Oh, it was -very- hard to choose a favorite, but I came across this emerald 1950's party dress and fell in love! What a great selection! I'm a facebook fan too! http://www.coutureallure.com/products/vintage-50s-emerald-strapless-tulle-full-skirt-prom-party-dress-small-bust-34

HI- I just discovered your blog today & am following it as from today too! You have some marvellous content. I checked out your website & your clothes are lovely - I especially liked this set as yellow is one of my favourite colours though I don't actually wear it much...http://www.coutureallure.com/products/vintage-60s-yellow-silk-dress-with-matching-ruffle-coat-small-bust-37
I never saw anything like these magazines because they are not available where I come from. Would love a peek... Have a nice weekend

Usually I don't get thrilled by suits but today...Wow! If this was in my size I'd be out selling blood to buy it. http://www.coutureallure.com/products/vintage-60s-saks-wool-suit-black-mink-collar-medium-bust-38
The colour, the cut, the mink....I love it all!!!!

It has to be this skirt (although the beaded brown cloche was a close second!)

My mom had a turquoise padded circle skirt that I adored and this takes me back to that memory.

I love this one because of the border print, and the colours remind me of my mother. She had some beautiful dresses and made gorgeous clothes for her 3 daughters. http://www.coutureallure.com/products/vintage-50s-cotton-floral-border-print-full-skirt-dress-small-bust-35

My fav right now is the SALE Vintage 50s ANNE FOGARTY Full Skirt Swing Dress Small bust 35". I love that "mexican" look they had going in the 50s.
