If I were Tracey's Personal Stylist( I wish!)

I have been going back to this AMAZING site where the owner showcases vintage clothing. She had sold a black Claire McCardell dress to Tracey when she contacted the owner Angie a while back when she needed a dress for the CFDA Awards.

Thanks to Angie for allowing me to use her photos!

Here is the site:

I have been looking at many dresses, because I like vintage clothing and have pictured Tracey in them. I think that they would really suit her, because Tracey loves Vintage, especially Claire McCardell!

Here are some dresses that I really like, and think Tracey would look amazing in. I know I keep saying amazing, but the site is, and the dresses!

New old stock 60s dress of red chiffon with shadow rose print. Over red acetate, neckline drapes over bare skin. Lower in back. Piped at waist with tiny bows atop hips. Original store tags, by JONATHAN LOGAN. Flawless, never worn! Full skirt can be worn as shown or over a small crinoline. The perfect party dress!!

a stunning black taffeta bias cut 30s gown with wide ruffled collar and demure pink bows on sleeves.

Smashing black crepe 40s cocktail dress with swirling golden beaded details. Top has angled piece wrapping across to left shoulder, mimicked in a sarong wrap effect on skirt.

Violet pink and grey flecked rayon 50s dress with ruching at side bust and angled V neckline. Full skirt. Side metal zip, no label, no flaws.

Black crepe backed, matte silk satin 60s dress with button front bodice and off set waist bow. Snaps behind waist seam and slit to mid hips. No label, expertly made and flawless!

Hollyberry red taffeta 50s gown with bustle back and rhinestone studded insert at neckline. Pleats and folds envelop inset at neckline accented with various shapes of rhinestones, wide straps, nipped waist. Back has dramatic bustled effect at top of skirt. Side metal zipper, no labels. A handful of storage spots around hemline too faint to photograph, dress could be worn as is or made ballet length.

Lemon yellow 60s cress in crepe rayon with wide sash and rhinestone button detail. Military inspired angled placket on bodice accented with rhinestone buttons. Wide sash at waist, back metal zipper. One small spot toward end of sash, very faint.

Two piece 60s dress of chiffon and lace. Nearly sleeveless shell style blouse makes the top half of this dress with sheer chiffon shoulders, black lace to waist, buttons at back of neck and down lace panel. Full skirt of black chiffon over acetate taffeta. Wear together as a dress or use separately as parts of other ensembles....the black chiffon skirt alone is a fantastic basic to work with! No flaws.

50's silk chiffon dress in bold stripes of red, pink, black and purple. A hot color combo for summer! Fully lined, metal zip up back, by Sa 'Bett. No flaws.

A bronze taffeta 50s party dress with velvet ribbon and soutache detail, by MINX MODES. Velvet ribbon underbust and down to hemline....vertical band accents a button down closure. Scoop neckline, angled sleeves. Beautiful color sets off black details perfectly! My Favorite!!

Sweet candy pink cotton 50s summer dress with piped "shelf bust" bodice. Full skirt. Back metal zipper, no label. Small darker pink dot towards hemline, no other issues.

70s channels 30s in this dreamy sundrop yellow chiffon gown with sheer overjacket bringing to mind the ethereal dancing gowns of Ginger Rogers. By "Lillie Rubin". Deep V neckline front and back, back metal zipper. Skirt is full and has rolled hemline to create a structured, floating-above-the-floor effect. Sheer jacket has hook and eye at throat and wide scarves to tie in a bow, leave open or in a loose knot. Cuffs have gold and rhinestone buttons. The jacket would look great worn over a cami and leggings! A fantastic, flawless set.
