Shop Preview: Sweetest Blues

On Monday, I shared a little bit about our daytrip to Leesburg, VA.  I mentioned I'd found a couple things for the shop, and that Q got a little early birthday present for me.   These are truly 3 of the most beautiful vintage dresses I've ever had in my possession (but you may soon have one in YOUR possession, once they're in the shop!) Without further ado:


1940s Rayon Floral Button Down Dress w/  Pockets + Velvet Ribbon at Collar, Size Large (12/14)
1950s Waitress/Stewardess Wiggle Dress with Navy Trim and Large Buttons,
 Size on tag 16 (fits like modern 10)

 The waitress dress has its original tags...it's never been worn!

And my 1940s birthday beauty...polka dots and eyelet sleeves + a belt.  

Because we live in such a transient area, it's really difficult to find vintage pre-1960s.  I always feel so lucky when I do. And this sucks since the 40s and 50s are my favorite decades for fashion.  I didn't pay thrift store prices for these dresses, but I was pleased with how reasonable they were, and I may start hunting antique shops more often...

xo,
Amanda

    1. Thanks so much! I so badly wanted the waitress dress to fit me, but it was a little snug in those narrow 50s hips!! ;)
