SPRING & SUMMER

Nothing feels better than sourcing the freshest vintage threads! Some of these gems sold as soon as they hit the shelves but this green jumpsuit is yet to hit and will be coming to you this weekend.

In current news, if you are following us on Instagram, you will have found out that we are now in two super cool locations across Melbourne. You can find us at stall 17, Lost and Found Market, Brunswick East and now at The Aquarium Vintage, Northcote.

Thanks for dropping in and hope you love these cool new pieces.

HEY MICKEY

Hey lovers

For the longest time, Mode Madison offered a large variety of unique vintage dresses. This is slowly changing as we expand and extend our range to include jumpsuits, skirts, blouses and now we’re excited to bring to you a small selection of vintage Mickey and Minnie mouse sweatshirts.

My adorable siblings took the liberty of modelling our range and gosh they looked cute!

STATEMENT

It has been an absolute crazy couple of weeks. Mostly I’ve been a mummy to my babes but then there’s also managing my small business and the blog.

When it comes to the blog, there’s a lot of work and effort behind the scenes. Additionally, for me there’s also the added pressure when it’s my time poor husband that takes the images and we have 2 kids rollin’ with us. But we push through because I love it, it provides me with a creative outlet and also allows me to connect with inspirational people all over the world.

After bub number 2 arrived,  we’ve learnt to be more efficient. Photoshoots now tend to happen locally if not on the way to or after a family outing. These images were taken in the evening at a local street art strip after some mid week Thai.

I completed my old meets new outfit with a much needed statement necklace. Having always been a fan of jewellery, it’s always nice to have quality pieces that you can use to jazz up an outfit. This particular piece was from My Boutique – an online store with a load of fashionable jewellery at affordable prices. So go on and check them out.

For all the bloggers out there, kids or no kids – how do you keep it up? I’d really love to hear from you.

GREEN ON GREEN

Hi lovers

The beauty about vintage finds is there’s never lack of colour. You can absolutely layer on extra colours to create an outrageous outfit or tone it down with some simple accessories. What I’ve always loved is clashing patterns. Case in point, an awesome green floral playsuit with a sheer green leopard print scarf. Matched with a hat, sunnies,  chunky boots and backpack.

GreenonGreen_MM_2From next weekend, the Mode Madison vintage collection ( including this playsuit) will be available for you to try on and purchase at the Lost and Found Market, 511 Lygon Street, Brunswick East. Make sure you pay us a visit whenever you’re in the hood.

MODE MADISON X MY BOUTIQUE

Hey lovers

Recently, I had the pleasure of collaborating with My Boutique, an online store owned and operated by local Victorian Dani. My Boutique was founded in 2010 and stocks deliciously fashionable clothing, jewellery, accessories and homewares. The best part is, nothing is over $100 so it’s all absolutely affordable.

Retrospect_MM_1Retrospect_MM_2

Through styling some of their current season pieces, I also had the honour of getting to know a little more about Dani, her online store and where she draws her inspiration from.

In three words, describe yourself

Passionate, ambitious, positive.

Tell us about My Boutique and the inspiration behind creating your own online business

I’ve always loved fashion but never thought I’d end up in the fashion industry. My parents run their own business and I’ve always learnt good business practice and buying skills through them. My business started as hobby but over the past year it is quickly becoming more than that! Online seemed like the way to go as I was (and still am) working full time when I started My Boutique – I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What are some of your most popular/favourite pieces in the My Boutique collection?

My most popular and favourite would have to be my Harper skirts. They are the perfect mid-length skirt that is flattering on anyone. I love the Onyx print the best and it seems my customers do too!

Where do you draw your style inspiration from?

Everywhere! My travels, Instagram, my friends and basically anywhere I go. I’ll see a cute style of clothing or a colour that pops out at you and I create it into my own flavour.

Can you give us a little insight into what we can expect as part if the AW collection?

My Boutique won’t be doing an AW collection this year. There are even bigger and better things coming for Spring/Summer so I’m trying to utilise the break over the cooler months to prepare myself for another expansion of My Boutique. Watch this space.

Do you have any advice for those who want to start their own business?

Keep at it. There’s going to be times where you make little to no money and things can seem like they’re getting nowhere. All you need is passion and patience and everything else will follow.

Playsuits and jumpsuits are a great summer staple and then there’s this amazing laser cut clutch which comes in an array of gorgeous colours and designs. Both from My Boutique which I’ve decidedly styled with a biker jacket, platform boots and hair bow for that edgy retro feel. Head over to http://www.my-boutique.com.au to shop their collection.

TAKE A BOW

Hey lovers

Mode Madison stocks a delicious collection of vintage dresses and I’m making it my mission to show them to you.

This gorgeous cotton midi dress features pockets on either side and a large bow at the back. How adorable!  I’m absolutely in love with it and extremely excited to have this piece as part of the collection. It will be listed soon on http://www.modemadison.com so keep your eyes peeled for the ‘Floral Bow’ dress.

Much love,  Sovanny x

COVERED IN FLORAL

Hey lovers

Vintage dresses are far from being frumpy. In fact, when styled right, you can turn the granniest looking vintage piece into something that’s both stylish and unique. Aside from the great quality, the best part is that most vintage dresses from the 70’s and 80’s era also come with pockets.

When shopping for vintage, you really can’t judge a piece on the racks. In fact you need to either try it on or be able to imagine it with accessories, other wardrobe items and the perfect pair of shoes.

I wanted to give you a little inspiration so have decided to style a Laura Ashley piece from my Mode Madison collection. Although created specifically for a wedding guest look, the result of the photographs from this shoot reminded me of Frida Kahlo. All I’m missing are the eyebrows.

The ‘covered in floral’ vintage dress is one of a kind and available for puchase on http://www.modemadison.com for $49.00 AUD plus shipping.

Thanks for reading and I hope you love this look I’ve created. xx
