Suit Sharp by "Originala"

Originala was one of the better suit and coat houses located on Seventh Avenue in New York City and started in 1941 by the Bader Brothers. It was one of the most expensive coat lines made at the time. In the late 1960's the coats averaged about $500. (Text take from Vintage Fashion Guild)

Vintage Bed Jackets: The Sexy Way To Cover Up

I have really become very fond of bed jackets and have started a mission to collect for myself and to make available for purchase on the website. These cute, soft-looking cover ups have been around since the 19th century known for keeping warm, walking around the house or just to fall asleep in, and knowing today's street-style, I won't be surprise if one day we see these lovely vintage pieces paired with a cute pair of jeans and some sexy ankle strap heels.
