Timeless Vintage Vixen

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.

    I have been in love with this dress since February, and is one of the bases of my dress that I’m getting made…

    Oh we have such similar taste, Ms Polka! I posted about these glamorous designs for hostess dresses – can’t you imagine swanning around hosting the perfect dinner party in one of these elegant gowns? Gorgeous x

    I have been watching Timeless Vintage Vixen for years! Ever since they had a store on Ebay….long before Etsy was around. I LOVE LOVE LOVE their fabulous dresses and wish that I could find the dresses they do. I too dream of who once wore the dress and who will wear it again. Sigh…. :o)

    I actually purchased my dream dress for my December wedding from Timeless Vintage Vixen’s Etsy shop.(It is an amazing early ’60’s couture gown.) They were wonderful to deal with and were very thoughtful (even including a lollipop in my package). I cannot recommend them enough.

    Oh my gosh they are my FAVOURITES! I’ve been stalking them from a few years now, from when they first started on Ebay. I wish I lived in the 50s! Would LOVE to see more brides wearing dresses like these *sigh* 🙂
