Designer spotlight: Rose Marie Reid

1950s Rose Marie Reid cotton playsuit w/metal zipper

I just listed a bunch of vintage swimsuits for the summer season! They are all so cute, I hardly know where to begin. Nothing feels better than lounging in a a thick cotton or nylon woven suit with a metal zipper down the back, hahah! Yet there is something about that style of suit that is just SO DREAMY. I happen to be selling two Rose Marie Reid suits, so I thought I'd feature that designer in a blog post. I found some amazing ads that are quite similar to the solid blue suit pictured below. Click the photo above and below to go directly to those Etsy listings, or browse my entire shop by clicking here. Enjoy!

Tapestry me

Me, stoked as ever.

I finally found the couch coat of my dreams this month (pictured above). I love wearing it with dresses that have equally as busy as a print. For my fellow tapestry coat lovers, I have a few more to spare!

Here is one of my favorite coats that I sold a couple of years ago. Sadly, it was too small for me to keep!

Viva Poncho!

I think capes and ponchos are winter's way of keeping the free form caftan style alive. I've sold many acrylic knit native-inspired sweater capes like the one pictured above (Luxie Vintage) and I just never get tired of photographing them! You'll initially wonder where your arms are supposed to go, but as soon as you slip into one of these you'll feel right at home. Take it to another level with a style that'll keep you warm even in the heart of winter, like this poncho pictured below.

I love these poncho-pushin' promo pics from way back when...

Me Against The Modern World

I finally sold out and bought a nearly brand new car this summer. This was one of my last car rides in my 1968 VW Beetle before I entered into the world of air conditioned vehicles. I'm not going to lie, now that I've had a taste of a the good life, it seems like it'd be hard to go back to the low-tech elegance that once chauffeured me all over the desert. So sue me if I've totally been enjoying the luxuries of post 60's automobile technology. That being said, I'm pretty much counting down the days until it's under triple digit temperatures so I can take my baby out for a ride again.
