Gimme More Gunne Sax

April 20, 2012

0

Gunne Sax dresses have been a favorite of ours since childhood!  Gunne Sax is a clothing label  bought by Jessica McClintock in 1969 and the term is used for 1960’s and 1970’s prairie, medieval, renaissance dresses.  The term comes from “gunny sack,” those burlap bags used to store potatoes and often used for sack races.  This […]

East Meets West: Head Jewelry for Spring 2012

March 15, 2012

0

Head jewelry is always the norm in places like Egypt, UAE, and India, especially for brides and formal occasions.   But years ago, the hippie/boho chic vibe was in full effect in the States and their head jewelry may have been inspired by the influx of hippies in Marrakesh, Morocco who made their way over here.  […]

Old is new and less is more; we love these vintage-inspired looks for the beach this summer.  They show less skin and more fashion; we’re really loving the high waisted bottoms and retro one pieces.  Can’t wait for 2012 Swimwear Fashion Week in Miami to kick off in a few weeks!!

PANT-TASTIC!!

Spring and summer pants have taken a new shape, form, and print.  This is in our figure’s favor as loose, high-waisted, drapey, wide-leg, dropped crotch, and printed styles have made a comeback.  You’ll see more vintage 70’s floral bell bottoms and vintage 90’s grunge revival and palazzo pants while you think why you just couldn’t have kept […]

March In Spring’s Mile-High Shoes

March 30, 2011

We surrender to those chunky, clunky, bulky, sky-high, platform wedges!  Although the newest trends have us at least five inches taller, they also have us walking more comfortably.  How??  Let’s get all scientific . . . Platform shoes actually prevent foot pain as they keep your foot more flat.  Other heels keep your foot arched which causes […]
