Vintage Frocks of Fancy

For this next edition of Who Hearts Yellow House Knits?,  I thought I would spotlight Vintage Frocks of Fancy and the gorgeous vintage dresses for sale in this shop.  I think I like this shop so much because it allows me to channel my inner Grace Kelly or Jackie Kennedy or Betty Draper.  The dresses speak to a time when people were more elegant, dinner meant dressing up, and we socialized in person rather than via text message.

I'm fascinated by these dresses because, as with old houses, I can't help but wonder about their story.  Who wore them and where did they go?  I imagine lives much more glamorous than mine!

Vintage Frocks of Fancy's Etsy  shop is arranged by decade, which allows buyers and window shoppers to see how fashions have changed over the years.  Dresses include more formal gowns and casual day dresses.

Be sure to read the clever item descriptions, which provide a glimpse into the lives of the women who may have worn these dresses.
