There’s an Etsy store I have been particularly enamoured with of late, I head there when I want to dream, when I’m looking for pretty things and when I want to indulge in the fantasties of yesteryear.
Timeless Vintage Vixen is an Etsy store based out of Beverley Hills. Filled to the absolute brim with vintage gowns of every era, the store always has something new so you can be sure a bride marrying next week won’t be wearing the same thing!
But really that isn’t why I love it- I love the way I can envisage one of these gowns on a bride, I envisage a story. A bride carrying balloons and a bouquet of brilliant colours wearing a watermelon coloured ballgown ( I want to go to THAT wedding!) The bride who wants pin curls and elbow length gloves wearing the 1920s style number and serving martinis and decadent chocolate desserts, the one who wants to serve cupcakes and fairyfloss and wear a pink pair of shoes? She’d wear the pink sash fifties style.
That’s the thing about vintage wedding gowns- each one has a story and is waiting for the next one to be told.
