Tsk tsk. Slap my wrist. I’m pretty slack about putting website listings here on the blog, and I can only apologise. Here are some edited highlights (but there are plenty more already listed and more to come before Christmas!). Personal favourites are the original 1970s Chelsea Girl platform shoes, the black lace 1930s evening dress and Erte-printed John Bates for Jean Varon dress…
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…
Well, as promised I was determined to get some new listings up on the website. All week has been the gloomiest week I’ve ever known, perhaps to fit in with people’s general mood, but a rare showing of the sun on Friday afternoon meant I was able to do a handful of new listings. And, well, more than a handful is a waste, right? 😉
I think they’re three beauties personally, and sure to cheer anyone up even on the gloomiest of days. Sometimes I think fabric feeds the soul, certainly if you’re a vintage nut it does! A vividly printed velour mini dress by Young Edwardian to lift the spirits and the hemlines, a superb black jersey Jean Muir with a Miss Peelpants favourite – Pierrot ruffle collar! and finally a black chiffon John Bates for Jean Varon dress with billowing sleeves and the sweet name of ‘Juniper’. Perfect for anyone called Jennifer, but perfect for anyone else as well! I do hope you enjoy them, and hope they can find gorgeous new owners very soon!
