The freshest looks on the runways this year were all about vintage style – specifically, a vintage Americana look that harkens back to the affluent days of the 1950s. Think Mad Men meets Daisy Buchanan!
Now, just in time for back-to-school, you can bring this unique style to life in your daughter’s wardrobe with gorgeous togs from Persnickety Clothing Company, a new line that’s full of sweet and playful vintage looks.
Persnickety’s characteristic style is defined by lush fabrics, rich colors, exquisite detailing, and accessories that are absolutely to die for. From pillbox hats to floral hair clips, ruffled sleeve cuffs to stunning cardigans, Persnickety’s fall line makes it easy to see why this innovative brand has exploded in popularity.
Persnickety Clothing Company started out from humble beginnings – literally. The company’s founder, mother-of-five Corinne Rickenbach, sewed a small amount of clothing in her home, then peddled her wares at farmer’s markets across Utah.
Corinne’s offerings were so eye-catching and unique that word of mouth spread like wildfire – and demand for Pernickety began to grow. At the same time, her husband Craig had the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua. On this life-changing trip, Craig laid the groundwork for Persnickety’s “Buy One, Give One” program, a core concept underlying the company’ charitable giving mission.
For each item of Persnickety clothing purchased, the company donates an article of clothing to a child in a developing country. Even better, Persnickety employs a network of Nicaraguan women to hand-sew all of the clothing for donation – a partnership that both provides additional income to local women, helping them become self-sufficient, and aids needy children. Persnickety also partners with the Giving Hope Society, a charitable organization that builds orphanages in Guatemala.
All of this means you can dress your daughter in high style – and feel great about helping less-fortunate children at the same time!
This fall, Persnickety Clothing Company’s offerings include a selection of dresses, outfits, separates and, of course, accessories that’ll take your daughter from school to special events with ease.
For dress-up occasions, Persnickety’s Peacock Blue Emma Dress offers a splash of rich color. Topped with adorable, lacy cap sleeves and a golden floral bow belt, this dress’ teal A-line skirt swirls with jewel tones.
For a complete look that’s sure to turn heads, accessorize with the Incredible Pillbox Hat and Chloe Clip. This two piece set includes a lacy pillbox hat that’s a blast straight from the vintage past. It’s topped with a removable flower clip in tones of peacock blue and gold that perfectly complements the Emma Dress. The flower can also be worn as a hair clip.
For a lux look on chilly autumn days, Persnickety’s Rosemarie Green Velvet Vintage Coat will dress up your toddler or little girl’s look. The sumptuous, jewel-toned fabric features a neckline bow and big, wooden buttons for that authentic vintage look that’s so fresh and now.
Complement this cute coat with a matching pillbox hat, complete with a green velvet rose.
Your little one will snuggle up in style with the Victoria Pink and Cream Lace Cardigan. With its ruffled bottom, long sleeves and ruffled hood, this sweater will warm up those crisp autumn days. Accented with cream and pink lace and a front zip, this cardigan pairs perfectly with Persnickety’s Cream Ruffle Cuffs. These adorable cuffs, crafted from ivory Swiss dot lace, add a touch of pure style to any outfit this fall.
