I know its been a LONG time since Ive last blogged. Shame on me 😦
But Im back, and one of my many new year resolutions is to to blog away like crazy in 2012. Photos, interviews and even videos! So stay tuned!
Today I thought about the last year and all of the amazing pieces of vintage I have had the honor of coming into – and offering to you lovely people. Well – without further adieu – my top TEN most favorite vintage pieces from 2011.
1940s Moss Green Wool Green 2pc Skirt Set – it was in pristine condition when I found it, which is rare of a piece of this age – and wool. This lovely outfit went to Finland!
Probably the hottest pair of jeans I have ever seen. SO hot, that the model’s boyfriend ended up buying them for her.
This is by far one of the most amazing coats – 60s bright coral red suede – totally Sgt. Pepper! – This went home with one of my most favorite customers!
Talk about sexy! This 40s draped rayon piece is beyond words!
Such a sweet wedding dress – crepe chiffon from the 30s. Who needs poof and beading when you have this classy piece?
Probably one of the most lovely things I have ever come into – and thats because I have a photo of the original bride wearing it. Pristine in every way – this gorgeous thing went to CA for a young lady to wear for her wedding.
At first glance, I thought I was purchasing a peignoir set from the 30s – but as I put it on the dress form, I realized that it wasnt meant to sleep in – but meant to STOP SHOWS! This showstopper not only had a very unique color, but look at those sleeves!
When I come into amazing pieces, I nearly die. And this piece is a prime example of just that. It came to me in two pieces (bodice separated from the skirt) but I had it expertly brought back together. It was found in a trunk of a vacation home, nestled away on the coast of main. And its still available – you can see more of it here.
A lot of cocktail dresses look the same – even vintage. But this one is not like the rest, and its the reason I love it so much. Another unique beauty thats still available – you can see more of it here
Of course, I would pick this one, right? Who wouldnt?! – 1930s Rayon Satin. Um hello?! – The coat is not only dramatic with the leg-o-mutton sleeves, but the train – a whopping TWELVE feet from the shoulder! And the dress alone, is just as jaw-dropping. If this dress doesnt make you feel like the most glamorous girl in the world, I dont know what will! And yes, its still available, at a fraction of the price that most modern dresses go fore these days! – More here…
Happy New Year!
Here’s to another year filled with vintage goodness!
