This weekend we’ve arrived in Munich… and it’s beautiful, the sun is shining and everything is just lovely. We checked out the Englischer Gardens, and a bunch of other really huge buildings, and saw a bunch of lions. Hehe, I’m the perfect tourist right? Don’t worry, I have more detailed plans.
On day one, we [...]

Vintage Vintage

Over recent years the vintage market has dramatically changed due to e-commerce. It’s great, I truly love the new twists of vintage fashion and how it’s integrated in contemporary wardrobes. However, there are many wonderful old-school vintage sellers neglecting the shift and sticking to their ‘tried and true’ ways. Not so for Violetville Vintage, [...]

Brown Baggin’ It

SwanDiamondRose is one of those designers I noticed very early on in my blogging venture. Maybe two months in, I posted about her dresses, and she kindly replied ‘thank you’. I know it’s really a small thing, but to me it was huge, it was just enough encourage a small blogger posting endlessly into the [...]

Proper Tea Gloves

I have never grown out of tea parties. They are so lovely, with my favorite things, tea, cookies, sandwiches, great conversations… Having a nice afternoon tea is not only luxurious, but I find that they tend to be more real than doing the bar thing, which I’ve never really been good at.

Women Who Sing to Us : Three Groundbreaking Sirens

“Every genre of music has an extraordinarily great musician.” I say this when I tell people that I like all kinds of music, yes, even country. I particularly love country music from the 50’s and 60’s where the lines between country and rock ‘n’ roll are blurred in popular music of the time. The haunting [...]

New in The Shoppe: Getting Ready for Fall

Autumn is my favorite of the seasons… growing up in a climate with no real seasons, I’ll tell you the reason I moved away from paradise is merely to wear winter accessories. I just love the season’s colors… after all, according to Color Me Beautiful, I am an Autumn. All summer, I’ve been collecting [...]

Miss Matched : Tartan & Pinstripes

With vintage movies on the mind, it’s hard not be inspired by old Hollywood chic. The image of Katherine Hepburn, a woman whose name is synonymous with the Golden Age of Hollywood, has been lingering in my mind for some time. I’ve always admired how she could be so active and stylish, I just [...]

Coveting Chinatown, a Visit to 1930’s LA

Sometimes California seems so new, it’s easy to forget that there may be interesting bits of history and stories to tell. In college, I was captivated by Mike Davis’s City of Quartz and James Ellroy’s noir novels, they paint such a rich landscape of a Southern California I always thought to be culturally bankrupt [...]

Clash of The Tartans

Can you even call plaid a trend? I don’t really think so… some years it’s more favorable than others, but let’s be honest here, we all have a little tartan in our wardrobe. Every now and then a few designers will come out with some exciting plaids in their collection, this year there’s Matthew Williamson, [...]
