LOVE THIS 1960’S PATIO HIPPIE DRESS I JUST FOUND!

IMG_3922

Heavy synthetic knit and great colors.  Again, fabulous graphics on this one with a metal zip up the back.  The lacing tie and empire waistline are fun style features, too.

I know, I get a little excessive with my enthusiastic descriptions sometimes but that’s how I feel when discovering great true vintage garments.  Keep on cleaning out your closets, grandma . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

FUN AND RARE FIND! MID-CENTURY MOD HAPPY DAYS KNIT TOP

IMG_3921

Not a really finely-made example, but a really rare one that I’ll have lots of fun with.  Just because of the similar color, I’ve paired it in this photo with a well-made 1980’s gored skirt in 1940’s style.

Whenever I feel like hanging out in jeans and penny loafers or saddle shoes on a fall day, I’ll reach for this top.  Great disguise . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

HERE’S A BETTER FIND – A 1950’S -’60’S SLINKY KNIT HOUSEDRESS IN A FABULOUS PRINT

IMG_3917

Love, love, love the graphics here!  Although this dress was never more than a lower-end bargain fashion, the style and construction testify to the superior quality and value of  garments made several decades ago.  I’ll enjoy wearing this one, but I’ll take special care of it, too.

The label is no longer legible, so I’m not sure of the exact fabric content or the brand name.  Also, the original belt is missing, which was probably a tie belt.  Like many of the knits back in the day, it has a really nice feel and hangs and drapes beautifully.  I like this shiny buckle belt now – dresses it up a bit.

Keep on watching, because it only gets better . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
