OOTD: Strongman Swing Dress

April 9, 2014 by Unique Vintage | Lifestyle, Pin Up, Vintage Inspired

Theres something magical about the circus with the amazing acts, exotic animals, and delicious sweet scents of cotton candy and caramel corn. The instant we saw the Blue and Black Stongman Swing Dress we were head over heels in love. We adore statement prints and this little showstopper of a frock is adorned with a festive vintage-inspired circus print that we just couldn’t pass up.

Finish the ensemble by adding a touch of volume to the dress with the Black Tea Length Petticoat Crinoline.

OOTD: Nautical Flair

March 5, 2014 by Unique Vintage | Casual, Lifestyle, Pin Up, Vintage Inspired

Spring is almost here and we’ve been daydreaming about strolling along the boardwalk and spending long days at the beach with sparkling turquoise waters and bright golden sunshine. While the weather is still a bit too brisk for the beach, we decided to channel warm, sunny days with touches of nautical flair.

Keep the chills away with our lightweight and cozy Turquoise Embroidered Anchored Cardigan. Soft with a hint of stretch, you can toss this cardigan over your favorite jeans or a pencil skirt for instant va-va-voom! Style with the Navy Sally Swing Skirt, for the perfect mix of classic 1950s style and maritime poise. Simple and sophisticated with a fitted waist and cream ribbon detail at the hem, complete your look with the Silver Anchor Stud Earrings for work-appropriate vintage style.

For subtle nautical touches, accessorize with the Navy Hold Fast Bowler or the Black and White Galley Ho Anchor Wallet. Perfect for stashing all of your essentials, this wallet/purse combination is cute, durable, and oh-so pin up chic. What’s not to love? Of course, no look is complete without the perfect pair of shoes.
