Vintage Summer Style

A selection of vintage pieces to inspire this summer...perfect for a garden party, picnic dates and weekend getaways...Enjoy! Vintage 1980's Judy Hornby Couture- pale smokey grey chiffon with a mixed metallic lame floral pattern...such beautiful lightweight material, great when worn someplace breezy to get that full-on fluttery, shimmery effect.
Vintage 1970's Albert Capraro cotton gown- folksy at its finest! Love the vivid, fresh floral set against crisp black and white with lace print details...garden party darling!

Vintage 1980's Dominic Rompollo silk dress- peasant girl chic in a vivacious shade of emerald green with dainty floral sprays woven into the fabric. This flows beautifully and can be shortened if desired.

Vintage 1960's Sabina of India silk gown- the print is amazing on this all silk creation in an offbeat color combination that really makes a statement. Constructed with the expertly detailed
craftsmanship that you can only find in vintage and today's high dollar designer pieces.

Vintage 1970's Malcolm Starr mini dress- so simple and so, so chic! The perfect LBD for summer can be accessorized a million different ways and seriously, will this silhouette ever go out of style? I think not.

Vintage 1970's halter gown- a hot weather fave, sleek and sexy with a little rock 'n' roll/Elvis flavor thrown in from the denim-esque material and silver studded embellishments.

Vintage 1970's Young Edwardians sundress- hard to find black sundress gets a touch of prairie girl sweetness from icy blue satin ribbon trim and sheer floral ruffles. Go casual with cowboy boots or vamp it up in strappy sky-high platforms.

Vintage 1960's Shaheen sundress- light and sweet (without being overly juvenile), in a flattering coral polished cotton with paisley print in dark gold and white. Isn't this just summertime defined in a dress?

Vintage 1970's Carole Little for Saint-Tropez West silk dress- another frock that flows and flutters so beautifully due the lightweight 100% silk material, spectacular floral print both dainty and bold at the hem. The bodice is a dream with its perfect puff sleeves and drawstring neckline.
