Shop Update: Finishing Touches

1940s faux pearl necklace with original silk-lined presentation box

Sometimes outfits are all about finding the right finishing touch... whether that's a printed silk scarf or a pretty vintage necklace. So that's why I've been busy stocking up the accessories section of Elly Maggy Vintage.

From a seventies statement piece to forties faux pearls, this latest shop update has something for everyone. And for me, it's the brilliant Vera Neumann scarf. If you're a fan too, be sure to stay tuned for some special Vera-related blog posts in the near future!

 I'm taking this freezing cold evening to share some pieces that have made it into the shop since the start of the new year. This update has two very special 1960s designer pieces - a Margot Paynton gown with a beautiful ruffle collar and full-length back train and a wonderful knit by Laura Aponte of Rome, who designed at the legendary House of Schiaparelli, before setting up her own couture line. As always, click on the links to visit the Etsy listings.

Best of 2016

April: 50s cotton dress by Lucinda of California | June: 1940s Summer Garden skirt | May: 1950s pink cotton blouse

Happy New Year! As is tradition, here's a round-up of some of my favourite pieces that found new homes in 2016. I think my very favourite is the beautiful late 30s Horrockses fabric swimsuit which left Elly Maggy Vintage to join the collection of the world's first ever bikini museum. I hope to share a photo here on the blog... once the museum opens in 2018! 

November: Late 1930s Horrockses fabric swimsuit by Martin White | July: 40s / 50s buttons bolero | August: 1970s crochet top by Lilly Gould of London

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to finding lots of new vintage in 2017 and have some exciting plans in the works for the shop... I'll be making announcements here soon!
