Belle's DearGoldenVintage Favorites

Jun 10, 2010

Over the past few months, I have become a bit of an Etsy.com addict.  And while navigating Etsy is a bit like walking down U Street at 1:00 AM on a Saturday morning–wading through the weird and creepy in search of a gem–you can find something wonderful if you are willing to search.  

One of the site’s best kept secrets is DearGoldenVintage.  This well-edited collection of vintage styles is filled with pretty, prim pieces that would add a touch of style and sweetness to any Capitol Hill wardrobe.  And unlike many vintage stores on the site, the prices won’t make your eyes bulge out of your head like a cartoon character.

 

Lemon Plisse Dress ($78)

Green Leaves Necklace ($18)

Sailcloth Coat ($88)

White Mademoiselle Chain Clutch ($25)

Mon Coeur Rouge Dress ($258)

I had to save the party dress for last.

    First, you need to know your measurements. I mean, really know them. Size is a ridiculous concept and it means nothing in vintage, so measurements not size.

    Also, ask if you can buy on approval. I always ask to buy something, try it on, and have the option to return it at my cost for shipping. This way, if it doesn’t fit, I can send it back. Most everyone is willing to deal if you ask.

    I must have that seller’s 50s polka dot dress. Seriously. It will be mine.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
