Vintage Spring Fashion Fever

By .

Spring is in the air and it’s time to think  fun, flirty and floral.  I’ve been frantically adding all kinds of pretty vintage dresses to my site that are perfect for daytime, dinner dates, informal weddings, garden parties, or anywhere you want to look retroliciously ravishing!!!

Here’s a little peek at some stuff I’ve just added.  Aside from the fact that these dresses from the 50s  are so cute,  most of them came from an estate where the woman left a closet full of clothes that were unworn with original tags hanging on them. Of course, because I’m a clean freak, I removed the tags from most of them to launder the dresses, because I don’t like sending customers dusty vintage clothing smelling of old closets.  Oh, did I mention most are larger sizes, with waist measurements of 29-32″?   Hard to find really stylish vintage dresses in these sizes.  So you can imagine how excited I was when I acquired these.

So, vintage stylistas, feast your eyes on some of my latest offerings.

    Hi Tory
    Those are dresses we have listed for sale on our website. We don’t rent dresses. You would need to visit the site to see which ones are still available. But we are always adding new things!

    me and two of my friends are auditioning to sing the song “Mama I’m a Big Girl Now” from “Hairspray” for the west michigan showcase and wanted to wear the type of dresses from that movie/musical.
    are you selling/renting out the dresses in the top picture? if not, do you know where i can find similar ones?
    please get back to me as soon as possible.
    thank you.
