Thank you for posting fresh content every day - it adds sparkle to my day! Your shop looks like a Wonderland and the McCardell grey pleated dress is my favorite so far. I've never seen anything like it; it's extremely unusual yet looks incredibly easy to wear to a multitude of functions...

Ooooooh, Betsey McCall! I lived for that every month. I had an epic collection of those cut outs as a child. I wanted her clothes so badly.

I forgot to comment about my favourites: the forties purple tilt hat or the pink wiggle dress but at bust 36 it is too small for me but maybe if I went on a vintage diet?

lucitebox said...

I'm going to have to enter because I want to read the "Barbecue Bonaza" article! Or what about "Blue Cross ...Fantastic Rise...Rates...No More Bargains?" (sounds timely to me!)
"How to Stop Worrying And Have Fun!"
I'm in!

I LOVE the Donald Brooks pea pod print trench. You're not going to believe this, but I was the under bidder on it.

As much as I like some of the wonderful evening dresses, I'm partial to the Vintage 50s Brown Plaid Full Skirt Swing Dress
( I love the color, the plaid, the buttons, the skirt -- I love it all!

Thanks for the giveaway.

i loooove this dress:

i would wear it with some massive heels,a slick of red lipstick and lots of mascara.

then i would lean seductively on the bar, sipping my bellini and wait for Gregory Peck!
simple! x

Jennifer said...

This dress is just perfection.

The emerald green is so stunning and the sequins on the bodice are so lovely. Whoever bought this is a lucky girl!

This is the easiest giveaway I have ever enterered!

It is impossible to not fall in love with at least 20 items everytime I visit your shop.

The Vintage 50s Strapless Taffeta Bombshell Draped has to be by far my favorite. I am in love with the red prom dress to the right on the front of your website at this time as well! If only it was white and in my size it would be my dream wedding dress.

The condition of your items is beyond compare and the quality of your selection makes me giggle like a lil girl!
