The rumours are true! Not only is the promised long weekend rain here, but the seasonal sale for TheVintageDesignShop has arrived as well! The limited time sale includes all items in the shop – from vintage fashions to sewing patterns and more – at 15% off. I will be changing the listings over today to the sale prices.

Vintage Sneak Peek

A hint of some of the new vintage dresses for TheVintageDesignShop.

Another glimpse of the new vintage dresses.

I was scouting today, out on a beautiful sunny Saturday. Apparently the weather is supposed to turn to showers and rain the next few days. I suppose it wouldn’t be a long weekend without some wet weather. Weather aside, I scored some excellent vintage, namely dresses and skirts keeping with the SS 2012 trends I’ve been writing about, that you will see appearing in the shop over the next few days. In the meantime, here is a teaser!

Pretty Socks

Anna Sui’s 2008 original sock statement on the runway. Are you rocking this look?

You might think I’m mad for writing about socks on the eve of full-time sandal-wearing weather. But guess again. Socks are so hot they’re cool. And what better way than to show them off with your peep toes or even your sandals if you’re bold enough.

Anna Sui socks available from Urban Outfitters.

I admit I have a weakness for fun socks. I don’t usually go for cutesy. But I do enjoy stylish statement socks. Anna Sui and Betsey Johnson do this well.

Cute Betsey Johnson Lingerie Socks. They even come in a nice package.

Agent Provocateur socks ready for spring.

If you’re feeling a bit more DIY than ready-to-wear, you can knit up a pair of your own socks or stockings.

Longing for Spring Socks pattern by Friederike Erbslein.

And the grand finale of the spring sock handmade pattern list is by Lisa Whiting for Vogue Knitting. I’d love to make these!
