Why Don’t You Have These Headphones?!

These awesomely authentic Aerial7 Royale Headphones are made with genuine full-grain genuine leather, customized cushy ear cups and re-inforced aluminum outer ear housing.  Royale in every way, the isolated design blocks outside noise completely and speakers are equipped with superb 50mm drivers deliver the crystal-clear lows, mids, and highs. With precision sound quality, these radically retro looking headphones invite you to listen to music just the way it was intended! 

Powerful and plushy sound puppies, these headphones are seriously stocked with additional premiums for the snobbiest of music snobs. Included with purchase are a heavy duty, extendable coiled DJ cable, a lightweight cable with a mic for using with a cell phone, a 3.5mm to 6.3mm (1/4-inch) adapter, and a carry bag. For the amount of engineering and technical authority the Aerial7 Royale Headphones offer, the price of $399.99 is justified. (not Justin Timberlake ‘cry me a rive’ justified) Just… justified.

I personally wouldn’t be able to allow myself that kind of wallet leverage, as while I’m a music enthusiast, I do still rock my diskman and Sony walkman from the later 90’s.  My requirements for music quality are a little less… sophisticated. 🙂

For those of you that may feel the way I do, that these are simply totally rocking old school style headphones that I adore (and that my ears would love!), you’ve not been forgotten. WeAretheSuperlativeConspiracy, WeSC is at our rescue with retro unisex headphones fitting for vintage fashion and music enthusiasts with the Maraca seasonal headphones (picture below). Available for only $71!

Other awesome designs in accessories can be found in the recent collaboration collection of Bing Bang and WeSC (more at Refinery29.com)

From ‘Helsinki Vintage’: Marimekko’s Design Manager Noora Niinikoski stopped by AMERICANA’s shop for a chat about Converse ♥ Marimekko and the whole heritage trend with American & Finnish brands.  She amusingly recounted a similar adventure in Tallinn to find herself a pair of Estonian All-Stars, which also led her to the same back alley post office.

Today, I stumbled across a sweet summer dress, one of those fantastic light cotton swing dresses that could make you feel like it was a warm summer day even in a few feet of snow… A Victor Costa cotton poplin vintage dress.

With a Clara Kasavina Swarovski ring and Chloe bow sandals, the innocently white with blue trim summer dress is accented perfectly. Take a look…

Fashion Blogger Feature: Karla’s Closet

This not-so-little statement piece feature arrives via the visionary fashion and jewelry combinations of Karla’s Closet.

The unique, flirty and ultimately classic ensemble you see here is just one of the ‘all vintage clothing‘ creations of the vintage-inspired business venture, Karla’s Closet.

Amazing fashion ensembles created from combinations of the Karla’s Closet eclectic inventory can be found with detailed descriptions right here… on the Karla’s Closet Blog.

In this photo, Karla models one of most fabulous outfits I’ve ever seen. Described by the Model/ Author/ Entrepreneur herself as:

“A vintage Ungaro skirt that I found on Ebay, an American Apparel striped sweater, 70s Erwin Pearl necklace,  Balenciaga sunglasses, my favorite Coach clutch, and Christian Louboutins.”

Clock Inspired 70s Erwin Pearl necklace

This timepiece-inspired statement necklace by jewelry designer Erwin Pearl, circa 1970’s is (in my humble and personal opinion), the glue that holds this bodacious outfit together. Sometimes an outfit even as adorable and stylish as this one, with a great pink pencil skirt and amazing matching clutch and heels still needs that one illuminating piece of jewelry that ties every piece together in perfect stylish harmony.

Vintage Lace Maxidress Giveaway by Vintage Space

Vintage Lace Maxidress Giveaway by Vintage Space

The beauty of a vintage piece is that it’s usually one of a kind. You have those glorious moments where someone says to you “amazing dress – where is it from?” and you get to disappoint them by saying “oh, it’s vintage” (i.e. you’ll never find one like it)!

The trouble with hunting down great vintage clothing in the age of the Internet though is that there’s actually too much. It’s hard to filter through the junk and find the gems – that’s when you need to seek out those high quality stores that only stock the best time and again, so you know where to head back to for your vintage fix.

Vintage Space is one of those stores.

With the clothing and accessories vivid with vintage nostalgia by Vintage Space, those of us who adore the look of a tiered, long skirt with layers of top lace falling whimsically down our back, chest and shoulders can keep our personal styles well-maintained. For that, Vintage Space, we thank you! 

This one-of-a-kind immaculately cut vintage lace dress will be part of a giveaway, made possible by Fashionising.com and Vintage Space.

Wear it with angelic innocence, or a big floppy hat for 70s hippy appeal.
