Falling for Vintage
Posted on November 3, 2018
What is it about classics that transcend time, fads, and trends? Whether clothes, books or luggage, classic timeless moments call for vintage accessories. Destinations such as Paris and Florence are classics in their own right. Both cities create an atmosphere that you have been transported back to a simpler and less complicated lifestyle. We love to travel and use these inspirations to shape and create a feeling of old world charm.
Season’s embrace us and create the same sense of warmth and style as our classic staples. Fall is the perfect time to experience a crisp, nostalgic stroll through a park or a long over due chat to reconnect with friends or loved ones. There is something so enchanting around a fireside discussion with a bottle of wine or two……Fall naturally makes us want to cozy up to a classic book or movie. Social media aside, there is nothing like losing ourselves in a beautiful story of love and determination either between a few hundred pages or on the big screen.
We love to wander through cobblestone streets that share a history and beauty of what it must have been like to live there from the beginning. Developing out of this enticing itinerary and the road less traveled are our ideas for vintage luggage and handbags. Sometimes dressing the part actually makes one feel like you are meandering beyond the label of “tourist”. Provence and Tuscany are made up of hundreds of hillside towns that keep us coming back with stunning scenery and even more enchanting “locals” to meet.
Scenery aside, what evokes a classic lifestyle more than traditional, simple dishes. Meals that are organic and colorful often inspire us to create the same with our collections. Have you had a soft, creamy gelato recently? Inspiration really does come from anything whether intentional or not. Soft colors are versatile and seasonless and remind us of special moments we treasured while meandering through leafy vineyards, town squares or bustling markets.
Fall is also a time to slow down and wrap up….we take this idea literally and love traveling with our reversible wraps! Wine tasting through Tuscany can sometimes be chilly as the temperatures transition into Autumn. Sitting at a bistro table watching the world go by with a delicious Chianti Classico and a warm wrap are two indulgences that are hard to give up! Two simple classics perfect for savoring sweet moments of the local flavor and climate!
Where do you “Fall” into for style? Are you a vintage, timeless seeker of all things classic and simple? Are you enticed by old stone houses and ragged slate roofs? Do detours on your travels take you through imposing arches or along lush green pastures? Is it your favorite time of year? The beauty of it all is to find inspiration no matter where the town, what the season or which dish you try. Find it at home, find it abroad…..travel can take lovely, winding paths created by you with those you know and those you encounter for the first time. We hope you embrace the beauty of stylish travel and that it will make you apart of the environment your passing through, not just a tourist passing by.
Remember~ Travel Often.Travel Pretty.
