This week we’re thrilled to show you this vintage 1950s to 1960s cocktail dress. This vixen boasts a waist-nipping fitted bodice embroidered with pastel metallic floral appliqués under the bust and a dramatic sheer mesh overlay that cascades into a unique bubble cape effect. This is an expensive vintage piece, but the seller is currently accepting offers. Anyway, can you really put a price on awesome? Click on the images below to see the actual listing.

Vintage Halston

“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.
