Inspiration: Vintage Feel

This season, one of the biggest trends we've spotted is a vintage look that goes back to the 50s and early 60s.  It's all about classic cuts, A-lines, pencil skirts, and emphasizing femininity.  We love how the look is being updated with new fabrics, fabulous prints, and killer shoes without losing any of its charm or grace.  Here are a few fave pics off the runways for Fall 2010 from Prada, Louis Vuitton, Veronique Leroy, and Mulberry:

To recreate the runway trend, think tailored knits and tweeds, full skirts, fur (or faux fur) trims, and sculpted tops.  And don't forget your pearls and diamonds!  These outfits are classic and timeless, especially for fall/winter.  The cuts let you look structured even when you have a lot of layers on for chilly weather!  Below is some more inspiration to get your closet creativity humming...

So chic, even 50 years later!

LOVE these behind the scene pics of Mad Men...ultimate visual feast!
Of course, Gramercy is stocked with adorable items to give you the look.  We are obsessed with this amazing leather belts by B-low the Belt!  They come in black and tan and give every outfit that touch of vintage detail:

So amazing...We threw one on top of an amazing cashmere Magaschoni wrap sweater.  It really makes the entire outfit pop.  Wear them on top of sweaters, around blouses, over a-line dresses and skirts, or anything else!  Pair it with heels and simple stud earrings for a perfect 50s look!
