This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Unique Vintage. Unique Vintage is the creation of Katie Echeverry. Katie started out simply with an online shop of vintage finds and vintage reproductions. Well naturally interest built and it practically became a necessity for Mrs Echeverry to go full time and open a boutique. Her boutique is based out of Burbank California, and I long for the day I can actually visit it in person, until then I am constantly perusing the website http://www.unique-vintage.com/ They have everything thing from clothes to shower curtains, items inspired by the 1920’s to the 1990’s. There is something for everyone. You could close your eyes and point and end up picking out the perfect gift for me *hint hint* 😉
Yes glorious pockets!
Dress: Dallas Pinup and you can purchase it from Unique Vintage. This dress makes me feel like a million bucks! The moment I tried it on I knew I had to have it. The construction of this dress is phenomenal, it is made out of 100% cotton, and hugs my frame like a custom dress, that size chart is spot on. The color scheme is brilliant, I mean who doesn’t love a nautical motif? Plus it has pockets! This dress might as well come with a Hallelujah chorus because clearly it is heaven sent! http://www.unique-vintage.com/unique-vintage-ship-shape-navy-with-stripe-trim-wiggle-dress-p-10605.html

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Punkabilly Clothing. Punkabilly is the result of Tom, a man with a passion for punk rock and rockabilly, meeting Naomi, a highly rated model scout who had always dreamt of becoming a fashion designer. Someone who understands the punk/rockabilly culture and someone who truly understands fashion? A match made in heaven if you ask me. They’re based out of Bangkok Thailand and ship their products worldwide, in fact you get free shipping when you purchase $100 worth of pieces, and let me tell you $100 will get you pretty far. One of the problems I run into with dressing the way I do is that the pinup/rockabilly style can get very expensive! Punkabilly has fabulous prices but doesn’t skimp on quality. My dress is 95% cotton 5% spandex making it sturdy, but comfortable enough to wear for everyday occasions. I actually wore this for Christmas shopping on Christmas Eve, so comfort was pretty important. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ so I got a size large, and it is a perfect fit, so I’d say they remain true to size. I know how that can always be a bit of a gamble when purchasing items online, so no need for worry here.
