A Vintage Tale

Sunday, May 05, 2019 Simone - Your Style Architect 6 Comments

Walking into A Vintage Tale was like a kid entering a candy store! I soaked up the myriad of colours and the loudness of the outfits which screamed " Florals, Patterns & Colours" but it was beautiful. I identified with so many of the accessories and clothes there, even guilty of forcing mom and grandma through the years to throw out what they considered treasures and I, rubbish... due to the lack of space. I was never one to truly appreciate vintage and retro till in recent months.

Perhaps it is me getting older, perhaps it is the need to hang on to the past ( subconsciously) for comfort. Nonetheless, we learn so much with the evolution of fashion and certainly a vintage store would be the best to learn all about fashion history ( and the same for furniture and home decor too). Amazing how these industries all tie in together.

Midollino Bags 

Dress : A Vintage Tale
Bag : Midollino - A Vintage Tale
Shoes : ZARA
Earrings: old ( mom's from the 60s)
Hats : A Vintage Tale

Nonetheless, I was glad to meet the owner Azurra who used to work in major fashion and designer houses back in Italy for many years and only recently in her relocation to Singapore did she miss the whole vibe and hype of this division of the fashion industry that she decided to setup A Vintage Tale. She travels round the world regularly to source for items to sell at her store and Azurra has kindly given us a hint that as we speak a shipment of Midollino bags would be arriving around 18 May 2019 to the store which will mean great stuff for the take then! If you are based in Singapore, please save this date and do pop into their boutique on Joo Chiat Road to get your hands on one of these bags.

Many fashion houses have showcased rattan, cane and straw bags for Spring Summer 2019 and this would fall perfectly in line with this year's trend just short of it being brand new but packed with loads of character in each item. I had the pleasure of playing dress up trying on various dresses, overcoats, hats and styling them with their range of accessories. It would so fun and of course, I too walked out of there with some goodies for my own keeping.

I hope you like this particular green dress from the 70s which I had purchased from them and do note that this weekend they are hosting a 30 - 70% Sale at the store.

Have fun and hope you can share with me in your comment below if you managed to visit the boutique and what treasure you had brought home.
