Here Comes Summer!

Along with the recent additions of 50s and 60s summer dresses (some of which have already flown off the rails!), we add this lovely 1950s raffia handbag http://www.stardustyears.com/product/1950s-raffia-handbag/

This iconic vintage summer handbag is definitely worth a closer look!

If you’re looking for a handbag for Goodwood, a wedding or just for fun, email me karen@stardustyears.com or pop into the shop where we have oodles more stock than I can load onto our website!

New Items

New items have been brought into the shop over the last few weeks but whenever I’ve been about to press Publish to add them to the website, a customer has bought them!  However, I have just added two new stock items to the website this afternoon.  One is a lovely light pink summer dress in a size similar to a UK size 14 1960s Day Dress and a gorgeous pair of 1940s Utility Shoes

1940s and 1950s Vintage

1940s and 1950s Vintage. In between our Winchester Fashion Week event last week and our TLC Sale next weekend, I have found time to add three pieces from our new vintage summer stock items!  We have lots more in our Winchester shop but, if you can’t get there, I hope you enjoy these 3 beauties!

A late 1940s two-piece suit in pale lilac. 

A beautifully-tailored 1940s skirt and top with gorgeous button detail. I love this item but it’s not in my size.  I’m not sure of the fabric but I think it’s either a linen or a linen mix. A real find! Superb for Spring and Summer.

I have also added two 1950s dresses, one looks like it might have stepped out of a 1950s Douglas Sirk film – a gorgeous vintage dress with blue lace overlay. The other is a day dress in a fabulous Fifties summer dress; a stunning cotton print from Blanes.

Any of these three gorgeous original vintage pieces would be ideal for any occasion and if you’re going to Goodwood Revival, you will definitely want to take a closer look!

Vintage at Winchester Fashion Week 2018

Each year, we like to provide something a little different at the Winchester Fashion Week and this year is no exception. In collaboration with Wessex Film and Video Archive, we’ll be taking a fun look at the 1950s as well as showcasing some of our new, original Fifties’ pieces for the summer. So why not come and join us for a glass of something fizzy and enjoy some true vintage at Winchester Fashion Week 2018! The event is free but booking is essential.
