bohemina bisoux giveaway!

It's been a while since I've hosted a giveaway on Fancy Fine, which is why I'm particularly excited to announce this giveaway from one of my all-time favorite vintage shops, Bohemian Bisoux Vintage! There will be not one but three winners this time: a $50 gift certificate winner, and two for $25 gift certificates. The shipping is free and the contest is open to international ladies as well. As always the shop is filled to the brim with some of the loveliest vintage offerings around (plus a great selection of dresses in larger sizes). I'm coveting pretty much every amazing hat, oh my!

To enter the contest please leave a comment on this post with answers to the following:

1.) What is your favorite item from Bohemian Bisoux Vintage and how would you style it?
2.) What would you like to see more of on Fancy Fine?
3.) Your email address!

Good luck, everyone! I will announce the three winners on August 19th!

Eeee exciting! I'd wear that wonderful 1910 crocheted vest with a minty midi skirt, a floppy felt hat, barefoot on a foggy beach.

Oh, and I'm swooning over those Sienna Frye's. And they're my size...shoot!

(1) My favourite is The Georgie- Vintage 1960s Victor Costa Cream Crochet Wedding Gown and I would style it for a night out to The Tree Of Life by Terrence Malick premiere, with The Ava- Vintage 1940s Klingrite Fashions Berry Purple Wool Persian Lamb Fur Collar Princess Fitted Coat and a pair of Jeffrey Campbell chunky heels in either the same red as the coat or black. I'd wear my hair in a screen siren 1950's curled style and red lippy and minimal black liner on my eyes. I'd have a black velvet box-purse circa 1940 and a victorian brooch on the coat.

(2) I'd love to see more photos of gatherings you go to and the cool people you hang out with on Fancy Fine!


cara said...

such a lovely shop, i've purchased from her on several occasions. i love this top
and i'd style it with dark high-waisted shorts, tights and these boots (my other favorite):

i love your blog how it is, but maybe we could see more of that cute kitty. c:

Christine said...

my oh my! what a lovely giveaway...thank you both!

1. I am what they call a plus sized gal....with that said I am really digging the Anita 1940s dress. Such a timeless dress. I would style it with the Joanna flowered hat & soft pink lips.

2. I never tire of your photography, especially ones from your travels. But I would also like to see where you find all your gems!

3. ....nice to meet you!

Angie D said...

Hooray! I love the Janet carved bangle. It's mint green and would go with everything! But, I think for fun, I would pair it with my favorite yellow sundress and platform wedges :) Oh, and probably pig tails!

I would love to see a "day in the life" of Fancy Fine!

Julie Norman said...

I LOVE their wedding dresses and I think that they would be great summer dresses with a cardigan and/or a belt. Me? I really enjoy your giveaways I never win but their still fun!

hannah and landon said...

errm, to quote a favourite teen dream movie of mine "I could no sooner pick a favourite star in the heavens" (can you guess where from? hehe) She truly has the most delicious selection of dream dresses! I think that this is the one though it's sweet and wearable and the texture is perfection!

As for you, lovely lady, I'd love to see more of you and your beautiful pals! I like your little candid behind the scenes moments :). *fingers crossed*

checcadey said...

Oh, what a lovely giveaway! My favorite item is "The Minnie" 1950s dress, I would wear it with a pair of high heeled mary janes and a flower headband. & I like fancy fine just the way it is! I can't think of anything i would change.
Thank you!

Bryce said...

I really love The Helena. I think it would be great with a belt and blur accessories.

I really love those Japanese photos booth pictures. They are just so fun!

1. I am loving the Molly dress and I'd probably wear it with some nude heels and tights!

Stacey said...

I love these The Megan- Vintage Pale Blue Peep Toe Bow Flats 8.. even though they're not my size. I would pair with something white!!

Personally I don't shop vintage that often so I'd like more styling tips and such from you!

Anonymous said...

i love the coral bow tie blouse! i'd probably wear it with a cardigan and jeans, simple but comfy :).

an entry on vintage shopping tips would be suuuper helpful and interesting!


Anonymous said...

My favorite is the Betsey gown! I think I'd wear it with a peter pan-collared blouse, heeled mary janes, and a delicate pendant necklace. A cute purse of some sort would be a must, too.

I love your giveaways and pretty photography...more, please!

Natali Puga said...

I'm really loving the Mischa. It seems like the perfect homecoming dress, with a nice cardi?

I'd maybe like to see more about your personal life.


Ana Peregrine said...

Obviously my favorite piece is the black lace flapper dress:

On Fancy Fine, everything is fantastic. I guess even more outfit posts?

hats and teacups said...

1. There are so many lovely things in the shop, but I think my favorite is "The Evie" hat. So beautiful!
2. I love your blog as it is, especially the photography!

The Vintage 1950s Leather Ballerina Eyeglass Case is perfect, and I love all your outfit posts. :)

jem'appellemaggie said...

Wow! How splendid! Let's see:
1) I adore the lovely Charlene pale pink party dress. It's such a whimsical dress, perfect for a southern belle or homecoming! I'd wear it with subtle accessories so the dress is the centerpiece. With light pink-colored oxfords and matching hairflowers in a messy up-do (chandelier earrings too), this is a wonderful debutante dress!
2) I love your blog, very pretty and thoughtful. There's a nice balance between life and style. I don't know if this interests you but I love vintage DIYs. Just a suggestion:)
3)my email is
Thanks for a fun opportunity!

sara kristen said...

based on my she has in shop in my size, my favourite is the Presley- Vintage 1960s Forest Green Wool Shift Dress. wool is my absolute favourite material! i would pair the dress with a pair of grey wool-ish flats i have with these cute embroidered, fabric buttons on them (the greens in the buttons would match the dress perfectly), and a delicate pair of earrings. maybe something with a bit of lace.

i too love fancy fine as it is, but perhaps styling tips to go with your photos and amazing sense of style that you so effortlessy put together?

thanks for the lovely giveaway!


Gienah Ghurab said...

Oh, I most love all of the hats; I'm a sucker for vintage hats, though I've not the money to spend on more impractical items. So I'd more likely wear something like The Paige- Vintage 1950s Siam Sterling Silver Etched Bracelet, which would go with just about anything in my wardrobe.

I just love this chestnut fur cape, I would pair the cape with elegant pencil dress and long, leather gloves from my grandmother.

I would like to see one day of your week hour per hour


Sia said...

1. The Lolita- Vintage Late 1950s Pink & White Polka Dot Day Dress :)
I'd wear it with yellow cardigan, black high heels and black handbag.
2. More photos of you and your lovely friends

Pakayla said...

1. The rabbit fur wrap is perfection. I'd tone down it's class with some high-waisted cerulean blue slacks and a plain white shirt and a tender pair of oxfords, or even platforms if I'm feeling short.
2. I want to see more modern collections that you love, designers that you would wear and are inspired by.

Nanananataleee said...

Gift certificate to one of the best vintage shops around? um, yes please!

1. Favorite item has gotta be the Ellie- Vintage 1950s Princess Peggy Gingham Halter Dress. It would never fit me, but I'm having a major gingham moment right now and I love those halter straps that come across the bust. Very flattering. I'd wear it with some red heels and a white flower in my hair to my college's garden party coming up in a couple months. After partying it up with my girlfriends, we'd head over to the snack bar for swing club = ).

2. Im a newcomer to the blog but from what I've seen, more of the same!

dandeelionVintage said...

Yay! Such an exciting giveaway!

1. My favorite is definitely "The Suzy" Black Swing Cocktail dress! I could dance the night away in this beauty :) I would pair it with some black peep toe heels and my dainty gold ribbon necklace my boyfriend bought me for my birthday. I'd keep it simple but elegant!

2. I'd love to see some more hotel adventures! Loved the pics from the Fairmont hotel. Looked like such a good time!


Heldine said...

My favorites are the apron, the red coat, and the swimsuit, but I don't really know how I would style them since they are more accessories to outfits/I wouldn't really wear anything else with a swimsuit.

I love the photos you take.

1. My favorite item is the Vintage 1930s 1940s Pipe - The Coco - Lady Jewel by Yello-Bole Jeweled Smoking Pipe. I would match it with my men's vintage black & white pinstripe fedora, a simple black silk spaghetti strapped dress with a red men's dinner jacket & my mary jane black & white oxfords.
2. I would like to see more plus size vintage style dresses on your site.

Unknown said...

1. The Minne: is my favorite item! If only it was bigger! I would pair it with my black garren heels from Blowfish and a lovely straw hat with black ribbon and with my hair down, and possibly a black belt too.

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

Also I love all the outfit entries you post so keep doing that.

2. It's beautiful the way it is in my opinion =)

Helle said...

1)It's so hard to pick a favorite, this shop is incredible. I would love to own the 1950s Suzy dress. I think it would go great with my new red shoes and a red bow in curly hair. I sure would feel like a princess dressed like that :)

2)I've started following Fancy Fine quite recently and I absolutely adore your blog! I love vintage but sometimes find it hard to style and make it look cute. So I find your blog to be very inspirational, keep up the good work :)

Edie said...

1) They have some amazing hats and wedding dresses! My favorite is the 1950s wedding dress you have pictured. For a wedding, I would pair it with satiny blue heels.

2) I like the posts you do featuring places in the city & would love to see more of that.


Unknown said...

I love The Daisie 1930's Wedding Dress. It's simple, but the most beautiful wedding dress i've seen. Im so in love.

Hmmm, can't tell what I want to see more here. I think the mix is just perfect. Maybe a day in your life from your cats view would be nice ;)

Evergreenley said...


Love love those shoes! (if only they were my size). I'd wear them with my super cute demin mini dress with gold accent pieces. Perfect for a simple summer afternoon.

2. I agree with some followers below, I'd love to see a day-in-the-life-of post.


Rebeccak said...

I love her stuff! At the moment the green pattern circle skirt would be my favourite (I seem to be on a green kick at the moment?) - I'd pair it with burgundy tights and a fitted cropped burgundy sweater twinset and some fun swing-dancy type shoes.

I love why you do! I guess your outfit posts are probably my favourite & generally hearing about what you get up to.
