Vinspiration: Marianne Faithfull

Name: Marianne Faithfull
Occupation: Singer/songwriter, actress, muse
Claim to fame: She began as a chanteuse in the 60's, but her music became secondary to her colorful personal life. Sex, drugs and rock and roll ruled this ladies life for a long time and her long-term relationships with Mick Jagger and heroin took center stage for awhile. Though she was dealt some rough cards, she managed to overcome her demons and return to music...

The lovely Marianne...

Two more pieces that could soon be yours...

Hi darlings,

Sorry we've been so distant. Promise it's only because we've been working so hard to get this little project off the ground!

Had a quick shoot on the roof yesterday. Two more dresses that will be up for grabs come the launch of our ebay store!

Things are looking good for a November 1st launch and we couldn't be more excited!

Greetings Earthlings, Azil here. Haley and I had another rooftop photo-shoot. It was a beautiful, warm, September evening, and I had the urge to shoot. The lighting was this pretty pink-gray colour and I couldn't resist. The fruits of a lazy fall afternoon, with Haley Grossmith, who rocks any vintage look...

Sweet Sounds: The Duhks

Hello darlings!

Aside from our passion for vintage fashion, gems and stones - there is another love we hold very dear to us. That love is music. So on top of blogging about our fashion finds and inspiration, we will from time to time introduce you to some of our favorite artists in hopes that you will love them as much as we do!

First up, Winnipeg darlings THE DUHKS. Now this is an act that simply cannot be summed up in one genre. They are an eclectic blend of everything from bluegrass to afro-beat to folk to world music. Musicianship? Fantastic... but the voice of singer Sara Dugas is simply other-worldly. After finally seeing them live last night, Allison has come to the decision that Sara cannot actually be human.

See here:

and also here (especially when it picks up in the second half):

Verdict? We love The Duhks.

Find out more about them here:

These dresses and more will be available upon the launch of the online store! (I promise we're working as hard as we can on getting that sucker together!)

Introducing: Chateau '73

Hello hello and welcome to Vintage Heart!

You might be wondering who we are, where we came from and why we're here...

We are two crazy gals that are in the process of building an online vintage clothing and reworked jewelry store - and we thought it would be fun to have a blog to go along with it!

For now you can follow us as we gather trinkets, make jewelry, have photo shoots and set up our store! We'll let you in on our finds, our inspiration, and our adventures!

Once the store is launched you will be able to keep tabs on us and see the latest items before they're posted to the store!

We've just moved into a beautiful penthouse apartment in the High Park area of Toronto and we are busying ourselves with turning it into a cozy, trinket-laden wonderland! We've dubbed the digs Chateau '73 and are on the hunt for decor to make the name ring true! Vintage lace, bottles, art, knick knacks - we want it all, and you get to come along for the ride!

Here's some photographs of the place bare bones - pre-chateau makeover:

We had a successful mission to a thrift shop on the outskirts of town last night. Bought some bits and pieces that are sure to spruce up the place...

Stay tuned!

Vintage Junkie and Jill of too many trades.

The fashion trend you'll never catch me in: crocks

The one food I simply cannot resist: cheese - it's the one reason I'm not a vegan.

I'm deathly afraid of: deep water - have you seen the things that live down there?
