The Perfect Dress For The Perfect Occasion!


I've never been one to wear dresses, but my niece is getting married this September and I'd love to wear one. I've been a fan of vintage clothing for years. I can't fit into the ones I like right now, but I'm working on it. I've been in training for about a month now and by September, I should be able to fit into something pretty!

I'm not sure I'll ever be able to fit into any of these dresses, but it's something to work for! I'll at least have the jewelry to accessorize with! See my vintage jewelry collection here!

Below are some vintage dresses that I would love to own!

One of my favorites! Grace Kelly in Rear Window! Beautiful dress!

I love these! Sometimes I think I was meant to be born in the 40s or 50s!

tirelesstraveler, I know she had someone dress her on set, but she had her own sense of style, too! Thanks for the comment!

Loved Grace Kelly in "Rear Window". She was so beautiful; her clothing was always tasteful and flattering. Why don't women want lovely clothing like these lovely dresses.
