Wear vintage and make the world brighter—That’s been my mantra since 1999 when I started denisebrain vintage. Vintage fashion has gone mainstream—seen on popular shows, worn by style icons, influencing modern designers—and there are many good reasons for that. It can be exquisitely made and wildly economical for its quality. It always gives its wearer an opportunity to express herself in a way tha

“Your descriptions of your vintage items are charming and accurate. You clearly are very knowledgeable and have an excellent sense of style, across all the different decades from which you hand pick these lovely outfits.”

”You have really inspired me. I came away from your site so happy! It was fun, thoughtful and very interesting, and I love pink!…When I get down from now on I am going to just go browse around your store for a few minutes and I'm sure it will pick me right back up!”

“It is fun to go shopping there, every item has a story and she tells it well. She is as happy and cheerful as she looks in all her presentations, shows a real love for what she does, and this spills over into the sweet considerate way she treats her customers.”

“I buy quite a lot of vintage from the U.S. but I really need to send a heartfelt personal ‘thank you’ for the most beautifully presented, carefully packaged piece I’ve ever received! The time taken by you in treating this dress so tenderly has the effect of sprinkling fairy dust over it for the recipient.”

“Sizing is dead on perfect, shipping and communication: Best ever!”

“When I order from you, I know exactly what I'm going to get—which is an exquisite new vintage piece that I will treasure.”

Well now. One year ago, Humpty Dumpty (myself) had a great fall which resulted in badly bruised knees and a possibly broken nose. After a year of pain and swelling, today I found out I damaged the cartilage pretty badly.

Surgery awaits. 😑

Many think of today as Giving Tuesday, but the considers it Giving 'Teesday!

As you may know, I love manatees
and I have a fundraiser on JustGiving—I'm trying to raise $500 by the end of the month. With the help of a number of lovely people, we've reached the halfway point.

So today, with 3 1/2 days to go, I will donate all my Etsy sales profits, and will kick in $5 for any donation to my JustGiving page!

Please chip in $5 if you have it, or share! On behalf of the manatees, THANK Y😊U!

Here's the JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/page/margaret-wilds-169929373710

Just a few thoughts for Thanksgiving:

This handmade crazy quilt dress is its own sort of work of art. Probably dating from the early 70s, it is made of cotton velvet with silk shantung and linen stripes of fabric between the patches, and feather stitch embroidery along all seams. A singular slice of time, love and a hint of madness. (Can you tell I adore this thing?)

It's the penultimate day of the VFG's fall fundraiser, "Hats Off to the Vintage Fashion Guild" and, well, we're just halfway to our admittedly ambitious goal. I know it has been a hard year for vintage fashion dealers, and I'm sure for many others, but I've never so greatly miscalculated a financial goal.

If you have been on the fence about giving $5 to help sustain this valuable organization, may I do something to convince you now's the time?
