Vintage Starlet is right!

Oh how I wish I had photos of the dress I put on layaway! I just bought a dress from Hollywood Regency Vintage and it is gorgeous! It is still on layaway so it will be a bit before I show photos, but wow. It is made of brown rayon crepe and has silver star shaped studs all over it. It firs PERFECTLY and has the original belt!

No I just need to find a pair of shoes to go with this gem! The brown isn't a normal brown that I could find matching shoes for, so I am going to have to figure out what color shoes go with it best. Plus a hat... I will need a hat too.

I like this dress because it can be worn as evening cocktail or fancy afternoon luncheon. Yay! I can't wait until it is paid off. Whoo hoo!!! Once it is mine mine... I will be taking photos! XOXOXO


  1. If it has silver studs on it could you wear silver shoes?
    It sounds amazing. I can't wait to see it!

  2. I thought of that too, but I am thinking that silver shoes may be too distracting to the dress. Once I get the dress in my possesion I'll look for shoes. I actually think that a navy might work well.

    I can't wait to show this dress. I am thinking about going into the store just to take a photo! Hehehehe.

  3. What kind of brown is it? I have a pair of mint 40s peep-toe platforms that are the colour of butterscotch. Suede, cut-outs over the toes, modern size 8 (I'm a size 6.5! Too big. :() - they need a good home.. for the right price, naturally!

  4. It looked stunningly perfect on you...and I knew the second I saw it that it was yours, dammit. ;-D The stars are gold, though; that is why I thought those gold 40s wedges would look fabulous with it. Don't you have a brown hat already? A pancake style, I thought?

    Once I get it steamed out it will look even better. We'll have to make another shoulder pad to match the existing one too. It's a lovely frock! I am VERY glad it is going to you and not anyone else! Xoxo

  5. Gold stars? Beautiful! There's nothing better than finding a vintage dress, trying it on, and knowing it was made for you only - even if it was a few years ago ;) It also makes me wonder what the lady (or ladies) who wore it were like.

    Can't wait to see pictures - You have the best taste in clothes!

  6. I always find brown and cream go hand in hand. P.S. Your blog is just too neat!
