COMING SOON: 30+ New Arrivals Next Week

Here's a quick sneak peek at some of VagaBondnyc.com's latest vintage scores that will be up for grabs on the site after the 3rd of Jan. 2010.

Give John Galliano a run for his money with this chic 50's era blue muted floral water-color a-line tea dress. It's explosive abstracted floral print saves it from being a little too precious & retro while it's figure defining bodice is sure to keep heads turning.

And just as everyone is finally looking back at Betsey Johnson's archives, including the boisterous designer herself, comes this sweet early 80's era white bolero that is covered with crisp black Swiss dots. It's sports inspired sweatshirt composition ensures comfort & ease while helping you look your best.

We've been feeling Ralph Lauren's classic sophistication again for some time now and his 70's era preppy navy-blue double breasted blazer with it's gold metallic threaded crest and sharp cut just seems so right for right now.

Another score from early 80's Betsey Johnson, another testament to her non-stop boundless creativity. This piece quietly hits so many of today's biggest trends we just couldn't resist. Edwardiana, the 80's, the prominent shoulder, it's all here in this unbelievably easy to wear knock-em-dead number.

All items will be available at VagaBondnyc.com Jan. 3rd 2010

Ladies Miss Bernier Lavender Hat


Spring will be here soon....
This stylish, never been worn.,(still has a price tag on it for $36.) is a perfect Easter, church or summer garden party hat. The tightly woven cap is a soft lavender while the wide satin bow is a soft pink…perfect Spring colors! An even paler lavender French ribbon floret is accented with faux lavender flowers. (I think the little lavender flowers could be removed very easily if you chose to.)
The inner band is spotless. This hat has never been worn! The circumference is approximately 7” x 8”.
The cut of the hat is asymmetrical so when worn it is not just a box sitting there. It rests on the side with flowing line. The Floret is positioned on the right of your brow.
Lovely!

New Feature


Bibby'sRocket has been busy busy busy... We are featured in the gorgeous blog of etsy seller, JewelsOfSarawati, whose jewelry is quite the eye candy with inspiration from the heart.

We've posted several new items that we can really get behind -- these stunning horn rim specs by American Optical (Mad Men era); and an eighties cover-up -- leather jacket -- and sweaters -- to keep you warm in high style ;).

WallflowerVintage presents: An Ode to Spring

The robins harmonize, heralding in spring as the days slowly get longer. The spring peepers join in the chorus uniting with the chipmunks until the symphony erupts in a cacophony of sound.

A solitary fee patiently surveys the coming of a new season.
