Michelle’s Etsy picks of the week …

Today it’s all about dresses – 1930s dresses to be specific, from some of my favourite Etsy sellers. Mid 30s is the era I love most but these dresses span the entire decade. If I was lucky enough to win the lotto (and if these dresses were in my size) – I would probably snap them all up!

As my friends know, I’m a big fan of vintage silk-velvet. There really seems to be no modern equivalent to it’s luxurious softness or the way it falls in a bias cut gown so I have included a beautiful burgundy example here. I also adore 30s knitted dresses and sets and I especially love the argyle sweater and skirt set that comes with a matching hat shown below from Top Tottie Vintage. So cute…but alas, too small for me.

All these dresses were currently for sale when I submitted this on Dec 11 so if you are interested in these items, just click on the pics to take you there. Enjoy, and thanks to all these wonderful sellers for always putting such quality vintage items in their stores.

Vintage that doesn’t fit me on Etsy…

A selection of things I… *sigh*  …won’t be buying from BadGirlVintage on Etsy.com, because they are too small. The black velvet dress is the only one that would fit me (36-28-38 if you’d like to keep an eye out for me!), but I swore to myself that I would stop buying black dresses, so I’m leaving it be…
