Swoon-worthy Sunday: red and blue and adorable all over?

Sunday, July 28, 2013



 I'm excited to introduce a new feature on Va-Voom Vintage- Swoon-Worthy Sunday. Every week, I will share some swoon-worthy things that I have been dreaming of or use already and adore.

 This week, I'm loving this gorgeous Spin There, Done That Dress from ModCloth. It's brand new today! I don't know about you but I go crazy for anything in check and gingham, especially in the summer. To pair with the dress on hot days when I can't be bothered with pin curls, this timelessly elegant turban headband in red from lookbook store . I'll take one in every color, please! Slick on a coat of my favorite summer product Besame Lipstick in Carmine because the sticky heat is too much for full on red sometimes.

 Also this week, I spotted this amazing fake-a-lite brooch and earring set from Vintage and Vanity . They call it fake-a-lite but they should really call it "fab-a-lite"! I am madly in love with her repro jewelry. The carved bracelets are also amazing. To finish off the look, these sweet Apricot Polka Dot wedge from Tidestore. Mixing prints is a tough thing for me because I'm always afraid that it'll clash but really, I don't think you can go wrong with polka dot wedges, do you?


The steal of the week is the red turban headband for only $11!

  3. I'm so glad you posted about some fabulous fake-lite! I was just thinking last night about how I can never afford the outrageous prices of bakelite and its unlikely I will run across some cheap. But Oh my the carved bangles from vintage vanity are to die for!! I'm swooning over the mint green!

  9. Oh my, that brooch is absolutely adorable!! I too have a hard time mixing prints but I've been dipping my toe in it this summer a few times, and it's quite fun. I've tried to stick to something less busy (like a polka dot) paired with something more busy (like a plaid or floral). I always think it looks so clever and cute when other people do it!
