This gauzy blouse goes beautifully with this amazing ankle-length skirt
The skirt is a very good quality thick crepe with gorgeous metallic embroidery
This evening coat is stunning - it's covered in gold 'slubs' I soooo wish it fitted me (but as usual, all of these are TINY)
I remember my Mum wearing this dress when I was a little girl and I always wanted to wear it. It's gauzy so I assume she had a slip underneath it. The photos don't really show the true colours, but it's an amazing rich emerald & jade with a golden olive and gold thread...
I love how sweet this dress is, large patterned polka dots on a purple background, with broderie anglais around the neck, cuffs & hem and a velvet ribbon under the bust
This dress looks skin tight, with an overlay of daisy patterned 'lace' over the bust
I LOVE this silk/satin hot pink dress, it has the most beutiful detail along the neckline & bust & is such a pretty colour...
And this one - GORGEOUS!!!! It's one of the only short cocktail dresses, in silk/satin and is a fabulous jade-turquoise, LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT (again, wish it fit me)..
Hee, hee, this is a white lace trouser & tunic set, with nice big flares - not one of my favourite items, but very "of its time" and I'm sure it had its admirers back then
I used to love this dress & dreamed of wearing it too - it's rather witchy which I love. Black bodice style dress with chiffon bell sleeves (seen better in the 2nd pic) ...
Finally, this one is a more recent dress, from the 80's. It's a black silky skirted dress with a "tartan" check top - but the colours are gorgeous & are like shot-taffeta, with a bright jade tie
'Sigh', so lovely and I'm sure I'll decide what to do with them one day (re-purpose them, sell them, etc). Do you have any vintage clothing from your family? x
