 Shopper's Alert - Spring Break

Hello Fashion Diggers...

1960s Pierre Cardin Sunglasses from Mid Century ChicWe're all looking forward to getting away from it all this time of the year...especially east coast this-is-the-coldest-winter-ever survivors and students ready to practice their annual spring break rituals. Whether you're traveling to Miami, Mexico or the Keys...vintage pieces like Hawaiian shirts, 50s souvenir circle skirts and oversized designer sunglasses will add style to your getaway wardrobe.

You'll look cool at the Keys or any beach party if you wear a vintage Hawaiian print...check out the barkcloth Aloha shirts for men and the sexy Hawaiian print sundresses, shifts and skirts for women. Add vintage Miami chic to your style when cruising the city...wear a colorful maillot swimsuit under your wrap, a glamour girl swimcap at the pool, a terrycloth cover-up at the beach, carry a large wicker handbag and tie a souvenir scarf around your neck or handbag. Funky 50s shirtwaist dresses, full skirts and little blouses will carry you through a day of shopping or sight-seeing in Mexico, and the Must-Have 70s Christian Dior large logo bag will carry you through any vacation with style!

 Spotlight on - The Preppy Look

1950s Preppy Plaid Bag from TangerinesThe Preppy look is strong again for spring and the site is stocked with vintage pieces to complete your sorority sister outfit...check out the perfect charm bracelets, classic Coach handbags, daisy pins, plaid handbags and loafers.

 Ask Janet
Ask JanetI received quite a few comments from Fashion Diggers about my previous answer to this question. I've revised and expanded the answer to include more looks from this decade...guess I couldn't see past my shoulder pads!
Question Kristy: We are throwing an 80s themed party and have no idea what to wear! Any suggestions for a group of 21 year old girls and guys?
