Adding more vintage dresses to my new website! Coming soon stay tuned.

I'm finally setting up my website, please stay tuned. Here are some of my lovelies that I will be selling soon, some are already in my Etsy Shop, and some I have at my vendor's stand. I plan to regroup and add my collection of dresses slowly, I have nearly 15 years worth of a collection, wow!!! I'm always buying more. I will not be trading on my website, only selling and buying vintage. Since branching out on my own website, I will be selling all eras, hooray! All these lovelies will be available for purchase soon. If interested in any of these garments, look for them on my Etsy shop for now and my new website or email me at cabbiekat@hotmail.com Thanks!

Alfred Angelo's Burlesque Style Dress

Up for offer is this fantastic Alfred Angelo's fun cocktail dress. Actually it would be a perfect performance dress for a singer or classic burlesque dancer. The dress of course would need to be altered, in order to perform a strip tease, but that's up to you. I will be listing this dress on my Etsy this week, so stay tuned. I found some great snap shots of classic burlesque performers from the 50s. Gotta love their fishtail dresses, similar to mine. Sorry about the color change, the dress is a dark blue not black. The sparkles are  not colorful , they are silver. The dress does have some of the sparkles missing, not bad when you're on stage. The last closeup shows the true color and what the sparkles look like up close, they are not beads or sequins. Measurements are 34 bust- waist-28 hips 36 - medium size dress, there's no stretch due to fabric. If you are interested in this dress just email me at cabbiekat@hotmail.com or check out the dress on my To Dress Vintage Etsy shop. Thanks!



Look at Rita Hayworth's dress from the 1952 movie" Affair in Trinidad" , what a knockout dress.
Have fun with vintage!

Bridgette Bardot and the pin ups from the late 50s and 60s come to mind, love these eras. Love everything from her collection!

SOLD!!!George Seurat A Sunday On The Island of La Grand Jatte1884–1885 Pointillism Print Vintage Top

 The coolest George Seurat print top. This top or shell is made from a heavy nylon not sheer. It has no label only washing instruction tag. I think it came with a skirt or jacket at one time???  I will be only selling it on my Ecrater shop and locally. Thanks for shopping my blog! I accept Pay Pal only.

 I love this print!

 Remember in Ferris Bueller's Day Off  1986 -when the character Cameron was staring at this art work, how sad he looked with the Smith's playing in the background.

Keely Smith Style and Music Icon...

I love her voice, she was married to the Louis Prima in the 50s. But I think she stole the show with that voice. Her hair style was so 20s flapper. I want to now cut my hair like hers. I'm so tired of long hair, getting too old for long hair.

 My favorite photos of them together and just of her...

Enjoy her beautiful voice.
