If you follow me on Instagram then you may remember this green tinsel number from a few weeks ago. 1960's perfection. I snapped it up and and now some lucky lady can make this the holiday party dress of her dreams! Sadly it was too small on me, otherwise I would be keeping it forever and ever. Fortunately I've at least had the pleasure of admiring it on my wall for a few days, but this beauty is ready for some festivities. It's available to purchase here!

It's been some time since I did a Fancy Friends feature (ahem), but now felt like the ideal time for part four featuring none other than the dreamboat Allegra. She and I met in the most modern of ways (through the internet, of course!) but there is absolutely nothing modern about her dreamy apartment, which is just around the corner from my own. It's filled to the brim with objects both beautiful and slightly spooky, a perfect mix that is imbued with personality. Allegra lives with two funny cats named Violet (who happily posed for photos) and Rupert (who hid the entire time) and works at a thrift store where she is constantly finding covetable bits and bobs for her place. She also studies fashion design and I look forward to the day when she will create all kinds of perfectly witchy and vintage-inspired costumes that will one day become vintage treasures in their own right.

True to my word I finally did a major closet purge, which resulted in a giant pile of over 70 items of clothing on my floor. I started listing things in the shop and there are many more to come. But do hurry and take a peek now, because otherwise I'm afraid my cat will make a permanent home on that pile! You will find a few of my favorite lace dresses, several gorgeous silk blouses, and other things I'm sad to give up. But it's time.
Visit the Fancy Fine Vintage shop!

Vintage dresses are always taking over my apartment, hanging from every available door, closet, nook and cranny. I'm planning on doing a bit of overdue wardrobe purging this weekend and selling a few choice pieces on Etsy in the upcoming weeks, so look out for those soon!
