you’re worried about the price, though, there are some cost-saving measures you can actually do, just like:

    • Look up prom dresses 2011 in online stores. Online stores often offer gowns cheaper than brick and mortar stores.
    • Subscribe to email updates. Be among the first to know if the online store is going on a sale. This increases your chance of getting your dream gown before the someone else get her hands on it. Your subscription also alerts you to promotional shipping deals or other great deals for that matter.
    • Search for promotional coupons. Taking advantage of coupons can save you between 5% and 10%, or possibly more.

You might have wished to have a perfect figure because then you would not have to go through so much trouble finding the perfect dress. This is a misconception, actually, because for one thing there is no perfect figure. People often think that the bottle-shaped figure is the perfect figure, but really, any body shape (hourglass or not) can look perfect with the right clothes. It’s all a matter of creating an illusion of a perfect body, and thankfully, there are many choices in the prom dresses 2011 collection that would let you do this.

    One of the first things you must do then when searching for prom dresses is to determine your body shape. Then find out what the fashion experts suggest for your kind of body shape.

  • Be the Belle of the Ball with Short Prom Dresses

    Short prom dresses are making waves. Fashion trends are evolving and prom dresses really do not need to be so traditionally traditional anymore. It’s not to say that the Cinderella days are completely over, but long ball gowns have had their share of the limelight. Besides short prom dresses mirror the vibrant and feisty personalities of young girls today.

    Prom nights are still very much looked forward to, yes, but prom themes are no longer just about fairy tales, enchanting evenings, and sweet, happy endings. And so you would find some diverse collections of short prom dresses that are a reflection of what you want to be during your prom night. Don’t think that short prom dresses are only for gals with legs to flaunt because there are different styles to suit every body shape there is. Depending on your body shape, you can wear short dresses with a high or low neckline, with layered or tight-fitting tops, with wide belts or none. It is not necessary to have an hourglass feature to wear short dresses to the prom because with the right choice, you can be the belle of the ball even if you are apple-shaped, pear-shaped, or rectangular-shaped.

    Short prom dresses are so versatile that they’d really make for a wise investment. They can be accessorized such that you can wear them in formal occasions as in casual occasions. You can shop for short prom dresses on the internet where you can most likely get them for less. Online stores do not deal with plenty of overhead costs, so they can very well afford to offer their merchandise for a lot less. There are thousands of possibilities on the web’s virtual library, which can really work to your advantage, although that, too, can be confusing sometimes.

    Be very careful when making a choice. Double-checking an online store’s credibility can take time, but it can save you a lot of trouble in the end. Remember, there could be lots of better deals elsewhere if you know where to look. Review sites should offer much help, but you need to be a wise shopper yourself so as not to fall prey to swindlers and scammers. Consider these factors, in particular, when shopping for your prom dress:

    • Credibility of online store. Randomly search for customer feedbacks and find out what others are saying about the store.
    • Return and exchange policy. The problem with online shipping is that you don’t get to see the actual product. Moreover, your item can be damaged during shipping. But when the online store has a flexible return and exchange policy, you can be assured that you are still going to get your money’s worth anyhow if you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase.
    • Unique selection of short prom dresses. You certainly would want to look different at the prom, wouldn’t you? Vintage prom dresses are quite popular nowadays, so finding an online dress store that has a vintage collection should be great.
    • Cost. Short prom dresses come in all budget sizes, too, and you certainly do not have to break the bank to buy the prom dress of your dreams. Even if you have less than $100 to spend, you can still find excellent short prom dresses within your budget.

    Wearing short dresses to the prom is not at all a bad idea, nor is it surprising. Start making way for short prom dresses, then, and be the most radiant girl at your prom.
