New Year’s Greetings…and here I’m finally getting around to posting some of the awesome photos I received from customers in the past year. It was truly a wonderful gift each and every time to see a vintage dress brought to life, so thank you all so much for giving these lovelies a home and keeping the world beautiful.
There was this summer wedding in Chicago that I was eagerly anticipating, as the bride Lucy was wearing a 1930s wedding gown from the shop, one of my favourite finds ever and so fabulously iconic of the era that it deserves a place in a fashion history museum. Goodness, she totally worked it. And their outdoor garden ceremony looks like pure magic.
Elisa in Sweden sent me these photos of her wearing a late 1940s to early 1950s New Look lampshade straw hat from the shop. You can read more about the outfit on her vintage 1940s fashion project blog. Elisa is a skilled dressmaker and she made the pretty 1940s reproduction outfit herself! She also works on historical 18th Century sewing and writes about it on her other blog Isis’ Wardrobe (I’m hopelessly into historical re-enactment myself, so it was a wonderful surprise to find out about her similar passion).
Susanna Vesna, a fashion blogger friend of mine in Abu Dhabi, wore a 1970s Pretty Bones Jefferson chiffon dress (with a bit of Victorian Revival/1940s look) on her visit to St. Petersburg, Russia.
My photographer friend Deirdre bought a 1970s floral maxi dress (with a gorgeous 1940s style neckline) and a 1970s chiffon nightgown, which she also used for her photography projects (2nd & 3rd photo).
That’s it for now and hopefully there will be more vintage dresses found and re-homed this year. I’ll be shooting the spring collection shortly, so make sure that you are on the mailing list (link is powered by MailChimp) and the shop Facebook page to receive the earliest previews. And again, happy New Year!
