There has been great excitement at Vintiquery HQ this week, as we launched our first online collection in our eBay store.
We believe that what people wear and surround themselves with in their home should totally reflect their character, taste and style. For some people that may be all one style or era, for others it may be an eclectic mix of colours, periods and designs.
With this in mind, we have carefully selected each item in our first collection to show how one key piece can be adapted to the individual, by allowing them to customise or accessorise it to reflect their own personality.
Vintiquery embraces a whole range of styles; from antique, true vintage, retro to contemporary vintage style, so there will always be something for everyone in all the collections we put together.
We hope you will find something that you like in our collection, which will inspire you to be creative with accessories and that you will enjoy wearing for many years to come.
|Black & White Collection|
For the serious collector who is looking for an authentic vintage garment, we have some lovely items that are genuine vintage clothes but have a contemporary look, which we hope will also appeal to those who want to wear vintage clothes that are old, but not old-fashioned; something that is new to them because it was fashionable long before they were born.
|70s Maxi Dress Mr Darren|
You may have gathered from our previous blog that we do have a fondness for the Seventies and so it's not surprising that the team were unanimous in selecting this very flattering original cream maxi dress from the renowned Mr Darren. With it's halterneck, fitted bust and long, flowing skirt, this very floaty, flattering dress is perfect for walks on the beach, for a vintage wedding or for those fun Abba nights being the Dancing Queen!
We're pretty keen on the Fifties too and this sweet, innocent ivory Rockabilly dress is all ready to rock around the clock! Add colourful belt, shoes and accessories and a net petticoat and you're ready to dance the night away. This gorgeous vintage dress is also demure enough to wear for a wedding; some pearls and white gloves will give you the elegance of Grace Kelly, ladylike and classy.
|70s Vintage 40s Style Dress|
We also have some very interesting attic finds. A fabulous black and white tea dress that is forties style but has been stored unworn since the early 1970s. As it has been cherished for so long, we are hoping that it will now find a new owner who will not only enjoy owning a piece of fashion history, but wearing the dress giving it a new lease of life.
|True Vintage 50s Suit|
Alongside this, we have an original fifties suit that has been rescued from obscurity and is now in need of a loving new owner, who won't mind giving it a little attention, maybe a new set of buttons and fastenings, stamping their own personality on this vintage gem.
|Vintage 20s Style Dress|
Flappers and fans of the twenties look will have two charleston style dresses to choose from: both in shades of aqua, one sequined and one beaded, how to choose? It's going to be a close call, they are both equally gorgeous!
|20s Style Dress By Vila|
We know how important accessories are for that designer vintage look and we have found some very desirable items.
|Dolce & Gabbana Bag|
We are reluctantly parting with this gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana white leather handbag. It's so stylish that every woman who sees it will have bag envy!
For label lovers we have beautiful dresses from Karen Millen, Milly of New York and Elspeth Gibson.
|Milly Of New York|
For the serious collector, a vintage bride, or Belle of the Ball, we have an amazing pair of gold lace shoes. Designed by Peerless, made with genuine Swiss lace, they date from the 1960s and are in the style the Queen favours, court shoe with chunky heel, but the cute little bows and tiny size 4 make them suitable for all aspiring Cinderellas!
|Peerless Shoes & Handbag|
These shoes are pretty stunning on their own, but we also have their soulmate on offer for sale, a very glamorous matching handbag, again in the design Her Majesty The Queen favours, very regal!
They may not be diamonds, but this beautiful boxed vintage set of matching glass and diamante brooch and clip on earrings, shine just as brightly and complete the royalty look.
For glamour girls, we've got this fabulous vintage 1990s Burlesque style dress, which goes well with the pretty beaded bag.
|1990s Etam Burlesque Dress|
|M & S Vintage Style Beaded Bag|
We've chosen this unusual 80s Metallic Prom Dress for the Homecoming Queen
|Prom Dress By Paul Poly|
And finally, for a truly, dreamy, romantic, vintage look, this gorgeous vintage style butterfly dress from The Vestry.
Made from the most beautiful cafe au lait silk fabric, it has shimmering gold and turquoise peacock butterflies scattered all over it, which shine when they catch the light.
We love this dress so much, we may even shed a tear when we say goodbye to it! But so long as it goes to a loving home and gets to go to lots of parties then we'll be happy!
These are just a few of the items in our online shop, we have lots more vintage and vintage style dresses, shoes and accessories in store, so please take a look. Hurry though if you see something you like, as if you delay you may miss out to another buyer!
We look forward to welcoming you soon at
