chicky, that’s so beautiful. I love the fifties era skirt – or at least what I imagine that era to look like!

jduck84- thanks!! The only problem is its from an australian designer that doesn’t offer their styles in the US, that I can find anyhow. I’ve tried to find it pre-worn, since it is a little out of my price range…but I am hoping to just have it made. It is ballerina-length which leaves just enough room to rock a bad a** pair of shoes!!!

I have two vintage dresses. I bought them offline and they were not right for me. One needs a new zipper. One needs to be cleaned.

 

if anyone wants them, let me know… If you pay shipping and want the hassle of getting them to a cleaner or fixing the zipper let me know.

 

the first is this one…but in ivory/white it was clean and like  pictured but came with broken zipper.

and didn’t look good with my full hips.

the second is this:

it looks gorgeous in the picture, but it is TINY more like a 1/3/5

It needs a good good cleaning. It came and looked almost grey. I was really really disappointed with that site.

If anyone wants them let me know
I would not feel right selling them as they are not worth it with the fixes needed and I felt let down getting them and wouldn’t want to do that

Almostduffy, I messaged you.  I am in love with the second dress.  I’m so sorry you weren’t happy with either one!
