This post is about a fabulous, original 1960’s dress set from The Dress Form, a vintage clothing online store, based in Canada! They have such beautiful things, all unique, carrying a special history… I don’t own a lot of true vintage, but I intend to change that, because I love the feeling of wearing something that was pre loved and was made in the actual era that I admire so much! This dress and bolero reminded me of Joan from Mad Men, whose style I adore. I also chose a pair of see through gloves and a sparkly brooch to go with it…
The dress luckily fits like a glove, thanks to the accurate measurements on the site. It can be a bit tricky to order vintage clothing online, because sizing was different back then and the clothes were not stretchy. But at The Dress Form you can find actual measurements of the garments, and advice that will help you understand something will fit you or not. And there are so many beautiful things to chose from, clothing and accessories that you can combine to create the perfect outfit for you!
By the way I chose the perfect place for this photoshoot, which is a recently renovated Bar – Coffee place in Athens, called Kika. The furniture is all vintage, from the 1950’s and 1960’s, and everything is carefully designed to create the perfect retro atmosphere!
