    As week four of Frocktober comes to a close, we are so excited to bring you a few of our favorite looks shared with us! We love how we can see the fall season trickling into Ruchette's photos - glimpses of changing leaves, pumpkins, expertly layered outfits, and, of course, plaid! We're enjoying another swoonworthy week of Frocktober featuring some darling frocks worn by some darling Ruchettes. 

    Kelsey of The Farmer's Daughter looks like a rustic dream in our mustard and blue dress surrounded by an orchard. Not only does this dress have one of our favorite color combinations, but it also features lace and chiffon. Her frock is perfectly complemented by ankle boots and Kelsey's long locks. blue-mustard-dress

    Looking perfect in plaid, Brilliantly Kate's Kate stuns in a neutral frock paired with a bold red sweater and our sophisticated plaid jacket. We love the backdrop of golden and rust colored leaves - Kate captures the true beauty of fall! brillantly-kate

    The trick to staying warm and looking chic? Layering of course! Bundling up doesn't mean adding bulk; we've carefully put together simple and easy ways to add fall staples like cardigans, scarves, ankle booties, and faux fur vests to your favorite pieces. With our stylist-approved styling tips, you'll be a layering aficionado in no time!

    A tunic adorned with a brooding floral print is the perfect canvas for creating a delightfully layered fall ensemble. Just add a cardigan in a pretty seasonal hue, chunky scarf, and you're good to go! fall-layer-outfit

    Mixing and matching prints is always fun when layering! We love this red, black and white outfit featuring plaid and polka dots. Keeping prints in the same color family makes them easier to mix! layer-dress-sweater

    Adding a cape gives any outfit a touch of vintage charm, especially to a wardrobe staple like a basic dress. Don't forget your statement necklace for polish and sophistication! dress-cape-fall

    Ready for a night on the town? Stay warm by layering a pretty button-up blouse under a cocktail frock and adding a faux fur vest. A darling purse with sparking details is essential for date night!faux-fur-vest

    Along with updating our wardrobes with the turn of a season, we also love updating our spaces. While we are on the lookout for our perfect holiday dress, statement necklace, or heels comfortable enough for dancing, we we can't help but adorn our favorite places with a touch of seasonal charm. Planning for holiday parties is just around the corner, so we're taking the tables we use for dining and entertaining and transforming them with hints of copper, pretty pumpkins and gourds, autumnal flowers, and wooden details. Entertaining will be a breeze with a little inspiration from these darling fall table settings!

    The perfect tablescape is the canvas for your food and drinks and where much of the mingling will occur at your family gathering or holiday soiree. We love changing a table setting based on the theme or tone we want to set for our party, and these fall-inspired settings definitely have us swooning!

    Katie of Skunkboy Creatures creates some of the most creative Halloween costumes for her family year after year. We are always impressed with her ingenuity and innovative ideas, along with how her little ones get more and more adorable each time we see them! Here are just a few of her family Halloween costume ideas that have us ready to grab our felt and scissors! 

    Peter Pan and the Lost Boys: We love how this costume features Katie's older daughter, Hope, as Peter Pan, and her, her husband, and her younger daughter, Poe, as Lost Boys. This costume truly captures both the adventurous spirit of Peter Pan, and is simply adorable! peter-pan-family costumeskunkboy-creatures-halloween

    Pinocchio: We love how these are all of our favorite things about the timeless tale of Pinocchio rolled into one family set of costumes! Each of these costumes would be perfect on their own, but they look too cute when all together. See more inspiration herepinnochio-hallowenn (2)pinnochio-hallowenn (1)

    Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Perfect for the four-piece family, we love the combination of cutesy DIY masks and everyday attire. This costume perfectly matches how we picture the three bears in Goldilock's classic tale. How cute is little Poe's wig of blonde tendrils? family-halloween-costumescouples-halloween-costume

    September was an awesome month for the The Vintage Whites Market gals. Not only did they have an amazing market, but the darling duo were our Ruchette(s) of the Month! This was our first time having two Ruchettes of the Month, and we are so happy it was Vanessa and Jana! These two are taking the world by storm with their incredible market that travels across multiple states and features some amazing vendors. During their event, we co-hosted a soiree to celebrate, and we must say, these pictures are extra Pinterest-worthy! Read on for Jana's details of the event, as well as more information about The Vintage Whites Market!
    Hello Ruchettes! 
    Vanessa and I were so honored to be your Ruchettes of the Month last month!! We had so much going on in September! Right before our September market, we co-hosted a beautiful tailgate soiree with Ruche and Beargrass Gardens! I could go on and on about it, but I'll let the photos do the talking. You might want to get a drool bucket...just in case! The party wouldn't have been as beautiful without the venue. The Conrad Mansion in Kalispell, Montana hosted us...and as you can see, it's STUNNING. We were surrounded by flowers and immaculately maintained trees and lawns. If you're anywhere near the Kalispell area, you NEED to stop in! They offer tours as well as venue rental for events.  You can see more photos on their Facebook!
    Kelli Trontel and Jeremiah + Rachel Spray took the most enchanting photos of our night!! You know how usually photos just don't do it justice? Well, these do!! The only thing missing from the photos are the fun conversations we had that evening. Beargrass Gardens, a floral artist in Whitefish, Montana, hosted a DIY flower crown bar that was just insanely beautiful and inspiring! I wish I could have a new crown every day!  
    What do you think? Should we hold more of these events? Where should we hold them? Would you come? We'd love to meet you! 
    Upcoming events
    November 8th Christmas Market - Kalispell, Montana fairgrounds
    January 10th - Loveland, CO - 1st National Bank Building at The Ranch Events Complex
    March 14th - Salt Lake City, UT - Grand Building at the Utah State Fairpark
    What a stunning soiree! If you want more information about The Vintage Whites Market, stop by their Facebook page, keep up with the behind-the-scenes on Instagram @vintagewhites, and for a further look at the party (with video!) follow on Steller @vintagewhites!

    When it comes to vintage style, we simply can't get enough. Whether we're looking for a vintage piece at an antique market, or coveting a modern piece that reminds us of days past, we love the styles of decades past. We took our favorite retro styles like fit and flare silhouettes, scalloped details, midi skirts with a vintage print, and darling shoes adorned with a peep toe and put a modern spin to make these vintage styles perfect for today in our latest lookbook, A Retro Affair!_coverc2b1

    Adding minimal jewelry, ankle boots, or an oversized coat is essential for taking these vintage styles into the present. If instead you want to maintain the vintage charm of the item you love, it's all about styling! you can keep a '50s dress true to the era adding a faux fur coat, statement necklace, and darling bow headband, while a '60s shift dress perfectly pairs with a teased hairstyle and simple flats.
