Be my Valentine

Valentines Day is fast approaching which brings to mind vintage lingerie. Nothing makes you feel as glamorous as vintage nylon and lace! Rarely does modern lingerie compare to the beauty, luxury and quality of vintage.

I adore the crystal pleating of this gorgeous vintage goddess gown in sheer black nylon with lace trim. It's a size medium and available now in our store.

Dollhouse Vintage has their own line of AMAZING retro 50's panties (these would make an awesome Valentine's gift!!). My favorite is the fuchsia sheer panties with black lace panels OHH-LA-LA! Available in a variety of sizes.

A Strong Dose Of 80's

I stumbled upon this video about a year ago and it still cracks me up. It really doesn't get more 80's than this. I don't know about you, but I get all my best 80's fashion tips from Mr. T! Enjoy!

70's Pinstripe Jumpsuit!

I just added this ultra fab vintage 70's pinstripe jumpsuit to the site. It's so damn cute! Oh how I wish I was long and lean enough to get away with a jumpsuit! I love it's matching red belt, red top stitching and polka dot lining at the neck (ok I love just about anything with polka dots!).

For those of you who love to sew you must check out MOMSPatterns!. Jen has one of the best selections of vintage patterns on the net. Check out this cute vintage 70's jumpsuit pattern (she has tons more to choose from as well!).

Disco Love

I'm a sucker for vintage 70's novelty print button down shirts. I can't resist their over sized collars and body hugging fabric and cut. The crazier the print the better as far as I'm concerned! Really there's no better way to stand out in a crowd than with a sexy 70's disco shirt covered in bright day glow mushrooms such as this one featured in our store. It even has french cuffs! I'm totally in love.

These cute novelty prints were also very popular with the men in the 70's. I come across the men's styles in my buying trips from time to time and they are quickly snagged by my boyfriend! If you're looking for great men's disco shirts (and yes the ladies can wear them too!) I highly recommend the totally groovy folks over at Check out the amazing print on their "High Priestess" shirt. It was almost impossible to pick just one to show you here. Their selection is HUGE and totally drool worthy!
