A Bit of a Carrie On.

I really have to time the photography of my outfit posts better.  I took these shots at the weekend when it started snowing and ever since we’ve had fabulous sunshine in NYC – the snow has almost melted and the sun has been shining. Well, fashion favours the brave and here I am trying out a different kind of style – my new vintage dress from one of my favourite Ebay sellers, vach22450.

I might regret sharing with you all the name of this seller but they have some very cute vintage dresses on their listing. A couple of weeks ago I narrowly missed out on an emerald-green 70s style Halston maxi dress which would have been perfect for the summer in Manhattan.  I bought this dress for a bargain price at the same time I was bidding for (and losing) the Halston, it really was a steal.  This week another Halston maxi, an Oscar De La Renta party dress and an YSL gown were sold.  I think if you love vintage dresses in 70s and 80s styles you will love this seller.  I’m still finding my stride with vintage, but on this particular dress I adore the detail of the lace fringing as it’s unlike anything that I own.  The fabric is also super light and floaty which gives it an ethereal feel to me.

I’m wondering about your experiences with vintage, Blog Reader, and any places that you like to search to find it, whether it be online or a local store… do you like to buy or wear vintage? Are there any vintage ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’?
