Meet Vanna. She snapped up this gorgeous vintage 1950s taffeta polka dot dress as soon as it appeared on the website. Vanna says she loved the red lining of the pockets and cuffs, so she added a red belt, shoes and a red petticoat to make the dress her own. A red crinoline...simply genius! Vanna, you are a vision of vivaciousness!
Carmen's been a customer of mine for several years now. She has exquisite taste. When I decided to sell some of the vintage handbags from my personal collection earlier this year, Carmen grabbed this bag as her very own. She then built an entire spring outfit around it. She found a vintage 60s yellow linen dress embroidered with orange flowers, added the vintage hat, gloves and jewelry and modern orange shoes. Voila! Carmen said when she wore this ensemble, "...total strangers struck up conversations telling me how beautiful my outfit is and those who didn't comment smiled brightly."
