Treasure Dress

a

It's a good rule of thumb that drooling over pretty vintage clothes that are used in editorial shots is a no win situation. Being vintage, the clothes are pretty much one of a kind and will never end up in your possession. When I first spotted that sheer navy dress with those amazing sleeves and collar, my mind went into overdrive trying to figure out how I could hunt it down.

Well, turns out it was a lot easier than I thought! I discovered that it is for sale (and still is as I write this!) on Treasure Dress , a new vintage dress boutique operating out of the UK. The selection of dresses is really stunning. I'm in love with this one and this one.

wow, these ARE gorgeous; however, I'm pretty certain that black one with ecru collars is not 50s/60s (the gored skirt, etc make me think 30s-40s). Also, the prices! OUCH! Still, the images they've got here of the gals in these frocks = divine!
