Hey there! I’m Kaylah from The Dainty Squid. Heavily tattooed lady with candy colored hair living in Cleveland, OH where I spend my days riding my bicycle, taking photos and petting all the stray animals I come across. I am a huge supporter of the #iamunique campaign and a proud member of the Style Society. Today I’m here to share a few of my favorites picks from Unique Vintage. I think after you see these it’ll be all to easy to see exactly what my fashion tastes are.
The holidays can always be a little rough on our wallets. Which is why we’re always looking to fashionably impress for less as soon as January rolls around. No matter your budget, we have one fabulously affordable top that we’ve styled three ways to give your wardrobe a fresh start in 2015!
As the days get cooler and shorter, we’re getting excited about transitioning our wardrobe into Fall and Winter. The simplest trick to staying warm and looking autumnally fabulous is by adding layers to your summer essentials. We’ve pulled together some simple ensembles that showcase how to transition your favorite pieces into chilly weather.
Take your favorite high waisted jeans into the season by styling with a timeless black and white houndstooth top, a classic black and gold purse, and for a pop of “warm” color, our 1960s inspired Pink Button Up Coat.
October is finally here and that means it’s officially Halloween season and more importantly Halloween costume season. Here at Unique Vintage, we couldn’t be more excited! This wickedly wonderful time of year is when we finally get to dress up in every kind of frightfully fabulous ensemble from our favorite impeccably dressed vintage icons to ghoulishly glam zombie pin ups. Our frightfully fabulous Halloween Homage collection is filled with spirited styles that are sure to lend some bewitching costume inspiration.
We’re back, darlings! After a week of routine mud masks and manicures, we’re feeling fabulously refreshed and ready to peek in on some of our favorite lady-stars! Did they put in the effort? Did they get dressed in the dark? Secure your hats and your bras and come walk with us this morning.
