Let's Sail Away

I yearn for the warm sun on my face, gentle wind flowing in my hair, and the sound of waves lapping against the shore. For me, sparkling blue water is simply irresistible. Mark Shaw captured Jackie Kennedy's love of the water in 1961. The photograph of Jackie remains stunning, classic, and timeless.

Capture your love for all things nautical by adding a patriotic 1960's red, white, and blue dress to your wardrobe. Get this Jackie O style dress from Great Grandma Agnes' etsy shop for only $32. Set sail everyday by adding an adorable anchor by Stefeny Stanyer to your sassy summer accessories.

Say goodbye to the ordinary and cruise your way into noticeably stylish with this 80s nautical swimsuit. Complete with gold chains this swimsuit from Back Yard Bird Song is perfect for a day of sailing or a beach party with friends.

Set sail with stylish everyday!

XoXo,

Vicki

Vanity Is Her Name


I'm a lover of anything sparkly so it should come as no surprise that pretties sitting on vanities are amongst my favorites. Glimmering perfume bottles, dazzling mirrors, and shiny silver trinkets are exquisite treasures to me. Diane Kruger uses her pretty vanity for displaying beautiful goodies.

Perfume bottles gleam when paired with mirrors. Get double bling with a vanity tray and accent your favorites by putting them on display. Vintage perfume bottles add a little luxury to your collection. Try a colored bottle from Kalligoddess with a lotus glass topper (only $25). Add a faceted glass bottle from Vintage Mary Ellen to your vanity for a mere $12.

A little glamour for you and your decor!

XoXo,

Vicki

Keys To The Heart

I'm mesmerized by vintage keys. The wonderment of history; the story behind each key captivates imagination. The symbolism of a heart shaped lock is both timeless and classic.

Taylor Momsen rocks a heart shape locket on the set of Gossip Girl. The designers for Gossip Girl have their fingers on the pulse of fashion. Don't watch for the drama; get obsessed with the fashion! Take a modern twist of the vintage heart locket and add this chuncky silver padlock by Trash And Trinkets to your must-haves.

Black and white pearls combine with a gold locket to make the Black Tie Affair bracelet by Komis Couture a versatile accessory. Feeling a tad creative? Buy a vintage key like this one by KAPARA and design your own. Bring a bit of history to your neck, wrist, or home decor!

Add a bit of timeless charm to your life with darling hearts and decadent keys!

XoXo,

Vicki

Birds of a Feather Flirting Together


I'm tempted by the flirtatious feeling of feathers. Feathers aren't just for showgirls, flappers and burlesque, they're for making a splash anytime!

Sensational Zooey Deschanel adds vintage flair to her look with a black feather skirt. The showgirl in all of us is bound to fall in love with this steam punk corset creation by Olga Italy. Fluffy black feathers and sparkly sequin appliqu├ęs create a fun and flirty costume.

Planning a summer wedding? Do something wild with your bridesmaids and add this silk flower (Icing101) to their hair or waist! A touch of vintage mixes with a hint of class combine together to make this brooch (All Made with Love) completely one of a kind.

Go outrageous! Go over-the-top! 

XoXo,

Vicki

Chocolate Decadence


I'm craving scrumptious chocolate. Summer is the perfect chance to bring out your browns. The rich color highlights the summer glow & sun kissed bronze of your skin. Don't stop there; chocolate brown delights on everything from accessories to home decor to s'mores!

A yummy brown peony dazzles on this summer clutch from FIAZCO. Lip-smacking smoky brown topaz highlights the pearls & quarts in this luscious necklace handmade by catrocks. Sizzling sterling loops and drops of chocolate topaz by ArtWark highlight brown eyes and make them glow.

Sinfully delicious throw pillows in lime and chocolate are a stunning edition to a summer home decor. Rukkola creates pillows that are perfect for the patio or a garden party. A delightful babydoll or sundress in chocolate will look as amazing this summer on you as it does on Kate Hudson!

Satisfy your craving by adding some chocolate to your life!

XoXo,

Vicki
