Having lunch with Etienne

I love vintage Etienne Aigner, maybe because I can remember my aunt wearing it in the late 70's and early 80's. She looked so chic and her style of dress was always so inspiring to me. Of course there is a resurgence of the brand now, but it just isn't the same, the leather doesn't seem as soft or the details not as special . I'll stick with the vintage , thank you.
Nowhere can you find a better selection of vintage Etienne than Etsy, check out this piece from Fire Gypsy vintage. This shop has an amazing collection!
An Etienne vest...who knew?

Classic vintage Etienne shoes like these from Adelaide Home-sewn are going to be the cornerstone of my Fall look. I have been looking for a while now and I think some cute tights and a few dresses from Summer that I can't put away just yet, a cardigan and I will be ready!

Aren't these Mary Janes from Easy Street vintage just perfect? I almost bought these, but sadly they are not my size.

Detail and hardware is what I love most about vintage Etienne and it doesn't get any better than these shoes above from The Church of Vintage and the perfect Fall clutch below from Samy St. Clair!

Or maybe this clutch from Lillie Buttons, a brand new shop on etsy...Will you be her first sale?
This clutch is too classic!
Head down Alabama way for this great bag from Hayley Britt on Etsy! The hardware and wood handle are so eye-catching!

Another perfect bag with great detail, AND Gyspy Photography on Etsy has a matching wallet for this beauty too!

Perfect Etienne shoes in a great style with classic details on the tiny straps from Marie's Vintage.

But, these are the ones I have finally settled on for Fall, they were perfectly my size and just what I wanted from Sought vintage. What do you think? They came in the mail on Saturday and I love them!


  1. I used to have that last purse! It was so awesome...and I have no idea where it went :(

    Thanks for including my shoes amongst all these lovelies.

  2. Oh I couldn't agree more about the leather. I just love Etienne Aigner and this oxblood color is amazing for fall.

    Thank you so much for inclunding our clutch bag! It simply made my day.



  3. Those shoes are perfect on you! I am so happy to see them on someone that appreciates them and wears them so well! Thanks for the Blog props/shout out! Enjoy!
