Another Great Fashion Find

Recently I was looking through a magazine and the fashion being shown was credited to Vintage Luxury.  I was intrigued and, a few days later, went online to seek out more information.

Their store is the Fashion element of, which also offers Furniture & Lighting, Fine Art, Jewelry & Watches and Special Searches.  If you love vintage clothes, then this is a treasure trove of delight, and if I had $8,900 I'd buy my dream dress: 

Mariano Fortuny Shell Pink Delphos

Mariano Fortuny shell pink pleated silk Delphos gown circa 1930. Striated white murano glass bead and silk cord trimmed down side seams and armhole. Silk belt stencilled in silver foliate patterns.

As renown specialists in Fortuny, Vintage Luxury is always interested in acquiring the finest examples of Fortuny including entire collections.

Size is flexible due to pleating.

I can put finding this gown into my weird coicidence file.  You see, I was researching Fortuny gowns about 4-5 months ago for a book, and that was when I figured if I knew where one was, I'd wear it to Authors After Dark's Mythos Masquerade in August.  Now I know where one is and it's way out of the budget.

Oh well, but I shall keep tabs on Vintage Luxury, there are other gowns and jewelry that are gorgeous, maybe they'll come down in price.

By the way, AAD registration is going to close soon, have you signed up to go to Philadelphia yet?  No?  Have you heard about where it's going to be in 2012?  No?  Well I can help you with that one - it's going to be in New Orleans, August 8-12!  The hotel is right there in the heart of Bourbon Street and there are some seriously cool happenings scheduled.  I'll be there and hope you can make it as well.
