Le Sigh

1920's blue crepe-chiffon flutter dress - $350

I was having a poke about on Etsy when I came across a fabulous seller with amazing antique and vintage dresses- Timeless Vixen Vintage. All the dresses sold have a high price tag but this is due to their great condition and wow factor. Each dress for sale really is a collectors item, there's no polyester 70's tackyness to be found in this vintage shop! The blue dress above makes me want to cry a little. It's just so pretty! I've selected a few of my favourite ensembles from the shop. The cape at the end of this post is really really mad. You'd have to be a mega dramatic person to be able to pull it off. I could easily write an essay on why I like each of the pieces, but I've waffled on enough so will let the pictures speak for themselves. As usual, click to enlarge and see the yummy details.....look out for the bunches of grapes made from lace.

So intricate and beautiful. They had books full of photos like this at my school, amazing vintage goodness.

They dont make clothes like this anymore, shame!

at a push, the blue one is my favourite too, and its probably the most wearable....but the tiered leaf one is so unusual, and the green and black lace one uses my favourite colours....conclusively, they're all pretty much to die for!
