precious vintage

Deep into the 'old' section of my mothers closet lies the  hidden - vintage - wonders! For example, old bridesmaids dresses, old jewelry she inherited from my great-grandmother, hats, gloves and... a beautiful 'foil look' gold dress with tiny black polka dots embroidered into the fragile material. This incredible vintage dress was made by the brand EWALDO, which was like the Alex Perry of my mothers time, well, sort of. It dates back to the 80's, when gold and black were in. 

This is the dress. It has a sweetheart neckline, rouched sleeves and black netting under the skirt to give it 'ooomph'. 

There was alot of these kind of dresses in the 80's. This is an example of a Studibaker Hawk dress. It has be embroidered with gold sequins.
