Vintage pieces are a great way to infuse your wardrobe with an eclectic, one-of-a-kind style.  Look for pieces with interesting patterns, textures, and colors in classic shapes that will stay in style forever.

1. Pump up the volume with a bright pink suede mini.  The high-waisted pencil shape is classic, but the material and color give it edge.  Skirt from The FAD Pop-Up Shop, $20.

2. This perfectly worn-in leather shoulder bag has beautiful, hand-tooled details.  Bag from Twin Hearts, $42.

3. This smocked floral dress is breezy and bohemian for summer days.  Dress from Old Age Vintage, $48.

4. Swap out your everyday sneakers for a pair of chic, natural jute espadrilles.  Shoes from Dear Golden, $34.

5. A great scarf will never go out of style.  I love the richly colored floral pattern and fringed trim on this one.  Scarf from Verseau Vintage, $16.

6. A military-inspired cardigan in hot pink is simply chic.  Sweater from Bluesy Mod Vintage, $26.

Thursday’s handmade favorites.


If you’re looking for a new pair of shoes, (I know I pretty much always am) check out Pauline in Love: comfortable slip ons handmade by worker cooperatives in Argentina to support fair trade and ethical consumption. Most of the line is vegan-friendly and made with canvas and rubber. Lots of colors available too. And I like these the best. What about you?

Yah! It’s Friday. Here are today’s picks.
