Fantastic Vintage Dresses

I'm a bit wordless today so the pictures will be doing most of the talking for me!





Looks tempting, doesn't it?





A lightweight nylon 50s dress, excellent for summer or layer it for winter
These are a few of our favourite things....in store now





I absolutely love this 60s cotton drill shift




Groovy print all the way around



Dang! it not suiting me, I really wanted to keep this!



1950s powder blue shimmery brocade dress, quite unusual too, it is fully cotton lined with lace tape on every seam




1950s sequinned cocktail hat




And just in time for winter, a super-heavy polyester 1970s coatdress.

Ga!!!! The sequin cocktail hat is giving me chills - oh god I'm in love!! And the 50s blue dress is screaming "Desiree just get in the god-damn car and drive over here"!!!!!!!!!!! xoxo

agree with Desiree! that hat is wonderful. Cotton lined and lace trim inside the blue shimmery dress? my guess it was a wedding or bridesmaid dress. Short dresses for weddings did have a popularity in the late 50s/early 60s

Hey Kitty, me again. Just popped in to say the head form is a keeper for me. I knew you would love her though. If ever I part with her, she's got your name on her. xx Katherine
