# 6739 - c. 1950's Off White Organdy with Black Velvet Flocking Dress!  I Love the design, but this dress could use a soaking or something to brighten it back up.  It's just a bit dull from the years of dust.  In addition, you will see tiny age spots (see photos).  I don't know how to clean, so I just leave it to the next person and price accordingly!  I'm making it sound MUCH worse than it is in person!!!!   So cute though!  Measures:  up to 33/34" bust, up to 28/29" waist, 26" long from waist to hem.  Back metal zipper.  Thin spaghetti straps.  NEW LISTING!   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 11308 - c. 1940's Black Rayon Taffeta Gown with Black Sequin Bow and Net Yoke!  If  you remember what Rhett Butler told Mammy in Gone with the Wind, it was that women LOVE the rustling sound of taffeta.  And he bought her a red taffeta petticoat.  This is one of those rustle gowns.  Black gown with interesting "v" drop waistline, sweetheart neckline with netting yoke... and then the pretty black sequin bow at front.  Side metal zipper.  Excellent condition.  Nothing wrong... but if you don't need a black gown, you might want to consider shortening this one to a dress length.  I generally hate suggesting that vintage dresses be renovated, but this one would get more wear if short. Measures:  up to 36" bust, up to 28" waist, 58" long from shoulder to hem.    NEW LISTING!   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 6788 - c. 1980's  RICHILENE, New York Black Sheer Netting Lined Dress with Gold "Glitter" Sold at the Specialty Shop Esther Wolf, Houston TX!  If you don't know this label, you can research yourself... but Richilene was a high-end label back in the 1970s and 1980s.  I have seen original price tags on vintage Richilene dresses and gowns for $800 - over $2000.  Again... that is $2000 - $5000 today!  So you know these are quality goods!  Black sheer netted full skirted dress with low "v" bodice. Back zipper.  The beauty of this dress is in the glitter design.  It's all over and will sparkle under the lights.  And the full skirt of 4 layers! Wear with or without a belt (none come with it, but it probably had a black belt with bow front.... at least that's what I imagine!).  Measures:  up to 40" bust, up to 30" waist, 40" long from shoulder to hem.  Shoulder pads (yup, the 1980s).  Excellent condition!  If you love it and it's too large, this is an easy dress to make smaller at back.  Just sayin'! :) And/or shorten to cap sleeves.  Whatever!!  NEW LISTING!   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 11275 - c. 1933-1935 Black Knit Bathing Suit with White Buttons Decor! OK... first things first.... the white "belt" is just a ribbon I used to show you what it originally looked like with a belt.  Doesn't come with it.  But the bathing suit itself is great looking due to the white decorative buttons on both sides of bust and on shoulders.  The buttons have some wear (see photos) but could easily be painted back to the original look.  Now this bathing suit is dated thanks to my favorite website:  The Vintage Fashion Guild:  "The NRA (National Recovery Act) Blue Eagle label dates from 1933-1935 only. It was a voluntary program covering many consumer goods and was initiated by FDR. It was declared unconstitutional in 1935. This is the famous ‘Blue Eagle’ Label, seen only 1933-35 in USA. This label can be very handy for dating 1930s garments, accessories and even patterns."  Notice the "skirt" over the shorts.  Low "u" neck in front and even lower at back. Surprisingly NOT A MOTH HOLE to be found!!! You will see a few minor holes on the lining ONLY.  In a larger wearable size.  Lots of stretch!  So will fit 32" bust/34" low waist/40" hips OR will easily go up to 42" bust/40" low waist/ 44" hips.  NEW LISTING!   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 5938 - c. 1940's Lilli Ann of San Francisco Black and White Checked "Matchstick" Suit!Oh dear...So Schiaparelli-ish. Wonderfully cool what I call "matchstick" design on this black and white checked fitted suit!  Unfortunately as much as I love it.. so did the moths over the years!!!  Probably the worst condition of anything you will ever find on my website. Check out that left sleeve (at right in the photo, of course).  Yikes!  But if you are a fashion student, or a collector of Lilli Ann, or a wonderful restorer, well, I figured you might like this.  At least it's worth appreciating!  NEW LISTING!   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

I'm "breakin' out" the skirts and blouses!  I actually love this one!   I added a crinoline under (doesn't come with it), so it can look full as you see, or hang straighter from the box pleats (see one photo!).  Side metal zipper. Measures:  25" long from waist to hem (with extra 4" hem inside), 27" waist. Excellent condition.  Adorable!   NEW LISTING!   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 11188 - c. 1990's RICHARD K. TSAO Thai Silk Mandarin Cocoon Jacket/ Blouse!  The write-ups on Richard Tsao's designs reads: " IT TAKES ONE WEEK TO WEAVE 50 YARDS OF SILK SINCE IT IS STILL WOVEN ON THE OLD FASHION HAND LOOM. HENCE THE LITTLE KNOTS FROM TIME TO TIME. IT TAKES ABOUT ONE WHOLE DAY TO CONSTRUCT ONE COCOON JACKET. THE ELASTIC IS ACTUALLY SEWN ONTO THE SILK AFTER IT IS WOVEN.  PRODUCTION IS KEPT SMALL."  And "Richard Tsao is an artist.  He brings his artistic eye for color to his rich palette of silk designs. Tsao’s exquisite jewel-toned creations are evocative of the rich tropical hues of his native Thailand. The silk that Tsao uses for his designs is not mass-produced and does not undergo mechanized finishing treatments. Hand woven from hand spun pure silk yarn on old-fashioned looms, the painstaking process results in a lustrous fabric with a luxurious texture. It can take up to a year to hone each of his designs. This artisanal quality and attention to detail is part of Thailand’s rich arts and crafts tradition to which Tsao feels deeply connected."  His pieces are considered art.  They sell at Museums, and this exact color cocoon jacket (as he calls it) was highlighted at the Hammond Museum:  http://www.hammondmuseum.org/trunkshow.html, North Salem, NY.   The fabric is quite stretchy, so will fit a variety of bodies.   Wear ART!  Excellent condition. 26" long from shoulder to hem.  36" bust unstretched.

# 5990 - c. 1960's Hartzfeld's, Kansas City Black and White Dress!  I'm a sucker for Black and White.  I attribute it to the fact that I'm reincarnated from a B&W cat.  OK.. I only slightly believe that, but something makes me think I can communicate with my two kitties!  :)  Oh well... before you think I'm insane, let's get back to this particular dress.  Black halter bodice with "v" neck, wide midriff striped satin waistband matching the wider skirt border and the white silk skirt.  GREAT!  And even more interesting is the upper back panel that gives the back a sexy open look. Now, I could stop there and tell you it's in Excellent condition, however... as you can see, someone during its lifetime needed the dress to be larger, so they inset black side panels.  So, it's not horrible (as some renovations might be), but it's obvious to those of you who care.  The good news is that it makes it a nice, wearable size now.... so stop your bellyachin'! :)  And if you REALLY can't stand it, you can revamp it again using additional striped material from the 2.5" hem and make the increase disappear from a distance!  OK... so currently measures: 34/35" bust, 26" waist (slightly high or empire).  41" long from shoulder to hem.  Metal zipper back.   Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 7137 - c. 1950's Natural Straw Colored Floral Wide Brim Hat From a museum deaccession and still has the original museum hangtags.  Lovely, floppy straw large brim hat with large silk flowers.  However, as you will see from the photos, there is a "bite" out of the edge of the brim at front.  Check it out.  That's why this hat is in the Under $150 category.  So... get creative with a little trimming... a green velvet ribbon diagonally draped on the brim?  Smaller matching silk flowers scattered on the brim?  Use your millinery design sense to make it your own.  Still a great vintage straw hat from a museum !!   Under $150, so Final Sale Item.

# 6726 - c. 2000's ALBERTO MAKALI, New York, Paris, Milano Black Draped Bustier with Beading!  Yeah, I know... I'm supposed to be selling antique and vintage items... but every once in a while, I get carried away with some really great new piece.  I envision all sorts of things you can do with this!  A strapless bustier, wrapped at the front with a long drape with a "spray" of small black beads.  That's it!  So, I'm thinking you can wear as is, or you can turn it into a halter top with matching or other color scarf or ribbon.  Or you can make straps with ribbons, or you can wear with ultra short bolero, or you can.... loads of things!!  Dress up, dress down.  Whatever you want.  A bit too small for this mannequin, so the side zipper will zip up all the way on you (not her - she needs to go on a diet). Measures:  33/34" bust,  28" waist. Mint condition. Marked size 4.  Under $150 so final sale.

#5371A - c. 1980's Lille Rubin White Lace and Cream Colored Sequin Blouse with Original Camisole!  The only reason this blouse is priced so low is the discoloration at the back of the neck lace (see photo) which goes a bit into the one shoulder as well.  Haven't tried cleaning it.  Otherwise it's quite nice, pretty, frilly and romantic... that's what was popular in the late 1970's, early 1980's!  This came from the Lillie Rubin boutique shop.  They carried all sorts of designer pieces under their own label.  But I wouldn't say this was TOP designer quality, but VERY GOOD.  I'm very picky remember!!!  Measures: up to 40" bust (but no give to the fabric, so best to be a bit smaller), up to 37" waist, up to 43" hips,  with camisole with about a 34" bust - so you can see the blouse is meant to be worn loose and flowy. Rhinestone buttons up the front! The sequins are a slightly different color from the white lace which makes them stand out more.    Under $150, so FINAL SALE ITEM.

Peterman comb.. this is much smaller.  You will also see that it's just a painted butterfly glued on to a scunci comb.  It sold for $60 back in 2002.  :)  Still a cute butterfly comb for those of you who want the look but don't want to break the bank!

# 7132 - c. 1960's Henri Bendel, Paris, New York Red Wool Pompoms Hat Henri Bendel is an American upscale women's specialty store based in New York City.  Mr. Bendel was a milliner by trade, and was the first retailer to bring the designs of Coco Chanel over to the United States from Paris. The company he founded maintained this tradition of introducing influential socialites to what's new in fashion, so no surprise that this hat came from Bendels. ;)  Wild, wacky, unique design.  Certainly something that would get noticed!  From a museum deaccession.  Not sure if it was worn down over the forehead as I show, or more back of the head as was more the style in the 1960s.  Wear it however it looks best on you.

# 7164 - c. 1950's Nassau, The Bahamas Vacation Dress! I always seek out unique "novelty" items!  Anything that just makes you smile. Bringing a bit of whimsy or fun in your wardrobe, though they still have to be attractive enough to wear. So how cool is this!  A simple white printed linen dress with "postcards" of Nassau, the Bahamas hotels, transportation and history lessons.  As I lifted from some website, "From those halcyon days – when Nassau was a top destination for affluent sailors, powerboaters and game fishermen."  SO sad that most all of these hotels are now gone. But this might just be the right dress for some of you with fond memories of these places. Measures:  up to 34/35" bust, up to 31" waist, up to 42" hips, 42" long from shoulder to hem, and 16" from shoulder to waist, but stills sits a bit short-waisted  - which isn't a problem, and if you are long waisted, you just wear a belt to bring down to your waist.  NOTE:  I'm 34" bust, 26" waist, 38" hips, and it looks great on me as well!  So you don't have to be the larger size above for this to fit beautifully.   Not true with many pieces.  May have been homemade, but nicely done.
For some reason I forgot to photograph the back, but it's nearly exactly the same as the front, with a back metal zipper.  The dress has a waist seam for shape, otherwise it's just a sheath.  Excellent condition. Unlined for warm weather. And unhemmed as you see, so will need to hem up where you want.  Under $150, so FINAL SALE.

# 7417 - c. 2000's LAUNDRY by Shelli Segal Black Jersey "Marilyn Monroe" Halter Dress! OK... so you didn't want to spend $5.4 million for the actual white halter dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in "The Seven Year Itch".... aka "The subway dress"?   Well... would you like a black version for a heck of a lot less??  This one is a nice weight black jersey and looks smashing on!  Hope you can see the detail of the large diamond shape at middle with all the gathering for a sexy shape. LOW "v" neckline, halter back.  Hidden side zipper.  Excellent condition.  Stretches so it's hard to measure, but it's labeled a size 2 which is about correct with today's sizing.  I measure as:  up to 34" bust, up to 27" waist, up to 36" hips, 42" long from shoulder to hem.  The dress is actually two layers, so it hangs beautifully.    Under $150, so final sale.

# 5370 - c. 1970's Made in Mexico White Cotton Gown with Pastel Embroidered Floal Design! In the 1970s, Edwardian white lawn dresses came back into vogue, and so did Mexican cotton gowns... many called Mexican wedding gowns. Here's one that is slightly different from the norm, but also from Mexico, 100% cotton gown.. this one with light pink and light aqua blue embroidered flowers at the front bodice and along the tabbed hemline and upper back!  The lace edged straps on this gown are VERY long though I'm not sure why... so I show the dress worn as a halter, but certainly it would just just as easy to shorten the straps to wear  straight over the shoulders.  The upper back of this gown have four  long embroidered ""scarves".  If you don't like them, the dress is plain under and you can just remove them.  I show them just hidden under in one of the photos, OR use the material to increase the size of this gown!!  Back zipper.  Excellent condition.  Measures: 35" bust, up to 25" waist, 17" from shoulder to waist (or shorten straps), 60" long from shoulder to hem. (6806)     Under $150, so final sale.

# 5554 - c. 1970's CREATION LERON Floral Chiffon Gown with Matching Overblouse! Are you an "Autumn"? I'm a "Winter". Or so they tell me. But there must be something to this, since I would look horrible in these colors, and yet my fair-skinned Mother always gravitates to this palette. I remember my ritzy sister brought back a similar floral chiffon outfit from Paris in the 1970's. I was so jealous. I coveted that outfit. But she nearly wore it out she wore it so much. Years later I got the matching blouse from her "hand-me-downs" which I've kept to this day. I never wore it, since it looked great on her (blonde, blue eyed, fair skinned) and as I've said, lousy on me, but I loved to look at it!! So you know I love this gown... and it also comes with the sheer chiffon matching overblouse with attached sash bow at collar and gathered sleeve (which may be overkill worn together - but would be great to wear with other solid color item!) Measures: 34" bust, 27/28" waist, 38" long skirt from waist to hem. Back metal zipper, Sheer lined bodice. Black taffeta skirt under chiffon skirt. Best on 5'2" woman or shorter to be floor length. Excellent condition except for the heel tear in the skirt 2.5" up from the hem. I'd live with it, since you would have likely done the same thing.. and it keeps the price affordable!

The tour grossed over $21,000,000 and The Judds were named the top grossing concert act of 1991. The tour broke records but it broke hearts too, as the girls said a tearful goodbye to the loyal fans who had loved and supported them for nearly a decade. On December 4, 1991, The Judds performed their final concert. The sell-out crowd and over six million pay-per-view fans watched as Wynonna and Naomi took their final bows.

# 5361 - c. 1980's FERRAGAMO Red Suede Wedge Shoes with Gold Ornaments!  So these shoes still have the original price tag inside one of the shoes.  Original price of $245, reduced  to $171.97, then to $146.97, and finally to $122.50 when they were purchased... but as you can see, this label is hardly touched, so even though there is a bit of wear to the sole, and one dirt mark on one side of the toe, they were likely not worn more than once or twice.  So, I'm looking for Cinderella with a size 6.5A foot.  WHY??  As they are marked size 8AAAA??  Well, I have NO idea... all I can tell you is that I wear 6.5 M (with a slightly ever so wider than medium foot), and I can wear these (!) though they are just a slightly bit thin, but still not bad.  Perhaps a size 6A as well, as I guess they are perhaps a bit small as well, but it's hard to tell as my wider foot might be using up a bit of length.  Perhaps this is why they didn't sell at the higher price!  Mystery solved!  Even at this, the shoes are marked 8AA inside, but someone wrote 8 4A on the tag, and then continued to penmark in the additional two A's inside the shoes!!!  WHATEVER!  Under $150, so Final Sale.

Sally Victor was a highly desired label in the 50s.  That hat is a stiff, fairly heavy straw, with the lightness of the floppy silk flowers (that could be fluffed up a bit and starched.  LOVE that red wooden "fruit" at front with the one white flower!  Sweet!  Measures:  16" x 16" x 4" tall.  Fits a normal size 22 head.   Also listed in the Hats Category.  Also Under $150 so final sale.

As with all the antique garters, the elastic is stretched out, so if you want to wear these, you will just need to tack in some new elastic.

It does NOT have the original tag to confirm 100% silk, Made in Japan, but as it's the same scarf as the one above, there is no question.  Measures: 31" x 31" square.  Colors of red, with white, gray and gold.   Love the tassel and swags design! Excellent condition. May not have been worn... still has what seems like original folds.   Under $150 so final sale.

# 5151 - LANVIN, Paris Silk Scarf of Animals! Sadly I am at a loss for words to describe the design on this scarf!   It looks lovely as you can see from afar... but as you zoom in on the design it starts to look like the designer was high on drugs when he/she created this! :)  There are oak leaves and acorns in the center and then the list of animals include:  cat, owl, rabbit, eagle, chicken, dog, lobster, rat, turtle, lion, squirrel, porcupine, cricket, birds, turkey, ox... and more! And then (for good measure) two women... one clothed, one topless!  Whoo-whoo!  Colors are deep rose, muted plum, with rose, blue, purple and army green edged in black with gold. Measures: 34.5" x 34.5". Excellent condition. May not have been worn... still has what seems like original folds.  Under $150 so final sale.

# 4976 - c. 1890 B. ALTMAN & COMPANY, New York Pink Broche Boudoir Slippers! If it wasn't for the darkening of the back of these slipper shoes, they would be considered Excellent condition.  But it seems that whatever they used for gluing in the heel of these shoes bled through the lovely pink brocade (or broche). Pink chiffon and pink satin flower decorations adorn the front of the shoes. Quilted interior sides. So pretty. These might fit you if you have a very thin foot.  Measures: 10" long x 2.5" wide. Under $150, so final sale.

# 6864A - c. 1910/1911 Edwardian Embroidered Trained Silk Gown!  ALERT: Although I don't often sell items in fair or even poor condition, ever once in a while I figure there may be some of you who don't mind, and would rather just be able to have a lovely piece in no matter WHAT condition.  Perhaps you know how to stabilize fabrics, or what something beautiful to restore.  So... here's one of those pieces.   A fine ivory silk embroidered trained gown with lace trim. As you can see, there is all sorts of fabric weakness and one large hole at the mid-skirt (see photos).  The underarms have staining as well.   If you can stabilize, then you have a lovely display gown.  Shown on the size 6 mannequin, so it's a decent size for an antique gown of up to 36/37" bust, up to 28" waist, up to 40" hips, 57" long from shoulder to hem in front, 66" long in back.  Labeled M. Slavin, Boylston Street (that's likely Boston).  Under $150 so Final Sale Item.

# 7604 - c. 1980's "Karin Stevens" Floral Cotton Off-the-Shoulder Dress!  This was when the 1980's dresses evoked the 1950's... no huge padded shoulders on this!  I put Karen Stevens in quotes as there is no label, but I have seen this dress before with the label so....  Not a high-end label, but still a damn pretty dress, so it gets a place on my website.  I'm very picky, so you know I have to love a dress.  The cap sleeves and sweetheart neckline bodice are boned.  there are also thin straps.  The back is fully smocked with elastic for a great fit.   Also quite comfortable!  Has pockets at the sides. Yea! Zipper back. Wear with a crinoline for this look (not included).  French country floral pattern.  Note:  the black belt is not included.... just looks great with it.  Measures:  36" bust, 27" waist with elastic back for larger sized waist, full hips.
