Vintage Space Style

The elegant Jane Jetson.

This is actually the first picture I've seen of her wearing something other than her usual purple mini dress, so I had to post it.
Jane was basically a sweet housewife and mother who did absolutely nothing.
Their robot did all the housework, and dinner came from a vending machine.
So she was basically a lazy space wife.
She looks great though.

Love the sixties futuristic fashions.

Ebay Dress of the Day

Beautiful and unique, orange colored 1940's taffeta gown. What I wanna know is, unless you're hooked up to an old movie stars wardrobe collection, where do you find clothes like this? Even at expensive vintage stores and estate sales, I've never seen anything quite this glamorous.

Im back!

After not having a computer for 2 weeks, I can now post again.
So I'm gonna try and do a post overload the nest few days.
I'm starting off with a pic of this 1940's dress, because I found one almost identical at Value Village last week.
Yes, I said Value Village, it's true.
Never have I found anything this good there.
Now I probably won't find anything there for the next 2 years, but this was worth it.
The only difference is mine is more of an acetate fabric, where is this one looks satin-like.

Vintage Starlet of the Day

Carole Landis in 1940. It was almost impossible to choose a picture of her, as each one is more stunning than the next. Did you know Carole chose her screen name after her idol Carole Lombard? She looks like perfection, maybe that's why she was voted best dressed screen star in 1943.

Ebay Dress of the Day

1940's swing style dress. This is so simple yet so gorgeous. I actually just bought a vintage 40's dress this morning, and it's stunning. It's a miracle too, the waist was bigger than 24! Usually everything I find thats earlier than 1950's is so tiny. It's sheer though, so I can't post a picture till I get a nice slip to go under it:)

Vintage Style

Once again, I'm not usually into the vintage "style" or retro "style" in clothing.
Usually they're just cheap rip offs, trying to be trendy.

This dress however, I love.

It was on some vintage inspired fashion website, but you can tell all the dresses were very well made, and quite beautiful.
They're pricing was pretty crazy though, for non-vintage items.

Crazy but stunning.

Vintage Silver Shoes

As I was pouting over how people were outbidding me on Ebay (for all the vintage shoes I wanted)...I had a brilliant idea.
Why not just go down to one of the local vintage stores, and try and find some cute shoes?
I've been online so much I almost forgot that real stores existed!
So I found these silver beauties that fit me perfectly.
I wonder what year they're from...the girl at the shop said prob 1950's, but I had thought 1960's...
If Carol from Dandelion Vintage reads this, let me know what you think!

Ebay Dress of the Day

This is just beautiful. 1950's swing style dress. I love the light colors & ruffles, and check out the lace on the sleeves. Now just add some white gloves, and what kind of shoes? White heels? That might be perfect.
