Posh Girl Vintage.com
I found this amazzing vintage website! It seems like each one I find I fall in love with even more. Posh Girl Vintage has everything from clothing, jewelry, kids clothing, mens clothing, shoes to specifics like proms dresses and LBD's. The best part about it is that you can search for items by era. Dates go all the way back to the 1900's. If there's a specific handbag from the 20's you're looking for, or maybe a pair of shoes from the 80's, it could be at your fingertips~!
I found this 1960's Baby Doll Dress under "Little Black Dress" section. This baby doll dress could have been one of the very firsts! It is dated back to when baby doll dresses were first introduced and became popular. Baby Doll dresses were popularized by the 1956 movie Baby Doll starring Carroll Baker. Some styles are actually very similar to what is worn by baby dolls in the form of infants. The gown is short enough for diapers to be easily changed. Obviously this dress has come a long way and more than just babies are sporting it! The style evolved into a well made dress that is sometimes only intended for lingerie while other styles are made for day dresses.
Another great find I found were these rare 1940's platform heels. These are in great condition, adorned by a metallic rope like material. (Left) These 1940's Pink Basket platform heels on the right (Hipsterchic.com) are a similar shoe in concept. It's fun to see how styles can change and or stay similar to when they were first introduced. I think I like the vintage platforms better =)
