When it comes to vintage, a lot of us tend to overlook swimwear, but this summer why not mix it up by trying vintage swimwear and stray away from the typical Bandeau Pack? As I’m sure all of us have heard on multiple occasions “trends always come back in style,” the pieces we put together couldn’t be a better example of that.
The Versace motif revival right now is one of the biggest trends we’re seeing at retailers everywhere. Why not do right by Gianni Versace by actually donning one of his original pieces! Our Vintage Versace Gold Stem Bikini is one of those remarkable pieces that while it is vintage, it timelessly looks contemporary. The piece has magenta & light pink color blocking underneath original Versace floral print. The gold bamboo shoots in the piece adds a touch of luxury to this bathing suit, perfect for spending a day taking in the sun poolside at Soho Beach House. Crochet is a great way to stay on trend this summer. Our Vintage Lilac Crochet Bikini is the perfect piece to try hobo chic for the summer. The violet, lilac, and lavender striped triangle top with solid boy short bottoms give you the chance to take on vintage at the beach this summer. Match this adorable bikini with an oversized, floppy hat for an authentic vintage summer hippie look.
Be daring this summer! Try something new by putting on something old, do swimwear this summer with vintage! We guarantee you won’t have to deal with the embarrassing moment when you encounter someone in the same bikini as you!
Some trends may seem more daunting than others, for example staying on trend with some blue eyeliner might be a little easier than rocking some leather in the spring. Metallics were a huge hit this year for Spring/Summer and for most of us mixing them into our closet can seem a like scary job. With a little help from this guide we hope that we can help you swallow the metallic pill and enjoy working this bold trend into your everyday look. We put together a few outfits that are on trend, wearable, and of course we did it with vintage!
Working metallics into your accessories is a good place to start for beginners and will still have you looking like a total fashionista. Try out a pair of metallic shoes like these Pierre Hardy Snakeskin Heels to give your everyday office wear an extra pop. We outfitted these killer heels with aMarc Douglas Sleeveless Dress, Alaia Bowler Handbag, and this stunning Pamar Necklace for a perfect 9-5 look.
It is no mystery why the brilliant and exotic agate gemstone has been deposited all over fall/winter 2011 ready-to-wear collections. From Gucci to Yves Saint Laurent, this impressive chunk of mother nature is showing up on everything from earrings and necklaces to brooches and cuffs.
Let the mystic powers of agate enrich your life and wardrobe, and do it with vintage! Check out the spectacular oversized agate ring available at C.Madeleine’s Online!
Originating from volcanic rock, this gemstone innately presents itself in a variety of bold colors arranged in concentric circles. Since its discovery along the shores of the Greek Islands over 3,000 years ago, many ancient myths and traditions have surfaced around the stone. Legend suggests agate to be a powerful calming and emotional healer, warding off insomnia while producing pleasurable dreams. It is said to offer a heightened sense of confidence, while also improving stamina and stability.
