Dream Dresses

{photo via 100 Layer Cake}

This photo just kills me. If there is one time period or era of fashion that I'm completely obsessed with, it's the 1920's. I often prowl vintage clothing sites, dreaming of one day owning a real, honest-to-god flapper dress -- complete with intricate beading, a perfect drop-waist, and dreamy delicate layers. I would cheerfully take any one of these...

Is there a particular era that you are smitten by? What is your dream dress??

**If you like vintage fashion as much as me, you should take a peek at the online vintage clothing boutique, Vintage Textiles.

I love, love the '20s of course but I'm rather partial to the Edawrdian Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau beautiful just out of corsets (maybe not quite) dresses a decade or so earlier. Poirot was it? A pretty New Lok A line Dior dress would be nice too! Maybe anything Grace kelly in To Catch a thief or Rear Window?

These are beautiful - what a line up!

Those dresses are too gorgeous. Why must you torture us? Why, I say! And the photo in itself is pure perfection.

Love the new layout, and I think I know why you're having problems with the header. It seems like when you've chosen a new layout, the standard for the standard size of the header has also changed, causing the old header to lose its proportions. To fix it I suppose you'll have to create a new header (which will fit the new "header-standard"), or do it with css (if you can do this with Blogspot - one of the reasons I like wordpress soooo much better!).

I'm actually working on a new layout myself, thank you for the inspiration!
