Christian Dior, Malcom Starr, Bonwitt Teller, Hanae Mori, Lord & Taylor, Goldworm and more!

I have a lot of work to do!  Photographing and posting my new inventory to my Shop on Etsy Vintage 201.

I came across a 1950s Christian Dior Black Satin Cloche Style with Black Beads and lined with Grosgrain. I was immediately drawn to this Stunning Chapeaux.  You can see a glimpse of it here on the left.

The next hat on the right is a 1950s Black Ostrich Feathers with a Satin Gold Bow and a Velvet Magenta Rose with Green pedals.  This lovely hat is trimmed in velvet and was made by Vincent Harmik for Bonwitt Teller.  
The hat in the center is a 1940s Black Velvet Beauty.  This Hat is has a black veil and a gorgeous Rhinestone Bow by Atelier Lucas made in England For Lord & Taylor.  It is a structured turban style and I just adore this hat!  I know you can not really see the shape of these hats, but once photographed separately and posted, you will be able to see their style and beauty.  

Today's collection also includes a silver Leather Evening Clutch with Rhinestone trim and Clasp.  It includes a mirror and change purse made by Mr. Jay.  The other 2 bags are both made in Italy.  One is a white rattan with Lucite trim and clasp by Olympic and the other is a soft leather in Blue and made for Bloomingdale's.     

The 2 pairs of Pointy Stilettos shoes are both Early 1960s and are size 7.  The pair on the left is made with Black Material and black Crystals and the pair on the right is  Black Pony Hair.  They both have leather soles, insoles.  These pumps are very well made, Beautiful and sexy!  Pointy shoes like these are my all time FAVS!!    

If you like sparkly dress, well you just love this pretty and quality made 1960s Malcolm Starr Cocktail brocade sheath dress in white.  It is has tons of sparkly rhinestones, beads and sequins!  Oh, and  2 Very cool and mod 1960s Gloldworm outfits and one very colorful abstract, Polyester Knit, Hanae Mori pant suit, also from the 60s.  I can't wait to photograph them in a group and post them as soon as possible so, if you are interested, check back to see the lovely finds or Contact me.    

Thank you for reading!  Gina


  1. I have a BLK pair of Christian Dior Designed by Roger Vivier & also say Bonwitt Teller. They are hand signed, numbered, also the size is written in by hand in fancy hand writing! They are a sueade type/marcacite.. if anyone knows anything about these shoes please let me know. I might be selling them! Thanks,

  2. Hello and thank you for commenting. Roger Vivier designed for Christian Dior in the 1950s. Are your shoes from there and are they signed by Roger Vivier as well? I have noticed that these iconic shoes sell very well but if they are signed, perhaps I can send you to another person that would know more.

    Thanks for sharing if you like, you can send me an email with pictures.
