We had unexpected company this week and after trying to decide between Duty & Designer Vintage Clothes I threw caution to the wind and took a drive Friday afternoon to preview an amazing collection of art, antiques, books, and yes~~Vintage Designer Clothing. . .I happened to drop by one of my favorite Vintage Clothing Links and found out about The Estate of DD Ryan & made a last minute decision to meet my friend there (who, coincidentally, has something listed for auction during Session II which will be held Sunday afternoon.)
Here are a few of the beautiful possessions that could be yours for the bidding today:
This coat was absolutely stunning. . .it was the best piece in the collection and there were many interested parties trying it on and contacting their clients. It was in excellent condition and I know there is a very happy new owner of this Vintage Gem out there somewhere tonight!!
This took a close second. . .I would guess it dated back to turn of the century. Stunning. The fabric was divine.
Unfortunately, it had mold & damage but you never know~~it may show up on a runway somewhere after some brilliant designer takes it apart and uses it as a pattern for some New Old Vintage Inspired Collection!
A young DD Ryan. . .
If you go to Grogan & Company's Website you can read all about her amazing life and the circles she swirled in. . .she was originally from Bristol, Rhode Island.
(She reminds me a bit of Audrey Hepburn in many of the photos I saw)
This was one of the beautiful works of art up for auction. . . by French Artist Marcel Vertes. Oil on canvas.
Entitled: Couples Embrace
A beautiful way to spend a Friday afternoon. . .and my friend ended up on New England Cable News to boot!
Hello everyone. . .you may have noticed that I "re~posted" (is that a word?) my post about Grace Kelly's fantastic style (it was originally on THE RED VELVET SHOE BLOG). There is a method to my madness!
I found this in my morning paper one day last week and just had to let you know about it:
I'm sure the gowns will be just amazing! And the exhibit as well, here is "le link" for you to take a peek!
Let's go to Sotheby's!!
Autumn in New York~~my favorite time of year to be in the city. . .such great walking weather. Maybe you are fortunate enough to live "in town"~~has anyone seen the exhibit? I may just have to take a road trip before the month is over. . .which it almost is, isn't it?
Of course if I make it to New York I'll have to do some window shopping at Tiffany's. . .
