Vintage looks for PROM !

It's time to check into some vintage looks for spring proms. Why spend a fortune on a dress that you're going to see on someone else at your prom ? I have some wonderful glamorous yet wearable vintage gowns in stock. Not into floor-length styles ? The answer is SCISSORS !!! Dresses pictured are available at Southworth Antiques in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I can also ship anywhere.

Classic Ladies Stockings

THe graphic design of the period was just scrumptious. This box contains not one but three pairs of never-worn stockings individually wrapped in tissue. Even if you never plan to wear the stockings (I personally think stockings are totally evil !), the box is great to have in a collection of vintage accessories.

Bargello Clutch Purse

I love collecting handmade vintage accessories and last week I found the cutest bargello needlepoint clutch purse. It's all handstitched and is fully lined with a tricot knit fabric. The bold color palette of pink, burgundy, tan and blue makes quite a statement.
