Give John Galliano a run for his money with this chic 50's era blue muted floral water-color a-line tea dress. It's explosive abstracted floral print saves it from being a little too precious & retro while it's figure defining bodice is sure to keep heads turning.
And just as everyone is finally looking back at Betsey Johnson's archives, including the boisterous designer herself, comes this sweet early 80's era white bolero that is covered with crisp black Swiss dots. It's sports inspired sweatshirt composition ensures comfort & ease while helping you look your best.
We've been feeling Ralph Lauren's classic sophistication again for some time now and his 70's era preppy navy-blue double breasted blazer with it's gold metallic threaded crest and sharp cut just seems so right for right now.
Another score from early 80's Betsey Johnson, another testament to her non-stop boundless creativity. This piece quietly hits so many of today's biggest trends we just couldn't resist. Edwardiana, the 80's, the prominent shoulder, it's all here in this unbelievably easy to wear knock-em-dead number.
All items will be available at VagaBondnyc.com Jan. 3rd 2010

I’ve been raiding my closets, my storage bins and even my living room décor these past couple weeks in the hope that I can get some bills paid off (new car brakes SUCK!). So while I’m sad to see a few of these things go, I’m sure some of you out there will be happy to see them available for sale Here’s a brief sampling of what I have up for auction on eBay as well as available directly from my store.

I thought I would try a little something different. In the vein of an auction, every Monday I will offer an item from my store and allow everyone to bid on it. Similar to a silent auction or ebay, the item will be listed with full description and the highest bidder at the end of 6 days will be the winner. All items will have a starting bid, some may have a reserve price. This is an experiment, one I hope will work!
Current bid: $25.00
Shipping cost: $5.00 to Canada & USA. $9 everywhere else.
Vintage Johnathan Logan cotton floral print dress, c. 1950s. V-front and V-back with empire waist and button detail on front. Cap sleeves, back zipper and no pockets. Unlined and in excellent condition with one faint scuff mark on the bottom of the skirt at the back.
Length 42" (107cm)
Bust 36" (91.5cm)
Waist 24" (61cm)

The inner band is spotless. This hat has never been worn! The circumference is approximately 7” x 8”.
The cut of the hat is asymmetrical so when worn it is not just a box sitting there. It rests on the side with flowing line. The Floret is positioned on the right of your brow.
