Vintage 1960s Dresses...Fresh Finds & New Faves

It's all go-go-go around here at the moment!

While we don't open the shop until Feb.18, we officially take over next Monday, so I need to have everything ready by then. Yes folks, the 'glamorous' life of this vintage seller is currently a roundabout of cleaning, painting, sanding, scrubbing, handwashing, steaming, mending...you name it, I'm doing it.

Here are a few more of the vintage dresses I've been preparing for my unsuspecting future customers.


Another pleated chiffon skirt- I seem to have bought a few of these!






Fabric close-up.


Classic crimplene, I wonder if this used to be a maxi.


Such a vibrant print, the colours are so fresh it could have been made yesterday.


Pretty summery floral, again a lightweight chiffon

Oops lightened the top pic a bit too much, this is the correct colour



I totally love the psychedelic print on this one, I'd be keeping it if it fitted me



My mother said she used to have a dress exactly like this....


Personally I just love the confetti lucite buttons, that's what sold me on this dress


Polka dots are always popular, I think this may be the first polka dot crimplene dress I've ever had though

And who wouldn't love the belt buckle!
That's all for tonight my lovelies, I've now got a sticky date (!) with some araldite and a broken lucite table. Wish me luck :)
