Hey y’all – how’s things? While I knew my blogging would slow down during my busy work season, I didn’t intend for it to stop! I’m glad to be back and to be re-immersing myself in the world of vintage beyond the dresses I throw on to run errands. Between work and Mardi Gras, I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off most of the time.
I have heard feedback that these Etsy posts are useful to people, both in terms of figuring out what to search for and in finding pieces to add to people’s vintage collections! It seems only fitting to start back up with one (also, because it’s pouring rain here and there’s no way I’m taking photos until the weekend).
I’m intending to try some themed Etsy roundups in the future, but today’s post is another grab bag with the theme “stuff I like”. If there are any requests for themes, leave them in the comments please!
Factory Worker Dress from Edgetor:
While this isn’t really a day dress, I always love these pieces of fashion history and wish I had the space to collect them. This is a great example that belongs in some history lover’s collection.
Blue Hat Silk Club Dress by MsTips:
This is a fabulous dress for those of you who don’t like your prints to smack people in the face from 10 feet away. It’s wearable, subtle but still pretty and recognizably vintage. Also, silk.
1940’s Day Dress from TrunkofDresses:
Any regular vintage wearer will soon discover a need for cheerful and fun cotton day dresses. They’re comfortable, fun and can take a beating if you treat them right. I also think this shade of pink is really cute.
1940’s Gold Cocktail Dress from langvintage:
My dress up excuses are over now that Mardi Gras has ended, but surely one of you still has a reason to pick up this amazing gold dress? This is a fabulous “look at me” cocktail dress.
1940’s LBD from ConcettasCloset:
This is another classic piece that any vintage lover will get a ton of use out of. I have a Trashy Diva dress that is really similar to this one, which is the only reason I’m not tempted by it. They’re perfect for work, dinner dates and even funerals in a pinch.
Polka Dot 1930’s Dress by Jumblelaya:
Another cheerful day dress that is destined to be someone’s wardrobe staple.
1930’s Silk Cream Dress from VeryVintageStore:
I purchased my favorite jacket from this store, so I can vouch for both their quality and their shipping. This dress proves that basics can still be beautiful when done impeccably and with style.
1950’s Dragon Novelty Print Dress from daisyandstella:
I am obviously someone who likes their prints as novelty as they come, so it is a given that I am featuring this amazing dragon print dress this week. Dragons!
1950’s Cotton Day Dress from SwellFarewell:
SwellFarewell still has a ton of great plus size pieces, so it’s worth checking out their entire store currently. The colors in this dress really grabbed me though.
Which dress is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
