Oatmeal Cookies With Homemade Blueberry Jam

This was my first time making these cookies and I was very pleased with the outcome! I had an overwhelming amount of blueberries that I knew I needed to make something with them so I decided on Blueberry Jam. Perfect for this time of year! I also have a craving for a sweet tooth so…

High School Fashion Just Ain’t the Same

I came across an article on Mashable recently and absolutely loved it, so it inspired this post. The article showcased fashion of high school students in 1969, the rise of Hippie fashion in Beverly Hills. The article talks more about the Hippie movement and self expression at the time. I looked at the article and…

Vintage Travels: NOLA

Last month, I took a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana, to celebrate my friends getting married. It was a great trip and I took advantage of doing a lot of sightseeing to get the feel of the history behind this beautiful city. I went during the French Quarter Festival so there was a lot of…

Historically Accurate

I recently read this article from Seventeen that made me laugh. The article is “If Disney Princess Dresses Were Historically Accurate” and it is gold. When we were younger, thinking about the time period the movie took place in was not really on our agenda. We were so involved in knowing if the princess was…

1920s Gate Top Handbag

The roaring twenties was a time of wealth and rebellion among young women. Corsets were fading out, hem lines were rising and fashion was evolving faster than ever. I came across this odd handbag that my aunt gave me. She didn’t know much so I asked around and did some research. Aside from the typical…

Spring Arrivals

Spring is here and The Vintage Fiore has new arrivals for you! We added great vintage pieces with florals and vibrant colors. I chose pieces that I felt were fun and colorful, perfect for spring and summer. I love these classic pieces and as always, each piece is one of a kind vintage!   1960’s…

Remembering Prince

The sudden death of Prince has shocked us all but rather than dwell on the loss, let’s celebrate his legacy in fashion, bending gender roles and taking risks. It was very apparent when Prince first hit the music scene that he would be forging a new path not only in music but in fashion and the…

Story of the Vintage: Printed Midi Skirt

In my vintage shop, every piece has a story of it’s own, whether it be the story of how I cam across the item or maybe I sat and talked with the owner and learned about the history. I always try to do both. I love this bold, printed midi skirt because I think it…

Homemade Strawberry Jam

I’ve been experimenting with food lately and I decided, with spring arriving, I want to make some good ol’ JAM! I found a pretty basic recipe and tweaked the sugar a bit (sometimes, too much sugar is a bad thing). 

Vintage Travels: Fort Pulaski

While I attended college in Savannah, I traveled a lot and saw some of the rich, American history. On an overcast day, I went and checked out Fort Pulaski. The historical monument is wonderfully preserved. After we paid at the gate, we went and parked and we chose to just walk the self guided tour….

Vintage Clip-On Earrings: History of Pierced Ears

Going through not only my grandmother’s jewelry but also thrift shop jewelry, I always found it peculiar that there are a significant amount of clip on earrings. So I asked my grandmother and did a bit more research to find out that at one point, pierced ears fell out of trend for a while. It…

Easter Pear & Blueberry Crisp

I’ve never been much into baking but lately, I’ve had a craving to make something. I was online and I wanted something fruity but I didn’t know what. I found a lot of crisp recipes but none that jumped out at me so I decided to try my hand at concocting a fruit mixture up. I…
