“I’m the young man standing in front of the sunset looking as if butter wouldn’t melt in my mouth. I was caught red-handed mooning around the two girls in the picture, and they asked me to write this ad. They want me to tell you that the clothes they are wearing are designed by Frank Usher, and made in Courtelle Voile. Apparently that is a light, flowing fabric in 100% Courtelle, and is as easy to wash as throwing into a washing machine. I believe them, after all, who’s going to argue with such good looking girls”.
Can any men out there confirm if this is, indeed, true? I had no idea you all thought about synthetic fabrics so much to be honest…
There are new listings-a-plenty over at Vintage-a-Peel, with some of the biggest and brightest names in British fashion from the Sixties and Seventies. Ossie Clark, Bill Gibb, John Bates, Jeff Banks, Twiggy, Gina Fratini, Jean Muir, Catherine Buckley… plus some beautiful modernist jewellery to go with it!
Ongoing, as ever, but I’ve put up some new listings over at Vintage-a-Peel for your delectation. Two things have already sold (hurrah for me and my gorgeous buyers, not so hurrah if you wanted them, but there’s plenty more to come!) but there’s just a whole host of beautiful new pieces to choose from.
Because I don’t want any of you to miss out, I would just like to point out a few gems I have over on eBay at the moment. There’s John Bates, Janice Wainwright, Frank Usher, Mr Freedom, Horrockses, Miss Mouse….and those are only the labelled pieces. There are also some gorgeous little gems without designer attribution but with a whole lot of style and appeal. Please do go check them out, while I carry on with some new website listings….oh yeah, much MUCH more to come!! Keep ’em peeled….
I have been very, very lax lately. My apologies! But I have just listed seven new superb pieces over at Vintage-a-Peel. There are more to come, and even some new eBay listings. Because I’m a glutton for punishment! Anyway, I know it’s sweltering out there (in London at any rate) but if you’re going to swelter…at least swelter in a scorching hot Radley dress:
Or perhaps you would like the loose, cool comfort of a Jean Muir jumpsuit?
There’s always the delicious sorbet shaded Frank Usher goddess dress to party in…
Or if you want to feel the cool breeze on your shoulders and through the transparent lace panels onto your waist and cleavage, there’s always this gorgeous satin and crepe Young Innocent dress:
If you’re planning on dancing around to Duran Duran this summer (I know I am) then look no further than this swishy prom dress by Bellville Sassoon:
To break up the black, and show some sass, here’s an incredible dress by Roland Klein with a wrap effect, plunging neck and back and an iconic single pink sleeve:
and lastly, but by no means leastly, unfortunately too tiny for Roxy [isn’t she doing well in her debut Vintage-a-Peel photoshoot?] is this museum quality Thea Porter ensemble of cropped top and tiered skirt. Luxe bohemian at its finest…there are even tiny twinkly gold stars on the floaty chiffon sleeves…
