Yesterday we recieved a special delivery that we can’t wait to share with you. Our new Vintage Inspired Cocktail dress – this time in Onyx Satin. Its sleek and lovely with a slightly new detail with a rounded skirt a bit modified from the original Bubble skirt.
Come down and check it out before it goes!
There has always been a place in my heart for Ms. Fanny Brice, the Zigfield Girl who made it big. The movie Funny Girl inspired by her life was the first great hit in 1968 starting Barbra Streisand. In addition to being an entertaining film to watch it has 40s inspired 60s fashions. Every scene showcases a drool-inducing new piece of vintage glamor. From hats and gloves, to the over the top Chorus Girl number outfits it is a time capsule and a great example of how clothes can make a movie.
If you are a lover of clothes, vintage or otherwise Funny Girl is a movie that you have to see (or see again).
Liquid Gold is the best description of the fabric of this 1950s cocktail dress. Molten with the soft sheen of satin this dress is perfect for a party and a little dancing. When kicking up your heels the round skirt twirls beautifully.
Bust 34/ Waist 26
Spring is here! But unfortunately in most parts the warm weather hasn’t arrived yet. So while it may be a bit to early for the floral dresses and the light clothes, you can still brighten your day with a vintage broach or earring featuring some spring blooms. These are some of the lovely bouquet of not-so-fresh-cut flowers in our jewelry case. Still lively and full of colour these vintage broaches are from the 1920s to the 1960s. Crafted from a variety of materials these pieces are a great accent to the winter coat that you may not be willing to part with yet, or as a great accent to an updo hairstyle.
The great thing though – none of these blooms ever wilt.
The draping on this dress needs to be seen to be believed. The top is almost like the petals of a flower made of vintage organza.
