Velvet Cave


One of my favourite things to search for on eBay is 'mod dress' - usually not with the intention of actually buying, but as more of a 'window shopping' exercise and a place to find inspiration for my next sewing project.

Well, I recently found myself scrolling through the search results, when a collection of stunning 60s/70s dresses passed before my eyes - complete with a beehived model and striking 60s makeup. I clicked through to 'See More Items' and discovered Velvet Cave Vintage - an eBay shop filled with all of my favourite things! (i.e. lots of retro dresses).

If I had the money I'd buy any of these dresses in an instant - and they would of course take pride of place in my wardrobe. I am aware that I say that about most of my clothes... but there is something super special about really cool old dresses. Of course, they would also be the perfect outfit choice for when I'm wailing along to the Shangri-La's when my flatmates are out...

All of these ones are on their eBay page at the moment - with about 2 days remaining until the auctions end!

Oh - and they also have a blog and a twitter :)

P.S. I know this sounds like a sponsored post - but I assure you it isn't! I just fell in love at first sight!

Love this - some serious Quadrophenia/Twiggy/Jean Shrimpton vibes going on! I'd love to buy one of the dresses... oh, I'll probably end up lusting after them all :)
