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).

Fashion Files: The Goldworm Era

with 2 comments

As a collector of vintage Italian knitwear from the 1960s to 1970s, I can tell you that original Goldworm pieces are becoming more expensive and harder to find these days.

If you are unfamiliar with the label, it was founded in 1928 by Samuel and Gertrude Goldworm. The company partnered with clothing manufacturers in Italy during the knitwear boom in the 1960s and transformed itself into a purveyor of quality, wearable art. Identifiable by the iconic smiling gold worm on the label, original Goldworm pieces are highly collectible and would make a unique and timeless addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Below are some vintage Goldworm knits we found on eBay and etsy this week. Click on each image to see the listing.

Bohemian Wedding

leave a comment »

I’m coveting this vintage, fringed maxi dress I saw on eBay today. You could wear it to your own weird hippie wedding in the forest, as a Halloween costume, to a dinner party, lounging on the sofa, whatever. This dress will find a reason to be seen. Current bid $56. Auction ends 9/8. Click on the images below to see the full listing.
