We had the pleasure of attending the Greater Boston Vintage Society’s Art Deco weekend over Memorial Day weekend and what a wonderful time we had! It was held in Newport, Rhode Island, amongst the amazing Gilded Age “cottages” of oil barons and steel tycoons. We stayed at the Salve Regina campus for the entire weekend, which included a visit to a flea market, a picnic on the front lawn, dinner at the Safari Room with one of the most beautiful views ever, and a dance on Saturday evening, followed on Sunday by a visit to two of the “cottages”.

With the exception of Matthew forgetting about 90% of his wardrobe (more on that in the video!) it was a truly wonderful weekend where we saw old friends and met some new ones. A huge thank you to Jason Volk of the Great Boston Vintage Society who tirelessly organized this weekend-long event (no easy task!) and a special tip of the hat to Cori and Roddy who lent Matthew their tuxedo jacket and bowtie so he could look extra dashing during the Saturday night dance. I was thrilled to be able to finally wear a 30’s dress with the most amazing back detail that I bought a few years ago and had just been waiting for the perfect occasion to pull it out!

We hope you’ll enjoy this video of our Art Deco Weekend adventures. More videos coming soon! If you’d like to see us cover something in particular, please comment below!



Recently, we had the extreme pleasure of attending the unveiling of the new Spirit of Saint Louis replica at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome and, best of all we got to go for a ride in a biplane from 1929! This is probably one of the most fun things I’ve *ever* done, and if you ever have the chance, I highly recommend it! Check out all the fun in our most recent video, along with some great shots of the Spirit of Saint Louis replica (oh it is tiny!), and of course some shots of the lovely vintage clothing worn that day by our friends who were attending the event as well.

If you’d like to visit Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome and take a biplane ride yourself, you can check out their website here. There are also airshows and a museum to visit as well!

We hope you enjoy this newest video, and stay tuned for more coming soon!
