Turns out that back in the 1920s there was speakeasy in Washington D.C. that served its bootleg cocktails in a treehouse. It was named the […]
So after my recent post on vintage picnics, I had a chance to put together one of my own! Some friends and I recently attended the Second Annual 1920s Lawn Party at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, Ma. The event is truly the “cat’s pajamas” with the majority of attendees dressed in clothing inspired […]
Not only are vintage themed weddings a growing trend, but vintage themed proms are becoming very popular as well! How fun for young ladies to dress up in a glamorous Old Hollywood Style for prom night. It really does my little vintage loving heart good to see this, rather than some of the more “modern” prom fashions that leave so little to the imagination! And our customer Jenny Pless Houser was kind enough to […]
Vintage themed weddings are a hot trend. And why not? Picking a favorite decade to plan your special day around adds a whole new element of fun to the celebration. And recently, due to the popularity of shows like Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey and the movie remake of the Great Gatsby, the Roaring Twenties has been on the minds of many brides to be.

But until then, here’s a behind the scenes video of Janette and her talented team working their magic, starring our favorite flapper and Gatsby style dresses. Enjoy […]
This past Sunday I made my way up to the Crane Estate on Castle Hill in Ispwich, Mass to attend a 1920s Lawn Party put on by Boston Swing Central. First let me say, this was, without a doubt, one of the most fun events I’ve ever attended. And I attend a lot of vintage themed events!
The venue was spectacular, being as it was held on the grounds of this historic seaside estate. […]
Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, The Artist and the Great Gatsby have exposed a whole new generation to the sophistication and glamour of the 1920s. So it’s no surprise more and more brides are jumping on the bandwagon and planning high style art deco weddings. Because Roaring Twenties fashions have such a romantic, feminine flair, with their floaty handkerchief hems, dropped waistlines, long strands of pearls, beaded details, and statement making hair accessories and hats, they […]

Just add ropes of pearls, long gloves, a cloche hat or feather headband, beaded purse and Mary Jane heels and head on out to your favorite speakeasy for a night of charleston dancing and chugging the bootleg […]
Check out this swanky photo of Blue Velvet Vintage customer, Karla, wearing one of our beaded flapper style dresses as the bridesmaid in her best friend’s 20s themed wedding. Karla’s husband also got into the spirit looking quite dapper in his 1920s vintage suit and bow tie. Looks like he just stepped out of an episode of Boardwalk Empire. Nucky Thompson’s got nothing on this guy!
Karla told us, “[…]
