Today's House Dress!


Just a little vintage house dress here, wearing no shoes, hehe!  By the way, what year do you all think this dress is from the 40s, 50s, or 60s? I would like to know so that I can label it correctly. I acquired the dress from Zwzzy on etsy, but can't remember what year this is from.

Wearing:
Vintage House Dress  from Zwzzy Vintage -Etsy
Red Necklace -Dillard's
Bakelite bangles -Ebay
Red  Bangle -Forever 21
Red Rose Carved Earrings -Ross
Platform Shoes -Guess

  1. I want that dress! My Mom made me one almost like it, in dark green plaid without the trim, when I was in the 5th or 6th grade. I loved it. Let's see, that would've been around 1962-63. But, I think it would fit into the 40s and 50s, too. Hope you find out for sure!

  2. Nice plaid! Is that lace or just a ruffle around the sleeves and collar? I vote for mid to late 50s. The skirt doesn't look the right shape for 40s. Do you have the 1950s Sears Catalog Book? I bet you could find somehting similar in it.

    1. It's ruffle not lace. And the pattern design is similar to the 1957 Dusters as seen in the 1950s Sears Catalog. The only thing I see different are the sleeves, mine are a little bit higher than those of 1957...

  3. So I did a little bit of research, and found out that the brand Charmode is mainly for under garments, robes, and dusters. So this has to be from around the late 50s to very early 60s. I know for sure it is a duster meant to worn around the house, which is good. I wouldn't want to be caught wearing as a dress, maybe just to do a quick errand would be fine. All in all, I love it! I've had it for a little more than over a year, and enjoyed it very much.

    P.S.
    I added two more pics to the post of the label and the ruffle. Just so that y'all could take a look.

  4. Hello,

    I've just discovered your blog:) I think, your dress is late 50s as well.It reminds me of my grandmother's dresses, the colours are too brights. 40's trends were sober. You look grand:)

    Love,
