About

Lorelei's Vintage-Vintage Glamour for Everyday Living

As a child I was always enamored by the glamour I saw in Classic Old Hollywood Movies. My favorites being Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Bridgette Bardot. They just looked impossibly gorgeous and I couldn't wait to grow up and dress just like that. Unfortunately our time is not quite the same and the styles and fashions were not exactly available any longer.I frequently shopped thrift and vintage stores as a teenager and restyled things to fit. But sometimes the size is just not going to work or the fabric is just to decayed. So I made it! I started with sewing classes in high school. Before I saved for my first sewing machine I even hot glued outfits together for a night out!
In the mid 90's I started a Vintage Inspired Clothing Line which was my passion! I loved dreaming up new outfits and seeing them come to life! My friends modeled for me, I designed everything and it was a blast!
But life calls and when I got married to a Navy Man I moved cross country and not being able to be hands on selecting materials and overseeing production was just not working for me. Then I had twins! And my family was my passion! I just did not have the time and energy to put into everything else.
Fast forward a few years, my babies are a bit older. Harlon is my little computer, Star Wars and Comic Con fella. An Lorelei, well she's an artist and a Glamourpuss. Her interest in my Vintage Clothing and Fashion has refueled my passion. I've been selling Vintage and Designer Clothing on Ebay for a few years but the desire to create my own things again has been building up for the past few years. So little by little I've been collecting vintage fabrics and new and making whatever we like! My previous line was directly inspired by what I wanted in my own personal closet. And the same is true now.
I want things that are comfortable. That I can wear everyday and everywhere. I have so many things that are gorgeous but not appropriate for everyday purposes and a little too uncomfortable to wear for more than a short time. I want to infuse my love of classic Old Hollywood Glamour into everyday. And so does my little Lorelei! She loves dressing up just like Mommy!
I hand select vintage fabrics and new fabrics. Its very important to me that the feel, prints and colors are just perfect! The patterns I work on myself, fitting them over and over again until they fit just perfectly! Many fabrics are from Estate Sales so only a few garments can be made. I know you like Vintage Styles because you like to have your own unique look. Knowing there is only a few (sometimes only one!!) gives you confidence you are unlikely to run into a bunch of gals in your same look!
I hope you enjoy what I am creating as much as I enjoy creating it for you! Custom orders can be created from any of the fabrics I have on hand. Or if theres something else you need let me know. Mommy and me outfits are available custom order as well. Just email me and I'll create it for you!
Please come see me often and join me at Lorelei's Vintage on Facebook. And please share with me your pictures of you in Lorelei's Vintage.
Thanks so much for visiting my shop!
