Time for another vintage outfit I wore through out my “Cover me in stardust” E.P live videos……….…………
This is from the “Into the night” video:
This glamourous satin nude dress was quite possibly once a night dress! A delicate piece with no labels, it may well be handmade. Cut on the bias with the bust detailing, it has a lovely 1930’s feel to it.
I gathered many fine vintage pieces on Ebay (before the vintage hipster boom made it impossible to find a bargain anymore!) but I found this in a second hand shop on Blackstock Road in Finsbury Park a few years ago. I was very pleased!
The best places to search now for unique and not over-priced items I find, are in vintage and second hand shops across the Midlands and north England. But you will need a very keen eye.
I’m a sucker for a headpiece and enjoy ‘making’ my own but this black feathery, silver glittery peacock was found in a hobbies and craft shop in Somerset. I think he may have been an intended christmas decoration, but I offered him a life in the performing arts and he ran with it!
Topped off with little lace gloves (although not vintage lace this time), I enjoyed putting this one together very much.
