The ebay merchants have all geared up for the holidays and have listed party dress after party dress. A search for "50s party dress " found 184 items, a search for "1950s party dress" found 49 more. Now, if I only had a party to go to (and if I didn't already have a closet full of rarely-worn party clothes) I'd be shopping like a crazy person.
All four of these dresses come from one seller, Little*Things Dolls and Clothes. She has quite a spectacular collection of classic 50s dresses. The first two pictured here caught my attention because I haven't shaken my recent orange obsession, and the fact that pumpkin-pie day is coming up isn't helping any. The third dress, which is by Emma Domb (as is the first), caught my eye because I love the big copper-colored skirt. I picked the pink dress just to show that I could drag myself away (if not far) from orange, and because it's Guy LaRoche, made in France, bust 36, and the only bid so far is for $34.99. Really, size 6 ladies (and gentlemen, as the case may be) can you afford NOT to bid on it?
