Win a vintage 1950s black satin evening bag


This week’s competition has been donated by Posh Girl Vintage, a vintage online clothing store which is family owned & operated in beautiful Southern California.

This is what they have to say about Posh Girl Vintage:

Our family has a long history in the clothing business. You could say it’s in our blood. Mother, daughter & grandmother have all worked in the clothing & entertainment industry since the early 1950’s. Our family owned 2 high end fashion boutiques in Newport Beach & Laguna Beach California during the 70’s & 80’s. My grandmother was the head buyer for 2 major department stores in Newport Beach. One being Richard’s during the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, and interior designer for John Wayne and other high profile people in and around Balboa Island.
After shopping on-line for vintage clothing I realized what I wanted was not on the web. I found either dirty thrift store quality clothes with really poorly designed websites, or really expensive museum quality clothing. So I set out to build Posh Girl Vintage clothing store. My goal was to build an on-line store that was modern & easy to use with great unique wearable quality vintage clothing at a fair price & honest service.

    My favourite has to be the 1950s Pink cotton Appliqué tea length dress. Very pretty and feminine. Not sure I’d have the legs to pull it off though lol.

    I would love to own a pair of the 1940’s Brown Platform Heels Shoes. They are gorgeous and so different. Think I need to start saving some more money lol x
    Good Luck everyone!

    I absolutely adore the 1940s Black Belted Princess coat, it’s stylish, with a super feminine cut that would so suit my figure. Definitely something to truly lust after!

    I love most of them! My personal favourite (by a thread) is the 1950’s Teal Taffeta Tea length Evening Dress. It is absolutely stunning and will look fantastic on my niece for her prom and when I lose my baby weight on me too!
