1940s Vintage "Navy Oreleans Dress" from Adored Vintage

Looky what I got! A new 1940s vintage piece purchased at Adored Vintage. The Vintage Boutique is located in Los Angeles. The show room is available by appointment and the site allows for purchases online.

AV finds their items at flea markets and antique shops. They sell their clothing in good condition and take the guess work (for the most part) out of sizing and fit. Eras range from 1900s to 1970s and an occasional 1980s piece. I'm almost always a 1940s gal, but once in a blue moon, I'll find a 30s piece I like. Check out the site, and see for yourself.

Sorry fellas, they don't sell men's clothes.

AV calls this dress, Navy Orleans Dress.

Description from the online boutique: Vintage 1940s dark indigo navy blue dress. Rounded neckline, short sleeves, and sheer illusion bodice along the top. Fabric has pinstripe piping throughout and contrasting horizontal lace panels. Features attached little brooch with rhinestone and original belt.

Belt buckle is a bit faded; stitching remains in tact.
