First, Missing Bird Vintage. Love the way her store is organized.Its done by size so you can just select your size and start shopping! One of the things I noticed about her store was the versatility of the sizing. She's got items for Tiny waisted Tina's AND Curvy Connie's! The dress I purchased from her was only $45.00! Did you just die a little inside at the price because it was so reasonable?
I noticed that I have been featuring dresses in smaller sizes and I wanted to make sure I didn't leave anyone out so today's picks include a little something for every size. Also, I wanted to showcase items of different price ranges since not everyone's budget is a tight as mine! So I'm gonna work on that in this post and in the future.Don't be afraid to remind me, my memory is terrible!
The first item featured is a 50'S Green Dream dress in plaid cotton voile. Its an XL kittens and let me just tell you that looking at it makes me yearn for some Bon bons so I can fill out my shape and sport this little honey.
Hello there Gracie. Bound for the train are you? Well be quick about it but watch for puddles.We wouldn't want to ruin a frock as nice as that now would we? $85.00
This next dress is Circa 1950 and is an XL to an XXL. Its a navy blue and grey wool gabardine! I only thought one thing when I saw it. Lucy.Is this a Lucy dress or what? I could totally see her sitting on the terrace in this dress plotting and planning with Ethel over how to get Cornell Wilde into her rooms at the BHH, cant you? Only $75.00!
This next dress? Circa 1940/1950 , though Id lean more towards the 50's if pressed. Its in a Medium Size.I like to call this dress Sara.
Sassy Sara will rush into a room, fill it with gay laughter, intrigue and expensive perfume. You hardly ever see her but every time you do, you wish you saw more of her. You promise to write more often before she leaves and once she does, you find yourself thinking the same thing you think every time you see her. Where DID she get that outfit?! $95.00
I focused on the more expensive pieces that I love in this store but they have a treasure trove of lower priced accouterments ! Check out the Store for more goodies!
The next shop I am featuring has the sweetest name DearGoldenVintage. It makes me think of treasured keepsakes locked away in a hope chest, up in an attic somewhere waiting for someone to happen upon it. Ive bought from this store more than once.In fact? I'm wearing a plaid jumper I bought from her today! I got so many compliments! Even the man at the 7-11 who speaks virtually no English and grunts at me every time he sees me said I looked smart.He actually said that. That I looked smart. I instinctively knew he did not mean intelligent. LOL If that isn't a rousing endorsement to click on the link to her shop? I don't know what is.
Some pics of this fabulous frock. Ive been going for a post war 40's look lately.Thanks to The Westmore Beauty Book !
Mk enough of me!Now its time to open the attic and unlock the chest . Get excited.
The first item I'm featuring is a feminine pair of chocolate brown 50's heels.I named these shoes Sadie.Sadie is a good girl who loves to dance.She dances in the morning on her way to work, she dances through her filing for the day then shimmies her way on home to rumba up some dinner. $75.00
