Tortoise Shell

 This Septembers Fall Harpers Bazaar Issue       featured Tortoise inspired accessories, which I fell in love with and recognize from FreshandSwanky. Tortoise adds a strong blend of nature and color to a look and always achieves a chic style.

Here is a beautiful Vintage 1960's Orange Handbag featuring a Tortoise Lucite Clasp Closure. This bag is made of man made materials (animal friendly), but looks rich and chic with the tortoise clasp. A great find for Fall, and should fit right in with any neutral earth tones in your closet. This handbag is listed at $13.50 on

The Bow Tie Blouse

The Bow Tie Look is back and I found this article in Vogue's September Issue and had to post it. I have always been a fan of this look and think it's timeless.

Here is a 1980's Pendleton Bow Tie Blouse in grey, pink and violet floral and leaf print. It's a vintage way to wear the current styles but in keeping originality. This Blouse is on $12.50 on

Followed by a 1980's Vintage Lee Mar Black and White Polka Dot Blouse always a classic and simply wearable with anything! If your looking for a great deal on a classic blouse, this is only $12.50 sold on

Fun Fall Knits

Elle Magazine

While flipping through my September issue of Elle Magazine, I found this fun page on Graphic Knits in different colors and shapes and I set out to find some fun Fall Sweaters. The graphic knits listed on this page are priced from $70-$1800.


I found this 1980's Acrylic Knit by Miceli while shopping in Portland,Oregon and thought it was a great fit for FreshandSwanky. So in keeping up with the fall trends, but wearing original vintage from the 80's, I cant think of anything better! Oh, and the list price is just $25.
