Wow! Our handmade spring/summer collection is officially on the rack at Petrune. For our second collaboration with local seamstress Fanny Hoover, we stuck with what we love : playful patterns, flattering cuts and vintage fabrics.
Can you believe this dress is one size fits all? No paper bag fit here, these wrap dresses are form fitting and entirely adjustable.
New additions to this years collection include cocktail dresses for day or evening wear. Each dress is unique and one of a kind.
Come down and see what style suits you!
Petrune was lucky enough to be featured in this years fashion show at Ithaca College! The theme of the night was inspired by “Strangers in the Night” . In case you missed it, here are a few looks featuring some of our pieces.
We were so impressed by how successfully vintage and new clothing were used to convey the feelings of the 50s.
Sure its still freezing in Ithaca, but with the upcoming spring breaks for both Cornell and IC, we can’t help dreaming of warmer weather.
We’ve recently received new shipments of spring-ready dresses, like this stunner from Tulle. At only $40, it’s a total steal! Lauren paired this dress with 1960s red cat-eye sunglasses, a red woven purse from the 1970s and red pumps from the 1980s.
We’ve also been busy searching for one of our favorite vintage staples for spring: 1950s sundresses. This sherbet-striped number hits right above the knee, perfect for edging into spring and summer. It’s shown with AJ Morgan sunglasses, one of our new One Swell Gal printed totes, and a collection of vintage bakelite bangles.
For rainy days, we suggest one of our new Tulle raincoats ($85). Isn’t the lining beautiful? We love how it looks with a 1970s crochet knit top, BB Dakota leggings and 1970s Gucci flats.
For a more casual look that will still keep away the spring chill, we’ve paired a green 1970s sweater dress with a classic light washed Levi’s jean jacket.
We love the idea of longer skirts for spring, and this 1940s mid-calf, pleated beauty is the perfect example. Here its shown with an Alternative Apparel lightweight distressed blouse (on sale for $40!), a square 1950s tapestry clutch, and auburn leather 1980s pumps.
Be sure to check back or stop in for more sale news, styling advice and event updates as we swing into spring.

No Halloween costume yet? No problem! We know how hard it can be to find the perfect disguise, especially when most stores only offer dime-a-dozen choices.
For the next few weeks, look to Petrune both in-store and online for beautifully individual vintage costume ideas. Our first option comes from the popular childrens books, “Where’s Waldo?”

Don, Betty and Joan would approve.
A gown. With a hood. Anyone who puts this on is instantly transformed into an art nouveau Joan of Arc.
1940’s teal blue satin gown. The draped bow on the hip adds a touch of movie star glamour. We can see this on a torch singer, a debutant, or a really cool girl who just likes to dress up to go to the grocery store.
