Good Morning! I thought I'd end this work week by starting a new feature, "Fifties Friday." In it I'll be showcasing items for sale from the Fifties that are appropriate to the current season (of course I'll be switching this up regularly for my lovely readers in Australia and New Zealand,) and showcasing upcoming holidays or themes that just happen to strike my fancy.
Without further ado, may I present nine gorgeous 1950's frocks that would be just wonderful for Valentine's Day (click the photo to be taken to the Seller's listing):
The Vintage Mistress has an incredible shop, full of beautifully photographed and carefully curated garments. This scarlet dress is no exception. It even has the original millinery flowers still attached to the dress...incredible after 60 years!
Also from The Vintage Mistress, this late 50's/early 60's dress. Lace Illusion bodice and a bubble hem at the back make this an original and stunning garment.
From Fancy That Vintage comes this girly cotton dress with lace and velvet detailing. Beautiful as it is in the photos but imagine it with a full crinoline!
I never cease to be inspired by the items for sale at Jumblelaya. The quality of the garments is incredible and the variety of items (most of them from the Thirties to the Fifties) is fantastic!
Also from Jumblelaya, taffeta and velveteen...what more is there to say? Stunning!
The eye-catching photos and carefully selected items at Dear Golden never cease to inspire me (and stare longinly at my wallet...) This party dress is a perfect example, with its full skirt, satin cummerbund and 3/4 length sleeves, this dress is an absolute show-stopper!
With a selection ranging from a wonderful pair of 70's Campus Boots to a pretty black, lace 50's overskirt, Old Faithful Vintage has something for everyone. This printed cotton shirtwaist would be absolutely perfect for a quiet Valentine's evening at home.
Consistently fabulous photographs is one of the reasons I'm a fan of Vacation Vintage and the photo above illustrates my point perfectly. This pastel beauty with ricrac detailing could do double duty for both Valentine's Day and Easter. Absolutely gorgeous!
With a wonderful selection of dresses and separates (and a couple of amazing handbags,) Deanne's Vintage will provide you with inspiration galore! This floral print dress with yellow detailing will take you from Valentine's Day into the late summer without skipping a beat.
Well, that's it for now. I've got an afternoon of baking ahead of me, including a chocolate torte peanut cream filled birthday cake - Yum! I hope you enjoyed this new feature and that your weekend is full of loveliness!
