I WANT This!

Hard to believe it's from the 80s but it's 100% me - I love the color, the fabric, the closed neckline and plunging back (coming soon in a "my vintage obsession" post) and the elastic waistline which makes it nice and tight on my smaller waist and perfect for a nice belt. Kristina - can I have this for my birthday please? Pretty please? Who cares in not until June?! AHHH.

Jeremy Laing - I LIKE You!

Yeah that green dress looks like it came out of no-where but it's indeed in this collection and I rather like it. But green dress aside - this my friends, is layering perfection. I pretty much want every single item presented here (and the weather to match).

Color Inspiration

Following Maria's post I realized I have been leaning towards the yellows, goldenrods, ochers, golds and mustards and I kind of like it. I think it's a wonderful color palette for autumn. I even have an awesome blouse in goldenrod of my very own (shown bellow). What's your favorite color for this upcoming season? (jeez if it ever gets here....)

1970s?

I briefly read an article today in the fashion section of "Time Out Tel Aviv", claiming that this winters fashion is all about the 70s. I can't say I was very happy about this. I think the 70s are my least favorites when it comes to vintage clothing. I don't find myself very attracted to the fabrics, design or silhouettes and the whole disco vibe is defintaly not me. I went through my favorites list on Etsy and could only find two clothing items:

I can't really say they have the typical 70s look. Now, I do stock some 70s items in my shop, however these are all items I would wear, also they come from Israel and I don't think Israel went through a hardcore disco phase so "our" 70s are in a more day dress direction.

Well this is turning into a ramble - all I really wanted to say is I hope I find pretty things for winter even though it's 70s styled.

My Vintage Obsession: Fitted Lace Dresses

Continuing this post, I've realized throughout the years that even though lace is a kind of stuffy/posh fabric, I am really really attracted to a certain type of fitted lace-covered dresses.

These dresses usually (as far as I'm familiar with them, or the one's I like anyway) come from the late 40's, the 50's and the early 60's, very 'Mad Men' in their look I guess (but I've liked them even before that show with it's horribly delicious wardrobe showed up). They are usually wiggle dresses but mostly they are just really fitted at the bodice - something that suits my body type perfectly.

I guess there's something very sexy in these dresses that makes my feline come out. It was actually much harder to find good examples of them on Etsy than I thought would be. I gave up after 40 pages.

I currently own and actively wear 2 dresses of this coveted category - I personaly think I hit the jackpot with one of them. Let me know what you think. I chose to wear it a little unconventionally for a photo-shoot a couple of years ago. My hair looks lovely. Just thought I'd throw that in..
