Remember when women wore beautiful dresses? Yeah, me either.
So, this post is for people who love vintage clothing and dresses from bygone eras. Think: Roaring 20s, Frolicking 40s, Fabulous 50s, Swinging 60s — even the Turbulent 30s. Think: Your mother’s coming of age and your grandmother’s generation. I’m so happy to have teamed up with Shabby Apple to give away one of the following vintage-styled dresses:
Snapdragon, Heart of Me, Dressage, Grand National, Hackney, Captain, Admiral, Cut the Cake, At last, At first site, My vow to you, Maid of honor, Together forever, Ever after, Save the date, Moon River, Ski Bop, Some like it Hot, Tiber, Andes Skirt, Jetty Skirt, Ballerina, Nantucket, Boogie Woogie, Marigold Skirt, Lime Ricki Skirt, Park Picnic Skirt, Hully Gully Skirt or Newcomb Skirt.
Why Are Clothes So Ugly, Anyway?
Remember when women’s dresses were beautiful? Yeah, me either. In an interview last year British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood nailed it. “Everyone looks the same and their clothes have never been so ugly.” She blames modern styles on fast and disposable fashion. She went on to say that everyone looks like clones and the only people who are noticeable are in their 70s.
That is so true! The one woman who really stands out at church on Sunday is over 70 and has white hair. She wears, beautiful and colorful classic suits. And, her shoes always match, but not in that obnoxious matchy-matchy way. She has something the rest of us have completely lost: style. Ugh.

“…As feminine women, we create clothing that is artful in design and crafted with a vintage-style flare. Each piece is carefully constructed to both flatter a women’s figure and maintain her mystery. As feminists, we created a company that is women-owned and operated and that donates to help other women start their own businesses. With our old-fashioned style and modern ideals, we believe the best is yet to come!”
