As always, buyer beware! Not everything that says it's vintage is vintage. (This week I found a chemise which claimed to be from the 20's. The seller was silly enough to show a picture of the label which featured the word "Washable". As there were no washing machines in the 1920's, one is given to wonder...) And - as always - how much is that worth? It's worth precisely how much you are willing to pay for it.
This lovely 50's cocktail dress with the exagerated bow ("which makes you look like a present" - Mad Men) is available at eBay for a Buy It Now price of $199.00. The seller is accepting offers.
This very 60's Pop Art dress was found at Fashion Digs, and is a steal at $ 48.00.
This gorgeous gold metallic shawl is available at eBay for a current bid of $152.00, though the reserve has not been met. Dating from the 20's, the embroidery on this garmet has been meticulously preserved, and I was unable to detect even any loose threads. Now why couldn't January Jones have worn this to the Emmys?
Found at 1860 - 1960, this 20's red paisley cocoon coat makes me long for a winter day. $250.00
This fantastic 50's formal gown was found at Etsy for $178.00.
Though obviously NOT vintage, these Jimmy Choo shoes were too much of a find to leave out. Available on eBay for a mere $ 149.00.
