Rocking the Frock: Then and Now

The OV fashion team truly believes vintage style is timeless. Whether it's a certain print or hue combination, cut or unusual fabric, style comes back around to many popular aesthetics from the 40s to the 80s. With this in mind we work to offer fashions and create looks that incorporate these vintage pieces while being easy to wear for today's women.

Sometimes a modern dress hits so close to home we have to do a side by side style a little how-to and where-to-wear tips for the fashion lover!

Fashion Faux Pas or Not: Will you Wear White After labor Day?

We hope everyone has enjoyed their extended weekend this labor day. Though it's September, the heat and general aroma of BBQs feel more like July 4th than the fall ushering holiday that it is. With the hint of fall in the air and big box shops launching their fall fashion sales it'll be time to pull out your cool weather gear before you know it.

The shift of seasons and wardrobes begs one question to the OV fashion team. Do you pack up your whites after labor day or is it dated fashion advice? If you're like us and think a little white is alright into fall, check out our vintage collection below!
