Welcome back, darlings! Take your coat off, put your purse down and grab a cocktail! We have a lot of ground to cover and even more eggnog to sip. Sit down and let’s get started, shall we?
Dame Helen Mirren
Say, “Hello” to Gia, our oh-so-fabulous data entry/copywriting sorceress. She works her magic every day at UV by adding new products and copy to our site. Here, she shares a few of her favorite items from her Unique Vintage wish list.
As simple as it is elegant, the white Russian is the quintessential after dinner dessert drink. We were inspired by this snow-hued favorite to create a darling ensemble thats perfect for your next holiday party. The Unique Vintage Roman Holiday Ivory Scalloped Swing Dress is a showstopper when paired with bold accessories like the Red Lady Lux Kiss Lock Bag and the Red Satin T-Strap Cutie Pie Heels. Finish the look with a pair of demure earrings like the Black Flower Retrolite Earrings and the Ruby Leopard Trim Smart Screen Gloves for a touch of cozy.
The White Russian
- 3/4 ounce coffee liqueur
- 1 ounce vodka
- 2 ounces heavy cream
- Add coffee liqueur and vodka to an ice filled old-fashioned glass, stir and finish with heavy cream. And ENJOY!
Welcome back, darlings! And happy holiday season! We’re breaking out our faux fur hats and going over our gloves inventory as we speak! The dames of Hollywood are breaking out their winter clothes and you all had a week’s worth of opinions to share. Let’s dive in, shall we?
Our favorite royal appeared after a lengthy absence to show off her divine outerwear to us, isn’t that nice? The Duchess was spotted in this aviary coat dress and we positively swooned. Let’s see what you gals thought:
Terese Roberts: “Gosh, I love her”
Kierra Matthews: “As always, fab! So classy!!”
Elizabeth Bonnet: “ I really do not think that she could be drab. Maybe when she wakes up.”
Our favorite buxom beauty arrived last week in all her tartan glory and we applauded the dame. We love a fabulous plaid this time of year and our patron saint, Ms. Christina, is showing us how it’s done. Opinions, gals! Go!
Emmalyne Braswell: “Whoever the designer may be who created a button-down to fit her ample bust be praised! Absolutely gorgeous.”
Liz Minset: “That is such a great dress. Totally FAB”
Mary K. Hoover: “It is cute but not as curve flattering for her awesome figure!”
Our very own girl-on-fire was spotted giving us a little coat envy this week. Ms. Lawrence was giving us all the in’s and out’s of winter dressing and she did it all in a retro, 50s camel-colored coat. Nothing but praises, darlings. Thoughts?
Elizabeth Bonnet: “I love her hair. I think that she is an amazing person too. She seems like she is always looking happy.”
April McCool: “ Love her and love the coat. I’m generally not a fan of the pixie cut, but she rocks it, although I like her with dark hair better.”
Sarah Schroeder: “A pop of color would be nice but its overall classy and elegant.”
We wrapped up the week with a splash of old Hollywood glamour, dames! And Ms. Taylor Swift was able to provide some serious frock-wearing. The starlet was spotted with a divine hair and makeup regime, paired with an almost too-stunning gown! The young dame does us proud on a weekly basis. Hit it, gals!
Carol Spears: “Glamorous”
Danika Bass: “Love the dress, but she is getting way too skinny!”
Larry Thompson: “One classy young lady.”
Well there you have it, dames! Another week and we’ve filled our purses with your opinions. Make sure to join us daily on Facebook as we praise, or berate, the lady-stars of today! And join us every Monday for a fabulous little recap- here on the UV Blog!

Here at UV we love a good cocktail, but what we love even more is a fabulous ensemble inspired by one of our favorite classic libations, the dirty martini. We paired the oh-so lovely Green Martini Print 1950s Flare Dress with the Pinup Girl Black Milena Grosgrain Evening Purse and the Black Strappy Domina Heels. Finish your retro look with a pair of deco inspired Nude Swarovski Crystal Fan Earrings by Tarina Tarantino. Finally, pour yourself something dirty!
