Summer in California can be magical. The sun is so bright it seems to make everything sparkle. On a Saturday afternoon in Santa Monica, the vintage-loving crowd didn’t really need any help looking bright and cheerful in their retro threads as they gathered for a rare daytime event that included a fashion show from Unique Vintage and entertainment from the Satin Dollz, and wild, swingin’ dance moves from the Hollywood Hotshots.
Taking place poolside at the Shangri-La Hotel, with the sweet sounds of the Dean Mora Band and DJ Dr. Nate playing in the background, the acts rotated from singing numbers, the fashion show and dances. It was never a dull moment and I’m not even counting the great people watching in the fine-dressed crowd. The leader of the Satin Dollz took a moment to thank everyone for coming and marking their 10th anniversary by stating Los Angeles has the country’s best vintage scene. Well I can vouch that it certainly is a lot of fun! And it was a good opportunity to wear my new Voodoo Vixen spectacle-print dress with the cross-strap detail I love! Check out the pix:
Summer has kicked into high gear and it always makes me think of nautical prints to reflect going out by the sea and cooling off from the hot temperatures. I rounded up a collection for you to say, “Anchors away!” to summer good times! These women’s fashion pieces from Unique Vintage work with a vintage-inspired look or a modern look with a nod to classic style.

In my previous post, I showed how-to put together a look with Myrtlewood. Today, I styled a look around Bea+Dot, a playful line that can be worn out ‘n’ about during the day or for fun nights out with the girls or clubbing.
Here’s how to style a look around a Bea+Dot dress from Modcloth:
The fun, A-line silhouette and detailing of the “Playing Tagline” dress* will give you a mod look in a wearable way that can take you from your day job to a nightclub. Pair with some accessories that embrace your inner child such as a smiling handbag*, owl wallet* and pencil bracelet.* The chic tortoiseshell sunglasses* will protect your eyes, while a pop of bright red, patent wedges* on your toes keep you grounded.
