Whatever Suits You
Vintage Winter Red on White

Estate Sale Spoils

I went shopping for you today.  I dragged my tired body out of bed at 5:45 am to get in line to get a number to see if, by chance, I could find some vintage frocks and fancies for you.  Here's what I found:

Cosa Belle Shannon McLean dress coat
Starting at the top left and working clockwise (to a point):

  • A fabulous 1960s very "Jackie O" pink dress suit.  Slim fitted dress has long sleeves and the jacket has a wide point collar lapel and gorgeous gold buttons.  The label reads simply "T Jones" and so far I can't seem to find any information about this label, so please inform if you know anything about it.
  • The ultimate vintage pea coat by "The Villager" in the prettiest shade of blue with faux reptile skin trim & buttons.  What's better than vintage preppy?
  • Hold onto your hat.  That's a "Cosa Belle" by Shannon McLean (of bespoke tailoring fame) 1960s inspired coat dress hiding behind Coco.  Priceless.  Look for a blog post about Ms. McLean soon.
  • Coco looks stunning in this "Fabian Molina" black rayon evening gown.  Ruched through the entire bodice and falling~off~her~shoulder~sleeves...and we won't mention that slit. XXX
  • A lovely set of vintage leather luggage in my so very favorite "saddle tan" complete with (yet another) travel bar to match! 
  • Sitting on said travel bar is a lovely Morris Moskowitz evening purse...every girl should have one.
  • 1920s/30s bridal veil & shoes~~I did not purchase the dress (as I already have three) and now, post~martini, am suffering deep non~buyer's regret...
  • Left of the shoes is a 1940s "RONAY" black suede purse~~full mirror inside the top and the original change purse...amazing.
  • Resting between the two: "After Such Pleasures" by Dorothy Parker (1933 first edition, fifth printing).....sigh.
  • Shedding such lovely light on this collection is a sweet boudoir lamp with a ruffles & bow shade made for Marie Antoinette.
  • Last, but surely not least:  a set of vintage boudoir organizers in pretty french blue quilted silk, unopened.  (I may have to be selfish, ladies.)

A day well spent and I met some wonderful people along the way.  Not to mention my darling husband had wine, Shrimp Mozambique over pasta & fresh bread waiting for me...talk about spoil(s)!
