Favorite Things: El Vintage

Saturday, December 4, 2010

I recently discovered Emily's Etsy store, El Vintage and have become a huge fan, especially because she carries so many pieces from the 1970's (a personal weakness). I just received two amazing dresses from her and can vouch for the quality and authenticity of the items she sells. And now through December 15th you can get 15% off with the coupon code--PRECIOUS. You can also catch her on her blog. These are some of my favorites in her store right now.

Doesn't this look like something coming out of J.Crew about now?

What girl doesn't need a great camel-colored coat?

This one was in my cart, but the measurements were just a tad too big. Must make myself a version of this one!

Wouldn't this be so pretty for a New Year's Eve party?

Love, love, love the beadwork on the sleeves. Exactly the sort of detailing I love, but don't do too often because it's so time-consuming.

Only for California Sophisticates--that's what the label says...

This just has boho-chic written all over it.

Can't wait to show ya my recent purchases from Emily!
And about the wedding dress. I took some pics, but it was FRIGID out, so I had a coat on the whole time, and my husband said it would be really lame to post them. I disagreed 'cuz it's a really simple column silhouette and you can still see the best parts.
So, it's really up to you. Should I go ahead and post the pics I have or wait and do a spring version? Let me know.


  1. you are incredible! Thank you so much for the post and being such a fabulous person.
    I look forward to helping you incorporate more vintage into your wardrobe.
    Big hugs and kisses to you! Emily from EL Vintage

    PS- Dont forget the GIVEAWAY friendship bracelet.
    (Sending you one with your new purchase, x)

  2. THank you so much for your comment, I adore these pieces. The blouse is just beautiful I have a red one I got months ago, that I am still yet to wear. I will have to check out the store :) BTW I am in love with your hair colour xxxx

  3. well of course the immediate gratification part of me is like "I want to see wedding pics now!!!!" but I'm sure the spring pics would be better with the beautiful blooming flowers...

  4. Oh my word...I love that oatmeal coloured dress with the placket front. So cute!!!

    I'm your newest follower...excited to see more of your style!

  5. Fabulous choices. I particularly love the Albert Nipon dress. That label always produced some very stylish pieces. Thanks for spreading the love for vintage! :-)

  6. these are such beautfiful pieces. I wish Anthro could replicate these items somehow!

  7. I think you should post the wedding dress pics and then post them again in the spring! I would love to see them!


  8. I love all of the dresses :)
    Actually, I love everything vintage...


  9. Oh that first blouse is divine! I absolutely love anything with ruffles :) I think it's even cuter than what they've got at J.Crew right now, ha!

  10. Vintage dresses don't really work out well on a big gal like myself, but these items are lovely to look at. The first blouse is amazing!

  11. These are some lovely vintage pieces, I must take a look at her Etsy store. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the comment you left on my blog, I really love your's so I've joined your followers xxx

  12. goodness gracious! i am totally drooling right now! WOW... i want it all!


  13. I love the Etsy shop dress photos. Nothing can match beautiful handmade clothing. I can't help but agree to anything that characterizes the 70's. After all I was a teen through that decade. It was wonderful. Layering anything with everything was the thing to do. Willowy fabrics. Lots of denim. And the advent of the Platform Shoe. I also want to thank you for graciously sharing your styling Product. Sabastian stopped making Wet Phase last year. So annoying when they do that. And now Frizz Ease has changed their line up of shampoo and Condition. The new stuff isn't helping me at all. And menopause is causing my hair to receed in front. Your hair always looks great. Thanks again!
