These particular creations, strange as they are, actually herald from the 70s not the latest couture creation.
Look kind of like the end of a violin, don't they?
And they cut quite a profile.
I found these killer shoes at SenseoFashion. Created by Amano in the late 60s or early 70s, these leather shoes show some wear, but are absolutely in wearable condition. Sized 9.5, you can imagine what I'd give to shrink them just a tad! Offered by DorotheasCloset for $250.00, a steal for shoes with this much style.
Also from SenseoFashion is this incredible, curve hugging, electric blue, lamb suede dress from the 1980s.
A color one of my friends used to call "zapper blue"' this luscious body hugging dress was made by Firenze and is shired along the back to emphasize each curve.
The dress measures 36" 24" 36" and is 47" long. I'm especially pleased by the length of the dress, as I believe rather long dresses can create this long, lean, almost column-like appearance.
Offered by Daisy Fairbanks M 'a for $125.00.
My final find of the day from SenseoFashion is this One of a Kind Couture creation by Katharine Hamnett of London from the 1980s.
Though labeled a size L, the stretch of the fabric is such that it will fit anyone from a size 2 to a size 8. I shudder to think of a world in which a size 8 is a "large"' but I'll set that aside to focus on the timeless beauty of this dress. Made from a silk, cotton blend, the style of the dress owes an obvious debt to the undergarments of the Edwardian era. The fact that this is a dress and not a slip only adds to the sexiness of the slip-dress.
The semi-fish tale hemline adds to the timeless quality of the dress, and the adjustable shoulder straps enhances the dresses ability to fit a variety of sizes.
Offered by TheKaliman for $300.00.
And on that note, I shall wish you all Good Shopping!
