Mash up

The front page of the shop is a bit of a 70s & 30s mash-up right now.
Including all of these pieces above newly listed!

We all know that sometimes a particular vintage dress needs its own blog post right?
This is truly one of those dresses.

Amazing lace in amazing condition
Cute details like the wrap jacket, rhinestone buckle and racerback

But the thing that really gets me is the attitude. The bias on this dress makes the butt look SO GOOD!
The hips are out there as well, in the 'i own this' sort of way. 
It even makes my straight as a board mannequin look like the Venus de Milo. (right half of 1st pic)

Yeah baby she's got it.

The last of Summer

Well this is it. A huge shop update today.
 I just went ahead and listed the rest of my Summer closet. Yep.

Kinda scary actually. I only have 4 dresses for Spring/next year!
I really need to get shopping.

With that said, I am so excited about the upcoming season. So many great things ahead.

The amount of detail in the two 1800s corseted tops (and sheer number of hook & eyes) is staggering. I can't imagine wearing making them or wearing them.

Seems crazy that just about 40 years later, ladies were wearing the likes of this 20s dress at bottom. Those Victorian mothers and grandmothers must have thought people were just walking around in their underwear!

All 3 pieces were procured from an historical fashion archive and are in amazing condition.
In the shop now.
