Sheer Floral Retro Dress

Looking for a retro style frock that works for fall & winter with bright uplifting colors?  This Magenta Floral Sheer Kimono dress is a perfect pick!

Magenta Floral Kimono Dress

Made from a sheer magenta floral fabric, this dress is lined in all of the right places (don't worry!) and has see-thru sleeves, which is my favorite part of this dress!   The sleeves are flowing and become more open towards the end.

Retro Magenta Floral Dress

There is a nice sexy V-neckline with a contrasting navy floral fabric and the dress ties at the top of the shoulders in the back.  Available in sizes small, medium & large and the hem falls above the knee for average height gals.  With a elastic cinched waist, this dress is made for comfort too!

More fab winter 2012 styles to come and we will post new additions here on our blog, as well as our facebook page...AND on our home page!

Hurricane Sandy - Our Hearts Go Out to Those Affected

Last week's storm affected many on the east coast, and while we were affected with no electric or heat, that does not even compare to the loss & devastation endured by so many.  Our thoughts and hearts go out to all of those affected.

We have been donating non-perishable food items, baby supplies, & more for families on Long Island as well as donating to the American Red Cross.  If you would like to make a donation to the Red Cross, you can simply visit their website here:

You can text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief, which helps people affected by disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires and tornadoes.

We are collecting Backpacks for children affected by the hurricane for a few gals here on Long Island that are coordinating this and will distribute these to kids in need.  For every backpack we collect, we will give you a $15 credit to our store at  These will be distributed next week, and if you would like to send in a new or lightly used kids backpack, you can send them to us at:

Retro Hair Accessories Flowers

Good Evening friends of!  It's been a little while since our last post, but we are still here working behind the scenes and currently working on our new redesign for our store! 
We are working on adding updated & easy to use size charts & "how to measure" information, new descriptions on our products, including material descriptions as well.  Well, there's more to come, but for now lets get to some accessories!!

Hair Flowers are a growing trend today & what's not to love about a nice happy yellow daisy in your hair! Just pop a nice "pop" of color to your hair for a retro vibe and a girly touch.  The Daisies come in a variety of colors, from yellow as you see here to orange, blue, green and even polka dot! 

So maybe you want to go for a larger flower?  Make a bigger statement...Ok then, I have the flower for you!! Measuring 6.5" all around, try a light pink, or a hot pink peony.  Take a look, I personally love this one! 

Right?!  what do you think!?  Well, I love it! 

Adding Hair Flowers no matter how big or small will be a fabulous accessory to your retro look!  Don't be afraid to try out different flowers, different colors and sizes, have fun with it!
