More Customer Inspiration!

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, " strangers struck up conversations telling me how beautiful my outfit is and those who didn't comment smiled brightly."

Tobi sent me these pics after wearing this 1960s cocktail dress she purchased from Couture Allure to a wedding last weekend.  Tobi said she got SO many compliments.  Well, of course, Tobi.  You look beautiful!  There's Tobi with her husband above, and a full length shot below. 

Thank you to everyone who sends pictures!  We all love to see real women wearing real vintage and you're an inspiration to the rest of us!
