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.

Glittery Goddess Gown

leave a comment »

If you like that Badgley Mischka caftan I posted earlier this week, but frowned at the $495 price tag, perhaps you will be interested in this vintage 1970s batwing gown trimmed with sparkly sequins and draped like a goddess. Current bid on eBay is $9.99. Click on the image below to see the actual listing.
