A few 50s dresses....
From the 60s, page 2....
Today, a few fantastic 40s day dresses in cool green prints, done in a crisp cotton...perfect for summer!
And a fun late 40s sundress with purple rose print, velvet bows and rhinestones!
Watch for casual 50s dress, 60s dresses, 70s dresses and lingerie to be added to the $50 event over the next few weeks! Join our NEWSLETTER LIST to get an email (maybe 2, if I'm ambitious) a week with updates on new items, news, sales and more from the website.
But it was, and I can't quite say looking at our good friend and Motley Crue alumni, Vince Neil, that I am not strangely attracted to his edgy-yet-slightly-feminine look. I don't know, somehow it was tough back then to look like a poorly made up drag queen in a horror film.
Today, Vince is an everyman....an everyman who is the guy at the bar you kinda dig but aren't sure about. You heart the past but know that guy is bad news. Things change. Aqua Net wanes in popularity, made up men make up a different part of our entertainment world than they did in the 80s. He seems swell, but its hard to imagine sharing your eyeliner.....
Hey, Vince....I was a pretty crazy super-metal-broad back then and equally as not-remotely-metal now ....we can hang! Call me.
The McCardell, as photographed by me a while back (before a crisp paper background...I cringe looking at this picture!)
And last night on Tracey, with ZAC POSEN (lightened so you can see that marvelous waist treatment, iconic McCardell)...
She looks fantastic! A big thank you to Tracey for the honor and for mentioning me on stage (closest I'll get to a black tie event in New York City in my lifetime)....
Thats a tough car. Hope I'm up to it!
Yes, that is Madonna. And yes, Meisel is THE Meisel that did her SEX BOOK
So hats went, came back today in a pretty keen box...
and then an email saying 2 hats were used (still have to make editing...so we wait...and wait...and hope...) AND an email asking for more hats for an upcoming shoot for the Sept. issue and a shoot with TIM WALKER!
Yeah. Wow. And also wow. Some Walker work...
So its *likely* some hats available on my site will actually be seen in Vogue! And if so....well, wow and right on. And all achieved by mere years of good old fashioned arse-busting, elbow-grease and prayer to random deities! Pretty cool for vintage to get the modern fashion spotlight, right? Yes. So get yourself a Dorothea's Hat!
A shout out and linky magic to Lisa at MY VINTAGE OBSESSION for the love she showed my site the other day (and her blog is wonderful!).
Sandra at DEBUTANTE CLOTHING did a write up about my exciting news wherein I happily supplied a CLAIRE MCCARDELL dress to TRACEY ULLMAN who is a) a sweetheart and b) wearing it to host the the upcoming CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards coming up June 15th.
Christie, a new friend aquired via having kids in the same kindergarten class and fellow etsy seller, posted a bit about my shop and buying for summer weddings at her blog GUSSIED UP!
One of my BFFs, Kim at FAST EDDIE'S RETRO RAGS returned the nod I gave her the other night by blogging something aqua of mine in a colour themed post....thanks Kim!
I may have some exciting news shortly involving Vogue Magazine, so watch this space or sign up for my NEWSLETTER for updates on that....
Lastly, doing markdowns on my things at SCARLETBIRDVINTAGE, as well as adding new hats to SUGARLIDS and have opened a shop featuring vintage bridal wear on etsy called WHITE WEDDING (love me some Billy Idol!).
That sums it up!
Found on etsy at SUGARLIDS!
But my shining light in the fog is my friend Kim, who blogs as FAST EDDIES RETRO RAGS. She has her own plate full and still manages to do it right and be funny AND witty doing so.
Hat tip, Kim!
PS, I did shoot some good stuff recently, some of which is on my newly created shop on etsy for vintage bridal...WHITE WEDDING. And this awesome 40s beach hat will be on the site tomorrow (if my damn laptop cooperates)....
