Party Girl

I sense a dark cloud creeping in the distance. You feel it too, I know. That foreboding sense of doom is the end of summer, and thus, the beginning of the holiday party season.

So you’re going to need a new evening gown. Don’t even think about wearing that one from last year. It’s tired and you know it. Be adventurous. Wear some freaking color you Quaker; it’s winter not a funeral. Or if you do go with black, make sure there are interesting details like lace or beading. Don’t make the accessories do all the work. And have some fun, man. It’s just a dress.

Here are some choice cocktail/evening gowns we found on etsy and eBay this week. Click on each image to see the full listing. Cheers.

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.
