Lilly Pulitzer for Men???

Received a pile of men's clothing from a relative of mine. I usually don't deal with men's clothing unless if it is to wear for myself or to give to a friend. Well on top of the pile was this Men's Lilly Pulitzer floral summer shirt and tie. I looked at it in horror. I wanted to look away, but it is like a good horror film, you want to look away but you cant. Quoting the Website dressthatman.com , "It takes a special man to wear Lilly's vintage line....." And I managed to find that man. My good friend Marc asked if he could have it. I said, "Sure, just dont wear it in public." I also made him try it on so I could take a picture of him. Actually he looks quite cute in the the ensemble, but if I could find a blazer to tone it down a bit it might be ok.... I also have a pulitzer blazer but it is too big for him.... (PHEW!!)

Marc was a sport and let me take the picture. He thinks he is not cute, but he is.... And he is a very good friend!!!! So dressthatmans was right in that respect!!! Check out theri site they have a nice selection of Pulitzer Menswear for you to browse through.

The Fashion Birdcage Vintage Edition

The Fashion Bird Magazine an online magazine which features art and fashion just came out with a vintage fashion issue. Lots of large shots and feature articles featuring vintage clothing. I was very excited that Listitcafe was featured in a section. The magazine is edited by Enkha Balazic and the vintage section was edited by Louise Sleigh of Catwalk Creative Vintage

It has been great seeing vintage clothing being mixed with non vintage clothing in online magazines such as NEET magazine and Prim Magazine. All these sources are great places to finad inspriation on how to mix and match vintage clothing. People dont see the possibi;ities you have when you mix and match vintage clothing with current clothing. And I always say, "Just because I run a online vintage clothing store does not mean I am a timewarp" You can creat very current looks with and edge using vintage clothing. Part of the fun of buying vintage is experimenting with looks that reflect your own personal style.
