Mrs. V. discovers Dolly and Dotty

Mrs. V. discovers Dolly and Dotty

There are some things which are near and dear to my heart, like vintage, reproduction vintage and pretty pretty dresses. There are some things which are even dearer to my heart, and those are brands and shops who really believe in what they do, and to whom their work is a thing of love. It is always my great joy and privilege to find and discover new shops and brands, and get to peek behind…

Mrs V has a crush on Callous Crow

I can’t believe it took me this long to discover Etsy. Seriously. I mean, I was aware of it, I would sometimes poke around it a bit, but I never really dedicated my time to it as much as I should have, it turns out. Because boy, was I missing out! One of the stores that I almost missed (and am SO incredibly glad I didn’t) is Callous Crow. Now, what do you need to…

Ticci Rockabilly

  One of the largest sources of unique clothing, and at the same time one of the simplest platforms for small brands to sell on is etsy.

This quirky and unique retro brand was…

How to wear flat brogues with a vintage and alternative wardrobe

How to wear flat brogues with a vintage and alternative wardrobe

I recently got a beautiful pair of brogues as a present. This proved to be a bit of a boggle, as side from the occasional combat boot, basball shoe or ballet flat, I usually prefer higher heels, and the brogue style shoes I do own all sport a varying degree of high heel. How to style vintage brogue without looking like either a wallflower or playing dress-up in my dad’s shoes? Since the Internet gave…

Mrs. V. discovers Belsira

  Oh gentle reader, do I have a treat for you today! A month or so ago, I stumbled upon the website of Belsira, a brand with their own unique twist on the pinup and retro fashion.
