We are proud to partner with Fashion Delivers and donate some of our merchandise to the victims of the recent Tornado in Oklahoma. The Fashion Delivers Charitable Foundation is a nonprofit organization which has been organizing donations from merchants and manufacturers across the country to obtain clothing and other items for those who were displaced by the Tornadoes. Fashion Delivers was founded in 2005 to help battle the effects of poverty and natural disaster by supporting hundreds of community-based social service agencies throughout the U.S. and around the world. They have distributed over $100 million of men’s and women’s clothing and home furnishings since inception. Vintage Fringe donated clothing to Fashion Delivers which should hopefully reach the Oklahoma recipients in the coming weeks. At Vintage Fringe our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have been negatively impacted by the Oklahoma Tornadoes and hope that they will be able to rebuild as quickly as possible.
Velvet by Graham & Spencer tops are a must have for your wardrobe. The Velvet collection is at its core an upscale tee shirt brand, but their collections always take traditional looks to new heights with distinctive fabrics and styles and it doesn’t take much observation to realize that they are so much more than a contemporary tee shirt line. Some of our favorite pieces by Velvet are their dresses, leggings and jackets, but of course their tops certainly do not disappoint. Here are a few of our favorite Velvet by Graham and Spencer Tops which are currently available at Vintage Fringe.
The Ramona Dolman Sleeve Top is a total must have shirt if you love the dolman sleeve style as much as we do. The dolman sleeve tops are always a favorite because of their spin on the over-sized sweatshirt style combined with a fitted shirt look. The Ramona features an luxurious waffle weave pattern which gives it a great texture and a dressy, distinctive style. The top is meant to look over-sized, and it is super comfortable to wear, while still being delicate and lightweight. The top is available in both Heather Grey and White and is perfect to wear in fall/spring weather or depending on your preference even on a cool summer day.
Next the Grace 3/4 Sleeve Top really typifies a classic tee shirt style amped up with a bit of added feminine flair. The top itself is a straightforward scoop neck with 3/4 length sleeves. The stylish twist that is typical of great Velvet brand tops comes with the rouching on one side of the top. The top also has a long length hitting below the hips. The Grace top is part of Velvet’s Gauzy Whisper collection which features a thinner cotton fabric with a touch of spandex giving this top the perfect amount of cling or fit. I am also a big fan of the Red Vine color. It is a total stand out and a great top for spring/summer.
Another great top for summer, the Bianca Dolman Top takes the classic striped top to another level. With dolman sleeves and an over-sized fit this top is perfectly stylish. The top also features diagonal stripes on each side that contrast the horizontal stripes in the center which is a great twist on the classic striped top. The top is narrower at the bottom than at the top which is typical of the traditional dolman style. The Tide green stripes are also the must have color this season. The Bianca top is sheer and the stripes are contrasted with an ivory/oatmeal color. This is a great top to wear with jeans or a skirt this summer.
These are just a few examples of some of our latest favorite tops by Velvet this season. As you can see these tops really do transcend from being just classic tee shirts to trendsetting statement pieces that you can truly wear everyday. Of course these tops are just a few of our favorites and there are so many more amazing stylish Velvet tops to choose from. What are some of your favorites?
