Wallflower Vintage Presents: Vintage? Inspired?Sweet 1960s cotton drop waist dress.

I've got a monkey I need to get off my back - yeah, call it sour grapes, call me a purist (which I am definitely not). I never was one to jump on the bandwagon - other than the Webkinz craze, but that's neither here nor there.

So what's with Banana Republic (GAP) & Mad Men clothing designer Janie Bryant hooking up to create Mad Men inspired fashions? What's with the mainstream lining up to be the first to purchase sixties inspired fashions? At last count there are about a gizzilion vintage sites on the internet. Selling

The Real Deal.

One-Of-A-Kind vintage items: clothing, accessories, shoes. you name it. we got it.

Quality vintage garments: jewelry, millinery. yep, that too.

I get it, it's human nature - the dress Kate Middleton wore to Wimbledon sold out online in 30 minutes. Hate to break it to those who bought it - it will NOT turn you into a princess.

How about some of these looks instead of worrying about showing up at a function with the same dress?

Beautiful olive green dress from the 1960s.

What's your take?
