Old Dress, New Dress

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

I couldn’t come up with a catchy name for this post, but I liken it to those sections in fashion magazines that are “Real v. Steal,” only the comparison here is old v. new. How does an older dress translate to a newer dress? Here, primarily through the use of fabric and trimmings. The old version is a belted 1940’s dress being sold on eBay, with black piping, buttons, and belt. The new version is from Trashy Diva who created this “early 1940’s inspired dress” from a similar fabric to the old one, with black button and belt buckle detailing, giving it a similar feel to the vintage dress. Overall, the effect of both dresses is very cool and I’d love to see more of this color scheme on the dance floor.

Old Dress - 1940's

New Dress - 1940's-inspired
