How to Spend It

leave a comment »

This unexpected discovery is one of the reasons we love The Financial Times “How to Spend It” special issue. Designed for Marios Schwab‘s 2013 resort collection, this vintage-inspired swimsuit is made from terry cloth or “toweling” fabric with high-waist bottoms, sort of reminiscent of the 1950s, particularly when paired with the matching jacket cover-up (second photo below). For more retro beachwear looks, check out the rest of the Financial Times “How to Spend It” fashion section here.

Just in time for summer, this week we found a vintage 1940s, candy striped play suit with adorable bubble shorts and a top that can be worn strapless if you dare. Look at those cute side ties on the shorts. Click on the images below to see the seller’s eBay listing.

Vintage Christian Dior Prêt-à-Porter

with 2 comments

March is officially here and I’m sure you are all eager to shed your winter coats and start showing some skin. This week on eBay we were shopping for vintage sundresses and found this unbelievable 1970s Christian Dior numbered prêt-à-porter halter dress. The Dior prêt-à-porter label is between couture and boutique, which features many hand finished details but is made for domestic sizes rather than custom made for an individual. This stunning bright yellow and magenta maxi dress is actually a separate halter top and tiered skirt. Click on the images below to see the seller’s eBay listing (this set is pricey but they are accepting offers).

Diminutive Dresses

leave a comment »

My neighbor Bich Ngoc is a tiny Vietnamese woman. Not regular tiny. Like when she turns to the side, she disappears tiny. Shopping in the children’s section tiny. Anyway, you get it. She’s small. And because she is so miniscule, her fashion problems are often dismissed because small is viewed by most as an advantageous trait. Unfortunately for Bich Ngoc, few people (especially other women, rawr) have sympathy for her plight. That is, until now. Today, we are featuring a number of diminutive vintage dresses for women like Bich Ngoc, all in sizes extra small and smaller. And not just cute girly dresses, but sexy frocks to put a little sizzle on our lusciously lean ladies. Click on each image below to see the full listing.
