The Ultimate Holiday Top from Zooey by Alice Heller

Zooey by Alice Heller has done it again!  She has designed a fabulous top that we think will be a must have for all fashionistas this holiday season.  We’re referring to the black satin trim cardigan top that is so versatile.

It can easily work as a cardigan over your dress to the holiday party, yet still looks amazing when worn with jeans.  With the contrasting satin trim around the collar, the body of the top, and the tie, this top has that dressy, sophisticated look while also being super soft and made from a supima cotton modal blend making it so comfortable.  What we love even more about this awesome fabric is that it is also machine washable.   We love the 3/4 length sleeves that also add to the versatility as it doesn’t have to be worn only in the winter.   Zooey’s creative use of contrasting fabrics never neglects the basics.

Signature tops such as their wide v neck available in every sleeve length makes Zooey by Alice Heller’s tops a fashion trend for a variety of tops including those everyday basic tops that even fashionistas can’t live without.

Velvet Brand Clothing Popular Patterns

This season Velvet Brand clothing has a variety of tops with patterns that are so popular.  Continuing with our blog themes of patterns and turtlenecks, we wanted to discuss this Ceann turtleneck and what made it “fringeworthy.” The style of this top is distinctive.  To be more specific, this Ceann turtleneck top from Velvet by Graham and Spencer features a variety of details that make this an excellent addition to any wardrobe.  The pattern available here with Plum and Ivory is extremely striking.

In our opinion, it is the perfect way to wear the ever popular plum color this season.  What we love even more is that the style of top is just as striking with flared cuffs at the end of the sleeves.  A twist in many Velvet brand clothing tops, both the cuffs and the turtleneck are slightly gathered giving it a flared, flowing look.  We also love that they aren’t tight, which when it comes to turtlenecks is never a plus.  We love the 3/4 length sleeve another part of the fabulous style of Velvet brand clothing.  We also love the loose fit at the waist continuing that fluid look a nice change of pace from many of those tight fitted tops.  The fabric here is absolutely amazing as well.  Made with a Rayon Spandex blend, this fabric is luxuriously soft and feels absolutely amazing on.  This is the first of several patterns from Velvet by Graham and Spencer that you’ll see here at Vintage Fringe.  A welcome style trend that you’ll find this season.

Splendid Roses

Splendid Brand clothing is known for their fabulous fabrics, but also for their hip, stylish patterns.  One of our favorite patterns is the black rose pattern featured on this ivy green empire waist v neck top.  Such patterns are yet another great tribute to vintage styles.  This pattern is more subdued than the aforementioned twist on the animal print by Sweet Pea, but for that feminine, stylish look, you can’t go wrong with this classic top by Splendid Brand Clothing.   Speaking of patterns, what is more feminine than roses?

We love the additional feminine touches Splendid adds including the contrasting pattern on the v neck, the cuffs, and the hem.  Nothing is more feminine than an empire waist.   We like the fitted look created in this top, a slight contrast from many modern empire waist tops with looser fits.  The black rose print combined with the ivy green color also creates a distinctive contrast.  Green is currently such a popular color this season as are good patterns.   Last, but certainly not least, this top is extremely comfortable and we love the length of this top.  Depending on your body type, this type typically falls below the hips.

In short, we love the feminine pattern, the style and the color another fabulous piece by Splendid!

Wild about Sweet Pea

We are wild about Sweet Pea at Vintage Fringe and now with one of their latest prints in this fashionable hoodie, you can be too.  We love the pattern.

A great twist on the ever-popular, but almost overdone animal prints, this bold Sweet Pea pattern takes a bold, but new approach with splashes of pink and gold along with the black and ivory.  With contrasting black trim at the bust creating a drawstring empire waist giving it that added feminine style.  And we can’t forget the hoodie, a fabulous Sweet Pea detail the interior of the hoodie is in contrasting solid black.

You’ll love the hoodie, the drawstring empire waist, and the v neck.  All of these things give us a number of reasons to love Sweet Pea brand clothing and the distinctive styles and patterns that keep us coming back for more!

This Sweet Pea top typifies the mission of Vintage Fringe to find feminine, trendy, vintage style designer clothing that is loaded with details and certainly not like every other top you’ll find at those chain stores.

Sweet Pea Apparel vs. AlixK – You decide

When we saw this picture of Grace Kelly wearing this elegant patterned top, at first it reminded us of a Sweet Pea topSweet Pea Apparel is an amazing designer and we love their vintage style.    In particular we love the unique prints that make their tops so distinctive and the combination of unique styles that make all of Sweet Pea’s tops look non-traditional, but elegant at the same time.

Then as we looked at this picture a little longer we thought it also reminded us of an AlixK top.  With AlixK’s signature handmade embroidery on each of its tops in patterns similar to that seen on Grace’s top, we couldn’t help but draw a comparison.

When we wrote this entry we were torn as to which designer clothing item this reminded us of more.  Sweet Pea or AlixK?  And we couldn’t pick just one.  So in honor of the democratic country in which we live, we decided we would leave it up to the popular vote and let you decide.

Either way, we are pleased that at a minimum this Grace Kelly top just serves to remind us that much of Vintage Style truly is timeless.

Velvet Brand Clothing Timeless Turtlenecks

Velvet Brand Clothing

Velvet Brand Clothing

We love Velvet Brand Clothing and this week we’re continuing our turtleneck series about the designers we carry with timeless turtlenecks.  We wanted to highlight one of our favorites from Velvet by Graham and Spencer.

Currently one of our new arrivals, we love the look of the Velvet Catelina top featuring a turtleneck with additional accent details.  The actual turtleneck is meant to be more akin to your traditional turtleneck with the foldover, but it isn’t tight or restrictive, it actually fits just right.  In addition, we love the “fringe” details with the pleats around the neckline giving it a feminine touch and some added style.  Part of Velvet Brand Clothing’s Baby Jersey collection, this machine washable baby jersey cotton feels so soft and is so comfortable to wear.  We also love the length as it has long sleeves and the top falls generally below the hips depending on your body type.  Currently available in Pink (Shown), Ivory (Soy), and Plum (Currant).

Zooey clothing features timeless turtlenecks that while they are generally timeless pieces for your fall and winter wardrobes, we also love the updated stylish twists designers like Zooey have incorporated into the modern, hip turtleneck.  Even Audrey Hepburn made turtlenecks look fashionable!

Here’s what we love about the one of the different styles of turtlenecks that we feature at Vintage Fringe, today we’re highlighting the turtlenecks by Zooey.  First we love Zooey’s loose version of the turtleneck.  The turtleneck itself isn’t tight or restrictive, is actually a loose fit which allows it to just naturally fall around the neck providing a hip and stylish look.

Next, we love the length of all of these Zooey tops, they all fit well below the waist so you don’t have to worry about that uncomfortable feeling as your top crawls up throughout the day.  Available at Vintage Fringe in a variety of colors including: black, brown, dark grey, grey, ivory, light grey, plum (shown) and white.  All of these Zooey tops are made from an amazingly soft supima cotton; these tops wear well and are super comfortable.
