They are mostly 1960s, one of my favourite decades, so I was totally spoilt for choice!
I'm really loving bright prints in my old age, including the one on this shift dress.
It's the same style as the one I wore here, super-light and comfortable in hot weather.
Please forgive the awful lighting in these shots!
As you can see this one is a similar style, but is designed to be worn buttoned up to the neck. A pity my vintage 'dolly' isn't busty enough to fill this one out properly!
Fine silk cocktail dress, made in Germany. This one is just beautiful to touch.
It has long self ties at each side and a partially open back.
It's often the detailing which makes vintage garments so special, and this dress, with its self-covered buttons atop each shoulder, is no exception.
Mid-60s medium-weight crimplene, these are always winners when it comes to washing and drying.
I love the piping details; it always gives a dress an air of neatness or tailoring that really appeals to me.
So, you'd be forgiven for thinking I'm into florals in a big way.
Florals lend themselves to lightweight fabrics and summery dresses so well, and that's what we need here in horrible-weather land!
