Enter to win a $50.00 gift certificate from The Best Vintage Clothing

With the winter holiday season right around the corner, many of us are starting to shift our budgets away from ourselves and towards our loved ones, or at least are scaling back on what we might otherwise opt to splash out on our own wants and needs. I've actually always really adored this element of the season, and how it guides you in putting others first - something that we should all strive to do at various times throughout the year, not only at Christmas.
 
Giving truly can better than - or at least just as marvelous as - receiving, and on that note, today I have the great pleasure of offering one lucky reader the chance win a $50.00 gift certificate to spend/put towards anything their heart desires from online vintage seller The Best Vintage Clothing.

I had the wonderful pleasure of being introduced to The Best Vintage Clothing earlier this year when the proprietor (known affectionately as Miss Kitty), contacted me about ways in which we might collaborate. Two posts were born from our lovely back and forth conversations, today's and an outfit post towards the end of last month which featured a darling heart shaped novelty brooch and earrings set from this great online vintage shop.

With roots stretching back longer than I've been alive, The Best Vintage Clothing began operating in 1980 and has been online since 1996, making it one of the oldest vintage clothing and accessories shops I've encountered on the web so far. Based out of Pennsylvania, USA, this online only shop stocks an absolute treasure trove of vintage garments and accessories spanning multiple decades and price points.




From the incredibly high end, including one of my biggest dream vintage items of all time - a stunning 1950s Dior wedding dress (pictured above), which just happens to be in my size - though not even remotely close to the fitting into my budget, to plenty of fantastic buys for under a $100 (now that's more like my wallet, and I'm sure many or yours, can handle - endlessly lucky bride though, who one day gets to call that stunning Dior wedding dress her own).

In fact, Best Vintage Clothing currently boasts more than 2,500 vintage items each under a hundred dollars, as well as free shipping on all US orders.




{Four of the beautiful vintage clothing and accessory offerings under $100.00 that The Best Vintage Clothing currently has up on their terrific site. From top left to bottom right: 1940s Betty Barclay Seersucker dress, 1940s navy blue straw hat with netting and flowers, 1950s mink bow sweater clip, 1940s daisy and dahlia print skirt.}



Best Vintage Clothing's site is really well laid out, with each category and sub category being a snap to navigate, as well as to sort by garment type/style and also price point (you can start your search by designer, if applicable, as well).

I spent a couple of solid hours on there while putting this post together and only just began to scratch the surface of seeing everything that this incredible vintage clothing seller has to offer. From a 1930s evening coat that is as timeless and elegant as can be to a darling polka dot flapper style dress from the 1920s, a dusty rose Edwardian skirt and blouse set (adore!) to a classic 1940s green rayon day dress, it was all I could do to keep from swooning clean out of my seat.

The diversity, range and sheer scope of The Best Vintage Clothing's offerings is astonishing. In addition to carrying thousands of garments and accessories (including jewelry, purses, shoes, and hats - with scores of items in each category) for women, they also have menswear and children's offerings, in addition to collectibles, ensure that there's sure to be something (or hundreds of things!) that's bound to appeal to every vintage fashion lover out there.

As that's a heading just about all of my readers fall under, it's a real treat to be able to offer one lucky giveaway participant the chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate for The Best Vintage Clothing (for use on their website) to be spent on, or put towards the overall cost of, anything your heart desires from their jaw-droppingly incredible array of vintage merchandise.

  36. I do believe I've got seven of the entries (I'm going to blog about this giveaway tomorrow:) I don't have a twitter account so I couldn't do this part. Such a great vendor! I especially love the Lilli Ann collection and the little Scottie barrette:) A very fun shop to browse around. I'm with you on the Christian Dior dress, amazing. I hope I can find a reasonably priced Dior dress or suit in the future, I know good luck right! This would be one of my dream finds. But, I'm not complaining as I have some very beautiful pieces now. I must tell you about my recent find:)
