New stock arriving thick & fast

Well I've only been open a couple of weeks and people are bringing boxes of vintage treasures through my door, so far there's been this fabulous bespoke made vintage 1950s 3 piece tweed suit in a brown windowpane check with a hint of yellow  and copper lining. It's in a good size too at 44-46" chest and 32" inside leg, the trouser waist is 40" and along with the jacket have been let out at some point in their history. The suit is dated 1954.

 

 
 The same people brought in a stash of 1950s and 60s cocktail dresses and evening gowns, below is a fabulous lime green silk number.

Another silk and such a classic style this is a timeless full length evening gown. In the most beautiful copper silk with gold and ivory bands running horizontally, I love it.

Below is a wild and colourful Peter Barron 1960s dress, made from Tricel fabric which is usually used for silky cravats. This dress is lightweight and slinky with the most intense orange, green, yellow and black geometric print with a peter pan collar and little attached neck tie detail.
  

Below is a polyester fabric pink floral evening maxi dress with a pretty green velvet attached ribbon around the empire line. It's a true Abigail's party classic with double breasted opening and popper closures. Fab.

Here's the copper dress again teamed with a luxurious vintage squirrel fur coat, which is ever so elegant with its bell sleeves, super posh copper colour lining which has been hand embroidered with the lady's initials and the wonderful large collar.
