Week 2 of the Spring Vintage Inspirations fashion picks!
Here's the lowdown on how it works:
Every Wednesday, VFG Member cactusandcattails is going to post a thread on the forums calling for all vintage sellers to show off their current and upcoming auctions that fit the themes. The whole draw is that *everything* posted will be available for you to buy! Either right that minute or within the week. It's perfect for instant gratificationists like myself.
So without further adieu, here are Week 2's picks!
Prints Charming & Prints Valiant
From the dainty to the dauntless, prints are hot this Spring. If you're looking for that hard to find, completely unique impression then vintage is the only way to go.
This week you can score this 50's sweet, feminine vintage print cotton summer dress from emmapeelpants or this cobalt blue tulip print bias cut rayon 1930's dress (pictured) from Dorothea's Closet Vintage or the definitive definition of charming - this 40's hat print dress with ruffled side swag from Material Memories.
For something a bit on the bolder side we have perfect choices from this zodiac print drop waist dress at borntoolatevintage and this 60's Tori Richard cotton a-line beauty from denisebrain to this early 70's Scandinavian mod blue dress (pictured) from The Marque of Vintage.

Beauty in the Details
Beauty is definitely in the details of these gorgeous intricate lovelies. Choose from this 50's sundress with fabulous embroidery and cutwork eyelet (pictured) from bartondoll or this exquisite 40's beaded peasant style dress (also pictured) from cactusandcattails.

Black & White
No gray areas here. It's all black and white whether you choose this 70's kaftan from Sara's Attic or this this seriously amazing mad spotted 60's dress from emmapeelpants.
Up the Vampage
Nothing says vamp like red! The sex appeal is high on these two lipstick red knockouts. This sizzling red Ossie Clark from emmapeelpants as well as this 80's does 40's siren red ruched & gathered dress (pictured) from Material Memories.
