My daughter has taken a liking to vintage clothing. She spends time searching the internet for lovely pieces to add to her wardrobe. Recently she decided that she wanted to wear a vintage dress to prom this year and began her search. This plum beauty showed up at our house last week.
She calls it her "Great Gatsby" dress. It has the prettiest drape of ruffles down the front. She found it on Etsy, a wonderful source for vintage clothing. It is in excellent condition and was significantly less the cost of a brand new prom dress. She wants me to leave it on the mannequin so that she can see it daily.
She has an important event this Saturday and is wearing this lovely crinoline under a black dress. The black dress is new but retro styled. I will show you pictures as soon as I have them. I'm working on a "Fascinator" for her hair. Do you know what that is?
One of the blogs my daughter and I enjoy together is "Vixen Vintage". Solanah dresses daily in vintage clothes. She may wear new shoes or have new purses, but they look like something you'd find in another time and place. Her blog is really fun so take a look when you get a chance. Blessings!
