"I've no idea when I'm going to wear it, the girl replied calmly. I only knew that I had to have it. Once I tried it on, well...She shrugged. The dress claimed me." ~ Isabel Wolff, 'A Vintage Affair'
Yes, it's that time of year again. We'll be having our Vintage Dress sale on October 27th, from 10am to 7pm at our Dalhousie location! You'll find dresses from the 40's, 50's, and 60's for almost any occasion. Christmas? Check. Reunion? Check. Wedding? Check. Sitting on a porch reading? Check. Drinking brandy somewhere between 4 and 6pm in your kitchen? Check and check. All this to say, it's going to be fun.
Katie and Regine travel far and wide to seek out these beautiful dresses and gowns, to shift our focus from the busy modern lives we all lead, back to a simpler time when fashion meant real lines, real curves, real woman. Dare I say that Victoire strives to do this in everything we do...
So do it, come get lost, let a dress claim you because of its fabric, a colour, a fit you've never experienced, or simply because you want something that expresses the deepest and oldest parts of your fashionista self. See you there!
