Week 3 of the Spring Vintage Inspirations fashion picks!
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.
Here are this weeks picks!
Prints Charming & Prints Valiant
Charm yourself this week with this pink & black early 50's luscious silk charmeuse dress from dorotheascloset or with this pink & white dreamy crepe 60's secretary dress from morning-glorious.
But if you need something a little stronger this Spring, treat yourself to a 60's silky hot pink floral print sundress (pictured) from The Vintage Peddler or this fab bright pink flowered cotton trapeze dress from denisebrain.

Beauty in the Details
Can't get more detailed than a wedding gown and this 60's Emma Domb ivory brocade choice (pictured) from glamoursurf is exquisite. Not the marrying kind? This remarkable 60's black chiffon rayon pleated babydoll dress from Born Too Late Vintage may get you a proposal or two anyway.

Black & White
This week the black & whites should definitely be read all over - this smashing 70's Op-Art Black & White Peasant Blouse from North Star Vintage, this stunning 50's polka dot full skirted summer dress from dorotheascloset and this Funky Mod 70's Toni Todd Dress (pictured) from morning-glorious.
There's some other amazing B&W items here.
Up the Vampage
Up, up and away with the vampage this week from this curve hugging bronze silk Ceil Chapman 50's wiggle dress (pictured) from dorotheascloset, or this pin-up ready bombshell halter bathing suit from The Marque of Vintage or this 70's Halston clingy jersey mauve goddess gown from The Vintage Peddler.
