There is alot more than this, like cute shorts and pants, but I don't have shorts hanger! So I couldnt hang those up and take pictures of them!
I’ll be getting the photos done by tomorrow, and they should be listed by this Thursday at the latest.
Have a quick squiz, and do take note that these all need a quick iron and that they’re off to the dry cleaners tomorrow after the shoot. xx

here it is:
See more photos here.
AMAZING little Vintage Dress! Such a rare and gorgeous find. Beautiful, cobolt blue print, just above the knee in length and with a Victorian style high neckline.
Great going out dress, and well, just a great all-year-round piece.
Very Classy, Very Chic, Very Cheap and Very You!
-Eye catching, wow, I love this little number!
-Long sleeved, looks great rolled up, or worn down and buttoned up
- Beautiful pleated hem, great for dancing and boogying, but also looks amazing as you walk.
- Unlined, but has facing in all of the appropriate places.
- Just above the knee in length (shown on a 5’6” model in pictures)
-Front is button up to neck, but has a flap over the buttons to hide them.
- Elastic waistband
- Great design detail on shoulders, a flap over the seam to give an impression on bigger shoulders (slightly), a common feature in garments in the 80’s.
-Great buttons on cuffs of sleeves, and top of neckline.
- Very comfortable
-Very sexy with the right heels!
- Loose fit bust-to fit size 8AUS-10AUS, or 4-6US
All Measurements are taken with the garment lying flat on a table; we suggest that you compare them to a similar item before purchase. All Measurements are taken from the front of the garment only. All measurements are in Inches. Multiply measurements by 2, to get full bust waist and hip measurements.
Bust- 19” Loose Fit
Waist- 12”-17” Elasticized
Hip- N/A Pleated
Shoulder to Shoulder- 16”
Shoulder to Hem (Length) - 34”
Sleeve- 23” Including Cuff
Neck length (measured by moving tape measure around neckline) - 10” (front)
It’s in impeccable condition for its age. No discoloring, no physical faults. The pleated hem has possibly gone out of shape a little, but barely noticeable.
HOW TO WEAR IT:
It really is a great piece. I love it when it has its sleeves rolled up and the neck is undone to leave lapels and a V-neckline. Very Casual and chic.
However, for nighttime, with the neckline done up, a good pair of patterned tights and a striking pair of heels its INCREDIBLE! Great length to be slightly provocative if needed ;-).
Great for the late teens, early to mid 20’s and even those stunning 30’s.

Well, I have a GIANT to-do list today, and well, for the rest of the week. I've managed to drop down to 2 shifts a week at work to get a few things on the roll for my poor starving business. It really needs some tender loving care.
But you'll never guess what! I am now a proud owner of a swanky new iPhone 3gs....... all the nerds are jealous...
But, why is this great? I can now promise my customers that I can get back to them within 4 hours. It alerts me when I get a new email from certain sources (like etsy and ebay) so I can be super speedy and keep those customers happy! *yesssssssss* Go me.
I also got a printer. FINALLY, and I'm on the way to getting a desk soon too. Finally. I'm using my botfriends at the moment and he hates it. I've girlie-fied everthing, neatened up the office and put an old vintage stool in here and a bunch of flowers. hey, you gotta do what ya gotta do to get you working, hey?
Oh, and I also got a whopping $120 invoice from ebay!! I'm trying to beath calmly at the moment about it, for one months work where I sold my good quality rare vintage finds for less than $50 each I almost fell over backwards. They barely even covered their cost of buying them in the first place.....damn you ebay!!!*shakes fist*
But, apart from all of those antics, I'm PUMPED for this week!! I have a few more bsuiness projects on the planning board to get up and running when The Little Vintage Dress Shop starts running smoothly, and I'm SO excited.
Also, when these business ideas start getting put to use, The Little Vintage Shop will start specialising in one off, SUPER RARE, couture/avant guarde vintage garments. Prices ranging from AUD$65-$250+. Yes, super rare. I've found another highly sought after vintage suplier and I managed to get in on the buying list! Woo! How I love them so.
And yes, we will be doing lay-bys! Can't afford the whole cost? Pay it off week by week for a period of time until the whole payment is made, and it will be sent lovingly to you.
Anyway, I have a mountain of paperwork to get through, a few more listings to list on ebay (finishing next wed at 9pm Brisbane Time- follow the clock up the top right on this page) and a few more hopefully on etsy? Hmmmm, I need to conquer the ebay selling technique! It's really bugging me!

Moving on........guess what!! I've ticked a few things off my list!!
I can officially tie my hair up with only a pencil!! I tried to take a picture, but it wouldn't quite show up...I will post a post on how to do it in the next couple of days....it's so cool! Because I'm one of those sad people that buy a packet of hairbands and happen to lose them all in a matter of weeks.....and I canNEVER find a hairband!!!
Also, I baked my very own loaf of bread!!! It was AMAZING....... I had to take a few pictures... It was sourdough loaf, with olives and cheese melted ontop....It took 2 days to rise, then another day when I added the second part of the mixture....and it was eaten within 3 hours... so worth it. It was very heavy, so you could only eat one piece at a time, but it's so morish..... probably not the best thing to bake again...but the average loaf costs about 35c (including the olves and cheese) and it's so much better for you than store bought bread.......
so i get some ready for the next 18 hours rise, and sit in the corner for the next week stuffing my face full of homemade bread...
Oh, I'm off to New Zealand in a couple of months. Kiwi land. Land of the sheep. So will be doing alot of op-shopping while I'm over there..... can't wait........
Well, I best be off..... have alot of things to do tonight......like sitting on the couch and relaxing...had a hectic day at work today.....and also coz i'm having a hot love affair with the couch :-P
Much love vintage-ers....
