In All Their Beauty: Dresses of the 1960's





Recently I came across a whole slew of 1960's dresses for the shop.  I own a number of beautiful pieces that I wear to events and what not.  To me, they are stunningly designed, drape elegantly on the body and there really is nothing like a 1960's dress today, unless you shop Dior Haute Couture.  My love for sewing further increases my appreciation for these dresses because I comprehend the hard work that goes into them, but yet the simplicity of the clean cuts, well thought out darts and crisp lines.




Furthermore, I am attracted to vintage dresses in general because I feel like I truly have a one of a kind piece.  I generally wear them to weddings, museum events or parties and I know for sure I will be the only woman in that dress, no doubt about it.  




While some insecure women fear being thought of as poor and unable to afford a new dress, I try to promote the opposite.  We chose to wear beautiful vintage dresses because they are unique and much better made.  I think most people in my circle know it is my style, and since I run a vintage shop they figure it is my love.  




In fact, at Evelyn's engagement party, an old friend came to me and said, "Sarah you're looking great, I'm presuming you're wearing vintage?" When I answered "Of course!" He responded with a quick nod and said "Lady Go Lightly at her finest."  It made my day/evening/month/year.




Enjoy the beautiful new finds that are mostly all still available at Lady Go Lightly Vintage.
