New at Couture Allure - Vintage Dresses and Suits

New this week at Couture Allure - lots of shimmering vintage gold.

We love this vintage 60's cocktail dress with matching coat in gold brocade - and it's a generous larger size!
Another 1960's dazzler, this time in a new, old stock silk suit with genuine mink fur cuffs.

Shimmering silver silk satin jacquard is fashioned into a late 1940's dinner suit with ruffles at the hip.

The perfect early 1960's prom dress in gold brocade and silk organza.

Calling Petula Clark! I found your 1960's cocktail dress in cream crepe with babydoll lace tent overlay!

Hand-corded lace and silk tulle are lined in rose pink taffeta in this elaborate 1950's evening dress that would also work for a wedding.

And don't forget our Steal of a Deal sale starts tomorrow!

Beautiful VINTAGE & Artisan dresses & jewelry

Hi Everyone! A message for you and I will can get to work..

I have returned from a trip to Brazil and PURCHASED the most beautiful handcrafted ARTISAN jewelry GEMSTONES Crystals & dresses and leather work..!

The handcrafted jewels are from an artist who resides in a town of Parintins in the Amazon region of Brazil

His work was unbelievable to me, his family uses beautifully mined crystals and gemstones leathers and brass and wearable art from day to night & even in the ocean the jewelery is gorgeous all natural

If you love unique you must own one of his works of art to wear

The dresses are created by hand from the gauze WE love.. that real gauzy breezy fabric that hippies lived in during the 60s and 70s and NOW ...

His one of a kind beautiful dresses are all whip stitched and artfully pieced together he also uses beads and seashells on the dresses each one is completely different

he is my favorite Hippie seller in Leblon & Ipanema Beach, I purchased most all he had and now only 2 left!!

They are spectacular!

much more to come each day .. any questions please email me and thank you for shopping & loving our boutique..

Cheers Angelina

Urban Warrior: Another Side of the 80's

The 80's has been heavily revisited time & time again for a major part of this past decade and it's always interesting to see what particular part of the era designers feel relevant for today. We at are of course pleased that younger designers like Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang have steered clear of corporate boardroom chic, of the floral frivolities of the decade, instead to channel a more stremlined if not aggressive vision of strength through darker downtown themes. We at Vnyc afterall, love our girls looking "downtown."

Channel your inner downtown maven with some of our own spot-on warrior finds, from Krizia's sequined contrast bodysuit to Gianni Versace's studded boyfriend blazer, when it comes to the 80's, V got you covered.

Pictured clockwise from far left:
80's Fishnet Racer Back Singlet, 80's Valentino Snake Print Silk Blouse, 80's Krizia Contrast Bodysuit, 80's Gianni Versace Studded Blazer, Moschino Card Print Pencil Skirt, 80's Resin Triangle Earrings... all availible at, where shipping is always free, everywhere!

Everyone Hits a Bump in the Road

and I hit mine on Memorial Day. For those of you who use my Pattern Dating pages, don't be alarmed if you go there and find them missing. I was asked to remove the date lists because they are supposedly copyrighted. How you can copyright public domain information, I don't know, but...........I decided to take the bump in the road as an adventure and restructure the come back soon and hopefully you will find bigger and better and much more accurate information than was on there. I would receive multiple emails every week telling me the lists were wrong so, perhaps it's a good thing to do my own research instead of trusting something just because it's "published".

Thanks to everyone who supports my pages and if you want to keep really up to date on what's happening daily, sign up to follow my Facebook page........

Since I'm digging in my files .... here's a bit of Eye Candy

and one really spectacular find that is available right now on eBay.
