a beach cover up this summer. Just pair this with some cute espadrilles or salt water sandals and voila, a fun beach look.

Another Mad Men dress from my collection


  Here's a dress I found in my collection that looks so similar to the Jane Sterling character . It's a sheath dress with a boat neckline, bloused bodice, elastic waist and narrow sash belt. The closure has a back metal zipper, and the dress is unlined very 60s. This one is sleeveless whereas Jane's character is short sleeved. I also noticed that the color block patches coordinate except for one that is a dark brown. This dress is by Diane Young  , a label from the 50s and 60s that manufactured shirts , blouses, and ladies dresses.



Shirtwaist Classic Fashioned by Diane Young.

 It measures 40 around the bust, the waist is 26" to 30" and the length is 42". Hand wash.

 Size Small/Medium.

Red 60s Dress-perfect splash of color for this winter....

 Here's a 1960s scarlet red jacquard floral print dress. It has a full pleated skirt bottom, sleeveless bodice, and a back hidden nylon zipper. It does not have a label nor washing instruction.The inner zipper has a a stamp on it with "do not iron", but that's all I can go by.  It is made very well. I paired it up with a vintage sweater and added my trusty belt, looks great.

Please note this dress is not Made In China.( I am getting so sick to death of cheap, imitation vintage inspired dresses that keep popping up everywhere, we are being saturated with cheap clothes, please buy local, resale, vintage, or consignment when you can, save this beautiful EARTH )  Sorry , now off my soapbox.

Here's the measurements:
                         bust 34-36        
                         waist 28
                         hips full
                         length 38 
                         rib-cage 30 small

Now in shop 50s Lilli Ann Cocoon Coat L


Here's a wool cocoon coat by Lilli Ann Paris California. It is from the late 50s, fully lined, accented with curly Persian lamb ( not too sure if it's real) and has a sweet front bow. It is a large size, but can be cinched at the waist with a vintage belt, to give it a more fitted look.  The Princess coats that I've seen on the web are so expensive, this is all you have to do to achieve that 50s new look or  princess coat look is add a large belt.  The waist appear smaller too, cool tip from the 50s.
