Carmen & Ginger on Etsy very soon! Keep reading for some choice previews and gloating...
Bringing Up Baby?" Tiny little silver sequin clusters are stitched onto a fine black netting that completely covers a pink silk body to the dress. Holy cats!
While I was still reeling from my vintage clothing finds, my mom - uber-finder-of-great-stuff - stole this book right out from under my nose at a church sale! Ok, well, maybe I was at that part of the table first and walked right by it... Very hard to find, in fantastic condition and signed by the author, this book is a must have for the fashion historian. She will be selling this at some point soon, perhaps in her Etsy shop. (11.6.09 Update: Mom just listed this in her shop! Click the photos above or here to see the listing!)
Hmnnnn....looks like Carmen and Ginger may need to do a two-dress destash from her own closet to justify keeping these two vintage rayon crepe beauties! I do think they should be kept, don't you? (PS: I will release a 1950's Black Grace Kelly Style Dancing Dress and a 1930's Floral Crepe Bias Cut Day Dress - both mint! - this note is for blog watchers as well as C&G's husband...)
One last one...vintage late 1960's thick wool knit shirt-dress in vintage citrus green. Imagine walking into the office in this beauty! At C&G very soon!
