1950s dress sisters


Not that long ago, last month in fact, I had one of my all-time favorite dresses in the shop. 1950s black soft boucle knit wiggle dress with gorgeous gold bugle beading - sigh...it sold, but last week I found her sister dress (below), same size only the beading is in silver as opposed to gold! I was sort of in shock and I admit I sort of almost cried a little bit. I remember just taking some steps back from the rack when I found it just to catch my breath. I mean, these dresses are rare enough, but to find two in the span of 30 days? Makes me think they might have been owned by the same woman maybe?
The sister dress is available here

Wow, how weird! Wont you keep this one though, since you seem to like them so much I mean?

Btw, I must say I adore your etsy shop and I´m so glad I found my way to your blog too :) Although, I haven´t had the opportunity to buy anything from you yet, I´m sure I will some day. If the red silk skirt still is available when I get my first salary ( have been a student for many years and now I´m done!) I think I´ll bbuy it :)

And just one last thing. You always seems to find really nice stuff and update your shop so often. Do happen to have any dreamy green gown in that´s now in your shop yet? :p I´m on the hunt for a bridesmaid dress you see... :)

I thought the first dress was so beautiful, but alas, it didn't fit my measurements. The second dress is seriously stunning.

Thanks doll,

I am so happy that both of these stunning dresses will be living together in my closet!
Thanks so much, Lauren.

Great ! Both the dresses looks fabulous but seriously I liked the second one more. I always hunt for dresses like this one that looks elegant and beautiful. I would love to add it to my closet.
