Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock Pink Prom Gown with Puff Sleeves and Tie Back Bow Appx Size Extra Small (1980s) – $98.00
This looks like a dress one of the Footloose dancers wore at the end of the movie when they finally got to legally dance! I’m going to legally dance in celebration of this wonder! There is literally nothing wrong with this dress, it is all things beautiful and gorgeous. My favourite favourite part of it though is the crinoline. I’m such a sucker for crinolines. This one is extra stiff and full and makes the dress lay so beautifully! Oh, perfect pink bow dress, how I love thee!

This is such a perfect gothic prom gown! Or wedding gown! Black is romantic! It could also be worn casually and that’s the sign of a flawless dress. It’s so well made, in such beautiful condition, and the lace and satin details slay me. Purple lace, you guys!

Emanuel Ungaro Vintage Leather Mini Dress Appx Size Small (1980s) – $540.00
I just researched this dress and ended up lost in an Ungaro wonderland! Like, I had to stop myself from looking at pictures of Ungaro’s Balenciaga designs, but then I started looking up pictures of Ungaro himself and then I kept looking back and forth between the dress and similar listings online and then I started CRYING. Designer items like this just move me, you guys. I’m swooning so hard for this elegant, sassy vixen. The cut is perfectly 80s and the leather is sumptuous. It’s so decidedly Ungaro too. It’s a real treasure. And I’m selling it for a deal because I very much want this lady to have a home.

Coach Vintage Leather Briefcase (1980s) – $100.00
Oh man, I love a good soft buttery leather, and this baby’s got it! Coach bags are so iconic and this one is just so 80s, it’s thrilling to hold and feel its energy! Uh oh, I’m getting all designer poetic again. But seriously! This is lush perfection and should be yours!

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!

Vintage Velvet Floor Length Gown With Beaded Butterfly Appx Size Medium (1940s) – $62.00
This dress is EVERYTHING! Everyone at the shop and all my friends and every passer-by on the street who I make look at this dress agrees. I described it on the Etsy Shop as Morticia Addams in the spring. I’m sure Morticia is a bit cranky in April because all that sunshine is on its way, so she cheers herself by wearing this gown that brings springtime to her bodice without her actually having to leave the house. Buy this dress and do a spell and take pictures because I want to see!

20160401-IMG_1486
Vintage Champagne Floral Embroidered Shirt Dress with Belt Appx Size Medium (1960s) – $48.00
This is a really special dress, you guys. It has so much inviting detail and is so lovingly made. It makes me happy to look at/touch this beautiful dress. If it fit me I would take her home and introduce her to all my other dresses, but it does not, so I must send her to another closet!

20160401-IMG_1503
Vintage Navy Blue Floral Party Dress With Bow Back and Satin and Tulle Lined Crinoline Appx Size Small (1950s) – $54.00
Of course the bows on the back kill me. I love bows! I also have such a weakness for tulle ESPECIALLY red tulle! So that yummy edge of tulle along the hem of the skirt KILLS ME! I’m just gonna say it: this is the perfect dress! Buy it and endlessly spin in your gown full of sass!

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!
