Vintage 50s Strapless Robins Egg Blue Tulle Party/Prom
Posted at 9:33 pm by 1909ventilo, on May 2, 2016
My mom’s prom dress was a taffeta & tulle Strapless 1950’s stunner. My dad was dressed in a black tuxedo, he whisked her away to the senior prom in his 55 Chevy. I’m sure there was dancing and laughing and some kissing! The picture of them so happy has always stayed with me. This is my daughter Juliette, she’s wearing a robin egg blue tulle original. I mostly collect these wonderful dresses for my photography but occasionally I sell them on OLA.com. Every dress is unique, the fading, the flowers, velvet sashes, ruffles and cinched waists. Decorating with vintage prom is the new rage, because who doesn’t want one of these dresses hanging in their boudoir.

thanks for reading my blog.
I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love
