Ever since I was a teen, I have always had an appreciation for the different decades of design, and I loved the 40’s and 50’s style clothing.

I also happened to be a lucky girl, because my grandparents after they retired, became antique dealers of costume jewelry, vintage clothing, and glassware.

In fact, I found my prom dress with my grandmother at a little vintage boutique in Northern Illinois. I knew when I saw that 50’s strap-less, pink, ruffled dress, it was the “one”! (I even had 80’s pink hair to match).

I am still on the lookout for unique clothing, home decor, and accessories and I wanted to share with you some retro finds on Amazon.    

Here you will find retro style clothing, shoes, jewelry, and gifts from the different era’s of the past.  (Of course, I can’t believe that the 80’s are now considered “retro”, but I still love the styles).  

Below is just a few holiday styles that I think are super cute, and would make a wonderful, personal, holiday gift for a mom, sister, daughter, or girlfriend.     


Elf Respect Sweater


City Adventure Crushed Velvet Leggings in Black


Crushed Velvet Leggings


Swing Vintage 1950s Cocktail Dress

Mary Jane Pumps

 Party Clutch Purse


Today, I am a mom of a 14-year-old fashionista, who is learning from her great-grandmother all of the wonderful history behind vintage jewelry and clothes.  

If you too have a passion for the styles of the past, and would like to try or give something unique this holiday season, take advantage of the these ongoing seasonal sales & coupons!  

Oh, one last thing, I still have that prom dress in storage at my mom’s, and I can’t wait to give it to my daughter someday.  Who knows, I may just have to upload a photo for all of you to enjoy!
