New arrival

I just love this cornflower blue linen vintage late 40s to early 50s dress I have just listed for sale on vintageclothing.com.au
I can see this one at the Spring Racing Carnival with just the right hat, probably in the same lovely shade of blue. Short white gloves would just finish it off. Hope someone thinks the same as I love the idea of these unique dresses from the past being resurrected for a new life.

Almost Melbourne Cup time

With the Melbourne Cup so near I thought I would share this beguiling photo I stumbled across by Frank Horvat taken at Longchamp racetrack in 1958. The model is wearing a stunning hat by Givenchy. Don't the men look elegant too.

Vintage lace beauty

Sorry, due to illness I haven't been blogging but hopefully am back on track now.

I wanted to share this divine vintage 50s salmon lace dress by Ferman O-Grady with you which I have just listed on my site vintageclothing.com.au
So, so elegant. Perfect for a Spring wedding or the upcoming racing carnival. These wonderful vintage dresses inspire me so much.

Lovely Louise over at digsfrocksandbooks.blogspot.com has a great giveaway of a wonderful book on Horrockses fashion. Better be quick as it goes off tomorrow.
