Guest Pick: Gorgeous Vintage From Every Decade

Queens of Vintage Part 2

Averarado Bessi was a former designer for Emilio Pucci, hence the familiar pattern on this dress. The later 60s also had the influence of the hippie style and this couture dress incorporates boho flavors while keeping the dress very elegant. Probably worn by a well-heeled lady, I was immediately taken with the soft, buttery fabric and silk lining. This must feel incredible on the skin!

This necklace is made from Bohemian crystals and it was the size of the pendant that struck me. 7 cm in diameter, this large style pendant was becoming very popular in the 70s. Simple but striking, the shades of the crystals are very typical of the 70s. I can see this on a fabulous gown.

1980s - Retro Charles Glueck Of New York Sequined Top

The early 80s was defined by shiny workout wear and gym enthusiasts. I love this top as it seems to bring in the 80s covered in sequins, but maintains the simpler lines that are required for ease of movement. This top has yet to be disturbed by the latter part of the 80s and the big power suits with door crashing shoulder pads.
