Dalena Vintage Giveaway

a

Good morning on this lovely Easter weekend! What better way to start the day than with an equally lovely giveaway from Dalena Vintage? Isn't this pink beaded purse the perfect thing to accessorize your spring outfits? It reminds me of those little purses that Victorian women would wear hanging from their wrists.

All you have to do for a change to win is hop on over to Dalena Vintage, have a look around then leave a comment here about your favorite item in the shop. She's got so many cute vintage dresses, spring blouses and swimsuits I sure it won't be hard to pick a favorite!

The contest is open to everyone (international readers included). You have a week to leave your comments and I'll announce the winner next Saturday. Good luck!

Such a lovely little retro bag! I'm loving all the bathing suits at the Dalena shop, especially the vintage black strapless one piece--very cute!

I LOVE this 1940's hat:
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=42487389. it's just so adorable. At the end of the summer when I've paid tuition and if it's still there (I sadly doubt it will be lol), I'll see about getting it ^_^

What a lovely little purse. I love the bathing suits in the shop, they are so retro and unique, too bad I can't buy a swimsuit without trying it on!

1970s Vintage Teal Secretary Dress

I love clothing that is both feminine and modest. It leaves plenty to the imagination while still flattering the body and plays with color. TEAL, nothing boring about it.

I like the 1970s Vintage Emerald Green Flare Skirt. So pretty!

Healthy and Homemade said...

This is such a cool bag! Very Springy

It's a tie between the emerald skirt and the navy tiered dress. Everything is gorgeous but so teeny tiny (of course, vintage duh) it's motivation to lose weight =P

I have to admit, the "sleep my love" veiled hat is TO DIE FOR!!! ahhh... if only i could win the lotto and buy all the amazing vintage hats I see.
I love your blog and I love that adorable pink beaded purse! I have a yellow one very similar, except that it has a round metal closure that expands.

right when i saw the vintage cotton open back nightie, i knew that it had to be mine (i've even been known to dress up nightgowns and wear them out as a frock instead of just being a sleeping beauty in it)

love it and love the shop! i'll cross my fingers until next week :)

What a wonderful and dangerous shop. I absolutely adore the polka dot jumpsuit, it's styled so well. How anyone could have a bad day with that in their wardrobe is beyond me. Love it xx

Caroline said...

So cute! I love the 1980s Vintage Ibiza Strapless Swimsuit. It's so cool and different.

Moni said...

That would match the pink 1960s day dress I just bought. I have always wanted to own a 1950s ruby red suit especially from Saks, damn my modern diet!

I love love LOVE this skirt! Perfect moderate high waist plaid school girl look... sigh!

Sunlitdays said...

What a wonderful purse! You're right about her shop, she has wonderful items. It was hard to pick just one item, but I'm loving the 1960s Vintage Tan Lux Wool Coat so much I have to pick it. It's just a sad twist of fate I live in Arizona and therefore wouldn't have much use for it, but guh, it's gorgeous.

this purse is SO darling! and in pink too *sigh* I checked out Dalena Vintage and I really like the 1970s navy pin-tuck blazer; bust 36 - it would so not fit me but I can fantasize, can't I? (btw, I found your blog an article on About.com)

Genna said...

Clare said...

That is a very cute purse, it reminds me of little ones I had when I was a child.

My favorite item in the Dalena Vintage show is by far the "Vintage long creamy embroidered nightie." I've always been obsessed with nighties and lingerie. As a child I used to steal my mothers long silk nightgowns and snuggle with them while sucking my thumb. It took a while to realize it but I definitely believe that antic contributed to the vintage lingerie obsession I have today. so lovely, eh

Inverted Wonderland said...

The swimwear is for sure my favourite. So cute!!

Thanks Dalena!

Amber said...

Oooh! I *heart* the "1980s Vintage Liz Claiborne Blouse". Secretary blouses are a favorite of mine and the colorful stripes on this one are lovely. The pink purse ain't so bad, either! ; )

a cat of impossible colour said...

Ooh, how exciting! I LOVE the 80s polka-dot culottes/jumper - perfect for summer.

It reminds me of the little purses that were in fashion when I was a girl back in the 80's...for coins and little stuff, they had small beads similar to rice and a soft pastel color background, I'll try and look if I find some pictures on the web...

happyiltis said...

Oh, I love the purse!

On the Dalena Vintage site I like the 1980s pin up bikini best!

Ami said...

I could see myself stashing a few dollar bills, my owl-eye sunglasses, a tube of bright pink lipstick, and an embroidered handkerchief in this adorable bag! It's absolutely lovely.
