Falling

Wistful yet exhilarated by the crispness in the air, she is feeling refreshed by the change of seasons. This alternation has brought with it a new appreciation of the sun, seeking out its warmth and harvesting it’s energy for the cool evenings and misty mornings to come.

Fall brings with a array of our favorite elements. Rich earth tones, ambers and, of course, a vibrant mix of copper and gold metals that you would be hard pressed to resist. New pieces, inspired by change, are popping up at all of our shops, and you can snag your favorite online on 9/17/14 at 10AM.

The White Cabinet

When stepping into the bright pristine collection, you can’t help but be enamored with all that Mona Williams has to offer. A knockout selection of designer goods, a bright and fun sense of style, and a timeless sensibility. Curated and compiled, each piece in the shop has been chosen with a discerning eye. Beginning discussions about the addition of L’avenir to the mix we couldn’t help but to be a little excited, taking the opportunity to be inspired by everything they have to offer and infusing it into an exclusive collection.

When in for the first time, Jen picked up a handful of cards and paper goods from off the shelves and it seemed all too kismet. The vintage illustrations exuded a feeling of unchanging glamour and poise. Each a part of the White Cabinet Collection by the legendary fashion illustrator Hilda Glasgow.

#lavenirlaunchMWWith (many) handfuls of inspired new designs, we are heading to North East to be a part of Mona Williams Fall 2014 Trunk Show. Join us on Tuesday 9/9/14 from 6-9 at 18 University Ave NE, Minneapolis MN 55413. 

 

Launch

Silver and rhinestone have been dazzling our dreams as of late, consequently inspiring some mighty statement designs.

The right side of the tracks

Long dresses of summer are best worn with skirts full of movement, soft flowing fabric and balanced edgy patterns.

Amongst the Wildflowers

We had a chance to work with photographer Katie Essick a few weeks back. With a youthful approach and a energetic spirit we hopped around the Longfellow neighborhood with a loose agenda of seizing the moment and basking in the summer sun. Amongst the wildflowers we captured the essence of two of our favorite summer accessories with 1970’s flare.

Priscilla_20's-337-X3We’ve been featuring our bridal collection a lot lately, mostly because we are so excited to be a part of the Forever Bride VIB program. You can find out more about our participation here. As always you can find our bridal pieces gracing the shelves at Via’s Vintage and coming soon to an online shop near you (so close, it’s like… in your living room).
