Ivory chemise

VintageRachel ChurchComment

This is a such a lovely vintage chemise that could easily be dressed up as a wedding gown.  It's from the 1980's but has a very 20's or 30's Hollywood glamorous feel to it.  The base is made up of an ivory satin and there are additions of blush pink lace details put at the back, front, and at the leg .  Check it out with more bridal in the shop

1940's Ivory satin gown

Since it's Friday and this week has been very long and exhausting, I figured I would save something special for you.  This is a gorgeous 1940's bias cut slip that would look stunning as a wedding dress.  With the proper undergarments, this ivory and tan lace gown would be the prefect fit for a glamorous bride who wants a sleek, soft, and romantic dress for her big day. The bias cut of the material will hug the body in all the right places.  From the satin ribbon that ties around the back, to the delicate lace that's scattered along the top section, this is an amazing find.  Check it out in the shop !


1970's Ivory knit maxi dress

Happy weekend everyone!  Today I'm showing you a pretty dress that I found the other day. I made a much needed pit stop to the local antique mall because I was getting really low on items to post.  This is a "problem" I don't mind having one bit! :)  Luckily I had kept my distance long enough, because there was a nice collection of newbies out on the floor for me to look through and I got some awesome pieces!  This lovely dress is a simple floor length maxi made in the 1970s.  It's made from an ivory stretch knit material and has a top portion that is billowed.  The top has an accordion crinkle appearance to it with a small triangle of pretty lace.  It's a little tough to know exactly what it's meant for, because it doesn't fit perfectly into any one category.  It could be a super simple wedding dress for a no fuss bride, an ivory maxi dress for a summer outing, or a really nice night gown.  A little versatility never hurt anyone!  So, be sure to check out this piece and more at the Etsy shop today!
