New at Couture Allure - Vintage Dresses and Coats

This morning I was going to show you a gorgeous 50's Ceil Chapman lace dress and a stunning 70's Bill Blass coat, but both pieces have sold already to buyers who check the Couture Allure website frequently. Are you watching our What's New section for the newest listings on our website? You can also follow our updates and doings on Twitter!

This week, I listed several vintage coats and evening and cocktail dresses. We're getting ready for fall and holiday!

I love, love, love this vintage 1960's Mod era coat! Fashioned of cotton velveteen in a wild print, the fabric is then quilted with a grid of black satin stitch embroidery. So different!

The ultimate in sultry starlet glam, this vintage late 1930's evening gown is fashioned in deep blue velvet and comes with a matching bolero jacket.

I had to show you the back of this vintage 80's cashmere evening suit by Renaldo Balestra, Italian couturier. That fox fur draped cowl stole is separate and completely removeable. The suit consists of a knee length jacket that can be worn on it's own as a coat and a full length skirt.

If you love Pucci era prints but prefer a more neutral palette, this vintage 70's dress by Paganne is just right for you!

Goldworm made some of the best prints around, and this 1970's evening gown is no exception. The stained glass mosiac print adorns a body hugging wool jersey dress and matching silk chiffon stole.

Velvet is going to be important for evening this fall. This vintage 50's cocktail dress features a beaded nude illusion bodice to add to the glamour!
