LOL Fawlty Towers, Maybe the Worst of 70s Fashion

A couple weeks ago, I binge-watched all the episodes of "Fawlty Towers" Netflix had to offer. For those of you who don't know the show, get to know it ASAP. It is absolutely hilarious. John Cleese stars as Basil Fawlty, the grumpy busybody owner of an inn. He and his wife Sybil strive to make their establishment posh with the help of the pretty, young Polly and their Spanish butler and waiter Manuel.

The hijinks of the Fawlty staff keep you in stitches, yes, but their fashion is funny, too. It was the 70s, after all.

This is Mrs. Fawlty. She never met a ruffle she didn't like.

I ❤ #noveltybroochfriday

I'm not sure how I stumbled across Novelty Brooch Friday but I did and I was instantly in love. Each month, people share their brooches on Instagram with the hashtag #noveltybroochfriday and the ladies behind Tunabake Times and The Fawn Times pick a winner of a fun brooch.

I don't wear a lot of brooches myself--I think I have only three and two I made myself--but seeing the sweet, creative handmade and vintage ones people wear has inspired me to start a collection. As the sort of dork who has Christmas socks, I find it a fun way to be festive.

I bought this brooch of Etsy a few years ago when I was doing a big presentation at my job having to do with food. It seemed like an appropriate good luck charm. Of course, I keep wearing it because I'm a foodie and I'm always hungry.


I love fruit jewelry. It's so much fun. And since I already have fruit earrings, a fruit brooch might be nice.

I'm in love with the idea of using a circular brooch like this as a place to hold your glasses! Genius.


This 40s Bakelite scotty dog brooch is pretty darn adorable.


Rhinestones for sparkle, because, duh, ladies need sparkle.

Do you collect brooches or participate in #noveltybroochfriday?

I just realized I hadn't posted on the bulletin in a bit and wanted to share some news. The shop has had a facelift and its own look book updated seasonally as a part of that change. We also made it onto One Kings Lane and joined instagram (which is a bit too much fun) as well.  I wanted to share some of the inventory highlights new to the stores on etsy, OKL, and Sarara Couture.  I continue posting on the blog, a current favorite post is about the DeYoung museum's Bulgari exhibit, so please check in for such articles. I mean just look at these Bulgari jewels in the vintage fashion image below- sure to appeal to the vintage jewelry lover.

Brrrrr... It is cold outside!

Happy New Year!

From vintageweartreasures on Etsy, I would like to wish all of my Vintage Bulletin viewers a wonderful and prosperous New Year.

Watching the news today, I saw that 1,700 flights were cancelled due to the Nor'easter that came by yesterday.

For those of you needing nice and warm clothing and love vintage winter wear, I am featuring some amazing winter garments. These are not only vintage stylish, but also will keep you toasty warm.

Coats back in the day were made of quality durable fabrics. Many with flair showcasing fur trims, soutache, oversized buttons and other fancies. Outfits were created with such style!

Please enjoy viewing some fabulous vintage winter wear and stay warm if you are in this chilly winter weather.

PS- I am in Florida and our cold front today will reach 65 degrees!

5 More Vintage Styles that Should Come Back

Recently, HuffPo style ran a list of 10 Vintage Styles that Really Need to Come Back. It listed petticoats, gloves, seamed stockings, and a lot of things that are par for the course for a lot of us midcentury-loving ladies. I think, though, there are a few other fashions they missed. Here are five I'd like to add to the list.
