Vintage Fashion: Some Web Treasures

If you love Vintage Vogue, as I do, good news! The fabulous Shrimpton Couture ( named for 60’s supermodel Jean Shrimpton) has launched a Vintage Trunk show on their website. There are some wonderful finds in their show, that you will just enjoy looking at. I love the 1920’s dresses. Some having been lovingly restored, while others are in their original mint condition. And best of all, for the next 10 days, everything is 10% to 25% off. This site also offers layaway, so you can pay for your purchase over time. Nice touch!

Check out Mi Amour, the 1920’s Lavender dress. You can see where the Kate Moss Top Shop collection gets their inspiration.
