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.

Three Plus One

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).
