Pretty in Pink***

It had to have been 75 degrees here today & what better way to embrace this lovely Spring weather than with one of these pretty pink sundresses?!  It's impossible not to have a smile on your face when you wear one of these.  It's something about the color pink, at least to me, that immediately brightens my mood.  And without being too overly frilly or little girl cute, these 3 dresses have just the right amount of charm.   After the week I've had, I think I'll try wearing pink to brighten my Friday! :)

♥ 60's Embroidered Mini Swing Dress ♥

♥ 60's Floral Hawaiian Dress ♥

All will be added to the boutique in the next couple days! :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Daughters of the Revolution**

I absolutely adore these Daughters of the Revolution sun dresses. Their beautiful floral prints, hippie inspired silhouettes, and lovely sheer fabrics are perfect for Spring! Designed by Malibu native Emily Cadenhead it was very interesting to learn that they are also dyed in chemical-free vegetable dyes. I can imagine wearing one of these as I walk barefoot down a beach....

 Although at $250 a piece, I may have to settle for the vintage version. At least for right now. Here are the best vintage substitutes I could find....

'70s Sheer Floral Dot Dress - $44

And my personal favorite...

And although neither of these are maxis, I fell in love with both of them!

Spring Fever**

What a wonderful warm week it was here, warm enough to wear little spring dresses without a cardigan! It's funny how yesterday was officially the first day of Spring & I walked outside this morning and BRRRRR it was freezing! It is super overcast and windy, it almost felt like I was at the beach or something... Oh well I guess it won't be as hard to stay inside and be productive when I'm not distracted by the sun shinning through my window, filling my head with thoughts about what better things I could be doing outside! :)

p.s. Isn't this photograph from Jim-AR's photostream absolutely amazing??  The vibrant complimentary colors bring it to life along with the shadows & glows of the background.  I only strive to take photograph like this!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend,

I never used flickr very often before, but have recently realized how amazing some of the photographs really are.  I spent some time this morning just browsing through vintage inspired photographs and stumbled upon these lovely pics on amalinny's photostream.  I love the last one, the use of depth of field really makes it feel like an old photograph.  Now I want to go find a deserted drive-in or other old semi-creepy place to take some pics.  I've always loved old abandoned houses, although there aren't too many around Napa, wouldn't be too great for tourism I guess....

*Kiss me I'm Irish*

This is my official blog debut.  This photo was taken yesterday, just as the sun was about to set on the way to my parents house for dinner.  The dress is a little 1960's plaid mini with the cutest little buttons.  I'm kinda glad it hadn't sold yet because it fit me great & was perfect for St. Patty's Day!!  The grass & hills behind me were such a bright green that it totally reminded me of Ireland... although, I've never been.  The red in my hair totally stood out against the green dress & the setting sun.  I can't believe I used to be blonde!

The Feminine Fifties!

I'd have to say that little 1950's day dresses so far are my favorite! Their cute little prints, adorable feminine details, fitted waists, & flaring skirts are addicting.  Some of these remind me of getting dressed up for Easter as a small child, except with a bit more class and a bit less frilliness! Either way I'm looking forward to finding that perfect Easter dress. Too bad most of these cuties are too small around the waist for me to squeeze into. :( Oh well, hopefully each dress will find someone who will enjoy them as much as I have!

I ♥ them all! :)

Au revoir!

It's not the economy - A Little Positive Encouragement For A Change!!

A lot of people may think that I've choose to open Vintage Rose Clothing at the worst possible time due to the recession, but here is a very nice & encouraging blog post about how many small business owners may be using the "bad" economy as a scape goat for other reasons why their store may be slow. And although I don't have the funds to hire a business coach like this specific blogger, it is this post as well as many others that seem to brighten my day & encourage me that I can be successful! I know that I have a lot to learn, but I also know that there are a lot of knowledgeable & extremely successful business women specifically on Etsy who already have & will continue to encourage me! And who also will share their advice on what I can do to better my boutique.  Click here for the encouraging post! 

Plus I'm having fun! And thats more than I can say of my last job! :)

Tonight's additions:

♥ $45 ♥

Flirty little 1950's Leaf Print Day Dress
♥ $39 ♥

Longing for Spring....

Although I've been stuck in the house sick for the past 2 days, looking forward to the Spring weather has seemed to make up for it! So here are a couple more bags that just make me long to walk on the beach or take a nice stroll downtown, these two along with the crochet clutch are all available in my boutique now! ♥ Vintage Rose Clothing

Still Sick... :(

Although I'm still feeling under the weather after about a week, I did manage to enjoy one night in Tahoe with my love.  What a wonderful place to take a break & relax!  The water is so peaceful & stunning in the winter.  Happy Friday my lovelies! ♥

ps.  As promised the crocheted clutch will be up in my boutique this evening!  I've also added a couple 50's Spring dresses to get you in the mood for the warming weather!

Rain Rain Go Away....

As it continues to rain & look dreary outside, I can't help but long for Summer. This morning, I couldn't help but smile when the sun happened to peek from behind the clouds... even if just for a minute. And what better way to welcome the sun than with a bright hued maxi dress. Although I haven't figured out exactly how to pull one off yet, I can imagine a nice breezy summer day on the beach wearing one of these, a pair of flat strappy sandals, and this lovely crocheted clutch! (Speaking of which will be up in the store in a few days).

♥ Forever 21 Floral Chiffon & Lace Maxi ♥

♥ Vintage 1970's Floral Maxi ♥
Ebay - $14.09

♥ Vintage Sheer Dot Maxi ♥
Ebay - $9.99

Etsy - $54

These are just a few of my favorites.  I can't help but love the chiffon and adorable black lace details here, or the original 70's hippie bohemian look in this one.  My favorite find of the day however is this one, not only does it have a starting bid of only $9.99, but the delicate sheer material & intricate lace details are completely adorable!   This floral maxi might be a better choice though if the sun has left you, like me, craving classic Spring pastels.

P.S.  It's almost FriDaY!! :)

Hello my Lovelies!

Hello everyone out there!  ♥ 

I thought I would start off this blog with a little introduction.  My name is Tiffany Hagewood and I currently live in the lovely Napa Valley.  After spending the past 5+ years in the restaurant industry with a crazy alcoholic boss, I realized that true happiness is worth more in the long run than any amount of money I was making there! It has always been a dream of mine to open a Vintage boutique, which is where Vintage Rose Clothing began.  Although I will also be taking on a part time job, my goal is to slowly build up my business so that I can finally return to school full time in the hopes of pursuing a degree in Motion Graphic Design. 

Right now I am a one women show.  I do everything myself except for a little help from by business partner pictured below.... :)

He absolutely loves when I get shipments! :) ♥

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
