Happy St. Patrick's Day Vintage Lovers.We hope you enjoyed a parade or drank a bit O' Irish beer in celebration. Maybe you saw a rainbow with all of this rain in the Bay Area. It sure did feel like Ireland today in San Francisco. I like to claim my Irish heritage and proudly wear green every St. Patrick's Day. I sure do feel lucky at the Alameda Point Antiques Faire every month and March was no exception. Every month is green at the Point with recycled and repurposed goods. Until we see you on April 1st...{April Fool's Day}, I wish you the luck of the... Continue reading

Don’t Mock the Mock Turtleneck!

Men should fall for turtlenecks in the fall. Turtlenecks get a bad rap over for their too ‘PTA-dad’ or dowdy professor look, but don't be fooled. Turtlenecks, in a matte color and a simple weave, are flattering and can appear downright sexy. There is one exception.

Colin Firth with his movie star good looks can barely get away with it. You are only allowed to wear that garment to an ugly christmas sweater party or if you are officially a grandparent. Pair a black turtleneck with a... Continue reading
