What a long, cold winter it has been! Winter came early, hit hard and stayed far too long. That chic puffer coat you lusted for and the designer cashmere or alpaca that you splurged on have gone from treasured new favorites to reviled necessities. Finally… it is time to shed those many layers and lighten up. Nothing says spring like a light or brightly colored new dress. Whether your inclination is to reach for pastels or primary brights, your mood and look will benefit instantly.
Some vintage styles are classics that work for many body types. The 1960s A-line silhouette is timeless and ageless, when executed in a quality textile with fine tailoring. Whether you opt for a modern rendition, or choose a high quality vintage piece, these dresses are wonderful additions to your permanent wardrobe. The 1950s shirtwaist style is a favorite of trendy Gen-Xers, who style the dresses with imagination and flair.
Some of the dresses shown below are for sale at the OgoVintage etsy shop or OgoVintage ebay store. Some have been sold and some have not yet been listed. If one in particular speaks to you, please email OGO for assistance.
So… welcome spring, buy some fresh cut flowers, plant some kitchen herbs, meet a friend for an al fresco dinner or drinks, take the dog on a long stroll, pack up your winter wardrobe for another year and treat yourself to a pretty springtime frock!
