I am really, really happy to announce that the lovely Anna and Rachael from the online shop 'The Paraders Vintage' are hosting a $50 giveaway!!! The Paraders Vintage, an online vintage shop and blog, aims to provide a modern mix of lovely dresses and charming accessories.
Here's a bit more about the shop from Rachael:
Hello! I'm Rachael, creator of The Paraders - the online vintage shop of Chicago. The Paraders is full of wearable vintage from the 20s through the 80s that makes a girl look lovely and feel lovely too! Our blog compliments the shop style with "dating vintage clothing" posts, vintage buying and styling tips, and my adventures through and aside from the shop. As our shop expands into a full-blown independent website over the next month, please stay in touch with the Paraders to hear all about what it takes to jump from Etsy into a bigger, scarier market. Also, stay tuned for our Paraders s/s 2012 dress collection! Thanks so much for listening and have a wonderful day!
Here are a few of my favourites from their lovely vintage shop:
1930s dress Lanvin adaptation:
60s coat medium large:
