PRINTED, PLEATED, PERFECT!
Today’s Party Princesses leave little to be desired but back in the day people like Lou Lou made a party feel more like a historical event. This is not a ‘jeans and a cute top’ or ‘isn’t that dress sweet’, kinda party – this is bust out the duds that were custom made for you by Yves Saint Laurent and cool off from the dark nights desert heat by slipping on those treasures you unearthed at the suc this morning while you were sourcing fabric for your day job. Enter our Vintage Gold Metal and Bronze Collar and Vintage Gold Metal and Bronze Cuff. Some girls may cool off with one too many drinks or a tacky dip in the fountain but you know a little cold hard casting is cooler to the touch and gets you the attention you deserve without having to make a spectacle of yourself.

Capturing the personal style of Lou Lou de la Falaise was an editing dream. Here we highlight our VINTAGE Gold Tassel Necklace and our VINTAGE Cameo Necklace that, no doubt, would have found their way in her repertoire. We love how her style was a bold as her personality. For example, most of us would kill to be a muse but when Lou Lou was referred to as one to none other than Yves Saint Laurent himself she was less than thrilled. Although the two were close friends and she in fact was his inspiration for many iconic creations, Lou Lou stood firm that a muse is somewhat of a passive, non-participator in what is created around them. Being in her own right a designer at the house that Yves built, and an asset in the industry that worshipped her, we too believe that she was more than a mere muse. She was an icon and a creator whose life was as inspired as the people she influenced. This month we pay homage to the dynamic dueling personality that was Lou Lou.
When the fashion gets rough the Style Troops get tough but no matter what trends get shuffled into the runway deck the best of the best’s motto is always Let’s Keep It Clean. The best moments are the ones that do not wear you and no matter what tricks your opponents have up their sleeve all bets are on you when you breeze in the room confident enough to let your style be the sidekick to the real star of the game- you. The best part about these classic pieces are that they do not force you to play the lady card- each piece deals you in on a new hand of The Style Games.
Everyone loves a trend that is Nice N’ Easy and nobody makes it easier then these guys. Bill Blass and Yves Saint Laurent breeze down the runway echoing the sentiment that The Vault keeps safe in the name of Halston, Hermes, Chanel and Tom Ford. The pajama trend may have you feeling like you just rolled outta bed but our take on this Style Moment comes to real life with our Vintage Halston three piece set that is as silky smooth as your under things without leaving you looking like you forgot to get dressed. After you slip on this bedroom inspired breakdown no one will accuse you of taking the walk of shame when you pull yourself together with our slinky Chanel shoes, paparazzi ready sunglasses and perfectly matched Gucci bag. We will have your ready for your close up when day light is at your doorstep and the only thing you will have taken from the bedroom was the key to his heart.
When it comes to Garbo It’s Not So Black and White and neither is our Navy Vintage Oversized Clutch with two sided mirror and Change purse. Garbo began her film career with a lead role in 1924 catching the eye of MGM big wig Louis B Meyer who quickly signed her up for a series of starring film roles. Garbo was so captivating in the silent error that all the studio had to do to promote her first ’talkie’ was to simply say – Garbo Speaks. Greta Garbo was known for her straight forward and serious personality which dominated her film roles and so when she signed on to do her first comedy in 1939 the studio once again relied on the audiences obsession with everything Garbo and promoted the film with the simple tag line- Garbo Laughs. Let’s face it – you know you are beyond a star when the promo factory only needs to attach your name and one verb to promote two major motion pictures.
Nothing brings the clean look to everyone’s full attention like a shot of good old fashioned Solid Gold. Gold never leaves you out of style and never lets you down whether your working in bracelets or belts, necklaces or rings you are sure to knock um dead with your arsenal of killer vintage accessories. Don’t let the Gold Rush pass you by this season. Nothing could be easier than slipping a little bit of metal magic on to bring home the gold.
