Another vintage 50s little black dress just listed

I have just listed another classic little black dress by one of my favourite vintage brands Carlye. They were such a quality brand. It has alternating rows of inset lace and half-moon-shaped pintucking. I just love the double box-pleated skirt too. The belt isn't original and is not that old but is included. I think the gold trim sets it off.  If you care to have a look please go to

Another perfect little black dress has arrived

Wow, 'New Look' styling at its best. This divine LBD is by Doris Dodson and looks to have never been worn with its original little tailored belt. Has wonderful red organza lining under the skirt to create the bubble hem. Available at

Pretty in pink ... gingham that is

Top 3 photos copyright Carla Coulson

When I spotted the top three delightful photos by the lovely Carla Coulson taken at the Tuileries Garden in Paris recently I was reminded of a dress I have listed on

Pink gingham is so perfect for spring don't you think. Mine originates from the sixties, has never been worn and still has swing tags attached. Such a rare gem.

I highly recommend having a look at Carla's website and blog. Not only is she an acclaimed photographer who originates from Australia and now lives in Paris with her Italian husband but she is also a published author who has written four very readable books. On top of all this she is a thoroughly nice person.
