An Ode to The Brady Bunch’s Alice

Ann B. Davis, known more affectionately as “Alice” from The Brady Bunch

On Sunday, actress Ann B. Davis, who we all knew as “Alice,” the wise-cracking housekeeper on The Brady Bunch, died. She was 88. The Brady Bunch has become one of the most iconic shows on television. The fashion alone is something to behold. I thought in honor of Alice I would put together a Brady Bunch themed post today. Thrifty Vintage Kitten has lots of vintage dresses for women and kids that the cast of The Brady Bunch would easily have worn on the show! I’m sure they would all be Alice approved!

Let’s start with the girls…

Vintage Summer Trend Report: Rompers Rompers Rompers!

Vintage Summer Trend Report: Rompers Rompers Rompers!

Rompers are HUGE this summer. They are easy to wear (hello not having to pick out matching separates!) and super cute. Just slip them on, grab a pair of flip flops, and you’re set. I love summer clothes. They are so simple! If you’re into the romper trend, but enjoy vintage clothing more than modern clothing, I have the hookup for you. I have a slew of vintage rompers in my inventory!

Today I was photographing my summer stash of rompers and I discovered I had triplets! These 3 sisters (AND MANY MORE) will be coming to the shop soon. I promise you…if you need a vintage romper, I’m your girl. Now go grab your flip flops, a cold drink, and meet me outside. Summer has arrived!

A Very Vintage Summer Start

A Very Vintage Summer Start

Memorial Day is this weekend which means the unofficial kick off to summer is here! Where I’m from, the weekend is filled with backyard BBQs, a parade, and the first day at the pool! It’s been a LOOOOONG winter in Chicago. We had record lows and record snowfall. (And it just snowed on Friday. In May. MAY!) But I’m ready to put that all past me and jump head first into summer. On Memorial Day wearing red, white, and blue is practically a requirement, so here are a few outfit ideas from Thrifty Vintage Kitten to get you properly patriotic.

Friday Roundup

Friday Roundup

Well, hello end of January 2014. A second ago it was mid-December and it was Christmas all up in here and now whoops…here we are at the tail end of January. Hi!

I’ve neglected this space because I’ve been a busy little beaver updating my shop. Lots of really incredible vintage dresses are now available. I hit a landmine of vintage glory a couple of weekends ago and I’m still working on getting them all up in the shop. In the meantime, here is a roundup of the vintage I’ve gotten into the shop this week.

Christmas Tree Decorating–Vintage Style! (How did they keep their pets from eating all that tinsel??)

Christmas Tree Decorating–Vintage Style! (How did they keep their pets from eating all that tinsel??)

Is it just me or is the build up to Christmas better than the actual day? I’m not at all religious, so the holiday doesn’t take on any religious significance for me, but it does ignite feelings of snowy nights, warm fires in the fireplace, decorating the house with my family, and twinkling lights all over the neighborhood. The entire month of December is one big cozy hug for me. So when the actual day comes and goes, I’m left feeling a little…empty. Anyone else?

Either way, I’m going to continue on with my Christmastime is Awesome Time until I crash and burn December 26. So with that, I present you with my latest holiday-themed post. I was sitting here, laptop on lap, with my Christmas tree staring me square in the face, when I thought…I want to see how people of yesterday decorated their trees! I love looking at old photographs, especially of the 40s and 50s. So here are a bunch of cat vomit-inducing tinsel trees coming at ya!
