Vintage Garment Labels: What's In A Name?
Vintage Bolero Label: Amour
A Delightful Vintage Bolero Find For My Styling Adventures!
Once in a great while I come across a vintage find that has a lot of personality. This bolero jacket is not only wonderfully imagined and sewn it has the perfect label "Amour". That is exactly what I thought when I laid eyes on it and asked the vendor for a price. I also have a thing for stripes, so I imagine this was part of the initial attraction. I know what you might be thinking....it also screams American flag. It dawned on me as well, however I can definitely see myself wearing this out in Paris...as I know they have a thing for bold tradition, fine tailoring and dazzling personal style. Besides Paris is also known as the city of "Amour".
