This Week In Fab or Drab: August 5 – 9


Welcome to another edition of Fab or Drab, darlings! You emptied all of your opinions out of your purse and threw them around generously!  Let’s take a peek at this week, shall we?

Katy Perry


Ms. Perry looked a little blue at the premiere of the Smurf’s film, but between her retro dress and divine hairstyle, we had a winner on our hands. Let’s check in with you dames!

Amber Pare: “Fab! I would wear the whole outfit (including the hair style) if I could!”

Kathryn Sylvia: “Fab but my only thought was if there was ever a time to rock the blue hair the smurf movie premiere was it love the style should have been blue though”

Angela Christine McGuire: “She actually looks nice for once.” (ouch)

This Week in Fab or Drab: July 29 – August 2


Welcome to another edition of Fab or Drab! This week, opinions were flowing like our gin on a saturday night. Let’s see how you gals did this week, shall we?

Naya Rivera



The “Glee” starlet was spotted this past week in this candy-coolred confection and was serving up the 1950s in the most fabulous way possible. We thought Ms. Rivera was channeling her inner Marilyn- let’s see what you gals had to say!

Natalie Harms: “How dare you even ask that question, she is absolutely stunning!”

Kat Lambourne: “Definitely more of butt dress then boob dress, I love the color though!”

Jennifer Gee: “Calm the hell down everyone. she looks amazing”

Get Ready for Summer with Unique Vintage!




New dress day is like Christmas here at UV: everyone wakes up at the crack of dawn to unwrap their goodies, and someone ends up crying out of sheer happiness. Which is why we’ve learned to apply a layer of water proof mascara and greet the day fabulously! Our new collection of summer-ready exclusives have arrived and have exceeded our expectations in every which way! Grab your handbags and take a walk with us as we take a peek at UV’s latest and greatest!



Summer has arrived in full force with our famous Flirty Swing Dress- now in a cheeky purple floral print! The classic halter style swing dress is pleated and ruched to perfection for a unique fit that only UV can deliver. For added flair, add one of our crinoline slips to the ensemble for an authentic 1950s look.



For an easy, breezy work-appropriate frock, try our Strapped For Time Wiggle Dress! A two tone beige and black combination is matched perfectly by a cocktail ready, pencil style dress. A sensible neckline is contrasted with a V-neckline in the back and the classic straight skirt is both body conscious and fabulously retro. Transition from day to night in true diva form!



We think you’ll mesh together nicely with this next one. Our Sheer Elegance Dress is a fantastic new addition to our brand! Complete in a brushed cotton, this cocktail dress is pristinely 50s- from its mesh neckline to the gathered swing skirt. And get ready to hear your two favorite words: belt included!



Our classic Seeing Stripes Swing Dress has been updated for the season in a nautical navy blue! A strapless style top is made complete by a full, gathered swing skirt. Perfect for a night of doing the Watusi or Hand Jiving. For added volume, add one of our crinoline slips for a little extra boost of fabulousness.



And lastly, what better way to greet the season than in a ravishing red? Our Lydia Wiggle Dress arrived and stunned us all! This perfect tank style wiggle dress is pegged to perfection for all your pin up needs! A delicately pleated bodice is met with a tight, 50s-style pencil skirt silhouette. Channel your inner Joan Holloway in this red-hot stunner!

There you have it gals! This was just a taste of all the fabulous new pieces that have just arrived, so throw on your sling backs and shimmy over to our Unique Vintage Brand section for a peek at your future wardrobe! Fabulously- and exclusively- at Unique Vintage!
