Dresses and More Dresses │ Vintage Wrap Up 6.17.15

You guys, one word: dresses.
Believe it or not, I didn't used to like dresses.
Okay, so that's not totally true. As a young lass, I loved wearing them.
Every day to school, where ever I went.
Dresses on the jungle gym (problematic), dresses to play,
to eat in, to church, to shop, to live in. All the time.
Then I took a hiatus from them. Not sure why.
I'll just blame it on the teenager-moody-thing.
But, since my vintage quest five years ago,
dresses have become such a fun return to my life.
Found a few this week.
Fun to wear, fun to list and let others wear, too.
Happy weekend y'all.


This 1950s Hawaiian Style dress is just incredible.
It has a train-like pleated back.
Seriously amazing.
Scroll down to find it at my shop↓

So far, this is the only dress I'm not selling.
1960s sleeveless perfection.
Fits too well at this point to sell.
But, maybe one day. :)

  
This dress is magnificent. Can I just say that vintage
has schooled me big time in the history of fashion.
Ever heard of Lanvin? No. Me neither. Apparently, a very
famous and very collectible French designer.
Yeah. I feel like an idiot for not knowing about Jeanne Lanvin.
Read here ◄to learn more about her.
 This thing is so 1970s (maybe late 60s) amazing.


And here we are to the early 90s. The kinds of dresses that
I used to wear. And  I'm supposed to list
this thing as vintage? This is probably 1992.
Excuse me, but wasn't that just, like, last year?
