Here Comes the Bride

18 Sep

More and more brides are turning to vintage dresses to create a unique, one of a kind look that seems to be missing in the bridal industry. And why not? The appliques, beadwork, draping and lace are artworks in themselves. From bohemian hippie dresses perfect for a meadow or beach wedding, to the more formal dresses complete with train and veil, you will always find a wedding gown perfect for the mood of your affair on Etsy. Here at Secondhand Addiction, we have several beauties to choose from and here is our most recent posting.

Vintage Wedding

8 Jun

Tomorrow Marion and I will be photographing and posting again after a totally successful trip to Vegas. Second Hand Addiction followers get ready! We were tempted to shop in Vegas but Marion quickly reminded me of our quite full storage unit and the giant rack of clothing in her office that I swear has begun reproducing on its own.

We have some Vintage wedding treats such as a fun micro Gunne Sax and a maxi crepe lined cotton venise lace gown. The latter was created for a busty gal. If you are looking for something different check back soon for this dress. It is amazing 50’s vintage in excellent condition, empire waist and with the cutest little sweep!

Those pics look awesome, Molly!! I don’t have pictures yet, but holy crap! I went to a yard sale this past Saturday and picked up 16 vintage aprons that were handmade by the mother of the hostess of the sale. Her mom used to sew for a living and started making aprons to sell and had tons of them. Unfortunately she developed arthritis and can’t sew anymore. They were looking for a little extra money and decided to sell them. I kept a couple to add to my collection, but will be listing the rest. Can’t wait.

Check out this secretary blouse that Molly altered. Pussy bow, gathered sleeves. So cute!
