When we saw this picture of Grace Kelly wearing this elegant patterned top, at first it reminded us of a Sweet Pea top. Sweet 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.
Empire Waist tops are very popular this upcoming winter. We’re seeing lots of empire waists that are long creating a modern twist on the tunic style tops. We think this style of top is a mainstay of creating a vintage style look.
One of our favorites at Vintage Fringe is the Vevina top from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. We love the empire waist, the length, and the buttons used for accents on the sleeves and neckline. It has a fitted bohemian style top that gives you that sophisticated, yet casual look. This top is currently available in white, brown (mushroom), pink, and black.
Another great empire waist style top at Vintage Fringe is the Discharge top by AlixK. The AlixK line features a distinctive fabric with a silk cotton blend and unique hand made embroidery on every top.
They also pay so much attention to the details on the tops with each shirt featuring things like gathered turtlenecks or darts on the bodice. What we love about the Discharge is the empire waist and design currently available in Black with Grey embroidery and Brown and Lighter Brown embroidery. We also have it in Ivory with ivory embroidery that will be available for sale next week. We hate struggling with some turtlenecks in getting them to stay in the right place. We love the gathered turtleneck that just falls in place on its own. You’ll also love the gathered cuffs on the sleeves giving this top another added feminine detail.
These are just a few of our favorite empire waist pieces currently available at Vintage Fringe.
