NEW IN THE RED LIGHT VINTAGE ETSY SHOP: LEATHER AND LACE (AND VELVET!)

Pray to our goddess Stevie while breathing in all this leather and lace. Endure my velvet fetish while enjoying the third (equally beautiful) dress new to the Red Light Vintage Etsy Shop. Delicious Dress Decadence!

LEATHER!
G-III Leather Dress with Shoulder Buckles and Zippers and Hip Zippers Size Medium (1980s) – $58.00
I grew up in the mid-west where hair metal RULED HARD and every single woman I wanted to grow up and be owned a dress similar to this. It’s so bold, so frisky, so vintage freakum-dress. And unique! The dress itself is such a conversation piece, when it’s wrapped around a body there’s even more to say. I adore it!

LACE!
Vintage Mod Brown Lace Mini Dress Size 14 (1960s) – $34.00
There’s something about brown lace that makes me swoon hard. I love that this dress has vertical lace on the bodice and horizontal on the skirt. The dress is darling, but also very sexy. Everyone should own a really great mini dress and all closets should be full of lace!

MORE LACE!
Vintage White Lace Wiggle Dress With Cape and Pink Ribbon Detail Size Small (1960s) – $62.00
Yes this is a lace dress with a capelet and pink satin ribbon. YES I AM FREAKING OUT!

VELVET!
A. Chalita Vintage Green Crushed Velvet Dress Size Small (1960s style from 1990s) – $36.00
Looking at this dress I get dreamy for two things: My crushed velvet babydoll dress that I wore to homecoming 1995. And Olivia Hussey as Juliet in the 1968 adaptation of Romeo & Juliet. Both memories swoon me and so does this dress! It’s such a perfect dolly dress. I adore it. I think it would make a gorgeous prom gown, but maybe that’s just 1995 me talking. Though 1995 me was very wise. Listen to her!

NEW IN THE RED LIGHT VINTAGE ETSY SHOP: THE 90S YOU GUYS!

I fall into a bit of a romantic nostalgia dream here with these two perfectly delightful plus size 90s blouses!

The Limited Vintage Heart Print Button Down Silk Blouse Size Large (1990s) – $24.00
Oh man, I freaking loved The Limited when I was a kid! It was the cool version of Lerner, the junior sized version of Lane Bryant. It was magical! Silk tops were all the rage in the early-mid 90s and usually I could only afford rayon shirts, but oh boy, when a silk top from The Limited came into my life, I would celebrate! This top is in such perfect shape and so utterly fantastic! Too darling!

Diane Gilman Vintage Navy and Leopard Print Silk Button Down Blouse with Sequinned Snow Leopard Size Large (1990s) – $32.00
Is there anything better than a bedazzled cat sprawled across your chest? NO. THERE IS NOT. BUY THIS BLOUSE.

NEW IN THE RED LIGHT VINTAGE ETSY SHOP: DIOR AND MISSONI PERFECTION

EDIT: The Dior is sold! The Missoni is still looking for a home!

Vintage designer label items give me LIFE, and these both fit me, so I was able to shimmy into them and swoon before preparing them for their forever homes. Details of these two special treats below!

Christian Dior Loungewear Vintage Floral Print Dressing Gown Size Small/Medium (1960s) – $60.00
Weeping at the beauty of this gown! It makes me want to completely redesign my apartment into a 1960s/1970s opium den and just smoke cigarettes attached to ivory cigarette holders and work on my cat eye and drink cocktails and never leave the house! This gown would flatter both a slim or a curvy bod because it is made of magic!

Missoni Geometric Print Plus Size Dress with Asymmetrical Hem (1980s) – $64.00
It’s like the spirit of the 80s gathered together and moved into this dress! The hem! The sleeves! The print! It’s perfect! And plus size too so a curvalicious beauty can shimmy her curves into this chic and comfy cotton dress. This dress is literally too hip to be square!

NEW IN THE RED LIGHT VINTAGE ETSY SHOP: Anna Sui; Diane Von Furstenberg; Oscar de la Renta

EDIT: The Anna Sui found a home! The Diane Von Furstenberg and Oscar de la Renta are still available!

Bo-notes on these very important pieces new to the Red Light Vintage Etsy Shop:

Anna Sui: Excuse me while I weep at the beauty that was fashion in my teen years. This dress looks brand new and feels amazing! It can be styled in so many scrumptious ways – as an homage to yummy grunge fashion or with a modern twist. You choose! Either way, you and this dress will be very best friends! A good sun dress is a treat and this dress is truly decadent.

Diane Von Furstenberg: This gown is so 70s disco meets 80s Dynasty that I could WEEP! Rhinestones are my LIFE!

Oscar de la Renta: Yes this dress looks like it was tailor-made for a Christmas event, but you know what I say? Velvet is for every season! I’ll wear this dress in July, I don’t care! GOTH 4 LIFE!
