The Sights of Sounds

While on sourcing and shopping trips we don’t always just pick up amazing vintage clothing.  We were excited to pick up these picture disc’s for musical inspiration while do what we do here at LDV Vintage.

Looking for 70s Rock and Roll goodies?  Take a gander at our Etsy store, its one of our best grooves!

Boardwalk Empire Collection

For Season Four of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” television series, I had the honor of being the Costume Coordinator for the production.  I mostly kept budgets and organized the costume departments logistics and errands.  However, because the sheer mass of garments that the show had in its possession, I was constantly surrounded by perfect examples of vintage 1920s clothing, or saw the mastery of the design and construction of newly made pieces that were period correct down to the smallest detail.  As some of you know, the last season of “Boardwalk Empire” came to a close a few weeks ago, and as I said before, there were a lot of clothes to get rid of!  Along with many of my colleagues, spanning many different television productions across New York City, we flocked to Steiner Studios to get what we could of the historical show (historical both in period AND impact!)

I have released some of the pieces for sale at LDV Vintage.  Enjoy!

We had the pleasure of attending Etsy Studios almost a month ago as part of the NYC Vintage Sellers Team.  Hosted by Sammy Davis of SammyDVintage.com and Simone of Erstwhile Style, Le Double Ve was the proud receivers of Sammy’s ‘SEO Smackdown for Etsy Sellers’ makeover!  We learned an incredible amount of information on how we can improve our shop!
