I have been toying with the idea of wearing a vintage gown because I love the notion of wearing something that another woman wore with such excitement. As if this inanimate object gets even more and more happier, blessed, beautiful with each person wearing it. Other reasons why to buy a vintage gown: knowing that there will not be hundreds of brides wearing your dress and the ability to choose from a wide variety of styles (from Victorian to Edwardian to Deco to Flapper).
The Frock, an online vintage dress boutique, is a fun place to start “thinking” about a vintage dress. They have a great buyer so it is easy to explore well designed dresses and get your first exposure to the different decades.
A little pricey (they do offer layaway!) but if you are interested in a truly authentic vintage gown by a well known designer this is your place!
