New at Couture Allure - Vintage Dresses and Suits

Today begins a new regular Sunday feature in which I highlight some of the fabulous vintage dresses and such listed at Couture Allure during the previous week. I had the light photography backdrop up this week, so I worked with a lot of black and navy. Enjoy!

An incredible 1950's Givenchy cashmere sweater with matching polka dot linen skirt makes a smashing set for the office or dinner with your girlfriends. And yes, it's authentic and rare Givenchy.

An early 1960's black crepe cocktail dress with silver sequins, beads, and rhinestones in a fun starburst pattern.

A custom made late 1950's golden silk cocktail dress with matching reversible coat. Wear the coat with black side out or reverse it to wear gold side out. Stunning workmanship on this set!

A 1950's navy skirt suit with black velvet scrolls at the collar and pockets. This Forstmann wool is woven with 15% rabbit hair for a wonderfully soft hand.

A darling vintage 1950's cotton day dress with full skirt and big pockets in blue and grey plaid.

A dazzling vintage 1950's cocktail dress of sequined black lace layered over royal blue crepe for a unique two-tone effect.

A stunning vintage 1950's silk satin evening dress with a huge circle skirt. This dress has an attached silk netting slip and hand-worked finishing.
