Shop(s) update

Ha, OK, so "DIY Week" may have been a bit of an overstatement ... I've been working on my latest project off and on for a few days now, and it's still not done! So I thought I'd highlight a few items from my Etsy and Instagram shops instead.




Etsy


Vintage kelly green silk Schrader dress | Sold
I was intrigued by the cut on this beautiful green silk dress — the wide belt almost gives a peplum effect at the back. And the pleats on the skirt behave so totally differently in silk than they would with any other fabric, giving the skirt a wonderful sense of drape and motion. I love the fact that this dress could be totally casual, with sandals, or be dressed up to look incredibly elegant.

Vintage chevron print midi | Sold
 I've commented a million times before that I can't resist a great print, and this skirt was no exception. It just screams 70s to me in the best possible way — the cut, the color palette, everything. The fabric is a wonderful heavy cotton that hangs beautifully. All you need with this one is a white blouse and a tan.

I totally hit the dress jackpot when I was shopping the other day — here are just a few of my finds:

Black crepe Ralph Lauren sheath dress | $29 shipped
This black Ralph Lauren dress is a real stunner. The fabric has the most terrific drape, and I love the keyhole neckline — totally elegant and classy. I paired it with these amazing heels from my Etsy shop (recently marked down to $10) for a very traditional look. If you don't already have a Little Black Dress, you can't go wrong with this one.

Adrianna Papell mod print shirt dress | $20 shipped
This was one of those dresses that took a little while to win me over. I associate Adrianna Papell designs with really over-the-top prints that just scream 80s. But, while this dress almost certainly is from the 80s, it has a great mod 1960s vibe to it, with the circle print and the matching belt. So I styled it with these great gold 60s heels, and my old faithful flower necklace.

Brown leaf-print sheath dress | $16 shipped
Not gonna lie, I was kind of hoping this one would fit me and I could keep it, but it's just a hair too big. This dress is a great example of why I don't usually look at labels when I'm shopping for myself. It is not a high-end label, but it is a great-looking dress, both on paper and in person. Any guesses as to the brand?

I am planning to do a big vintage post tomorrow night, featuring some items from my Etsy shop as well as a few things that haven't seen the light of day yet, so please check out my shop if you haven't already — I'm at @bonmarchecloset.

    1. Yeah, I was pretty stoked when I saw the label on the LBD! There is not a lot of "high-end" stuff in my local thrift shop so this was pretty much an anomaly :)
