2017 is all about new beginnings and for many it means refreshing their wardrobe. I would LOVE to do an add-on to my vintage collection this year (not restart) but due to current situations in my life and space I’m all about the virtual window shopping instead. So thank you Pinterest for allowing me to fill up my “closet” with so many fantastic vintage goodies.

Lets go shopping in my virtual closet friends!

Dresses

1940s Rayon Dress. This would be marvelous on the dance floor. Who ever now owns it, is one lucky gal.

This is a Liz dress…right here. I can see it on me already, I can see where I would wear it and how I would wear my hair. Now someone else owns this, but I don’t think that should stop me from dreaming about one day owning this early 1940’s day dress.

Like most of the Vintage community, I have a love for the designer Jonathan Logan and his 1950’s designs. What a great colour combination, and look at those pockets!

  1. Oh Liz. You certainly have great taste. I know I would be thrilled to own any of your virtual picks. But I especially love the 40s dresses and that killer Dorothy O Hara suit!

    As far as designers, that’s a tough one as there are so many I love. But I think I wouldn’t mind having one of Elsa Shiaparelli’s fabulous printed dresses from the 1930s.

  2. You do indeed have great taste! I don’t think I have any particular designer obsessions but a really good 40s dress is on my “one day” list. I had a hard time resisting a hat-box print one on Instagram recently!
