Vintage Halston

leave a comment »

I once wrote that “vintage Halston” may be my most favorite combination of words ever. If you don’t believe me then check this out. Now don’t you feel silly for doubting my veracity? Well, I’m in a very forgiving mood today so I won’t let this temporary lapse of judgment mar my opinion of you. Back to this week’s look, below is an impeccable example of vintage Halston, a flawless, draped, one-shoulder goddess dress from the 1970s. Currently for sale on eBay and the seller is accepting offers. Click on the images below to see the actual listing.

This week we found a wonderful seller on etsy, Lil & Gaines, who makes the most beautiful pillow covers. The pillow cover below, fashioned from a Robert Allen Khanjali designed ikat fabric, is currently gracing my new sectional and I’m so pleased with the quality that I plan to order another.

A Curated Collection of Vintage Turbans

with one comment

Modern men and women are privileged to have access to an infinite variety of hair products to manipulate sad tresses into any imaginable shape. But our brave predecessors had far fewer options. Back then, a bad hair day could ruin your week. Back then, fashion was the only cure for deadly hair. Hats, snoods, beanies, scarves, buckets (in a pinch), and yes…turbans.

We have for you this week an expertly curated collection of sensational vintage turbans, all available right now from various sellers on eBay and etsy. Click on each image below to see the actual listing.

And if you’re thinking, “there’s no way I could ever pull off a vintage turban!” you’re most likely correct. Only those who fully appreciate the exalted turban deserve to wear one. So march on, sister. March on.

Vintage Halston

with one comment

“Vintage Halston” may be my most favorite combination of words ever. In fact, if I were into role playing it would probably be my safe word. This week we found this rare 1970s Halston aubergine wool and silk caped gown from the label’s 1976 collection. Offered by jayparkinson on etsy. Click on the image below to see the listing.

Three Plus One

leave a comment »

It can be challenging to find great vintage pieces to fit every shape, which makes the three dresses below even more special. The first one is a 1970s-era silk brocade frock from Geoffrey Beene‘s Boutique label so you know it’s expertly crafted. The shirtwaist bodice and a-line skirt would be flattering on just about any body shape and the extra-long ascot can be tied in numerous ways. And check out those amazing rhinestone studded buttons! Such great details here, which is to be expected from this vintage boutique label (41″ bust, 34″ waist).

And below the Geoffrey Beene is a vintage 1960s butterscotch and black plaid jersey dress with neck tie (42″ bust, 36″ waist, 41″ hips).

Finally, we have an adorable powder blue mod day dress with a square neckline and decorative buttons (38″ bust, 34″ waist, 40″ hips).
