Dress Twins

So I know I promised Feedsack Friday, but my husband and I took an impromptu trip out to Austin this weekend for our anniversary! (WOOOO!!!!)

While in Austin we decided happened across Amelia's Retro Vogue & Relics which is a pretty fabulous shop that has a wide selection of 1960's and earlier clothing items. While I was there, I happened across the most amazing late 1940's early 1950's gown that is awfully similar to the one I had Miss Kim at Nudeedudee make me for my graduation. It fits decently, but needs some slight alterations to the top. The black portion is a jersey knit and I think it has been hanging for many years which has stretched the fabric. I plan on taking it to my favorite seamstress next week so she can work her magic!

Forgive my hair and makeup it was close to 100F out this afternoon!

The black top is a jersey knit.
This gown from Amelia's is so similar to the one from Nudeedudee that I'm actually wearing the belt from my Nudeedudee dress in the photo above. I am not sure if Kim used a vintage fabric for my custom dress, but I think she did (Kim if you're out there please chime in! ) but the similarities are absolutely fantastic.
My custom made dress from Nudeedudee.

Overall I had a fabulous weekend and I promise feedsack photos tonight!


  1. Miss Kim does it again! LOVE that dress. Great shoes, too!!

  2. Both dresses are amazing! How incredibly cool to have a vintage and a reproduction version of a great dress!

  3. FYI: The shoes are from the lovely Kathryn Kerrigan of course!!!! She loves ladies like me with super wide feet!

  4. Great find, Lady! Both look fabulous on you!! Those shoes rock the house, gotta check out that designer, I have the wide foot issue too!!
