Vintage Fashion, Timeless Fun this Saturday, February 8th

February 5, 2014

Ladies, if this dreary, wet, spine-chilling cold front is dragging down your spirits, don’t despair. Emma Childers has a cure.

Emma, the style-setting,  all things vintage maven behind The Yellow House on Union (which Back in River City scooped last fall) is throwing a Girl Party this weekend. Saturday, February 8, 2014 is the date of her first annual Vintage Fashion and Accessories Show From 11:30 to 2:00, models will stroll through the Yellow House showing you how to look fabulous and chic in one-of-a-kind,  vintage clothing from noted designers including Allessandro, Della Roufagali, Cache´, Tahari, Missoni, Bella Viaggia, Carole Little, Franklin Simon and Company of New York, and more.

This isn’t your average Memphis Mama’s closet. Emma and her consignors have assembled  a collection of glamorous, exquisitely made, always-in-fashion coats, dresses, jackets, pants, cocktail wear, ball gowns  and accessories that will  make you drool behind your proper little embroidered linen hanky. You will even find fascinators, the show-stopping hair adornments re-popularized by Britain’s Kate Middleton and Princess Beatrice, and frequently spotted on Downton Abbey.

Nancy Barry of Retrotherapy will be there, showing the latest in her line of one of a kind, handmade vintage jewelry and accessories inspired by distinctive brooches, pins and earrings  collected from southern estates. Two standouts are Nancy’s leather cuff bracelets adorned with antique brooches and belt buckles, and “Bobbie” bracelets composed of vintage earbobs.

Saturday should be dry and not as cold, so what could be a better reason to get out and have some shopping fun? The Yellow House on Union is always  warm and inviting, providing respite from the wearying weather and wicked world outside. Reservations are recommended (call 901-272-9222). Phone a friend and discover this great Memphis find together.
