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!

Gunne Sax Vintage Gothic Black Lace Ruffle Bodice Maxi Dress With Satin and Purple Lace Details Appx Size Extra Small (1970s) = $74.00
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!

Gunne Sax Vintage Blue Floral Print Boho Prairie Sundress Appx Size Extra Small (1970s) – $68.00
What an absolutely perfect little sundress! I especially appreciate the polka dot tie back and detail against the floral print. Pattern mixing requires fashion courage!

Gunne Sax Vintage Boho Burgundy Floral Print Prairie Dress With Lace and Velvet Details Appx Size Extra Small (1970s) – $64.00
Oh boy is this dress ever a doll! It’s adorned with the prettiest red satin ribbon and black lace and yummy velvet details and ties in the back in a big pretty bow and has wonderful deep darling pockets and I am SO IN LOVE! What a perfect dress.

Vintage Blue Floral Peplum Patchwork Gunne Sax Style Peasant Dress Appx Size Extra Small/Small (1970s) – $42.00
(This isn’t a Gunne Sax dress, but it’s very much the same style. Her more affordable cousin!)
The weather is sunny and warm and all I want to do is look at sundresses! Here’s an extra beautiful darling. There’s that peplum again, trying to steal my heart! I love the ribbon detail and gorgeous patchwork. Summer, 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!

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!

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!

Kenrose Vintage Gingham Cotton Day Dress with Lace Trim and Pockets Appx Size Small/Medium (1940s) – $74.00
