Vintage Valentino- Vintage Find of the Week

This hot Valentino blouse is any hipsters dream! Both granny-like and lace, hipsters everywhere will swoon over this beauty piece. Worn with a black skinny jean, this great blouse is both frumpy (in an excellent way) and fantastic!

Valentino, you make me very happy. This is why vintage is is amazing, fashion is so eclectic these days that if you can work it, you can most def wear it.

Vintage Find of the Week

This stunning vintage dress has been in the store for a bit of time now and I felt it was time to highlight how absolutely gorgeous it is.

I fell in love with dress at first glance. It's deep plunging neckline has a very sexy feel and separate corset underneath is the perfect peekaboo accessory. Lastly the detailed pleating in the skirt is perfectly accompanied by a fun crinoline. 

This dress is great on so many levels- sexy, functional, wearable and utterly unique. Make it yours- it is waiting here for you.

Needed Vacation for this Owner

Can you believe we live here?

Newfoundland is an amazing place that we here at Model Citizens are so proud to call home. For those of you who don't live here, take a sec to check it out online. Look at blogs, flickr and more to see actually how cool this place is.

 Sure we have rainy days, foggy weather and a seriously crappy winter- resilience is bred from that. The positive outweigh the negatives- icebergs, untouched forests, great hiking and a kick-ass arts scene (to name a few).

I have been inspired lately to document my love affair with Newfoundland. I just returned from a weekend around the bay where we laughed, visited family (and were visited), had outdoor fires, hiked and had so much fun. This is what life should be. A whole load of fun!

Vintage Versace

This 1990's Vintage Versace dress is a fantastic addition to anyone's wardrobe. Worn here as a dress, its great shape and  open canvas opens doors with this spectacular piece.

 Fashion is so exciting these days as dresses can be shirts, and shirts can be dresses. The versatility of slimmer jeans/tights have opened the doors for women to run, jump and play without showing too much to bystanders. Grab a sweet vintage clutch, high booties and you are ready for a night out on the town!

Moving has occurred..........................................Check!
Been embarrassed due to unshaved legs/armpits.Check!
Went running without collapsing a lung.........Check!
Stopped putting beer outside in the snow to get it cold....Check!
Thought about painting my toenails.................Check

I think it might be Spring!!!!!!!!!! 

All things considered, we have had a great winter here in Newfoundland, but nothing compared that feel when the clouds part and spring is upon us. Still keeping bundled up, you can feel the unfolding of winter blahs, the spring in peoples step and the thirst for summer sweetness.

Enjoy everyone, Happy April Fools day!
