Some people run actual marathons. I just run around from Christmas party to Christmas party, and it FEELS like a marathon. For my marathon, I need something that will wear well and be comfortable.
1950 starlet bow back gown SUPREME .medium.large
Free Shipping and 15% coupon - Vintage 1950s Pre Teen Juniors Holiday Evening Dress - Prom Dress Winter Ball Dress size 0 -2 X SMALL
The construction of this eye-catching red bag (perfect for a notepad and a laptop!) is definitely on the preppy side, but that's precisely how and why it worked its way into my heart. The red is simply brilliant. If you go ga-ga for color, then you knew it was love at first sight!
Made By: ModCloth
Price: $99.99 (originally $139.99)
J. Crew's Monaco cardigan is a great kickoff to CYBER MONDAY!!! Just a few days ago, this delicate and detailed cardigan was but a dream at an overpriced $180.00. But for $119.99 (and potentially another 25% off and free shipping if you can get it up to $150.00), this color pop cardigan will put a smile on your face and the faces of others on frigid winter mornings.

A bolero or a shrug can add a touch of style to any bride or bridal party outfit. This could be your something blue or a way for your bridesmaids to show their individuality by having them each wear a different color bolero. I like the detailing on this one and although it isn't super cheap, I think it has a high style-per-dollar ratio.

Brown Embroidered Eyelet Lace Jackie O Jacket with Bow
Here is a jacket/blouse from the wonderful 1950s. Be chic and charming with big sunglasses and cropped high-waisted pants and ballet flats. Brilliant!
Vintage Polka Dot Bow Tie Shirt
Tucker for Target recently released a polka dot tie-front shirt that I wanted to love, but I thought it missed the mark. This mid-60s gem is what I wanted it to be. If you click through to get a better look at the fabric, you'll see the polka dots are a little different, making this shirt a little better. This is CUTE! Tuck it into a little skirt with a nice jacket and you are set.
DIOR SILK BLOUSE New with Tags Red and Black Silk 1980s-early 1990s
SILK! DIOR! SIDE BOW TIE! I can't sell it any more clearly than that. Red and black can be a challenge. But you can pull together a sweet outfit with this piece. Love it!
So there you have it. I am officially obsessed with tie-front blouses. Part secretary, part first-lady, part fashionista... I need one now!
Till next time,
xoxo Vintage Vixen

Half of the fun of having a new tech gadget is figuring out how to use it. The other half of the fun is DRESSING IT.
Yep, you read that right. I dress my gadgets. (but at least I'm not one of those weird people that names them. That's weird.)
Long gone are the days when phone holders and computer cases were for storing purposes. The greatest designers have started making stylish, chic cases for your favorite phone or computer!
Take for example his red (and fabulous) Oscar de la Renta iPad Clutch. It's functional and so stylish, that you'll probably never want to remove your iPad from it.
Oscar de la Renta iPad Clutch, oscardelarenta.com, $290.00
Some of us would like to purchase a case that doesn't cost almost as much as the actual iPad, (seriously, it's almost that much), so I began the hunt for the fabulous & affordable iPad case. My favorite? Red of course.
But WAIT! There's more! It has POCKETS!
So... not only gorgeous and affordable, but also incredibly functional! Perfect for the office or school. (did I mention it also holds your iPhone? It's like an Apple happy place!)
The Clutch, Happy Owl Studio, $79.99
