Are you planning a vintage wedding? Looking for the perfect invitation to complement your big day’s vintage vibe, but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg? Why not print your own for FREE, and put the money you saved towards more champagne?? We think yes.
Here are four of our favourite free printable wedding invitation sources from around the interwebz:
We love this site because you can customize each invitation with your own colours. Another huge plus is the super-easy-to-use editing page that’ll have you gleefully printing your invitations in no time.
With many types of invitations and cards to choose from, this site has you covered for everything from the engagement party to the bachelorette to the post-wedding brunch (and, of course, oodles of great wedding invitations).
You love your home. You want to do everything you can to make it look nice, to give it that extra special vintage touch. But you’re on a tight budget. What to do? Well, it’s very likely that if this is your situation, a large percentage of your furniture came straight from the pages of Ikea.
Yes, their clean, classic design is unparalleled. But though there are many reasons to love IKEA (a restaurant INSIDE the store, you say?!), one of the undeniable downsides is knowing that everyone else has the same FLÖRGG as you.
“Hey, that’s my FLÖRGG!”
Well, not anymore! With the (completely mind-blowing) Ikea customization site PANYL, you can choose from hundreds of finishes to add to your favorite furniture, including wood grain, patterns, and the season’s latest colors. For a vintage look, choose teak woodgrain drawer fronts, or why not avacado green shelf lining? Modern, bold patterns (like the robin’s egg blue Moroccan print Expedit above) are another great option to add character to your space.
Just think of it – no messing around with painting, sanding, gluing – no mess at all, in fact! It’s basically a giant sticker. Who doesn’t love stickers? You love stickers. And you love IKEA! It’s a match made in heaven.
The last week of November is already upon us! Where has the time gone? Soon enough we’ll be stuffing stockings and sipping eggnog by the fire…
BUT, before all that, why not freshen up your style for the holiday season at Vintage POP – a Montreal pop-up shop featuring the collections of thirteen local vintage curators – taking place throughout the month of November at 3790 Saint-Laurent.
This unique event, put on by the POP Montreal International Music Festival, brings together a diverse group of vintage collections, including our own Soubrette fall/winter collection.
The Edwardian period was a turning point in fashion history; the Victorian ideal of strict, structured dress met the beginnings of a softer, more lighthearted view of fashion. Young people were anxious to shed not only the physical constraints of the “old” style, but also the social mores that up to that time had been intrinsically linked to clothing in general. It was a time of breaking through limitations, both physical and philosophical.
The fashions that resulted from these social growing pains became more flamboyant, with designers trying radically new and different silhouettes, colours, and textures. They broke rules left and right, pushing the envelope of what was considered ‘acceptable’.
Here are several beautiful Vogue pattern sketches and George Barbier drawings, illustrating the contrasting styles of the decade.
