Lilly Pulitzer, the Palm Beach princess of prints, is famous for her tropical and light hearted color combinations. While the initial attraction is the bold colors and blended prints, the touch and feel of her smooth fabrics and quality of cotton draws further attention. What cements the affair though is the comfort of fit and ease of her designs to wear.

An amazing collection of Lilly's fresh look will be on display in a special exhibit at the upcoming Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show in March.

We are very happy to announce a partnership with the New York City based charity organization Housing Works. With the hope of encouraging donations, we will be offering half-off regular admission price for anyone who brings an item of clothing, in relatively good condition, to the upcoming March show to donate. They are most in need of women's handbags, dresses and blouses, as well as men's wovens and shoes, so these items would be prefered. You will also be able to receive the discounted admission if you donate at any Housing Works store during the month of March and bring your dated tax-deductable donation receipt to the show. The donation discount will only be available for admission tickets purchased at the show.

Hopefully as everyone begins their spring cleaning and finds items they no longer wear, this oppurtunity will spark motivation to come by the show, donate your old and shop some vintage!

Find more info about their organizaton at housingworks.org

In February 1947, Christian Dior’s first major collection hit the runway in what has become one of the most important events in fashion history. The New Look, as it was referred to, was made up of long, full skirts with a nipped-in waist, rounded shoulders and exaggerated bust lines. This look became the predominant fashion aesthetic for the following decade. The appeal in the swish of long skirts and the allure of curvaceous shapes did not come without a high price though.

‘Almost Dior: America’s Stamp On The New Look’, shows American designers and manufactures from the 1950’s such as, Ceil Chapman, Suzy Perette and Dan Millstein, who began producing affordable versions of the Parisian designs. These quality interpretations could be found in regular department stores or boutiques, thus on a slim budget of fifty or sixty dollars someone in America could emulate the look of a glamorous Parisienne.
