Back from LA




I got back from my trip to LA yesterday. I spent some time visiting old childhood friends and school friends. It was a good trip. I was really missing the days when I lived in LA, so this trip was very necessary. I got to visit a lot of the places I used to go frequently like Amoeba and JetRag. There was also a trip to Disneyland (obviously). All in all, it was good. But now I'm back home and shipping out your orders!

Whatever Works

FINALLY! They finally released the trailer for Whatever Works. A film I've been waiting FOREVER for! My favorite director of all time, Woody Allen, returns to New York and casts one of my favorite actors, Larry David, in a new comedy! I'm so exccciiiiittteeeedddd! Now I'm just waiting for the day Woody is the lead actor in one of his films again! I miss those days!

Oh Orla Kiely!

Every time I walk by the Orla Kiely for Target display, I get depressed because I want EVERYTHING and can't have it all! The colors, texture, everything screams 70s Danish! Give me!!

Thanks Apartment Therapy!

Audrey Tautou New Face of Chanel!

Couldn't be happier!

Postcard Thoughts

A postcard book my flickr friend Nicole is working on. Brilliant type. Great idea for a photo/thought diary.

BLOG CRUSH - Positively Melancholy

A recent customer and new best friend, Stephanie, has an amazing blog. I found out about it when I woke up this morning, and already I feel like I have to share it with everyone! The design alone on this blog is something worth getting excited about. The clean design and great type make this blog so iconic! Stephanie posts about what she's wearing, current fashion topics, favorite editorials and even gives us a look into her personal life. The best part for me is that she's only 18 and it seems like she's doing so much! And ohhh she has the cutest new kitten! But wait! It gets better, Stephanie struggles with CFS which has made her immobile for the past 3 years. This certainly won't be stopping her though, I mean look at her! She's beautiful and talented and isn't going to let anything get in her way!

**UPDATE: The two photos on top are of the lovely Stephanie in our wicker heart necklace!

The Boat That Rocked

I saw the trailer for this movie today. I'm sure a lot of you have seen it by now, but hey! Maybe not! I think the narrator and some of the writing sounds a little cheesy, besides that it looks SO GOOD! It has PSH, Rhys Darby and Nick Frost in it!!! Some of my all time favorites! I'm embarrassingly stoked about this movie.

Jack Peñate - Tonight's Today

I've had this song stuck in my head for the past 5 days.


Merily Leis
Student/Fashion Blogger
Age, 15
Saku, Estonia
Sequin Magazine


I first found Merily on where I quickly fell in love with her style. This girl knows how to mix handmade pieces, cheap finds and vintage pieces better than anyone I've seen. For being only 15 years old, Merily has accomplished so much and has a lot in store for her in the next few years. In her blog, Merily gives you a look at all of her handmade pieces and designs. Her designs are brilliant and original! Did I mention she's an absolute doll too? She's been such a pleasure to chat back and forth with. In our interview, Merily talks about how living in Estonia effects her fashion and how she hopes to bring her country its first vintage shop!


Q: Hello Merily, how are you?
A: I'm fine, thank you :)

Q: You dress in a lot of vintage, what is your favorite thing about vintage clothing?
A: I like the fact that every piece is unique and has its history. Also, you can really count on the good quality of vintage.

Q: You live in Estonia, a country a lot of people don't know too much about. Tell us a few reason's why we should love Estonia.
A: Estonia is very versatile. The lovely dollhouse-looking houses from the middle-ages are next to modern buildings and it's all surrounded with beautiful nature- fens, lakes, forests. The warm summers and snowy winters are nice too!


Q: Do you think living in Estonia helps or hurts your fashion sense?
A: I wouldn't say that living here hurts my fashion sense, but I can't really say that it helps too. It's hard to take it like this, I can't say that the place where I live has no impact on the way I dress, but I don't know is it a good or bad thing since I've never lived anywhere else.

Q: What's one accessory you can't live without?
A: Bags! I always have to carry tons of stuff with me so really big bags are just irreplaceable.


Q: If you didn't live in Estonia, where would you like to live?
A: I'm more of a city girl, so I'd probably choose NY or LA. I'm a huge fan of Sweden as well, so Stockholm could be one option too.

Q: Where would you like to be in 10 years?
A: I would be 25 then, so I would see myself working in fashion industry. Have a great education and degree and I would like to open the first vintage store in Estonia (yes, we don't have one!)


Q: What is the best movie ever made?
A: Amelie. I have seen it a million times (not even exaggerating) and this movie is just mindblowing. The soundtrack, those details, great actors and honest storyline make this movie my all-time favourite.

Q: Who is your style icon?
A: Hmm. I don't think I have one. I mean, I admire the style many iconic women- Agyness Deyn, Audrey Hepburn, Mary-Kate Olsen, Jacqueline Kennedy but I don't have this one and only style icon whose style I try to venerate.


Q: What are your top 3 favorite musicians or bands?
A: The Kooks, Lykke Li and System of a Down

Q: What is your favorite item for sale at 1918 Vintage?
A: I love the Sugar Cane Dress, It looks like the kind of dress you could spend your whole summer in. I love the Smarty Pants Glasses too- very nerdy, very me! :D
