Perk Up! Vintage Valentines

Hi Everyone,
And a Happy New Year from Ireland's to all vintage lovers out there!

To coincide with the upcoming Valentines weekend we have an amazing selection of romantically themed pieces in knockout shades of red AND are discounting some –
such as our 1950s red velvet bombshell dress – these dresses are not just for Valentines ladies, they’re perfect for any special occasion requiring a bit of glamour!

An example of our newly listed pieces include this Ruby Red 1950s LUCY party cocktail dress by L’aiglon. A truly stunning dress we think you’ll agree!

This little number has some great features which include a full skirt of red lace with a scalloped hem over a red satin lining and its original red belt with bow and large rhinestone cluster button.

Of course we can’t forget the LBD and this fabulous dress by Bernshaw ticks all the right boxes:

Timeless: Check Original:Check One of a kind Vintage designer piece: CHECK!

Bernshaw is a collectible designer label founded in 1945 and celebrities including Natasha Kaplinsky, Sophie Anderton, Victoria Beckham, Jodie Kidd, Caprice and Davina McCall amongst numerous other celebrities, have worn Bernshaw in the past!

Another beautiful addition is this 50s Cherry Red beauty with fitted bodice, nipped in waist and a softly pleated skirt- typical 50s shirtwaist style! And again a piece with gorgeous detailing which includes a notched collar, short cuffed sleeves and covered buttons which run the entire mid centre-finished by two beautiful textured buttons on the shoulder –so eye catching!

During 2009 Perk Up! will be offering monthly specials so be sure to visit – we will also be adding new pieces continuously so if there is something in particular you are looking for – it may be just around the corner!

In the meantime if you have any special requests or just want to drop us a line, please contact us!

All the Best,
