Spring Dressing

Written by ogo on . Posted in Brighter than springtime, Romantic & Seductive

What a long, cold winter it has been!  Winter came early, hit hard and stayed far too long.  That chic puffer coat you lusted for and the designer cashmere or alpaca that you splurged on have gone from treasured new favorites to reviled necessities.  Finally… it is time to shed those many layers and lighten up.  Nothing says spring like a light or brightly colored new dress.  Whether your inclination is to reach for pastels or primary brights, your mood and look will benefit instantly.

Some vintage styles are classics that work for many body types.  The 1960s A-line silhouette is timeless and ageless, when executed in a quality textile with fine tailoring.  Whether you opt for a modern rendition, or choose a high quality vintage piece, these dresses are wonderful additions to your permanent wardrobe.  The 1950s shirtwaist style is a favorite of trendy Gen-Xers, who style the dresses with imagination and flair.

Some of the dresses shown below are for sale at the OgoVintage etsy shop or OgoVintage ebay store.  Some have been sold and some have not yet been listed.  If one in particular speaks to you, please email OGO for assistance.

So… welcome spring, buy some fresh cut flowers, plant some kitchen herbs, meet a friend for an al fresco dinner or drinks, take the dog on a long stroll, pack up your winter wardrobe for another year and treat yourself to a pretty springtime frock!

Knit Dresses & Suits to stay warm and chic for winter

Written by ogo on . Posted in Romantic & Seductive, This girl is ALL BUSINESS

Don’t forego style to stay warm this winter.  The ease of a sweater dress or a knit suit ensemble makes winter dressing easy and practical.  OGO lived in Chicago once upon a time, where the wind chill factor dipped way below zero during cold winter spells.  Some insulated wool and/or silk blend tights, plus warmly lined boots, lined with fur or a synthetic blend, plus a warm knit sweater dress or knit ensemble, will keep you warm when paired with a good winter coat and layered cardigan or jacket, too.  Look for OGO’s upcoming posts featuring warm and stylish vintage and designer coats.

The Romance of Lace

Written by ogo on . Posted in Romantic & Seductive

There is a reason why many women choose wedding gowns made of lace.  The glorious Duchess of Cambridge had her friend Sarah Burton, for Alexander McQueen, create a wedding gown covered in lace, perhaps inspired by the lace wedding gown worn by Grace Kelly.  Lace adds instant femininity, on the romantic side in white or pale colors, and on the seductive side when done in black or a jewel tone.  Here are a few OgoVintage lace treasures, with the caption linked to the Etsy shop and the ebay store items available at the OgoVintage ebay store.

Some old-fashioned romance…

Written by ogo on . Posted in Romantic & Seductive

A little old fashioned romance goes a long way in this modern, technological world.  Nothing beats the charm of ecru lace, so easy to pair with a long black velvet skirt, or your favorite jeans.  Every stylish gal ought to have at least a few lace blouses in her permanent wardrobe to spice up those tailored pantsuits and classic separates, and let him know that you’re really not ALL business.  Which of these OgoVintage lace blouses do you prefer?
