Hey y’all! Remember this post I did a while back about designer Eric Renteria and his brand, Etiquette Vintage Designs? Well, I’m excited to share some updates about what he has going on!
Between Austin Fashion Week, dressing pinup models, creating a new line of aprons, and being featured in a number of publications, Eric has been sponsoring charitable events – sock hop for a cause? YES PLEASE! – dressing the Casserole Queens, and making the world around him simply more fashionably charming. How he does all of this while in school, I have no idea. I admire his hustle and passion for bringing social etiquette back!
Take a look at some of the pieces featured in DFWStyleDaily‘s recent article on Eric and his designs. It’s vintage. It’s nautical. Need I say more?
Oh hey, Zack Morris….

And check out these aprons (worn by the Casserole Queens, photographed by Ed Lehmann)!
*sigh* I think you need one. Or two. Am I right?
Find and follow Eric/EVD on Facebook and Twitter, and check out his website for updates and to place an order for your own custom letterman sweater, apron, blazer or dress!
I have one, lonely blazer. Ever since I brought it home, it has been wishing it had a few friends. I wish it had some friends too… I would happily welcome any of the beauties below to my closet…they just seem like the goes-with-just-about-anything types of things I need!
Do you have a neutral blazer? What do you wear it with?! Anything with a herringbone pattern and a classic, feminine fit would be perfect for me…and work wonderfully with my all-time favorite boots!
I just can’t get enough! Excuse the grainy pictures….
….and the shortness of this post.

If you know your prep culture, you know about Nantucket Reds. I’m no expert, but I am definitely a fan!
In case you haven’t heard of (or seen) them, they are the originally-red-but-fades-into-pink, cotton canvas pants (now you can get other garments, too) that just scream “true prep”. They work like this: the more you wear and wash them, but better they become.
I love love LOVE stories about where particular fashions come from, preppy or otherwise. I like this one because Nantucket Reds started in a single, charming little shop in Nantucket, Murray’s Toggery Shop. Check out the video they produced below to learn a little more about their history.
Do you have a pair of Nantucket Reds? I own a pair of shorts (not from the Toggary Shop, sadly), and I love them. They are a great way to add some color into your wardrobe, and you really can pair them with just about anything – a white oxford, blue blazer, or cute fitted v-neck. Gotta love ‘em!
