We’re Migrating & Assimilating

Scorpio Vintage has been a long time seller of high quality vintage clothing on Ebay…but we’ve decided to combine, upgrade, and assimilate with our other store THE ONLY HULA HUT, which now has been renamed to:  THE HULA HUT & MORE STORE (actually reads thehulahutandmorestore).  Along with our Hula Hut partner, we will combine three stores into ONE!

When Scorpio Vintage current listings end, they will be moved to the existing store, along with some fabulous items from our recent buying trips.  Just wait till you see the Chanel shoes, and the St. John Knits we’ve acquired.

For now, I just wish to thank each and every one of my customers, and hope that you’ll continue to purchases from our newer and improved store.  Here’s that last look at current items offered from Scorpio Vintage….Next month look out world.

Not Listed Yet, but here’s some “Sneak Peeks” at new items Soon to be listed in THE HULA HUT. (no links yet)

THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT and PAST SALES!  SEE YOU AT THE “HULA HUT”!

“Pretty in Pink”

Remember the 80’s movie starring Molly Ringwald, along with several other teenagers that went on the great careers in Hollywood.  It’s the story of teenage high school prom romance that featured a great pink dress that became Iconic.

Pink is symbolic of pure love, for example & is normally the color associated with girls and femininity. Pink is considered a color of good health and life – we speak of people being “in the pink” or the “freshness” of a newborn babe.

In 1947, fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli introduced the color “hot pink” to western fashion. She dubbed the shade “Shocking Pink,” though today the color is more well-known as “magenta.”   Here are some “pinks” from SCORPIO VINTAGE


A TOUCH OF FUR!

Winter coats or any coat for that matter can be plain, but with just a little touch of fur you have bit of pizzazz!  Fur can be on the collar, cuffs or even fully lined!  It can spruce up an older coat, and give it a whole new look.  Then of course there’s the faux fur, and the animal print faux fur.

 

Here’s a few “Eye Candies” for your pleasure.

 

Made for the colder temperatures, this heavy textured wool coat has beauty and elegance when it’s topped off with a wide mink collar.

 

 

For those evenings out, we have a lighter weight faille in a neutral tone, with a mink collar that is done in a bit of a “wrap” style going down the front slightly.

 

 

These next two beauties are featured on our “COMING ATTRACTIONS”.  Both are stroller length.  The first is a Cheetah print done in a super plush faux fur.

 

 

Next we have my favorite, which is a Russian Lynx faux fur.  Simply gorgeous and luxurious.

 

 

Both are stunning examples of what can be done in a faux fur fabric and are a much better choice than the real thing, and much more economical.


Fall Fashions – Cool Weather is Coming

I know it’s August, and here in Arizona it’s hard to realize that Fall is just around the corner; but it will be here before you know it, and I thought I’d take advantage and get a head start.  My new site Scorpio Vintage has already listed some lovely vintage items.  So here’s my fashion Fall Forecast.

Don Sayers for Wellmore designs have the classic look of St. John Knits, but are much more affordable. Here’s a stunning Little Black Dress with exquisite shoulder & neck embellishment

Next we have a Hand Knit Dress done in a beige wool boucle yarn with shoulder & upper bodice accent in a metallic copper.  Shoulder are done in a Pointelle stitch.  Bombshell Beauty.

Next, we got some Squared toe stiletto pump with color blocks of very fine suede.  This is a much finer & softer suede than you see today.

Next is an Escada 80’s Window pane plaid skirt in a wool blend.  Slim pencil style done in a red tone on tone color.  Classic simplicity.

We hope that you’ll visit our new site.  Click on the pictures to go to the listing.


Scorpio Vintage has it’s OWN Site!

Tooting my own horn I know, but just want to let you all know that the site is up and running with items being added daily.  We still offer the same high  quality and great service.  We even have layaway (with conditions of course).  Come see us at our new home!

Here’s a lovely all silk dress from Oleg Cassini Boutique.  Finishing quality is outstanding.

Another favorite designer I love is Lilli Ann.  Perfect Fall fare is this charcoal knit jacket from the 60’s

One of my all time favorites is this 60’s ethnic Ecuadorian wool dress, with gorgeous hand embroidery

We look forward to seeing you and serving you at our new site.


Those Neon Colors of the 60’s

The 60’s was a wild time, with diverse fashion trends.  It was a decade that broke many fashion traditions, mirroring social movements during the period.  The focus was on Colors & Tones, with accessories taking a back seat.   People were dressing in psychedelic prints, highlighter colors, and mismatched patterns was all the rage.

Many iconic designers & celebrities are associated with the 60’s such as Jackie Kennedy who gave us the “pillbox” hat, and Mary Quant who invented the “mini” skirt, and let’s not forget the “Stiletto” heel.

Scorpio Vintage is proud to be able to offer you a fine selection of 60’s fashions….that never go out of style.  Be the best dressed, from head to toe!

First up is the Iconic designer Malcolm Starr.  This brightly colored floral silk print is perfect for your summer affair.

Next we have a pair of Silk sling back stiletto pumps that show the true meaning of “neon” colors.

This next dress expresses the “Jackie Kennedy” style that was so popular.  Understated elegance in a slubbed silk.

This next dress epitomizes the 60’s love of bright colors.  I  call this print “lightning Bolts”, and is the perfect office attire as so often seen on the TV show “Mad Men”

Stop by and see all the lovely items from this & other  decades


Summer Sets = Versatility

Summertime seems to be vacation time, and what better way to get mileage out of your wardrobe, than to take along a couple of sets, that can double up with skirts or slacks.

Scorpio Vintage offers some delightful combinations that could easily be paired with other items.

Going to a wedding, and need a more formal outfit?  Here’s a 60’s silk ribbon dress with matching jacket.  Dress can be worn alone, and jacket could do duty with another dress.

Another possibility for a more casual situation is this colorful, go with anything skirt & blouse set.  The skirt is full & tiered and the blouse is a wrapped crop top.  With this many colors to choose from it could be matched with almost anything.  Great vacation versitility.

Here’s another fabulous set, this one is from Hattie Carnegie, done in a jewel all over pattern.  Multi colors throughout make this another great choice for pairing with other blouses, skirts or slacks.

Last is a lovely skirt & jacket set from Vittadine Sports in a silk like fabric with a hot air balloons.  Print reminds me of a silk scarf & is so silky  to the touch!
