LATVIAN (for English plz scroll down):

Līdz ar aukstumu pietuvojusies ir ne tikai ziema, bet arī tematisko un mājas ballīšu laiks. Pašai nez cik reižu ir gadījies tā, ka jāiet uz ballīti 60-to, 70-to vai jaunāku laiku stilā un nav ne jausmas, kur ko ķert un grābt. Parasti palīgos tādos brīžos nāk Google Images un mammas skapis. Bet ja vajag ne tikai idejas, bet arī pašus tērpus – ideāla vieta to atrašanai būs xx.gadsimts tērpu noma. Tur apģērbi sakārtoti pa dekādēm – tātad kļūdīties praktiski neiespējami. Re kādas smukas katūna kleitiņas sagūlušas viena otrai blakus – lai dzīvo 70-tie!

Tērpu nomā pieejami arī aksesuāri – sākot ar galvas segām un somiņām un beidzot ar apaviem. Pat ja mamma ir pamanījusies kādu jaunības kleitu tomēr saglabāt,xx.gadsimta  tērpu noma būs labs orientieris un iedvesmotājs – lai zinātu, kuram periodam kurš stils piestāv. Un ieeja tērpu nomā ir caur interjera un dizaina lietu tirgotavu, kur var iegādāt dažādus pagājušā gadsimta labumus – par to noteikti ieblogošu atsevišķi. Vieta ar šarmu un ļoti draudzīgu apkalpošanu – ieejot tur, laiks uz kādu brīdi aizmirstas…

Ak jā, un labā ziņa – tur ir ne tikai kleitiņas – daudz tērpu arī vīriešiem! Kā minēja saimniece, reizēm pat kāzinieki nāk šeit sev tērpus nomāt…

ENGLISH:

Low temperatures mean not only winter, but also a period of all sorts of theme and house parties. Numerous times I have received an invitation to a party in the style of 60s, 70s or later decades and found myself in confusion of where to grab what. Usually in such cases I seek help in Google Images and my mum’s closet. However, if you are in need not only of ideas, but also the actual clothing – xx.gadsimts costume rental will be a perfect place for you. All clothes are arranged according to the relevant decade – so you basically can’t make a mistake by choosing the wrong dress for let’s say 70s.

Accessories are also available – starting from hats and bags and ending with shoes. Even if your parents have managed to save some clothing from their youth, this place can help with inspiration and guidance on which clothes fit which decade. In order to get into the costume rental, you’ll have to go through design shop that also offers charm of the last century – a blogpost on the store is on my to do list in near future. The place definitely has its own character and very friendly service staff / owners – once you enter the place, really feel as if time has disappeared or at least has slowed down a bit…

Oh yes, and the good news – not only dresses, but lots of stuff for guys too! As the lady at the shop mentioned, even brides and grooms sometime come to chose their wedding costumes there…
