Programing notice; we will be closed tomorrow to celebrate our nation’s 149th bday. We will resume regular hours as of Saturday.  A cat has got my tongue now leaving me uncharacteristically quiet and without commentary so I will just leave you with this week’s freshly installed window. Enjoy!

I realize that this window is a bit of a stretch in the colour compatibility department. I guess I’m just feeling wild and risky this week! Or, it’s that I just had to showcase these beauties before they find new homes and leave us behind. I’m totally head over heels in love with the Oscar on the right! The feather and tulle hem is so feminine and it reminds me of  that robin egg blue Chanel confection that we had back in 2014. The Prada in the centre isn’t too bad either…

L~1950’s butterfly print cotton skirt, size 4-6 Sold. Worn with a tank and a Victorian jet bead lariat/belt.

C~Prada dusty rose/mocha silk taffeta dress, size 2-4. Worn with a 1960’s crystal and pearl necklace.

We didn’t quite know what to call this colour…… Ice blue, steel blue, slate blue or periwinkle blue? We decided to settle on powder blue, as it’s soft with a hint of grey. The Prada dress on the left is one of ten incredibly beautiful dresses that we received in this week. We hope to feature them all for you  in the window before they sell. There are some really exquisite pieces from houses like Chanel, Oscar and Valli just to name a few. Pop in soon for a peek!

L~ Prada appliqué on organza dress, size 4-6. Sold

C~ Ceil Chapman (Marilyn M’s fav)1950’s  silk chiffon gown, size 6.

R~ 1960’s hand crochet raffia dress, size 4-6. Worn with a 1970’s crystal necklace.

We have always had a soft spot for Mosch¡no! When it comes through the door here we are instantly thrilled to the gills to see and try it on. Whether it’s a contemporary piece by Jeremy Scott or a vintage number from the past, we just adore the tongue in cheek  humour that the brand evokes. Our current display features two items from the witty fashion house. Can you tell which one is contemporary and which is from the 1980’s? Take a peek below for the answer.

Now that we’ve blown our beak off about one of our favs, let’s get back to discussing the rest of our white window. There is nothing more crisp and clean looking than an ensemble of white. Wearing white is suitable for the following occasions; getting married, going to a white party, getting off of a charge in court (tried and proven x 2), meeting the future in-laws and ascension to heaven. Let us help you be a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

L~D&G cotton corset dress, size 2-6. Worn with a 1980’s Moschino reflective belt.

C~ Contemporary Moschino sequin T-shirt dress, general size S.

R~ Herve Leger bandage dress, size XS Sold. Worn with a 1970’s black crystal necklace.
