Mad about Mad Men

I am mad about "Mad Men" but I am infatuated with the outfits of the show. Set in the early 60's the show takes place during a transitional period in women's fashion. The hemlines are becoming shorter as opposed to the earlier fifties style of a circle skirt that has more of a flat front and that is longer and fuller. By 1960, there's a gathering at the waist and the hem length has come up a lot. Joan, the vixen of the show, is more fashion forward wearing clothing that's fitted showing the silhouette of her body.

The YesterDaze outfit (shown right hand side, above) hugs the body and shows the fabulous curves of a woman's figure much like Joan's ensemble. The Yesterday outfit is priced at $65.00 which includes THREE pieces; the skirt, top and cardigan. To find out more information about the YesterDaze outfit please click HERE

Again, Joan's outfit is sexy and form fitting. YesterDaze is not to be outdone. We have the entire look for a great price:
Outfit Total: $125.50

Calling All Shoe Lovers!!!!!

I recently listed some fantastic vintage shoes on the Yester Daze online shop. I have enough shoes to rival the closet of Carry Bradshaw. However, there are two major differences between my and Mrs. Carrie's collection of shoes:
1. You won't find my little beauties in a department store window and therefore you won't find them on your girlfriends feet. In other words...mine are UNIQUE and One-of-a-Kind
2. My shoes are priced right and affordable to anyone out there. It shouldn't have to cost a fortune to look like a million.

Here's a little taste of what Yester Dazed has to offer in our shoe department:

Left: Coming up Roses Floral Pumps size 6AA $25.00
Right: 1950's Spectator Pump's size 6.5 $15.00

Top Left: 1960's Shiny Gold Pumps with Spike Heel $20.00
Top Right: 1960's Black with White Trim - 6B $15.00
Bottom Picture: 60's Black Suede and Faux Leather Pump $15.00

Left: Disco Shiny Silver 1970's Pumps $25.00
Right: 1970's Black Faux Reptile Pumps $15.00


Black Satin Pumps with Big Black Bow $25.00

So as you can see Yester Daze has a lot of shoe options. As always, if don't see what you're looking for please contact me and ask. I have a lot of inventory not listed on my online shop.

Why Buy Vintage... Ten GOOD Reasons.

10. Never Goes Out of Style: The definition of vintage is 20 years or older. If your vintage item is 20+ years old and still fits your decor, style, etc... then it's going to stay in style.

9. New Life for Old Items: So many vintage items can serve double duty. Example; Luggage can be used for travel, stylish storage, as end tables, art, a cat bed, etc... (see blog post from June 10th for more ideas on how to use vintage luggage)

8. Tells a Story: Each vintage treasure has been previously loved. It's hard not to love something that, in it's past life, gave so much joy to someone else

7. Quality: "They don't make 'em like they used to." - So true! If an item is 20 + years and it still works, looks good, is functional, stylish, etc... then it's bound to last at least another 20 year.

6. One -of-a-kind Find: The great thing about vintage is there are very few of each item left in the world. Buy vintage and you won't see the same thing at your friends house down the street. Purchase vintage clothing and you won't need to worry about going to a party and seeing someone wearing the same dress.

5. Conversation Starter: Unique, nostalgic, vintage treasures always remind people of a
story = good conversation starter.

4. Memories/Nostalgia: Going along with the above reason, almost every vintage treasure brings back a memory of some sort. Maybe it's of your Grandmother baking cookies, your mom getting dressed for a party, or your Grandpa reading you a story. No matter what memories are triggered, it's always nice to reminisce.

3. Support Charities: Many vintage treasures are discovered at donation centers which help out your city. Personally, I find the majority of my finds at Good Will and Salvation Army. It's a win/win situation - I get a treasure and support the community.

2. Recycling/Reusing: good for Environment! Enough said.

1. Less Expensive: More style and less expensive, what could be better then that? There are plenty of vintage shops on Etsy, like Happy Day Vintage, that sell vintage clothing, housewares, luggage and whatever else you can think of at a wallet friendly cost.

Going Green in the 70's

Who: Gloria - A young, single fashionista just living her fabulous life
What: A day in the life of ...
When: 1970
Where: Tampa, FL
Why: Because 1970's Fashion is so Groovy!

Gloria slips on her favorite green suit ready for a morning of sun and fun. She will be turning heads left and right as she sashays down the beach in this green and yellow Catalina Swimsuit.

Golden Brown and ready for a divine lunch date, Gloria throws on a gorgeous green sun dress and grabs her favorite green purse. Looking great in green Gloria is off to wow her gentleman friend and enjoy a lite lunch on the patio of her favorite local restaurant.

A morning at the beach and a lunch date, can it get much better then this?....if you're as fabulous as Gloria it gets much better. Gloria stops at home to find evening attire for a night of drinks and dancing with her girlfriends. Out of her closet Gloria pulls a yummy yellow nylon blouse from Cole of California. She straps on a great green leather belt and grabs a sleek green patent leather purse. Once again Gloria is looking good and ready to end her night having fun with her friends. Just another day in the fabulous life of Gloria.

Wondering how much it would cost to go green like Gloria? Let's recap Gloria's look:

1. Gold Wedge Sandals - Size 9M - Kenneth Cole $25.00
2. 1960s Green Patent Leather Purse - A Cutie - Great Mod Fashion $20.00
3. Perfect Summer and Spring Green Flowered Straw Purse - Tote Bag - Daisies $20.00
4. 1970s Bright Yellow Tunic Blouse - Large $30.00
5. 1970s Green and Yellow Print Catalina Swimsuit - Size 12 $30.00
6. A Cool Summer Breeze - 1970s Green Floral A Line Dress - Size 12 $30.00
Grand Total for this Look: $155.00
I know, shocking but true. Not only is Gloria a fashionista but she's smart with her money. No wonder she's living the good life!

Father's Day - For the Fly Daddy!

The word "Dad" used to bring to mind thoughts of a middle aged man wearing black socks with shorts and sandals. The modern day Dad is fashion savvy, knows the latest trends and how to work his "mojo". The modern day Dad plays in a band (or at least wishes he did).
The Dad of today doesn't want the standard tie from a department store. Get him something unique, retro, earth friendly, and inexpensive (you don't have to tell him the last part of the equation).
It just so happens YesterDaze is the perfect place to shop for your Dad this year. You're bound to find something your Dad never knew he wanted so badly.

For starters...Unique vintage shirts. Everything ranging from authentic Hawaiian, to Cowboy to Bowling shirts - and everything in between.

Maybe the Dad in your life needs a great pair of vintage pants, to match is new retro shirt. Check out just a couple of what YesterDaze has to offer.
On the left: "Vintage Lee Riders 5 Pocket Jeans" A great pair of vintage corduroy straight leg Lee Rider jeans.
On the right: "Disco Worthy 1970s Plaid Bell Bottom Pants"Authentic and amazing 12 wide bell bottoms from the 1970s

Your Dad is dressed to impress with no where to go. He may as well have a party with friends and family. But wait, he needs the perfect bar glasses...
It just so happens YesterDaze has a set of eight glasses that will make your Dad the Cat's Meow:

The "The Pussycat - Set of 8 Glasses - Classy Stuff for Your Home Bar" will be a big hit with your Dad, and all his friends.

Looking good and drink in hand your Dad starts to feel a little "corny" and decides to BBQ. Yester Daze has something for that as well:
The "It's BBQ Season - Time To Get Corny" set is only $20.00.

After good food, drinks, friends and family it's time for a night on the town. Will your Dad choose to accessorize his outfit with a fun, retro cowboy look:

or a more distinguished ensemble:
Which ever he picks he's looking good, having fun and the envy of his friends....thanks to you and YesterDaze.
