Congratulations goes to poster: Lisa for 1 point. Jack Lemmons is correct. But who is the lady?
Sorry Lisa, Joan ____???? is NOT correct! Hint: Joan is NOT even her first name!
So needless to say, there has been some talk around about the use of a vintage wedding dress, preferably the proper use of a vintage wedding dress. From the pictures above, without even reading the whole article one can see that partying anywhere in a 30's wedding gown is not the proper use.
Let's talk more of what is the proper use of a vintage wedding dress. I love stories of family traditions, legacy, heirlooms, etc. Charlotte Middleton recently tied the knot in a 100 year old wedding dress, that had been handed down to the SIXTH generation in her family. Take a look at the pictures, all the way from 1910.
One could only dream of finding a 40's suit this dramatic, in splendid condition. It is one thing to find one without a designer label, but ladies take note of this classy Lilli Ann. Form fitted with a shoulder/serape drape, and cuffs matching. Talk about sophisticated! All you need is the alligator heels and matching handbag.
Joan owner of Catbooks1940s states"Adolph Schuman, the man behind Lilli Ann, was a serious connoisseur of fine fabric. The suit itself is made of fine very dark blue wool, and the shoulder drape is undoubtedly from the fine French fabric mills in Normandy". This suit is being offered for only $425.00. Can you imagine if you were to walk into Saks Fifth Avenue today, to purchase something equivalent to this how much it would be? As always, tell Joan that Sydney sent you.
She will sell this dress to you for $280! What a steal! The dress even has a special order label, sounds couture to me.
From this same seller, Liz, also offers an Vintage Anne Fogarty 70's Poppy Sequin Dress.
Flattering cut on this dress from a designer of a Coty Award Winner!
Among the other treasures at Babylon Mall is this gorgeous Vintage Rhinestone Parure Costume Jewelry set. A big whopping $75 for the set!
Can't you just see this choker on your neck at the upcoming Christmas party? I can! Affection4Vintage offers this treasure, among other vintage goodies she offers for sale in her store. She absolutely loves to combine shipping with her Ebay auction items. In the last post, I talked about flying under the radar, oh momma!, take a look at this Pink 40's Peplum Dress. Buy it now for $45.00! Now that is under the radar, (but hopefully not for long when you snag it up).
Sorry but since I am a part of the dealers that make up Babylon Mall, I have to toot my own horn! I offer SOME of my boutique quality items in my Sydney's Vintage Clothing Boutique store. But most of my inventory is in my main store. (Sydneys Vintage Clothing).
There are other great sellers at Babylon Mall, I have only told you of a few. So check them all out. And tell Deb the owner that Sydney sent you.
Cool video, and I ask myself, how in the world do they train these guys and (gals) to fly so low? Awesome! If you dare, you can fly under the radar this evening, with a bid on this amazing vintage 40's Lilli Ann Suit. The bid is ONLY at $58.70 with 14 hours + to go. With this one being red toned, if it were late November, early December and you were getting ready for that Christmas event, there is no telling where the bid would be! So ladies, look ahead at the calendar of events, and get that bid in. You don't have much time. And besides, the boss won't mind even if you wear this one to the office either, classy and sophisticated!
After you purchase from Ivy Company. Be sure and tell her Sydney sent you.
P.S. She combines shipping! Check out her jewelry.
