This is such a gorgeous dress from the 1950's!  The pattern is a horizontally positioned royal blue and Kelly green abstract print with a white base.  I'm so excited for all of the beautiful details on this piece!  It has a raised mandarin type collar that can stand or lay flat.  It also has a royal blue belt and pockets on the sides with a fun sections of material that hang out of the openings to make them stand out against the busy background  There are lovely clear plastic buttons at the top section with tiny rhinestones in the center of them as well.  I could go on, but it speaks for itself!  Check in out in the shop soon! 


1970's Wrap dress

I got a chance to scope out some vintage stores this weekend and I was blown away by what I had been missing!  I thought that I was a regular at just about all of the local shops, but boy was I wrong.  Now I have a few new favorites!  This little blue dress stood out from the get go.  I've always been a fan of this powdery blue color and wrap dresses are just so easy to wear.  The pleating along the top and the way the skirt flows is lovely.  With some tights it could really be a wonderful fall dress!  Check it out in the shop
