Go Retro

I like retro clothing. I am sure that my circa 1960 upbringing has something to do with my penchant for fashion from the '50's and '60's.

Recently, I discovered Unique Vintage, an online store that sells clothing in styles from the 1920's to 1960's. Some of their clothing would be more appropriate for a costume party, for example, their flapper dresses from the 1920's. However, I would feel very comfortable wearing a lot of their clothing on the street, for example, their floral draped shoulder "Sophia" wiggle dress from their 1950 collection (pictured to the right).

Good news is that their prices are reasonable ($68 for the wiggle dress) and they carry plus sizes for girls like us.

I cannot speak for their quality because I have not yet personally sampled their products, but I plan to do so real soon now.

  2. Oh all the styles when I was younger. Swing dresses, Shirt dresses as well as wiggle dresses. I also saw something that I haven't noticed in a long time. Sailor style shorts and slacks. And from the 60's rompers and tent dresses.

    I see from the above that I am not the first to click the link for Unique Vintage. I suspect many of your readers wold like their wares. You may want to ask if they will be one of your sponsors. As you enter retirement every click could help. LOL/

  4. Sadly, that Bettie Page store closed. They were great. Thanks for sharing!
