This was a Mother's Day gift for my mother and she loves it! She loves the color and the little pearls and wears it with another piece that looks perfect with it.

A Lifelong Love of Vintage
Today, Ophelia Vintage is the creative endeavor of two women who have the support of many artistic, creative and business people, but it all began three years ago with one woman’s personal dilemma; the need for space and the desire to reuse all the beautiful vintage finds I had collected. I’m Kim, the older of the “two women from two generations with a love for all things vintage”. Here’s my story.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love “vintage”. My earliest memories are cast in intrigue watching Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart in the Maltese Falcon and suspense as I rode along with Murder on The Orient Express. Not that I’m old enough to call those black and white movies block buster hits when I saw them. No, I just had an interest in classic films, bias cut silk dresses, and men in top hats and spats that could tap and sing their way into any woman’s heart.
If anything, I felt I was born too late. Dancing to a different beat I happily wore swing coats, pin up heels and carried vintage handbags. When I discovered that I could create whatever look I wanted by shopping “outside the mall”, I was hooked for life.
Enter Angie, who does a little bit of everything for the business from photography to product research and repair.
Over the last 3 years Ophelia Vintage has become the creation of two women, from two generation with a love for all things vintage with the support of many talented professionals and of course, YOU our wonderful, unique and faithful, customers.
We at Ophelia Vintage draw from our varied backgrounds and collective talents to bring you the best handpicked vintage selection around. With a constantly updating selection of authentic vintage and retro inspired originals we seek to clothe the modern girl in one-of-a-kind classic style!
