The Emma Domb Dress

This gown is a beauty, and completely deserving of her own post. I do boast a few fantastic American designers in my shop, but this dress is something I'd like to keep for my own future collection. Emma Domb, a San Francisco based dressmaking company that was active from the late 1930's through the 1970's, specialized in occasion and party dresses. Her dresses have a special appeal and run the gamut from highly stylized, to simple and understated. Some of her popular silhouettes have become quite coveted amongst vintage collectors, and with the durable materials and high quality construction, it is easy to see why. This 1950's/1960's wedding gown is extremely well made, in clean condition, and without tears or flaws. In a warm and radiant off-white, with scalloped lace trim and a tiered Watteau train, the dress is a simple and elegant connection to the distinguishable designs of yesteryear. It will be posted in the shop this week, in the meantime, please double click on any image to view an enlarged version of it.

What She Wore: Texture

Here's a new kind of post for this little bloggy: featurettes! My sister has a fantastic wardrobe, and I would be remiss, if I didn't snap up photos of her and share them with you. This weekend's Etsy update is certain to be all about texture, so I had to share her outfit. I hope you can make out the texture of her jacquard jacket, and the print on her dress. I love the lavender details, everything from the coat to the necklace.

Etsy Shop Update: Cocktail Dresses and Casual Frocks

Another shop update, and so soon! Today's post is everything from unique, beaded, cocktail dresses, to casual day dresses. It's party season, and with baby showers, bridal showers, and weddings to attend, I had to put up some spring and summer ready party dresses. But, in the spirit of music festival season (good weather brings around so many different things to celebrate!), here's a couple of fun ones, too!

Etsy Shop Update: Plaids and Pleats

Full of plaids, pleats, prim and proper cuts, this shop update (in addition to allowing me to exercise a bit of alliteration) is a small and cohesive bunch. I haven't yet told you about how much I love plaid, but I know that it will become apparent in time. I pretty much beeline to all things plaid, tartan or similarly chequered; and often, I love them so much I have a difficult time parting with what's in my personal collection.
