Happy Valentine's Day: Win $100 from LA Vintage!

Untitled-2

In a long line of me being the last to know, I recently discovered the online vintage shop LA Vintage. How could this have flown under my radar for so long?! I have since spent way too much time getting lost in their vast selection of vintage clothes, shoes, bag and so much more. They carry pieces in a wide range of sizes from the 50s to the 80s and every piece is unique. There's currently a 50s crochet blouse sitting in my closet acquired from the shop that I'm dying to wear once the weather turns warmer. So, when they contacted me about doing a give-away on my blog it was sort of a no brainer! I think the shop is quite lovely and if you haven't checked it out yet, now is the perfect time.

Here's the deal... all you have to do is hop over to LA Vintage, browse around the site (trust me, it won't be painful - ha, ha) and then leave a comment on this post telling me how you'd spend a hundred buckaroos in the shop. It's that easy! The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to spend in the shop however they like.

I'll be taking comments until Friday when a winner will be randomly selected. The contest is open to everyone, international readers included. Please be sure that your comment includes a way for me to get in touch with you either via a blog link or your email.

LA Vintage has the loveliest dresses! I've been looking for the perfect 50's day dress and they have it-the Claire Mint dress is PERFECT! They also have some absolutely lovely boots and oxfords that I would sell my soul for :) I would love to win the contest, but even if I don't, I have a feeling I'll be patronizing their store.

P.S. I adore your blog. I read it while I eat my oatmeal every morning :) also, if I do win (please, please, please let it be me!) You can contact me at ebrunner4816@gmail.com

Oh my oh my goodness! I adore the Full Skirts Are For Squares dress. Be still my 50s-loving heart! Happy Valentine's Day, lovely lady, and Happy Chinese New Year's Eve as well.

grace said...

i'd get the pink skirt! and the platform sandals.

AlicePleasance said...

OMG! Love the store and there are so many amazing pieces to choose! It's very difficult...maybe the Sophie Floral Dress or the Beach House or the Pearl Evening one.... and I looked just at dresses!!! You're killing me!

Good Morning Idea said...

I have not heard of this site either! So awesome! I would spend it on the Marianne Minty Dress and the Hooray for Vacations top!

Dee said...

Decisions, decisions! I think I would pick the Captains Orders Dress, and to go with it, the Kenzie platforms......

Kelley Anne said...

You're right, that wasn't hard at all:) I think I would buy the Equestrian Fields Bag and the Pretty Sweetie Dress. Sigh. Thanks for doing this!

Amelia said...

What a cool site! I would get the mod squad dress.

Lara said...

The Pretty Sweetie dress and a cute waist belt.

GirlNextDoorVintage said...

I love LA Vintage! So many gorgeous things in one shop... so bad for my budget! :) And I absolutely love the "size-browser" (what would you call that??) thing. Marvel of modern technology, that is - now I don't even have to see the things that wouldn't fit and be tempted by them. When that happens I usually end up gasping in a dress with a tiny waist which I should never, ever have bought haha.

Anyway, I would spend $100 on the 60s Go Go Pastel dress, and throw in $15 extra of my own to add the Kenzie Platforms, which are so perfect I might have stopped breathing for a second when I saw them!

vintage_girl said...

It was really hard to choose. I would like to have Fan Away Dress http://www.lavintage.com/Fan-Away-Dress-80s.htm and thi cute basket bag http://www.lavintage.com/Baske%20Box%20Bag.htm. It's adorable!

leseffel said...

I'm looking for a great 50s party dress, and I'm loving the Oh So Blue dress. That one's sold, but it wouldn't be hard to find something else I'd love...

Thanks so much!

Jessica said...

Ohh, I'd definitely want the Concrete Discrete Dress!

http://wardrobesandwhimsy.blogspot.com/

Erin said...

Both their navy gravy and go go pastel dresses are dreamy! And I love how they let you search by your specific measurements too!

Jeanne said...

I went straight for the shoes! I love all of the platform sandals, but so many of them are perfect and yet not in my size! At any rate, I'd get the Bandolino woven wedges, the Connie cork wedges, and Burgundy Blues purse. (That's probably over $100, but that's fine with me...!)

Sidewalk Chalk said...

Thanks for hosting this giveaway I'd probably get the Sally Fay Dress! Such pretty dresses!

Megan said...

I would definitely throw down for the Floral Crush 70's dress; it would be a hard decision between the beautiful Pinky Dink sweater or Carrie Pom Pom Cardigan. The collection of scarves is amazing as well!

Thank you for the awesome contest!

vêtements déments said...

I would go for trying to put together a whole outfit with $100.
I'd start with an interesting dress like the Evita Floral dress ($62)

Then I'd look for a pair of shoes, maybe something like the 80s slouchy booties from the sale section.

and of course I'd have to finish everything off with a pair of sunglasses, like the Darkness glasses.
Either that or I'd just go totally crazy buying lovely vintage accessories.

Paqui said...

I love bags and dresses!!

What a lovely post!
I would wear the Sophie Floral 60s Dress because I am longing for spring fashion! I plan on having a live action clue night where we all dress up as our characters and no one will suspect that I did it in the library with a noose while I am wearing such an adorable-she-didn't-do-it dress. :)

Leanna said...

Your blog is so cheery! I check it at least 5 times a day for a new, exciting post!

I would get the "Object of My Desires" dress

http://www.lavintage.com/Object%20Of%20My%20Desires%20Dress%2060s.htm

and oddly.. I'd pair with with the Stevie Striped Purse

http://www.lavintage.com/70s%20Stevie%20Striped%20Purse.htm

and add the finishing touches with the "Show White glasses"

http://www.lavintage.com/Snow-White-Glasses.htm

And of course I'd use all of these pieces to form a story in my blog!!! It's these pieces that I find incredible!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Oh, what a great giveaway! I am looking for a dress to wear to my cousin's wedding this summer and think the Janis Embroidered Dress would look fantastic. I might top it off with the Colette Red Cloche for an extra kick.

Woman said...

love the pretty sweetie dress! and a ton of other things too, there is so much to choose from!

Fetus said...

So many cute dresses! I'd definitely put the $100 towards the No Speed Limit Dress and the Silver Dollar dress! Beautiful! :)

Emily Cummins said...

Oh my! How could you possibly only spend $100 at LA Vintage? By just scanning through their wonderful clothes, shoes and accessories I really wish I was payed more. There dresses are things that I covet with all my heart. There 1950's section I just adore, and I wish every time I look at another beautiful picture that I could own what they are selling.

If in fact I did have a hundred bucks to spend(the thought is fantastic!), at first I wouldn't know how to start. But after some deep breaths I'm sure I would find a lovely dress or two that would fit the bill. Or maybe a cute pair of shoes...so many choices!

I don't have a blog(I wish I had the time), but my name is Emily and you can reach me at emilyalaska22@yahoo.com. Have fun picking the winner! <3

Aurelie said...

My perfect outfit pick would be:

Lydia Tangelo Blazer 80s
Melissa Oxfords
Amy Lee Denim Jumper 80s

ejessop said...

What a terrific giveaway! (and yes...it was indeed easy and fun to browse the store, though not so easy to make choices!)

I'd start with a dress, like the All Eyes on Me dress (http://www.lavintage.com/All-Eyes-On-Me-Dress-60s.htm) or the Twister dress (http://www.lavintage.com/Twister-Dress-80s.htm), and then grab a beautiful scarf or hat!

Liza said...

What a fantastic find! This shop looks incredible. I think I'd spend $100 on pretty dresses. I need some bright spots in my closet to help me get through my first winter in NYC!

My contact email is available on my blog :-D

billie said...

I love the dizzy lizzy Mod dress!

honey and salt said...

I spent most of my life in jeans and t-shirts. Weary of this wardrobe, I have begun as of about a year ago to wear skirts and dresses. this is a slow process considering I am not blessed with expendable wealth. A few things that caught my eye:
http://www.lavintage.com/The-Brown-Hibiscus-Dress-50s.htm
http://www.lavintage.com/Drench-Wench-Dress-70s.htm


In addition to these...growing up in Phoenix has unfortunately influnced my bad habit of wearing flip flops yearly. It is a habit that his since been broken since my move to the midwest. The downside is my recent love of footwear has not been satisfied due to the same lack of finances that cripple my ability to get pretty dresses. I liked these:
http://www.lavintage.com/Kenzie-Platform-8-1/2.htm
http://www.lavintage.com/Roger-Workman-Boots-9AA.htm

So there you go!

Tricia said...

When I was little I wouldn't wear jeans save for one gorgeous little floral pair - honestly, I was so terribly sad when I grew out of them - - I kept them for a few years hoping I would magically shrink?!? So, it's easy, I would buy the Darla Floral Jeans for $51 - a grown-up pair to replace the ones I loved when I was 10!!!
The tosca nightie is beautiful and I wish I had it to wear for valentine's day!!! But with this and the jeans I am well over $100 and would certainly be happy with either piece!!!
In any case, a wonderful place to find lovely vintage treasures!

Karen said...

Ooh, I would get the Somebody for Me dress and maybe a pair of cowboy boots, too. What a great site with an awesome selection!

kalexan2@gmail.com

KWu said...

Ah, LOVE the searching by size function!! Definitely will be a repeat visitor to their site. I didn't find any tops that would work, that's my main wardrobe goal right now, but I could definitely go for a dress, a pair of shoes, and then a tooled leather bag--I've been lusting after one for awhile but just haven't been able to bring myself to that just yet.

Krisalis said...

If I won a $100 gift certificate to LA Vintage I would definitely go for a pair of black boots - they have been on my to-buy list.

Michelle said...

I AM IN LOVE. I most definitely want to snatch up the Botanical Scent Dress, among many other pieces. Actually, I am grossly infatuated with the entire dress section.

Amie Eliza Pinkerton said...

Wow, I love that site so much! I think I got a little giddy looking through all the lovely clothes, but the one standout item for me is the Carry Pom Pom Cardigan. I want!

Kyla said...

LA Vintage is such a cool site! Their selection is so awesome. I would totally stock up on spring dresses and skirts! Oh, the florals!

natalia said...

Holy cow, how did I not know about this site? The way they've set up the search so you can go by measurements is BRILLIANT - takes a lot of the crapshootin' out of hunting for vintage online.
I'd go for the supercute Brickwall Waterfall scooter dress...and then kick in an extra two bones to cover the Pepperdine pumps (holy crap, it's adorable vintage shoes in size 11!)

xoaria said...

While it's several inches to big for me, their 'In the Tree Tops' Maxi Dress is beautiful and I wouldn't mind going through the trouble of pinning it everyday. I'd also get their adorable 'Rebecca' Pumps. <3 Thank you very much for sharing the site!~

daughteroftheRiver said...

This is a great shop, so much good stuff! I love the Nancy Frock, the High Waist Jester Pants, and the Childhood Dreams Dress. I would have a hard time narrowing it down further!

Anonymous said...

Their shop is so diverse! And there's so much to choose from. I definitely fell in love with the winter romance cardi and the hunt club oxfords, though they are a bit big for me.

First, I'd start with this amazing alligator purse:

If I had $100 to spend at LA Vintage, I would buy as many pairs of strappy, wooden-soled platforms as I could. I've fallen hopelessly in love with Swedish Hasbeens shoes, but can't stand the price tag--so any shoe that is similar (like the Bicycle Heels or 70s Carrie Platforms on the LAV website) but less expensive immediately captures my heart!

I would buy a floral patterned seventies dress and save it for summer. Then I would find a roof to climb up on, and sit there in the middle of the night, drinking yogi tea and meditating.

Wow, so much beautifulness! The shoes, the coats, and the shirtdresses are particularly intriguing to me - that's where I'd spend my gold coins!

rachel / Red Lips Vintage said...

lovely! definitely would have to grab up some of the swimsuits and a dress!

Anonymous said...

It's funny.... I'm a 90s kid, and I just can't get used to seeing the floral print prairie dresses and babydolls going as "vintage." I remember the moment they looked dated, sometime around 95, and now they look fresh again. Makes me feel elderly. And like I'll never throw anything out again.

Despite that I found some lovely stuff at LAVintage. With 100 bucks in my pocket I'd take:

Memphis Boots (9.5! I can't believe they have my size... usually vintage is for the teensy-footed) and the "80s brown squares bag."

That leaves a little cash left over. I liked some of the accessories. Maybe brown leather gloves.

Kathryn said...

ok...ok..
i just did a quick browse, but I am seriously in LOVE with some of their vintage swimwear. There's a good chance thats where i would spend it.

Melanie said...

I saw the Claire mint dress from the 50s and almost screamed. I has to be one of the cutest dresses ive seen in a LONG time. I would also get the Nicole Kitten heels and i would be able to not spend a little extra on those adorable grey sweet step heels. They are just too cute to let go! This store just makes me excited... and I havent even looked at the bags yet!

iris said...

Omg, if i won a $100 to LaVintage. I would be so happy because honestly I haven't purchased new clothes in 3 months. That's not really such a long time, but it would be a nice change to have new clothes. I love all the 1950s clothing!

I would snatch up one of the 80's dresses and a skirt. Love it all.

Ooh, this is difficult. I would probably go with the True Blue Dress, Hints of Color Sandals, and the Headed West Saddle Bag. So many pretty things!

Rebekah said...

lots of big life events coming up for family and friends this year, with all the celebrating that goes along with it... I'm loving the Pretty Sweetie Dress for my sister's baby shower! Or maybe the Katie Kaleidoscope Dress for my BFF's bachelorette party... too many choices! Thanks for sharing this site!

I love the Shirley Sunday Dress from the 60s and the Christmas Party Skirt from the 60s also. I see a trend and it wasn't even intentional.
Thanks for the opportunity!

If I have the $100 GC, I'd buy the Claudia Swimsuit, a pair of the rainbow huaraches, and the rest of the money will go to sunglasses. The weather here in the Philippines is already summery. :)

I'm newly following your blog, and I probably shouldn't be writing this on your V-day post, but its the only one of the many love posts that I've come across which has made me smile.

I'm not even kidding when I write this, no joke, my bf of 2 years broke up with me on Sunday morn.. I can't quite believe it still and its Tues in Australia..

So, I'd spend the $$ on mending my shattered heart, the best way I know how- vintage shopping. I'd buy the "Gray cap sleeves 70s" dress and add some of my own $$ to get the "Notations Top 80s" too!

Thanks for sharing a great site too. Sorry to blab, C ya.

Nina said...

Wow that site is awesome, they have a plus size section and that's so rare to find. But yeah i saw an amazing dress i would get if i won this contest.

i would totally buy the pretty sweetie dress 60s, and then buy some shoes! i need myself some great sandal wedges for spring :)

Alex said...

It's a bit over a hundred bucks but I'd pay the difference because the pieces I want are so lovely! I'd totes buy the Abagail Platforms and the Darla Floral Jeans. In fact, I'd wear 'em together for spring!

Such a great giveaway, thanks for the opportunity!

I have been searching for months for just the right pair of vintage boots. I think I may have finally found the right place. I would definitely use the $100 to buy a great pair. Great site with a large selection.

I've always loved LA Vintage! I don't know why I haven't bought anything there, everything is so lovely! Maybe this will give me the chance to?

mary van note said...

Definitely a couple mod dresses and some 70s platform wooden heel sandals!

Isabella said...

Helen said...

I'm trying to save up for post grad studies at the moment so some money for beautiful things would be ever so appreciated

Amanda said...

You can shop vintage shoes by size??? Be still my size 10 wearing sole(s)!

I'd probably buy some lovely shoes (!!!) and a cute little dress that I'll never take off. Swoon!

Love the blog, love the shop!

I would spend it all on shoes! If I'm the lucky winner, it would make my day! Thanks for the chance to win!

Penelope Nightingale said...

Wow, it would be so difficult to choose! I'm so torn between the Ms. Grinch 1960's Coat, the Renee Bow heels, and the 1950's Winter Romance Cardigan. I would probably have to add some extra cash and purchase all three!

What a great shop!

Melissa said...

i feel like sometimes it's IMPOSSIBLE for us not so tiny girls to find great vintage stuff online. looking through the etsy shops of my favorite bloggers i stare at a selection of adorable things in xs and s, but very rarely do i find an l. luckily, this isn't the case with la vintage. they've got all kinds of amazing dresses, coats, skirts and blouses for those of us with a little bit of meat on our bones.

i'd probably drop the money on a new dress (like the sunflower blues dress or j taylor new york dress) and spend the rest on a cool new pair of flats to tie it all together.

The dresses and shoes are killing me! I would definitely spend it on a print dress for spring and splurge on boots.

Hope said...

i'm a huge sucker for vintage nighties and swimwear! i love the 70s Citrus Peel Suit...wish it wasn't sold out!

Herlihy said...

I had a peek at the website. I couldn't believe how many dresses have sleeves that stop at the elbows! Burn scars cover half of my back and my left arm to the elbow - I'm not ashamed of them, but I don't show them off. It really limits my wardrobe options, especially since I'm an idiot who can't stand layering.

Sarah said...

I really love vintage floral dresses ... I think the two I would have to go for would be the lovely 50s Botanical Scent Dress, with a floral print that matched everything, and the 80s Ellyn Floral Dress, which just has such an amazing shape.

-Sarah, sarah.ifft@gmail.com

Megan said...

I would get the Maple Oxfords & the Mary Tyler Moore Skirt..I'm a librarian so it totally makes sense!

Anonymous said...

I cannot believe I haven't seen the LA VINTAGE shop before.:) Thanks. They have lovely pieces.
I would spend the money on some trousers and a pair of oxford flats.
Your blog is wonderful :)

Lovely collection! I would definitely get one of those gorgeous dresses and maybe the zooey pastel romper, those colors are perfect.

amelieandatticus said...

WOW...I spent hours and hours looking and some of my favourites were sold out and there were too many beautiful ones left I started writing them down but there were so many! I think if I won I would go with how I feel on the day and try and find something with a bit of room for my baby bump!

aivi said...

Aah, my first comment after almost a year (?) of lurking :)

From the LA Vintage shop I'd probably buy just shoes. And probably for more than 100$...just seeing so many pretty flats and heels in my size (high street fashion has been getting more and more dissapointing, and I don't have the money to the designer shoes that cause my heart to skip a beat) is making me so happy.

If I get to be the lucky winner, I can be contacted at tuntematon_olento@hotmail.com

I would love to get some clothes for this spring and summer! That'd be a ton of fun :)

April HelleDickson said...

A 50s dress and a pair of shoes! Easy choice. Those are great clothes.

Yoshi said...

The Bobby Joe Boots. Or the Romina Reversible Coat! Or the Baby Blue Pumps, how cute :D

... or anything, really!

Kristen said...

How would I spend a hundred buckaroos? QUICKLY! Look at all the beautiful pieces already sold!

I am such a 60s girl and I really like the Gloria Skirt, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't pass up the Claire Mint Dress from the 50s if it were still available. It's beautiful and has a similar vibe to the dress Zooey Deschanel's character wore as a wedding guest in 500 Days of Summer. Just lovely!

I only recently began building my vintage wardrobe so I would also spend this prize very gratefully, too. Thanks for the chance to win! My e-mail is kntimko at gmail dot com.

ashley said...

Love the fadoras on some of the girls! so grannie chic!

holly darling smith said...

How did I not know about this store before?!

I love how one can search specifically for the era you are looking for- nice! I love the dresses. And skirts. Gosh, cuteness.

:) erin said...

love me LA, love me some vintage :)

Grassroots Vintage said...

I can never find any good vintage shoes on my own, because I have big feet! I can't tell you how often I come across the perfect pair in a thrift store and they are a size seven. Always with the size sevens! Sigh.
But this store, with so many size 9's in one place..? I could easily spend a hundred bolstering my feeble shoe collection.
(If I were so lucky as to win, you can click on my user name to get to my blog)

Thanks!

the madeleine blue coat, an accent with a lovely pair of grey suede boots.

Nicky said...

Wow, I love the 70's dresses! I could snag a few of them quite easily!

Wish they'd take the sold items off the site though... what a tease :) They have sooo much cute stuff!

Thanks for introducing me!

Nathalie said...

The Love Me Tender Dress and the Oliver Victorian Boots. That's about $125. Of course I'd go over a hundred!

Madison Snaric said...

I would spend the $100 on River Boat Boots 7 and Made in Rio Dress 80s! It is such a great store!

madisonsnaric@gmail.com

Belinda said...

I adore the dresses, especially the Got To Love It Dress 70s!

Lovely Giveaway!!

To many great dresses to choose from... might need some help there!

Thank you, Ingeli

thevintageyear said...

The Madeline '60s coat and the Galliano platforms.

I love dresses but I always figure a belted trench coat passes for a dress in cooler weather!

~Emily~ said...

Ooh I would love to get the Nancy frock or Claire Mint dress! So many lovely dresses :)

Annette said...

I love the Pucker Up Baby Dress and the Millie Striped Dress, but even more I love those bags and scarves..I'm in love with every single onw of them, and since I don't have a lot of money right now this certificate would be perfect! :)

Lacey Starr said...

Well I definitely would want the Suzanne Mod dress. And probably the Lime is Mine sweater. Wish me luck!

Catherine said...

I love LA Vintage. I sometimes spend hours parusing around the site for cute finds. The problem is that I barley buy anything because it's out of my price range so this contest is perfect. I've been eyeing the Lilia Ruffle dress for ages so with the $100 I would definitley buy that. I would also get the T strap Low Wedges and the Baske Box Bag. I would buy everything if I could, but I'm pretty sure that would cost way over $100.

Erin said...

Oh my good gravy boat! There is far too much to choose from. Some of those dresses are going to haunt my dreams, but if I had to choose something to spend money on I can't help but cave in on the 80s flowers and peacocks shorts and those tapestry granny boots. Make a statement, AND spread some floral joy in the upcoming late winter/early spring looks.

You're an absolute doll. Thank you for doing this!

Kiss.

i love these clothes!!! but sadly, many of the dresses i like are the ones that are sold out =X from the MANY remaining, i would go for the Starlo 80's dress and pair it with my black tights and the Maple Oxfords. This would be over $100 total but I'd be willing to get it at the discounted price after the gift card!! :)
