Buy This, Not That: Christian Dior

Christian Dior is such a haute label, you'd think vintage versions from this fashion house would be sky-high in price, right?

Not necessarily.

Here's a $9,800 lambskin coat by Dior featured in Vogue's December 2011 issue.

Now take a look at some of the offerings from Vintage Vixen -

Circa 1980 and a fraction of its original price!
We have it for $120.

On sale at a magnifique $37.50!

A haute power suit look with Dior insignia, only $36.

View all Dior labels and happy shopping, Vixens!

A Suit of Clothes

Once upon a time, a gentleman did not wear a suit. He wore instead “a suit of clothes”. This rather elegant phrase was abbreviated only with the rush and bustle of the Industrial Revolution. And beginning early in the 20th century, ladies borrowed the idea of a man’s suit for themselves.

The look was powerful, wonderfully sexy, and ever-fabulous. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few of the many beautiful suits and designer labels we’re to post in the next day or so:

Incredibly fine Lilli Ann, circa early 1950s.

A full view of Lilli Ann suit.


For a cougar on the prowl. This suit is all-silk and simply sumptuous.


A beautiful black cocktail suit by St John. Just add martini!

This update includes high-end labels like Chanel & Gucci, loads of St John and classic-to-kitsch business wear with many a “suit of clothes”. We have added links to these beauties. Click to view!

Girl Friday

After a usual week of steaming, linting, de-pilling and miscellaneous repairs, this desk needs a serious clearing off. Lynne's our order prep gal, and this is her corner of the Vintage Vixen workspace. TGIF!
