…”a 1950’s vintage red lace dress…mid century classic! It doesn’t get any more classic than this gorgeous vintage dress. Just stunning and the condition is amazing. Looks never worn. The buttons are heavy metal balls of rhinestones, the belt is original and has no wear at all. The lace is a classic lipstick red…not orange or any other shade of red…just classic red. Full skirt, red taffeta liner, side metal zipper”…

Which would you choose?

Ok, guys, you really need to check out Posh Girl Vintage…vintage wedding dresses, cocktail dresses, accessories, handbags, lingerie…so much fun to browse!

By the way, this dress reminds me of one of my favorite posts by Meg Perotti…check it out here…you’ll love it…

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Don’t forget to send me your business card if you would like it added to the Working Designer Wednesday post next week…



  1. I just might dare! And I’d definitely choose to carry #3. The mono-botanical bouquet gives the eye a focal point right in the center of the dress. From there the eye can radiate out and fully take in and enjoy all the details. That dress is a great find!

    I’d go with #1 – if we are going with color let’s go all the way!

  3. Jenny N says:

    I say #1 as well. So fun.

  4. Janet says:

    #1 it’s the only bouquet that is fun enough to hold it’s own against that red dress. #2 is too elegant. #3 is too subdued.

  5. Anonymous says:

    I love #1, but #2 is soooooooooooooooooooooo fab!!!

  6. Denise says:

    #1 is punchy and sassy enough for that dress. Though I am a sucker for peonies!

  7. Liz says:

    I vote for #1 as well! There’s just something about anenomies and [poppies, right?] that remind me of vintage china or something… 🙂
