New at Couture Allure - Vintage Designer Dresses

This week, I've been listing a lot of gorgeous new things at Couture Allure, including the following pieces:

This dress makes my heart stop. It's a true rare find by Rosalie Macrini. This 1950's party dress is fashioned in irridescent silk taffeta with dramatic draping and swirls.

Need a little drama in your life? How about this vintage 1960's evening gown by Bill Blass? The ostrich feathers at the hem are dyed to match the colors of the velveteen print of the gown.

These coat and dress sets fly out the door whenever we find them, so don't hesitate if you like this one. Chester Weinberg designed this vintage 1960's set in wool brocade and wool knit. The brocade print of the coat is outstanding!

I just love the kooky embroidery on this vintage 60's dress, and I know you will too. Animals are embroidered in a Tree of Life design on avocado green wool.

Pauline Trigere was known for using unusual details in her designs. This vintage 70's evening gown has an attached belt with a huge hammered brass buckle.

From the 1980's, this emerald green suede jacket by Yves St. Laurent Rive Gauche closes with the most exquisite jeweled buttons. This suede is butter soft, like velvet!

You'll find lots more new listings at Couture Allure this week! Here's a link to our What's New section of the website. Enjoy!

Love the pink strapless dress! Great placement of the flower in the drape of the skirt. So pretty!
