Welcome to the latest installment of Breakfast at Ruche. Grab your Pumpkin Spice Latte and settle in for a lesson in vintage clothing! This time around our creative photographer Jesse met up with Nicholas, the vintage-savvy owner of The Fine Art of Design, to delve deeper into the vintage eras that inspire us. Jessie is always one of the important contributors to our lookbooks, so it made perfect sense for her to host this fun episode.  

We used this charming vintage store in Palm Springs as one of the locations in our fall lookbook, One Fine Day. Watch the video for a peek inside the store and to see Nicholas’s vintage clothing picks from each decade. Nicholas was kind enough to share a wonderful description of the history and details behind each piece, adding to our knowledge store about previous eras, polka dots, and peplum!

To learn more about the vintage styles of past decades, from the Art Deco 20’s to the mod 60’s, see our Vintage Clothing Guide. And if you want to see how this fun location was incorporated into a fashion shoot, be sure to view our fall lookbook, One Fine Day!
