LATEST FIND! TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S HOUSECOAT – MOD AND SWEET

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nothing “Lady of the Manor” about this dressing gown – a little bit more Carnaby Street.  Still a perfect hostess gown or leisure wear garment.

Lovely, heavy nylon with cute button trim at the neckline and the Sixties bell sleeves.  I love the print and the colors in this gown!

It’s always such fun to find beautiful clothing that is 50 years old but still in perfect wearing condition.  I breeze around the house in this one a lot!!

LOVE RED – ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S BAKELITE . . . . . . . .

Can’t say for positive-positive, but I have my suspicions.  Absolute confirmation can require a chemist’s lab but, anyway, what a cute little bangle bracelet this will be for summer – or any time.

Love the shape.  Love the color.  Love the mystery.  What could be better?

THREE PIECES OF TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S COSTUME JEWELRY

THREE PIECES OF TRUE VINTAGE 1960'S COSTUME JEWELRY

I’ll be showing highlights of my vintage jewelry collection, along with the shoes and dresses.  Here are three pieces which were very characteristic of the Sixties decade.

Enameled pins were very popular – especially in flower shapes. Also, large pendants that hung to the chest were a big thing.

The pin is not marked, nor is the middle pendant but I think that the chain which came with it said it was by Trifari.  The gold-color pendant with chain is by Sarah Coventry. Modernistic shapes were really popular.

Any one of these really sparks up an outfit and gives it a mod, mid-sixties flair.

THE FABULOUS BLACK & WHITE MID-CENTURY MOD DAY DRESS – STELLA MODELS

IMG_1699Here’s the neatest view of that great Caron Chicago frock I recently found.  With a black back-drop it creates wonderful negative space.  I’m so impressed by the ingenuity of the designer.

Stella and Madge make everything look better – you just can’t do this frock justice when it’s on a hanger.  This is one of the best-looking 1960’s op-art pieces I’ve ever seen – so unusual and unique.

I’m home from my weekend away, with 9 more true vintage finds to share with you!

CUTE CUSTOM-TAILORED DAY DRESS WITH MATCHING SCARF – TRUE VINTAGE FOR FALL

CUTE CUSTOM-TAILORED DAY DRESS WITH MATCHING SCARF – TRUE VINTAGE FOR FALL

IMG_1671 IMG_1665This frock is another of Rosalie’s creations.  A simple design made interesting with inverted pleats on the bodice and skirt. She was such an exceptional tailor! The fabric is a textured type that was very popular in the mid to late ’60’s which resembles burlap or “hop sacking”.  A perfect color for autumn.

I have added the chain belt, though the dress falls nicely without it.  The scarf is another addition – also Rosalie’s, but it was commercially made.  Since the colors blend so nicely and both are from the mid-sixties Mod era, they are really good together.

So, here’s an everyday outfit from 50 years ago that’s so easy to wear and has a different “twist” that makes it absolutely unique today!  Even though it’s not pop-your-eyes-out vintage, people will see it and say “hmmmmm. . . . . . . . . . . . . .?”

A FUN POLISHED COTTON PSYCHEDELIC PRINT TUNIC AND PANTS FROM THE LATE 1960'S

This cute lounging outfit (or hostess set for your patio party) was made by Dash About. There is an embroidered tag inside.

When I found this, I thought it was made in Hawaii because of the fabric, but probably not. It’s just a lovely polished cotton printed in brilliant colors.

The top could even be worn as a mini-dress. I can see Cher in something like this. I just love the print and the peacock hues.

Metal zipper up the back. The pants have an elastic waist, so it’s nothing high-end. But really cute and versatile. You won’t see anything like this around the next corner!

TRUE VINTAGE MOD HOSTESS JUMPSUIT FROM THE 1960’S – PATIO PARTY!!

TRUE VINTAGE HOSTESS JUMPSUIT FROM THE '60'S - PATIO PARTY!!

Now that it’s so hot again, feels like outdoor party time. This op art/flower power print is pure ’60’s and the style is late ’60’s to early ’70’s. I love the way jumpsuits look, but they’re not very convenient – like those culottes!

Anyway, this outfit is so cute I’ll wear it no matter what. It was commercially made – has a label – but nothing I recognize. The back zips up, so that helps make it easier to wear.

Some high red sandals and I’m off to the races – or the BBQ – or just on the town being seen. No incognito jobs in this get-up!
