Me, I can remember it really clearly! I looked at old paper pictures of me and my husband some days ago and I came across pictures of the day I wore it for the first time.
It was a sunny day in summer 2001 during a vintage cars show.
My husband (he was just my boyfriend than...) already owned his 1959 Cadillac.
He must have had a "Top Gun" complex with his US Navy Uniform. I was probably proud to be with Tom Cruise on that special day...
I remember to have bought this dress in a shop in Strasbourg which unfortunatly doesn't exist anymore. That shop was KILOSHOP a place where we was able to buy vintage per kg!!! I bought it about 7 euros...
It was not a "real" 50's dress but just a 80's one does 50's. But at that time, I didn't know anything about 50's dresses except from some vintage magazines bought a month before. I was asking myself "Is it a real 50's dress?" and I didn't know how to be sure of that...
It was a nice dress very well made with an amazing petticoat and embroidered dots on the skirt, but I don't own it anymore because it was too small, moreover I'm only wearing "real" 40's-50's clothes now.
All accessories on those pictures were modern ones except the umbrella which is from the 50's. I still own it with a lot of others now!
What do you think of this dress?
Do you remember your first vintage dress?
