Sunday Steals: 1960s Cocktail Dress

Another Etsy jobby today. Sorry I’m not more original, but I promise I’ll start looking now for next Sunday’s bargain!

This cute dress is listed as 1950s. It looks too short to be 50s for me, so I would hazard that it is actually 1960s. I may be wrong though!

Regardless, this is a cutie of a dress. Made of gorgeous cream satin, adorned with little flowers this makes the perfect outfit for a mellow spring wedding.

With a tailored fit and emphasised waist, this will look great on a curvy figure. Which is wonderful news because the dress has measurements of 36-28-40.

Of course, it’s in our Sunday Steals which means is must be a bargain, right? Oh yes! At $69 including postage from the States, it works out at a fantastic £44. Ooh lovely!

From seller Jessamity, it is available here.

Sunday Steals! 70s Boho Chic

Hello there, and happy Sunday!

Let’s be honest, no one fancies slaving away on a Sunday. So every week I’ll hunt down a vintage bargain for you guys to look at. Some will be high street repro, some will be one-offs so best be quick!

This week, I’m loving this adorable 1970s prairie dress with seller Mrldahos Vintage on Etsy.

With a cute high neckline and ruffles all over, you couldn’t get more 70s if you wore rollerskates whilst blasting out Jackson 5. It would look amazing with a white floppy brimmed hat and simple sandals. Very Bianca Jagger!

The best bit? It’s $29 including postage- a mere £18!
