The Katacomb: Vintage Blog #4

I've been a busy girl over here at The Kat and a lot of great things are coming up :) Yay! So here are some things to look forward to...

The Kat is going to be hosting "Open House at The Kat" about every two weeks starting Wednesday, March 16 from noon to 9 p.m. It will be an informal invite to all friends new and old to just stop by and enjoy everything in The Kat at 40% off. I want to make room for the new inventory, so come and scoop up some great deals on some amazing vintage finds. Each open house will feature a designer, with the first one being the fabulous Bela Shehu for Nino Brand. Which I absolutely LOVE! And I wore her harness piece about 5 times in the last week, obsessed!! So many looks can be made of that one piece and I LOVE LOVE that! 

As always, we will have yummy treats and tasty drinks being served all day. 

The Sophia, has been patterned and is ready to make as soon as I place the order for the faux fur.  For anyone that has not tried on The Sophia, it's a must! So stop by during the open house and try it out. The Sophia is my favorite vintage find to date.  I found this fur coat in Montreal for $10. What a deal! However, the back was mangled and was not able to be repaired.  So I decided to have it patterned and reproduced because this coat looks amazing on everyone and can be dressed up and dressed down just as easily.  What makes The Sophia a little different is that when you decide that you need this coat, you are able to pick your faux fur (color/texture/length) and then you pick from my selection of vintage silk linings.  So each Sophia will be unique to the owner.  If you want a real fur one, we can make that happen too.  

Stayed tuned and I will keep you posted on the events coming up!

Vintage piece of the day: A Balenciaga Ensemble, what can be more fabulous?

Fashion find of the day: I love this designer, One Teaspoon, out of Australia and the best thing is their summer things are now on sale since they are on an opposite season schedule :) Here is one of my favorite dresses from this designer.


Take a look through the website, they have some really great things.

Fashion fact of the day: G-strings are the oldest form of clothing known to man. They have been worn by tribal peoples for over 75,000 years. The G-string was originally designed for men, and it only came to be worn as an undergarment for Western women in the 1980's.

On that note, head over to Coeur (which means heart in french)  and see my friend Mona for the best selection of the G's in town. She will also fit you to the perfect bra! Love her!
