Ness Vintage Style + Giveaway

Allow me to introduce the tartan waistcoat from Ness of Scotland!
.....vintage style!

This is the perfect item to accessorize your vintage-inspired fall and winter outfits!

What I'm wearing:

Blouse: JC Penny, Pale pink dotted swiss cotton with ruffle accent.

Skirt: Tropical wool circle skirt, 1950s pattern. (sewn by me)

Shoes: Brown leather mary janes by Candies
& Vintage 30s or 40s brown and white spectators

I think this outfit would be such fun to wear to a fall swing dance!! But there are so many different outfits that would benefit by the addition of a cute, fitted vest like this, that the possibilities are endless! It could even be incorporated into a western boots and jean skirt ensemble!

And - aren't you in luck??
The 'Harry' vest as shown happens to be on sale right now!
50% off!
Until Tuesday you can also recieve an additonal 20% off! How sweet is that?
 Do go and take a look at Ness online!

College girl circa 1950? lol.

I am very impressed with the quality of the Ness items I have recieved. The fit and sizing of the clothing is accurate, and the packaging and tags were equally charming!

I can't get over how bright and luminous the colors are!
 Taking a classic fitted waistcoat and giving it a pop of modern color? Ness is brilliant.
How could you not smile while wearing something that outrageously fun? And Scottish to boot!

The vest features a dipping soft-V neckline, and fastens with 3 satin covered buttons. Front waist has a double point and two faux welt pockets. Lined in soft satin in a cheery flowerburst print. Tailored with flattering princess seams. Love it!

Now - for a giveaway surprise from Ness!

Aren't these the most adorable shoes? These were always one of my favorite Ness items - but now that I have seen them in person, I like them even better!

These are very comfortable - the wedge heel is sturdy, and at a comfortable walking height.

Covered in colorful 'Willow' tartan wool tweed & accented with a bright neon pink bow!
Lined in pink satin and padded with a cute thistle print design!

These exact shoes shown are going to be given away!
They are a size 7 US, 5 UK, 38 EURO
If this isn't your size - feel free to enter for a friend or family member and surprise them!

Oh, why do I have to have such small feet??? I want those shoes! I remember the first time I discovered Ness (through you!), I saw those shoes online and fell in love!


I extremely love your waistcoat. It's awesome. I love the way you wore it with the skirt, ruffled shirt, shoes, etc. So ladylike and just classy and adorable...! You have great style. It's high time I gathered up some extra $$ and treated myself to my own Ness item. =)

I would love to be entered, but it looks like they don't have my size anyhow. :( Bummer. Better luck next time, maybe! :)

The vest is absolutely darling!!! I totally love it, and you look beautiful/adorable in it. :) I could definitely see several outfit options with that. I also loved all the poses! How cute with all the suitcases. And I LOVED the shoes in the last two pictures. Those are adorable!!

Hope to talk to you in person soon!!!!!:)

Hayden said...

Okay, those shoes are ADORABLE. I love them! I have worn shoes that are everything from a 7 to a 9, so I guess it depends on if the sizes run big or not to see if they would fit me...I may act somewhat like Cinderella's stepsisters if they do not... :D

I LOVE Ness dearly... such delightful fashion. And I have always wanted these wedges SO badly, but alas, the one thing I don't like about Ness is their prices! :-( I can't aford them!

But maybe I'll win them now.

Atlanta! I am sitting here in ecstasy! Your Ness photo shoot is too darling for words - you look so perfect. The 'Harry' vest has been my favorite from the start=)

Alas, the tartan wedges don't even come in my size - they are *fabulous!* The pleasure of giving them to someone special with the magic size would absolutely make my day, however. + I follow you, put the button in my sidebar, and blogged about the giveaway.

= 4 :)

In Christ,

Becky said...

I'm not sure I should thank you for introducing me to Ness...because I LOVE their colour schemes. And I have some gift money lying around...
Anyway. Is the giveaway open for the UK? If so, I would love to be entered.
And the vintage shoot-you've got me playing around with all sorts of fabric and patterns in my mind!
