Now that the warm weather has finally began, it's time to get out the Swirl dresses. I have two and I'd actually love a closet full. They are so fun to wear. The problem is everyone else thinks so too. So, to find a Swirl dress is a challenge in itself, then you must find a design you like, and finally find one that is within your budget or what you are willing to pay. Swirl dresses can upwards of $150. So, imagine my luck when I picked up this lovely dress for $25. They are fun to wear and this is great because I have a habit of buying dresses that you would go to a ladies tea party in (sorry can't help myself).
What I also love about Swirl is that even though it is a wrap dress, there are small details that add to the vintage charm. This particular dress has some really cute pockets that are fastened with a bow.
The Vintage Traveler has an expose on Swirl dresses. You can see several posts about these creations.
I also realize that a Swirl dress would go great with wedges. I think I need to hunt down an affordable pair of black 40's/50's wedge shoes. I had to pick up some drycleaning today and I'm friendly with the lady at the drycleaners and she asked me where I was going? If it was somewhere special? You gotta love this as a Swirl was considered a house dress to our vintage counterparts.
There are so many awesome styles and also some really interesting vintage ads for these wonderful dresses.
Do any of you have a Swirl dress? Were you also able to buy yours under the radar so to speak?
