As we say goodbye to summer and hello to fall, here at Secrets and Lace, we are so excited for cooler weather! The cooler weather means you can wear your vintage sweaters, boots, and of course more stockings and garter belts! But today, instead of showing you what we have in stock on the SIL website, how about we talk to you about the different outfits and eras you can wear. We are inspired by the retro and classic styles of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Be prepared to see classic high waisted skirts, plaid, and bell bottom pants.

“I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance
And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind
The lady in red…”

If this is something you’re interested in, dress her up in some of our favorite red pieces, and you’ll never forget the way she’ll look that special night.… Read more
It’s the season for state fairs, which mean hamburgers, Coca-Cola, and good ole American fun. These are all considered a part of the American image, however, nothing seems more all American than a homemade apple pie! It is the one food that reminds us of holidays with our families, warm summer days, and crisp fall evenings like the beloved apple pie. In fact, many of us take great pride in being “as American as apple pie.”
However, apple pie isn’t quite “all” American.
The first written recipe was actually found in an English cookbook in the late 1300s.… Read more
Music, today, is definitely not what is once was. Electronic music dominates the radio and pop artists dress up in crazy costumes. Rewind a couple of decades and we’ll return to the time when music had purpose and was raw with talent. Real singers. Real instruments. Real artists. These artists transformed not only the music industry, but also culture and societal norms. Before “Bieber Fever,” there was the cultural phenomenon of “Beatlemania.” Add the music of singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and we have two of the most influential music artists of all time. Let’s dive a little deeper.
In Liverpool, England in the year 1960, 4 men created a rock band that pioneered the rock era.… Read more
Halloween is one of the most fun times of the year. It doesn’t come with quite the same stress as other holidays during the year, but instead encourages us at all ages to dress up and act a little silly – even if just for one night.

This week on the blog, we’re shifting back to profiling starlets of past decades. This week, its Yvonne De Carlo. She was a Canadian born actress, singer, and dancer who had a career that was as lengthy as her list of talents. Like many famous ladies, she started out young and with the support of her mother who had also always aspired to be an actress. While she started out as a dancer, and later getting into singing, Canada was proving to have less opportunity for stardom at the time. So Yvonne and her mother made various trips to California where she started gaining a little recognition in pageants and competitions such as Miss Venice Beach, and Miss California.… Read more
