Etsy Love

I have recently made a very exciting Etsy purchase which I can't wait to share with you.

Mr N being the most generous, sweet and frankly all round damn gorgeous bloke that he is gave me a generous budget to buy some dresses for some upcoming weddings n stuff I was moaning I had nothing to wear for.  While scouring the net for to see what lovelies were out there, I came across some absolute corkers on Etsy.  I thought I would share some here as I cannot get them out of my head!

Found here
This Edwardian mourning gown made my heart skip a beat

Found here

I adore vintage lace.  I would wear this dress to go shopping, to drop my daughter off at school, I'd even wear it in bed.  I'd never take it off.  I'd swirl around in it all day and pretend to be a faerie.

It reminds me a bit of something Marla Singer would wear

Found here

I thought this 1940's dress would look good embellished with a giant corsage brooch.  Shame I can't do victory rolls.

Found here
More vintage lace.  See above

Found here

 Yeh, bit of a pattern emerging here 


Isn't this a lovely shade?  This reminds me of something Courtney Love would have worn in the early 90's.  She'd probably have torn strips off of it first though I think.

As you can probably tell, I have a bit of a thing for vintage lace.

I'm very happy with my eventual choices but oh, I could have bought everything here!  My dress collection would be the envy of the world.

Please can someone give these beautiful gowns a good home and make them come to life again.  Make sure you send me photos!


  1. Ooh I love all the vintage lace. I think us ex-goths have a thing about textures and trimmings and I put it down to wearing all black for years. When I only wore black and purple, I had to look for lace, velvet, silk etc to make the black interesting. Like you I now let my inner colourful person out but my heart is still black-lol. xx

  2. ARGGGGGGGH!!! So.many.beautiful.frocks.........torture!!
    Can't wait to see what you scored!!! EEEK!

  3. Oh, how I love vintage lace too! That second frock doesn't only speak to sings! lol Thanks for sharing these lovely I have some new vintage shoppes to visit! Can't wait to see the eventual choices. XO

  4. There is nothing prettier then vintage lace!!! Etsy could send any gal broke. xx

  5. Those dresses are absolutely amazing! The mourning gown is fascinating. I think Courtney Love got the rips by falling down. ;)

  6. buy buy buy buy buy! You need at least one of those dresses, you can't leave them, I think one of the pink lace ones would be amazing and you'd get the most use out of them! xxx

    1. oh wow especially the black edwardian dress is to die for!! i definitely would by this, so beautiful! and the 4th one is really fabulous too, well also the it´s very hard to decide but i think with one of this lace dresses you never can be wrong!
