50's Dresses -Can't Get Enough

There's something just so flattering about the shape of dresses from the 1950's.  The gathered skirts that seem to fall at the perfect junction just below the knee to be flattering to the leg, the fitted waist (of course, body wear is a must underneath!) and the often shoulder widening design of the shoulders & sleeves.  All of these features accent what sets us apart from men -our hour-glass figures.
The above example in crisp summer cotton is available from allen company inc .

Then, there's the "Wiggle Dress" -ooo la laaa!  This one is an evening style in bronze organza with moss green embroidery overlay -gorgeous!  Available from Curatorial Vintage .

Vonlenska Vintage is offering this amazingly turquoise vintage 50's dress -is that colour too much or what?!  There's something just so geek-chic about this presentation, I can so imagine a great pair of cats eyes glasses with this.

And finally, the classic 50's strapless party dress.  This one is just a vision!   This confection is available from one of my favourite sellers, Timeless Vixen Vintage in Beverly Hills California -don't know how they get their hands on so many amazing evening dresses from the 1870's to the 1970's -many are museum quality items in my humble opinion- I would die to see their showroom one day!
