You have a girlfriend completely in love with vintage,
burlesque and couture fashion and your not sure how to buy her the things she
dreams of most. There are some wonderful resources available for the lady with
sophisticated, retro, or vintage taste that are sure to keep her lashes
fluttering and those red lips pouting in flirtation instead of disappointment.
When it comes to giving gifts that speak to her taste, to your knowledge of her
style, and to the limitations of your pocketbook try looking at her vanity for
the answer. This is where you will find
the extent to which her love for retro and vintage extends. Does she enjoy
reproductions or is she collecting the real deal?
Second hand and thrift stores can be home to many great finds you just have to know
what you are looking for. Whether it is vintage collectibles, old glass
perfume bottles, or even modern glass works that will look fantastic with
her truly vintage items. Another great second hand or thrift store find can be
a simple silver tray on which she can place her vanity items for the perfect
fifties elegance. Often old silver handled brushes and comb sets can also be
found if you have patience and keep on hunting until the perfect items are
found. Estate auctions are also awesome shopping opportunities for beautiful
older items that have been stored away in the jewelry boxes and bedroom closets
of grandmothers everywhere. These women have kept some stunning vintage items
in pristine condition that can be picked up at a great price.
If you live in a big city your chances are much higher, but the internet is also full
of second hand resources that you can search using keywords and have the items
shipped directly to you without having to head out searching on foot. Try
checking out online auction sites, estate sales, and even using local sale
sites. The important thing to remember is if you are looking for modern
reproductions of vintage like items then quality is essential. Try to avoid
plastic when glass would be more authentic or more beautiful. Apothecary
bottles are very popular and make beautiful additions to the make-up tray along
with fine colored glass perfume bottles with delicate shapes that can be
filled with rose water, perfume, or essential oils for the ultimate
personalized gift. When creatively chosen, filled and packaged a few old
bottles can become the perfect gift for the collector.
Another wonderful gift for the refined beauty in your life is a satin dressing gown
trimmed with marabou feather or a set of marabou trimmed slippers. These satin
wonders are timeless classics that are sure to bring a smile to her lips. The truly
vintage versions can be very pricey, but modern reproductions are not difficult
to find. Try choosing something in a cream, peach or burgundy to retain the
vintage look. This gift should be reserved for the woman with whom there is a
very close or intimate relationship due to the personal nature of the item, but
for the right girl this may just be the absolute perfect option.
The silver mirrored cosmetic or cigarette case is another fabulous gift whether
truly vintage or a modern version made to look vintage. The older real silver
ones are often intricately detailed, finely engraved or even include monograms
and personal messages that connect them to their original owners giving them a
sense of history that can be very appealing. Powder used to come in these
compacts; blushes and other small items are often stored in them now. If you
can find one that still has the original product and puff inside then you have
scored a real treasure.
Finding the perfect gift for the lady in your life can be as easy as looking at her
vanity. Any woman with a dedicated space for such rituals is sure to enjoy the
fruits of your efforts. True vintage glass perfume bottles, silver
compacts, and beautiful boudoir items trimmed in marabou are essential elements
of the vintage woman’s world. Giving a gift that truly speaks of how well you
know her, how much you appreciate her individuality and class, and how much you
adore her femininity can be the best gifts of all.
