Pretty in pink

I have just listed this gorgeous 2pce outfit on and had to share it with you. I get so excited when I see an original 1950s garment in such pristine condition. This little number looks just as it would back when it was first made. So pretty and versatile being a top and skirt. The skirt would look fabulous with a little white teeshirt also and I can just see the top worn over your favourite jeans. Love it. Made from a lovely cotton and the label is Kerrybrooke for the department store Sears Roebuck.

Latest arrival .... and just sold.

Gorgeous 1950s vintage, mocha-coloured, lace dress labelled Neiman Marcus. Just love the new-look styling made famous by Dior in the late 40s. This would make a stunning wedding dress. Please have a look at
UPDATE: I'm so delighted to have this held in reserve for a lovely young woman who is planning to wear it to her wedding soon.

Back to the 70s

Louis Vuitton (top) channels Jodie Foster from Taxi Driver (bottom 2 pics) in his Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Jodi's outfit wouldn't look at all out of place on the streets today. Especially love those red suede platforms.
