Looking Through Rose-Tinted Glasses

As winter continues it’s relentless march, we look forward to spring and the smell of grass and daffodils. We dream of floaty dresses, bare shoulders and lemonade while browsing through the nail isle in Home Depot.

A beautiful rose tint is a good defence against the grey blanket of winter.  Either in eyewear or wardrobe, see the world in a lovely shade of rose, or wear something pink and be the rose tint in someone else’s eyes.

Red

Red is a perfect color.  Red is a perfect wardrobe neutral, red is a color for every season and according to literature, red is the color of love.

Whatever the color of love, view it as a rainbow and show real love to the world this year.  Try random acts of kindness, and let’s all be the best examples of humanity possible. Walk that path in love and maybe, wear red.

Kimono Over To My Place

Textiles have always fascinated me and I began collecting kimono’s, shawls, robes and quilts from the Goodwill bins, thrift stores, garage sales, and the occasional flea market. Many needed rescue or repair but I feel I owe it to the world to try and rescue, repair and re-use these items once consigned to oblivion.

All items now available in our shop, so please visit soon and visit often.

13 Cashmere Sweaters

When I was young and impressionable I came across the film Lord Love A Duck on the Sunday afternoon movie. I was transfixed by Tuesday Weld.   I learned from the film that you MUST to have 13 cashmere sweaters to matter in this world, well, at least in the context of the film.  I was also introduced to Roddy McDowall and fell madly in love for a lifetime. So at 9 years old I knew I had to have at least 13 of these amazing sweaters, I wanted to be as beautiful as Tuesday Weld and I was forever in love with Roddy McDowall.

Anyhoodle, with that bit of mad history I present a few examples of the beautiful vintage cashmere  we have available in the shop.

Please visit our shop soon and see if we have something you might obsessed over!

Hand Painted Jackets

We all paint here at Dear Wolf Vintage and that is the reason for the deplorable lack of posts in the last month,  painting is all consuming.  We paint on denim and leather jackets and selected items of clothing.  Some of these things are in our shop and new items are on the way as that’s what we’ve been working on. Yay!

Jon does portraits and people…img_3194

He takes commissions and will paint a provided jacket or one of our choosing with your request.

I do critters, bugs and things that interest me…img_3193

I paint out damage on leather and suede coats and items of clothing, like my favorite suede pants pictured above. NEVER make hummus in suede pants without an apron.

So many projects in our lineup, and so many new things coming to the shop very very soon, we just have to stop painting long enough to do the listings.

Coats, Coats … Coats!

It’s getting colder and colder and we all need to be warm AND glamorous!   I would like to keep all the wonderful things we find but the world is filled with lovely things, and it’s nicer to share.  This preview of coats headed to our Big Cartel shop are three of my favorites.  I really love the black coat, I only wish I did’t look like an aging Swedish pop star in seclusion.  It might be the hair…is the hair too much?

Faux and Vintage Furs coming soon…

p12359880_ce_h9_aa“She doesn’t wear fur because she is cold, she wears fur because she is GLAMOROUS!”

We’ll be adding more furs, both faux and real to the shop in the coming days.  We do not condone the fur industry, conversely we do not agree that an animal gave it’s life for a fur that will be thrown away and to that end we only sell VINTAGE furs and faux fur.

Please visit Dear Wolf Vintage soon and find something to love!Dear Wolf Vintage
