Vintage bespoke dresses in pristine quality are hard to find. If one is lucky enough to find one, please realize you have a treasure in your hands. Vintage bespoke dresses are the complete opposite of fast fashion.
Dresses that are made to order, by a nearby dressmaker, require fittings sessions. As well, they require time to choose fabrics and time for the seamstress to hand sew both the garment, bead work and pleating.

When decades of old and new, vintage and modern collide, the end result can be dramatic. Does the above photo impart that vibe? Certainly, I hope so.

Looking serene I share this with you now, as I have been in quiet mode. Waiting for news of my FIL’s status as he is in critical care fighting, and the odds are quite against him.
Time has changed my face a bit, but I am okay with that. This is two years old. I am just glad that I can still wear this dress .
Oh my! I don’t now want to drag you down. From prior posts, and happier times, I share some shots of me in blue.
The cycles of life go round and round. I feel blue, but also I feel grateful .
I have enjoyed so much time with my loved ones. No-one lives forever, and it is that singular fact that makes life so precious. Lets appreciate each and every day we spend IRL with loved ones!
