Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks models some vintage corsets in New York Mag. She also models her own vintage bustier!
These can easily be found online – saving you the time of sorting through a dusty bin at the local second hand thrift store.
The fashion at this years V-festival certainly didn’t disappoint, some of our favourite fashionista’s included Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, who looked stunning in a pair of diamond printed tights and monochrome outfit. Gossip Girl star and The Pretty Reckless front-woman Taylor Momsen rocked her signature look of sexy stockings and suspenders, teaming them with a studded corset (perhaps taking the underwear as outerwear look a bit too far?!). Alexandra Burke showed us how to work lace shorts, by wearing them peeking out from under a jumper dress. But the star of the show? Henry Holland’s Chain Suspender Tights of course!

Many antique jewelry fans think they can only get the vintage jewelry look by shopping at expensive estate sales and antique stores. Savvy shoppers, however, know that they can get the look of antique vintage jewelry, antique costume jewelry, and antique rings for a fraction of the price at Emitations! Our collection of faux antique jewelry and vintage jewelry has the appeal of costume jewelry – no thrift store shopping required.
Since jewelry trends change over time, there are many styles of antique jewelry to choose from. Some favor the romance of Victorian era designs, while others prefer the bold lines of art deco jewelry. Edwardian, medieval, retro, and art nouveau are all different types of antique jewelry and vintage jewelry that you may prefer. Each genre of antique costume jewelry has a distinctive beauty, so it can be difficult to choose just one favorite!
Generally, shoppers interested in vintage jewelry and antique costume jewelry are looking for some certain key features. Black rhodium plating on sterling silver, for example, can give a piece the look of an antique finish. This patina is an easy way to make a modern item look like a vintage jewelry collectible. Intricate filigree – often surrounding real or faux gems – is often used to emulate the feminine, lacy look of antique jewelry. Additional details, like beaded metal, oxidized finishes, and ornate accents can all give modern costume jewelry the appeal of antique costume jewelry.
Certain stone cuts are often found in antique jewelry and antique costume jewelry. Rose cut stones and cushion cut stones are both more vintage jewelry styles; we see diamonds with these cuts in many antique rings. Whimsical shapes such as snakes, buckles, and insects also played a role in antique jewelry and antique costume jewelry. Big, bold gems – especially in dramatic estate rings, estate necklaces, and estate earrings – also evoke the elegance of vintage jewelry.
Antique chic is a look that anyone can acquire – and afford! Shop sterling silver vintage jewelry styles, faux antique jewelry, believable vintage jewelry, traditional style antique costume jewelry, and a wide selection of antique ring designs – only at Emitations.
Burlesque artist and actress Dita Von Teese thinks there is “nothing sexier” than wearing lingerie and red lipstick.
Dita fell in love with red lipstick when she was younger and admits the “love affair” is still going strong.
The 37-year-old told Top Sante magazine: “The love affair [for red lipstick] has never ended – even today I feel like I am partaking in some kind of historic ritual.”
She added: “I think there’s nothing sexier than wearing lingerie and a slick of red lipstick.”
Von Teese added that as she doesn’t fit into the modern stereotype of the bronzed blonde bikini babe, she instead uses make-up to recreate the look of past screen idols.
