If money was no object, I'd definitely buy the 1970s vintage SMOCKED smokey PURPLE dress. Beautiful color, perfect for summer. Romantic, youthful, everything I love about clothes from that era.

Allegra said...

I love the paisly dress, as well as the red 1940's. so darling!

I would like to see some HATS from the 70s. I love hats, and you have a great eye for the 1970s.

stephanie said...

What a great give-away! If money and size (!) was no object I would want the yellow grecian beaded chiffon dress. It's gorgeous! But since size (sigh!) is important I'd go for the blue rhinestone penadant/necklace. It's so beautiful.

leilani.e said...

I've had this dress in my cart for ages, green and bows and velvet? yes please! Great shop by the way, I love the collaboration with SJV!

If I could buy anything in your shop and money was no object, I would buy the 1950's vintage pale peach shirtwaist dress. It's perfectly precious, and would definitely stand out.

Your shop is full of such gorgeous clothing!

I would buy the white tulle lace bow vintage wedding dress, because it reminds me of my grandmother's, a beautiful confection of vintage beauty.

Vanessa said...

-I would buy the 1950s paisley print dress, because the fabric is so beautiful.

-I would love to see some vintage ladies slacks, a la Katherine Hepburn in your shop - those are hard to find!

LoveCharlesVintage said...

If you could add any item or category to the shop that we aren't currently selling, what would it be?
I'd be nice to see some shoes for sale! Especially boots. I love your selection of dresses! Shoes and dresses are the two categories that I never fail to check.

BARGAIN BEX said...

I've decided to answer Question #1:

If I could pick any item in your shop (with money being no object) it would undoubtedly be The 70s Vintage White Cotton Eyelet Wedding Dress.

Do I plan on getting married any time soon? No, but I couldn't help but keep going back to its simple prettiness when looking through all of the lovelies in your shop. It's the perfect definition of how I want to look if and when I decide to be a bride-to-be, and until that day comes, I would be honored to have it hanging on one of my bedroom walls as a piece of unbelievably gorgeous art.

Just so darn pretty.

Katie said...

I would buy the 1940s vintage BLUE and GRAY spray PRINT dress. It reminds me of my mother's blue and white polish pottery collection.

laura said...

Like I said on the SJV blog post, where has this shop been my whole life, I love it!!!

ok so if I could, I would love to buy the 1970's vintage red gauze daisy sundress, though it might be too tight and would overwhelm my figure because I'm very petite, but I love it anyways! If it was an item where I wouldn't have to worry about size, I'd say the reconstructed multi chain vintaage necklace with flower. :)
One thing I'd love to see in the store: a boater hat! I've been looking for a good boater hat for AGES.
Oh, and I'm also following this blog, following on twitter (I'm withviolets there as well).
Great giveaway, thanks! :)

Zohar said...

also,i'd love seeing an equally wonderful selection of earlier stuff such as 30s knits and 20s dresses as you have such wonderful picks. ooh,and shoes!

Mystery Flight Vintage said...

wow! your shop is amazing. the 1950's green paisley frock is my absolute dream dress. so so beautiful. with your outstanding sense of style and many divine 40's/50's and 60's dresses, I'd love to see a selection of shoes to accessorise with. your handmade pieces are just adorable, by the way. great work.

Willa said...

I can't imagine when I'd where it, but I definitely want to walk around wearing the 1960s vintage CREAM brocade VELVET bows DRESS! Also, vintage shoes would be an excellent category to add! Whenever I've tried to thrift shoes it's been rather unsuccessful :(

Oh wow, I do hope this competition is open to international readers cos there are SO MANY beautiful items in the shop! It's really hard to pick just one as my favourite, but if I had to, it'd be the 1960s YELLOW grecian BEADED chiffon VINTAGE dress - I love it!!

Liz said...

Oh goodness, I have to choose just one item?? Is that possible? I have like 12 tabs open with different pieces and all of them are breaking my heart their so adorable.

But the 1960's yellow and white lace party dress is just so amazingly perfect. I have no words for how much I love this dress. *sigh* I'm going to go imagine that I own something remotely as beautiful.

I'll go ahead and answer both:

I love the red printed multi strap vintage dress, but sadly it's too big for me -- I suppose I would just have it altered if money were no object!

I'd also love to see hats in the shop.

I'm a subscriber of the email list and follower of the blog as well.

Thanks for the giveaway!

The cowboy boot necklace is perfect! My husband has a cowboy boot tattoo and while I'm not ready to take that plunge, I'd love the necklace to make me think of him whenever I'd wear it (which would be probably every day).

I like this dress: http://www.etsy.com/listing/45899381/1940s-vintage-red-dress-with-lace-and. It reminds me of something Chuck would wear on Pushing Daisies.
I wish you guys had a hat category, as I have been looking for cute vintage hats.

unamore said...

I would like to answer both :)

1. If you could buy one item for yourself from our shop and money was no object, what would it be? I already bought it <3 YELLOW silk CHIFFON grecian VINTAGE dress

2. If you could add any item or category to the shop that we aren't currently selling, what would it be? Antique furniture 1930's-40's maybe glassware too!

Natalie said...

I have never found a vintage boutique with more items that I've fallen in love with. I discovered Salvage Life at Unique LA last month, (meanwhile --running low on monthly funds) and still could not resist this beautiful old necklace they had on display. HAD to have it. It was made from pieces from an old turn of the century belt.
I have gotten more compliments on it than anything I've ever worn! I'm in love and can't wait to visit the shop!

Amanda Gagne said...

I would definitely buy the 1950's navy blue strapless dress with the eyelet fabric. It is beautiful! Then I would of course need to have the vintage cluster blue rhinestone necklace to go with it.

Jana said...

It is so hard to pick just one item, but if money were no object, I would love to buy the 1940's white eyelit dress full skirt. It was a toss up between that and the 1940's vintage blue and gray spray print dress. I love these classic feminine pieces!!!

Irene said...

It would be nice to see a section for vintage swimsuits! It's getting warm around here and all I can think about is finding the perfect vintage swimsuit for summer!

Tiara said...

Oooh! so many choices! If money was no object I'd buy that beautiful One-sleeve blue and white sun dress... but since i dont see that in the shop my second choice would be the 1940's Champagne lace dress with rhinestones and pearls!!! gorgeous!
