When Oma Vintage recently closed the doors to its NoLibs retail shop they didn’t give up on their love of brilliant vintage clothing. Instead they kept the beautiful clothing coming with their online shop and today they continue to have one of the most seamless lineups of vintage picks that I’ve ever seen in any storefront, virtual or otherwise.
Their most recent round of lookbook blog photos stole my heart with their varying silhouettes ranging from bulky layers, slim black forties frocks, feminine long skirts and soft sweaters. It’s clear that each piece is picked with care and that in spite of their age, each garment is in pristine condition. Oma Vintage takes out the guesswork, it’s all quality unique vintage clothing, it’s that simple.
Here’s the deal, kittens. You already know this, but: It’s fucking be-yoo-tiful outside right now and it’s staying this way through the weekend.
But come Tuesday, it’s going to be chilly-willy again.
If you can’t bear the thought of wearing your winter coat one more day this year, why not splurge and invest in something new for next winter? Sure, it’s a little early, but every smart shopper knows now is the time to stock up cheaply.
NoLibs boutique Oma Vintage is knocking 20 percent off the price of all coats and heavy sweaters to make way for lightweight wearables. Stop by soon and be prepared for Mother Nature’s spring cockblock.
From peaceful protest to critter crafts and chiptune music, here’s your weekend forecast for the humidity and the happenings:
//Philly Tea Party (peaceful protest and discussion) in Rittenhouse Square I love the things you can find on CL– seriously! At first glance I thought people were bringing their spoons and saucers, but it turns out that this is actually a peaceful protest. If you’re interested in seeing what it’s all about, the deets are here.
//8Static at Studio 34 Not gonna lie, this is totally a plug for a personal fav. Support local music!
Covox touches down in the US the day before and starts his tour right here in Philadelphia at 8static! Nullsleep returns from his worldwide Disaster Fetish tour in time to destroy 8static a second time! Oxygenstar, who previously played open mic and drums for minusbaby, is back for a full set! Finally, Ro-Bear, long time 8static open mic’er and up and coming Philly artist, makes his debut performance!
The fun starts at 45th and Baltimore at 8pm. Flyer for reduced admission here.
//Crafts for a Cause Oh man, I wish I had a pet. (For those of you who know me, you’re aware that I’ve actually settled for naming my houseplants.) There was a lovely little write up in City Paper about this sweet crafter celebration on Tuesday, but if you missed it here’s the scoop:
Citizens for a No Kill Philadelphia are bringing together more than three dozen crafters from the tri-state region to vend critter-friendly crafts. Awwww. There’ll be pets up for adoption from PAWS, a book signing and tunes, too. Local favs catFlowers and Steve Notich (above) will be showing, so be sure to swing by the Rotunda between noon and 6pm on Saturday tosee what it’s all about!
//End of Summer Sale at Oma Vintage We got an email from our girl Ada making sure we knew about the Dog Days party and sale at Oma Vintage.
As we all know, the summer is sadly coming to a close. So what better way to fight off those back-to-school blues than with a party and a sale? This Saturday night, all summer items at Oma Vintage will be 20-40% off. One night only! Drinks and treats will be served.
//Blue Oce’ana to benefit The Ocean Project If you’re into eco-conscious apparel, you’ve probably already heard about Sand Shack. We received an open invitation from noon to 5pm this coming Sunday at Tierra Mia Organic Nail Spa on south 17th Street… There’s going to be cocktails and ..fake nails? Here are some deets:
Sand Shack and Tierra Mia Organic Nail Spa are joining forces for ocean conservation efforts in style. Recently named “2009 – Best of Philly”, Tierra Mia is Philadelphia’s premier hot spot for organic, eco-friendly salon experiences. We’re coming together for an afternoon of relaxation and appreciation. 5% of ALL jewelry sales and spa services will support The Ocean Project.
