oh my. i seriously love everything in the shop, but if i HAD to choose just one, it'd be the floral playsuit. i'd layer a kelly green skirt overtop and add a straw hat for daytime, and a cream chiffon skirt for going out at night. it's beautiful!

I've never entered one of these before so I'm not really sure if I'm doing this right but I love custard heart vintage.. she just has the loveliest stuff. It was so hard to chose.. I love all the little sixties dresses and those cream boots are just too cute but I think I'll go all festive and say that it would have to be that amazing tea rose party dress that I'd wear for my boyfriends birthday with a little antique diamonte bag and some nude heels with bows on too and a simple long chain..
Thanks for the amazing offer!

I would pick this:
I've recently become slightly obsessed with 1940s and 50s clothes from Hawaii, so this would be perfect for summer! And it's so awesome that I'd only need to add my old saddle shoes to style it.

Even though summer's approaching, I have quite a soft spot for the coral 1960s shetland cardigan. I would wear it with high-waisted cigarette jeans, a white cotton peter-pan collar blouse, black wingtip oxfords and a navy scarf tied like a turban.
Thank you for the opportunity!

Yay thanks for making it international! She has such a great collection. My favourite item is the 1950s vintage Madeira Embroidered party dress... it's so pretty! I would style it with my wittner bow high heels, and an ivory angora cardigan.


Stacey said...

The 1960s vintage Wedgewood Blue cotton pique day shift is just too cute! I dunno if it would fit since it looks big! But I would wear it with a big straw hat [just got one in white!] and tan espadrilles.

How adorable!

Completely enamoured with Custard Heart Vintage! 1.) I adore the 1960's Persian Blue cocktail dress. 2.)I would wear it in an Audrey-esque hairdo, chic black flats (with little bows on them), elegant pearls, and bright red lipstick.


Lots of Love,
p.s. Ashley, thank you for your lovely, inspiring photos ;) I can't get enough of them!

Jordan said...

All of the dresses in her shop are so gorgeous! My absolute favorite would have to be the Mikado Leaf abstract print day dress, to bring some fall colors into the spring. The dress really stands out on its own, so I would wear it with some simple nude flats, and a brown straw hat. What a great giveaway!

Jordan said... Forgot to ad that to my last comment.

Ameline said...

Oh, definitely the 1970s vintage Baby Blue cotton twill belted skirt!! Love the colour!! It would look perfect with a flowy white top and oxford flats. And maybe a straw hat for added summer zing!


Unknown said...

Aaaargh, I can't choose, so many lovely things, but I think I like the Denim Floral Twofer cotton day dress the best.
In summer I would wear it with cute sandals, a tote bag and a straw hat.
In winter I would wear it with a burgundy cardigan, tights and boots.

Pen Pal said...

so hard to choose! I love the gingham trim cotton trim pique dress (so perfect for summer picnics!). I would wear it with my sweet peep toed flats.

so many cute things, but i think i would go with the Belle France Spring dress, and pair it with a thick black belt, blue or green tights and my favorite mary janes. the sleeves and fancy collar are so sweet, i don't think it would need any other accessories, so i would just carry a big floral embroidered tapestry bag-i love mixing florals :)

Claire said...

I absolutely love the 1980s vintage Polka Dot cotton sailor collar day dress. It is actually the most perfect dress for a day at the beach or a picnic in the park (which I'm planning to do often!)

asta viktoria said...

One of my favorites is the 1960s vintage Gabar New York one piece playsuit, it's so beautiful! Therefore I would only wear it with bare legs and feet, and loose hair. I can easily imagine it. Me in the playsuit, the sun at my skin and the wind in my hair.
I really enjoy following you, keep up the good work.


Gienah Ghurab said...

I love green, so I think the 1960s vintage Coco California organza party dress is ADORABLE, but it's too small for me to wear!

My mind is self combusting at the variety of stunning vintage items you have on offer ! :O but alas I have to calm my weary heart down to write the rest of the comment :P

If I was forced at knife point I would choose the 1950s vintage Ice Blue pleated day dress ...

I would cinch the little beauty in with a think black velvet belt around my waist and some dainty white lace gloves. For shoes I would wear some twee black patent mary janes and perhaps some little white socks to add to the quaintness of the dress. I would my hair in a french plait with cream ribbon and finally a string of pearls around my neck to accentuate the collar.

and then I would proceed to gleefully hop through the busy street showing of my 'new' dress to anyone ranging from old age pensioners to new born babies :3

June 1st is my birthday! I am swooning over the 1950s vintage Madeira Embroidered party dress. I would wear it to a fancy birthday party I might just have to have for myself if I win!

Dulcie said...

Eek I'm so happy you're doing a giveaway with Custard Heart because you are exactly the sort of girl I can picture every item in her shop on. In fact, I currently have about five pieces from Custard Heart vintage in my Etsy saved favourites but there's a 1950s rick rack jacket that I just think is so cool and would absolutely love. Would look pretty with high-waisted tapered trousers or over a fitted grey 'office' type shift dress. So hope I win! xxx

Becci said...

i love the daffodil yellow dress, such a happy dress it would brighten up any day! I would style it would my old lady sandles, a vintage sun hat and simple yellow-letting the colour do the talking! x
