Sharing some lovely photographs that inspire nostalgia from SaraClaireandEsther - a vintage inspired women's wear line based in New York. The outfits featured in these pictures are from their last year's Spring collection titled Vintage Reimagined.
Isn't the black high waisted ruffled skirt to die for?
The model on the right is wearing a dress called The Democracy Dress. Love the eye-catching golden mini skirt. Absolutely fun and flirty!
This timeless elegant dress is so aptly titled The First Lady Dress. Indeed fit for the President's wife.
The brand Sara Claire and Esther was founded by Sara Jordan and Aimee Mars. It's named after the designer duos grandmothers Sara Claire Peacock and Esther Wolk who greatly influenced their sense of style and ambitious desires.
Each season Sara and Aimee recreate a time period or a past event and base their collection around this theme. The Vintage Reimagined collection was inspired from their grandma's experiences during the 1940s in the South. I love the use of black and white colours with touches of gold in this collection. Also, find the feminine details in all the outfits extremely pretty.
SC&E's designs feature recycled fabrics, thrifted accessories and other authentic little details which make every creation unique and one of its kind. These outfits are designed for (in SC&E's own words) Classy girls who grew up loving tea parties and playing dress up. Today this girl has grown into the lady who still loves dressing up and feeling beautiful. She adores pearls, lace, romance and getting recognized for her gorgeous attire. She appears fine quality and detail, and regularly updates her wardrobe with flirty and tasteful pieces. -- Whoa...this girl sounds just like me! Jokes aside, I do think SC&E's designs are absolutely classy and they remind me so much of my expeditions into my grand ma's closet when I was a little girl.
If you fancy outfits that are subtle, classic and timeless, then SC&E's Spring '10 collection-Valley of Belles is sure to make you swoon with delight. This collection is inspired from their grandmothers' lives in the year 1967. Here's a little peek to whet your appetite:
Aren't these dresses utterly sophisticated and romantic? I guess what they say is true after all, grannies do know best!
