30s, 40s and 50s Dresses...The REST Of The Haul

Remember a couple of months ago when I did a big road trip and bought some fabulous vintage?? The one where my van died?? (If not, read about it here and here).

Here are a few more treasures I bought on that trip..because lets face it, we all need a bit more vintage porn in our lives, don't we??





Fabulous 50s ballgown, all tulle, amazing!
Beautiful embroidery on the bodice, lucky I even had a matching hat in stock




Early 50s 8-gore faille dress




Bodice close-up

50s/60s raw silk dress with sequin applique, the lurex-type sash really sets it off





Sequins close-up


Gorgeous 50s chiffon party dress
Full-length 50s heavy-weight linen dress





Such beautiful details, see below the 'roses' along the back of the waist








Tiny little 40s crepe dress, excuse the photo but this one is way too small for Astrid and Dolly!

How pretty! How must have be really excited to discover them. They aren't my style but I do love the colour of the bright blue one and the pretty rose buds on the back of the pink dress. xxx

That first blue dress is gorgeous! I tried it on last time I was in the shop but had to cap myself when I bought the other 2 dresses.

I need all of these but the first one is simply incredible, especially with the hat you've put with it! xo

Miss Emmi said...

Wow, they are so beautiful! I clearly need to go to more parties so I can justify buying these...

They're fab! The pink heavy linen one would be something Joanie on Mad Men would wear!!

The first one makes me think of Sandra Dee and wrist corsages and little white gloves and a first pair of heels and dancing with a guy in a white dinner jacket. Vintage porn fantasies are really weird, huh? Love it.
