Vintage Gucci Belts!!

We recently acquired two very chic authentic Gucci belts--serial numbers and all.

One is black patent leather; the other is rich cordovan leather. Both have the iconic gold Gucci "G" emblem and equal instant hotness. What's more exciting is that they're less than 1/3 the asking price of new Gucci belt and (in our opinion) better looking than the ones out this season at

Check them out before they're gone!!

We Found a Billy Goat...

and we're keeping it!

Welcome the newest addition to the Dovetail family: Billy Goat Squirrel Pigeon.

She can be found at Dovetail, welcoming guests, napping on the furniture, batting at hangtags, and fattening up. She's come quite a long way since Jennifer found her two weeks ago. Now she's cleaned up, healthy, and making minimum wage as our faithful guard cat. Watch out--she's ferocious!

*Tuckered out after an intense session with the furminator.

a good tailor goes a long way

Taking a vintage piece that's too long or too baggy to a tailor is an inexpensive way ($5-$40, depending on how much you want to alter) to own a custom-fit and often one-of-a-kind garment. Here's proof:

Charlotte bought this dress from Dovetail (it used to be Julie's mom's!!) and took it to a tailor to remove six inches from the bottom so that it rests above her knee. Lovely!
