Oooh look!!  Yeah it is tiny and needs some serious steaming… but this 40’s dress with the big puff sleeves has removable longer sleeves /gauntlet things, a slip, buttons allllll the way down the back, and best of all (IMO), the photo of the original bride in the original frame!!  Too adorable, but I’m a sentimental fool like that! And $99!

@MsInterpret: I love that it comes with the original photo. How amazing is that?

I’ve been kinda hoarding dresses on my etsy favourites list (it’s like shopping without the credit card charges!) so this might take a while… Laughing


Love the silhouette! Lower the neckline a bit or remove the sleeves entirely and you’ve got something completely modern. Plus the dot tulle is adorable.


Gorgeous back:


So it’s a nightgown… but I still love it. Add a silk slip and you’ve got a gorgeous Grecian gown worthy of a wedding – and it’s only $30!


Another nightgown! This one would make a beautiful dress for an informal garden or beach wedding, engagement shoot, rehearsal…


Pretty ballerina style!


Wow, look at that train! The hat’s a bit Undecided though


I adore the detailing on this 1930s gem:


Fluffy fairytale fun:


Gorgeous built-in shoulder wrap:


A little OTT with the detailing, but with some of it removed this one has a lot of potential:


There are a lot of dresses like this on there (full ball gown with long lacy sleeves), so I’ll only post these two… but if you’re after something like this I’m sure you’ll find something perfect!

In ruffly lace:


And in dupioni silk:


Just gorgeous:


This one’s not like the others at all but still technically vintage… very modern-looking!


Beaded beauty and something a little different. Looks very 1920s but I think it’s a lot more modern than that (the ad doesn’t mention the era).


Glorious silk and lace:


Believe it or not, there’s still more to come… I’ve so far restricted my list to things that look a bit more bridal (white / ivory and mainly full length) but I’ve also found some gorgeous colourful frocks that would make great non-traditional choices or beautiful unique bridesmaid dresses. I’ll be back!

How could I forget this one… That’s ok, I think it deserves its own post Smile

Such incredible lace! And it’s a mermaid silhouette which can be quite hard to find in vintage (more commonly a-line or ball gown). Incredible value for $150 with so much potential…

One more for any Kiwis, Aussies or others who are willing to buy from overseas…

I’ve been watching this dress on http://www.trademe.co.nz (New Zealand’s local version of eBay) for a while. It’s such a shame nobody’s bidding on it! It’s gorgeous and in great condition, and it’s selling for $75 NZD (around $53 USD). I’m very tempted to email the seller and suggest etsy instead – it could probably sell for twice as much or more.

wow! I already bought a dress but after seeing these great finds it`s giving me serious second thoughts. I would love to see pictures from a bee who pulled something like this off.
