I've recently added a super-cute mod Tori Richard jacket to the shop and it is in very good condition. Tori Richard was a premiere resort wear designer who came to the height of popularity throughout the 1960s and 1970s when the Hawaiian/Polynesian aesthetic craze was happening in American sportswear. This jacket was made exclusively for Liberty House, a specialty chain originating in Hawaii, that then expanded its locations to California, Washington and Nevada. These chains dried up by the mid 1980s.. however you can still purchase some pieces at ViviBell Vintage!!
Mod Graphic TORI RICHARD Jacket, $42.

So I had my first sale a few days ago and turns out the buyer lives in the UK.. so I decided that ViviBell Vintage must go International! I had a lot of fun wrapping the item for shipment (I decided to use blue and white as my colors for now) and I've updated all of my shipping profiles and even added a new item... a silk and wool reversible Oscar de le Renta scarf!! Check is out as well as the rest of my items at ViviBell Vintage. :)
Purple Silk Oscar de la Renta Scarf, $32.

I've come across come really great fashion spreads in UK Vogue lately, all with a 1960s Mod theme and all feature vintage accessories. Vogue has been infusing haute couture with "low-brow" costume jewelry and accessories for years and it always looks great. First up is this month's issue of UK Vogue with Georgia May Jagger.. the spread is at Frank Sinatra's house in Palm Springs and notice the vintage gold bracelet... I think I may have found it's lookalike..
1960s gold MONET chunky bracelet, $48. LunaParkFoundry
Speaking of lookalikes.. I also love this Lara Stone spread in the November 2010 issue of UK Vogue.. and I love the little white bag she's holding. It was listed as only costing $16 or pounds I should say...
1960s Mod white handbag, $15. CookieKVintage.
I've actually been eyeing this bag for a while and am gearing up to possibly buy it so hopefully none of you will swipe it before me.. though I'm sure the seller would love for anyone to buy it.... Last thought - these images are really making long for spring and sundresses and hopefully another trip out to Palm Springs... sigh...
