I don’t know about you, but my online vintage dress browsing usually goes like this:
Looks like an old rag
Who on earth has a 22 inch waist?
You see my problem. I love vintage styles, but it can be a hit (and very) miss affair. Add to that the issue of my specs, which if I’m not careful, can turn the wrong kind of vintage dress into Nanna-wear on me.
However, I’ve recently discovered JolieVintageShop on Etsy, and it’s one of my latest obsessions. Their stock is really well chosen, good quality clothing and the prices are very reasonable indeed. Here are some of my current favourites:
I just bought the 1940s Film Noir dress. It’s unlike anything else in my wardrobe, and I love that it has a 1940s shape but it’s not too ‘boxy’. Shipping for each dress is $15 to Australia, but the seller does combined shipping too.
Now, back to work for me!
