It's a Wonderful Life... When You Wear Vintage Fashion!

Happy Holidays Time Bombers! Last evening while watching It's a Wonderful Life my heart was aching not only for George Bailey but also because of the beautiful vintage fashion. I have collected the best images of the costumes that were available and shared them with you. Take a look and feel the inspiration! Personally, I wish George had married Violet, got out of that old town, and headed out in the world with glitz and glamor! 

Happy Holidays Time Bombers! 

If you have never seen It's a Wonderful Life the link for the movie is below

Mary and George dance at the end of the year dance. Mary's dress is amazing and I love how dashing George looks! 

Sam's wife in a fur and beautiful hat! Makes me want to put a brooch on my ski hat! 

I included this picture because I love the collar on Mary's dress. 

Violet is my favorite character! Her hat here is unbelievable! I hope to one day wear one just like it! 

If I owned this dress I would wear it 24/7! Not to mention the gloves and bag are positively perfect! 

Mary's dress again is very pretty.

I love how put together Mary looks. I wish I was that polished.

Again Violet steals the scene! This blazer's detailing is simply gorgeous! 

You can see the blazer's sleeves here, how perfect! 

Here is a colored picture of Mary's collar. I just love the fine detail.

I am a huge fan of three piece suits and George's in the movie is beautiful, unfortunately this was the best image I could find. It was tweed and built perfect. Isn't Jimmy Stewart dapper!

Here is a link to the full movie in color. I hope you love it!

Fall Into the Color of the 1960s; A Look at Fall Fashion

Greetings Time Bombers. I have been researching and glancing through lots of fashion magazines trying to capture the look of fall 2011 fashion. I must say I am beyond excited. Thank goodness we can say goodbye to those awful dreary neutral shades that bombarded us during spring and summer. They're pretty, but they simply don't command a room's attention, and you're a Time Bomber, whole ballrooms explode when you enter!  However, that is all in our fashion past, because fall's colors rolled in like something off Picasso's paint pallet. I could best describes these hues by comparing them to the shades of fruit; tangerines, plums, pumpkins, apples, tomatoes, and a cornucopia of others. Its like a feast for the eyes.

Even more thrilling then the color pallet of fall fashion is the look. It appears to be very 1960s. With big teased hair and beautiful mod makeup. I am telling you, I haven't been this inspired by current fashion trends in a long time. I want you to get charged-up too. So I have attached two videos, one to show you how to tease your hair without damage and another on how to get that great Raquel Welch make-up look of the late 1960s. In addition I have included pictures and links of items available at our Etsy Store that are the perfect shades for fall. I hope you enjoy!

West Chester, a Vintage Lovers Delight!

Hey Time Bombers! Recently I visited my Aunt Shane in West Chester, PA. She has been asking me to spend the day shopping with her for an embarrassingly long time and I've always been to busy. However now that the store is closed for renovations I had the time to do a day trip! I had such a great time and wanted to share some of my favorite shops and stops! 

The first stop was Cottage Home. They describe themselves as having unique furnishings and vintage flair! What stood out to me the most about this adorable cottage was the amazing display! I dream of being as creative and careful as the mother/daughter team at the Cottage Home. Please if you are in the area check it out! Bring a truck and a shopping bag, because you will leave with both furniture and jewelry! 

Here the Cottage Home created a beautiful display with a set of vintage suit cases. They utilized color blocking in their displays throughout the store and the effect was lovely!

Forgive the poor photo here, which is again from the Cottage Home, I took it quickly with my Phone. They had the best wall of costume jewelry! I loved every piece! I was so inspired. I just can't wait to open our shop again! 

Next we traveled to Gay Street where we visited The Green Eyed Lady. While I must be honest, I wasn't impressed with their clothing, they carry new lines, but they did have an amazing amount of vintage jewelry! Careful, it is mixed with lots of new jewelry too. I would be sure to ask the sales clerk to make sure you're getting something that is truly vintage. While there you must check out their bakelite collection. I wish I had gotten a picture of it, but I was overwhelmed and not thinking! The owner bought an entire bakelite collection that was once featured in a book. BEAUTIFUL!
Several bars, with vintage jewelry hanging on them. It was overwhelming!

 After visiting these two stores we took a break at Kiwi Yogurt. What fun! Here you pick your own yogurt flavor or combination of add the toppings and pay for it by weight. I believe it was .49 cents per ounce
Here is the wall of yogurt! They had thirty flavors. I mixed Cheese Cake with Strawberry, both were fat free. I added fresh strawberries and gram crackers. Yummy!

Then we went to my favorite stop all day! Malena's Vintage Boutique. I loved this place and the owner, Malena is amazing. She has been in business for eight years. What an inspiration, she opened the store when she was only 22-years-old. The store is filled with lovely vintage treats! It had some of the greatest evening wear I have ever seen in one spot. She also shared some valuable business tips with me. I truly loved this store and its owner!

Malena's is Open! 

My treat to myself at Malena's, Dog shoes. They're made of leather and beyond adorable. It was love at first sight!
 Finally, our last stop A Taste of Olive is a store dedicated to Extra Virgin Olive Oils and balsamic Vinegars on tap! They had a huge variety of blends, from earthy tasting to super spicy. I bought Dave the Herbs de Provence blend and it is delicious!

A Taste of Olive

In addition to all this, I thought I would also share a picture of Miss Ruth's new found talents, jewelry making! She treated these different scraps from old jewelry to make them all look old and even made the chain herself! Keep an eye out for when our store re-opens and we have Miss Ruth's new line of jewelry for sale! 

Thanks for reading and don't forget to shop Miss Ruth's Time Bomb online!
