And this is all on top of the recent reductions we've made in prices of 15-30%, you can't say we're not good to you!
Get in early, we're open from 10am until 6pm. It's time to get your next party dresses and indulge in a little girlie time. Bring some friends and after making all those savings you'll be able to relax over brunch knowing you've got some fabulous unique vintage party outfits at fabulous prices!

In the mean time for some amazing inspiration and drool worthy images have a look at:
This is my new favourite blog and it's making me want to get married all over again...believe me you will get lost in this site, have fun!

The dashing cast!

Give me those dresses!!!

For the last week myself and the hubby have been spending our evenings watching the box set of Mad Men and we're enthralled. We're coming to the end of season one and its just so good!!!
It's set in New York at the beginning of the 60's and the fashion is to die for, the women are complicated and i do just love to hate those roguish men.
It is the complete uniqueness of vintage fashion and the attention to detail that made me fall in love with it in the first place, which in turn made me seek out a few more original Hollywood vintage fashion icons:

Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina

The uber gorgeous Audrey again

1930's Hollywood Glamour
