Louis Vuitton’s accessories are arguably the most coveted facet of the brand. Their Fall 2012 collection featured beautiful high-waisted silhouettes and sumptuous coats, and the buzz has been surrounding the accessories; namely the modern-day Edwardian hats. Marc Jacobs exaggerated the bucket shape while borrowing trims and accoutrements from the period, like feathers, ribbon, and brooches.
The Way We Wore has an extensive collection of vintage hats including cloches, fascinators, turbans, wide brims, Gibsons and more. Pictured below are two of our most fabulous Edwardian hats. Stop by and shop our chapeaus!
Zoe Kravitz stunned on the red carpet last week for The Dark Knight Rises premiere in New York City. Though not for the faint of heart, the illusion trend has been making it’s rounds on red carpets and runways alike.
Plunging peekaboos and sultry sheer inserts were favorites of designers during the decadent 1980′s. To modernize the trend,
a sexy look like this is best paired with sleek hair and minimal jewelry. Pictured above are two of our favorite illusion gowns from the 1980′s by Thierry Mugler and Carolyne Roehm!

The 1960′s and 1970′s were a Golden Age in traveling. So it’s only natural that when Banana Republic was commissioned to redesign the uniforms for flight attendants they referenced vintage silhouettes. Pencil skirts, feminine blouses, and cardigans were all a part of the new in-flight wardrobe.
Looking for travel-friendly vintage? We recommend 1970′s dresses and jumpsuits in jersey, they’re super comfortable for long flights and wrinkle free! Stop by The Way We Wore boutique and shop our 1970′s dresses and separates- and leave the sweat pants and Uggs on the ground!

It’s a typical day at The Way We Wore boutique: walk-in customers, brides, party- goers, red carpet requests, and appointments with designers. Doris stepped out for a bit, we all just assumed it was to run a few errands.
After about forty minutes she popped back in, grinning from ear to ear, her tiny frame hidden beneath armfuls of gowns! And that was just the beginning! Her SUV was overflowing with sequins, lace, brocade, taffeta, and rhinestones; rolling hills of maribou, chiffon, and tulle in delicate pastels and luxurious jewel tones. We were stunned! A 1950′s cocktail dress bonanza in under an hour! The pieces were acquired from a Hollywood actress known for her work in “Gone With the Wind”. 40 designer gowns including Balmain, Nettie Rosenstein and Sophie of Saks… all in about 40 minutes!
