Dress it down for morning coffee around the house or dress it up for a dreamy cottage-core tea party -- this square-neck, plaid, puff-sleeve top with lacy details is the perfect addition to your fun-yet-functional summer wardrobe. Although any remnants of a tag have been previously cut away, this top seems to be made of a lightweight, breathable fabric like cotton, and is even more airy and comfortable given its generous swing-style cut, giving in a flowy, non-restricting feel around the hips. This shirt is fairly long as is (see below for measurements), but could be hemmed to make an adorable crop top. While we're unsure exactly how old the garment is, its colors are nonetheless vibrant and playful, with practically no visible wear. Excellent condition, no rips fades, or stains.
Asta is the fictional pup of The Thin Man, a 1934 detective novel written by hard-boiled genius Dashiell Hammet, adapted as a film by the same name in the same year starring William Powel and Myrna Loy as Nick & Nora, Asta’s wise-cracking, case-cracking owners.
Bad Asta, on the other hand is the brain-child of Kate Dawson and Nicole Horowitz, two vintage thrifters with a shared love for film. Our Vintage Brand is founded on principles of aesthetics and sustainability, with a little dose of old-timey fun along the way.

Purveyors of Pastiche
Nicole Horowitz & Kate Dawson are the “purveyors of pastiche” behind Bad Asta Vintage. Hailing from LA and Philly, respectively, the two met at Oregon State University while pursuing MA degrees, and quickly bonded over a mutual love of classic film. Their bi-coastal journey into the marriage of film and fashion is Bad Asta's raison d'être. We hope you'll come along for the ride.
