Vintage Modern

10 Aug

If I was asked to sum up my thoughts on the budding collection of sisters Elisa Mona and Stella June in two words… well, just refer the above title.

I was pointed to their saucy yet sweet site by my friend Amy, who loves sourcing and supporting independent (not to mention local!) designers just as much as I do.  The thing that screamed out to me the most about Mona et June’s line truly IS the seamless integration of old and new, trendy and classic, etc., etc.

Prairie Flower Dress- $50.99

This is accomplished combining the equally fashion savvy, but genre-polar minds of the siblings (Mona- vintage, June- classic/modern).  It’s a marriage made in couture heaven, or rather, Philadelphia to be precise.   The Prairie Flower Dress (above) is a shining example- taking the always hot frontier trend and melding it with lines reminiscent of a top fit for Miss Page.

Oh, and to deepen my love even further for this line- everything on the site is under 70 bucks!!!… well, at least now, during the sale.  But still!  The “priciest” frock I could find was a mere $67… a drop in the bucket in the name of fashion- and having something that’s truly one-of-a-kind.  Go on girls!

Leave it to the Brits…

To pretty much do everything right.  Check out this pic of fashion plate and eternal goddess, Sienna Miller, below- courtesy of Cheap Chicas:

This post was brought to my attention by fellow blogger and friend, L.E.Défilé, who pointed out the similarity of Sienna’s dress to the one I was wearing (FreePeople, circa 2008).  Now, while I love CC’s suggestion of Delia’s fab sand-colored lace-up boots, I was bound and determined (and completely convinced that I can find a knock-off of ANYTHING-  just ask!) to find myself a sweet pair of doppelgangers.  And guess what?  I did just that.  In 5 minutes flat 🙂

Miss KG Swag Buckle Slouch Boot- $143 from ASOS.com.

This pair, from British outpost ASOS,  gives Miss Miller’s a run for their money.  Just loosen the top buckle, fold ’em down, and baby you’re ready to roll- celebrity style.
