Autumn Arrival │ Labor Day Weekend

While it sure doesn't feel like Fall here in Northern California, I'm thinking about it. And to be honest, I'm usually thinking about Fall year 'round.

I crave this season probably because it's so short for us and probably because it's the perfect season. Perfect because I can add layers, and with these layers come the textures, and generally, Fall means I can frolic in the cooler temps because ... that's just plain fun.

It's Labor Day Weekend and the shop is 20% off. 

I've been sourcing as much denim and wool as possible, and am particularly on the look out for warm, cozy sweaters and worn-in-to-perfection Levi's jeans.

I'm happy to report the shop is stocked!

So come on by! Visit Perennial Vintage today and prepare for the best season where the bright colors of summer have faded to a softer hue and the trees begin to whisper down their leaves, and the perpetual desire for warm drinks is only a cup away.

Happy end of summer and welcome to the unofficial start of Fall.

Minimal Perfection │ Vintage Wardrobe

Having a small set of minimal and basic clothing items in your wardrobe allows you to have an extremely large one.

How is this so? Because of the ability to mix and match everything together.

I just got back from a cruise vacation where I over packed. And by over-packed, I mean didn't even wear a third of what I brought. The sad thing is I knew this while I was packing, but there's always that "just in case" fear which made me include things I didn't need.

Just recently, a wonderful friend of mine and I recounted our ten-day trip to Italy where we had the smallest of wardrobes in our tiny suitcases ... and it was the best vacation ever! And I never felt like I didn't have something creative to wear.

Less is more. And those fewer items -- if they are basic and minimal but beautiful -- blend well with other coordinates of the same caliber.

I'm sticking to my Italy minimal wardrobe from now on when I travel. Less to think about, more to work with.

And in the shop, I try to stock all those minimal basics, like linen blouses, denim skirts, and basic silk tops and more jean and denim!

If you haven't the basics, but need them, swing on by the shop right now! I've got you covered.
