Style Spotlight - Vintage Party Dresses

With us heading towards the most 'normal' Christmas season in several years, that means lots more parties and reasons to celebrate! And of course, parties mean party dresses. The only way to avoid that same-dress-as-her drama is to shop vintage this party season. By choosing a vintage party dress, you will be getting something unique, extraordinary and super stylish with a small helping of smugness! Whether you want something sparkly, figure-hugging, long and glamorous, big and swishy or understatedly demure - My Vintage has something perfect for you. So, let's see what the Style Spotlight is shining on this week...

We love this petite show stopping bodycon cocktail dress from early 90s Miss Selfridge. Skin tight black stretch covered in sparkling black sequins. Halterneck design with sweetheart neckline and shaped fit on the waist and hips to create that curvy silhouette. Pull on style. In very good vintage condition.

Stunning original designer vintage Susan Small cocktail dress from the 1960s. Purple crepe silk feels luxurious and falls beautifully. This is an empire line cocktail dress with inveted triangle feature and bow below bust. Wide straps and fully lined, non stretch material. Fastens with a back zip. Very good vintage condition.

Unique and unusual party dress from the iconic Frank Usher. Bright green sateen finish fabric with dropped waist and hip sash detail, leading to a fanned out skirt. This gorgeous dress is finished with a pretty pearl detail to the top. Non stretch and fastens with a side zip and hook. In very good vintage condition.

Beautifully elegant prom style dress from the 1950s. This vintage dress has been made by hand and consists of a quality lined velvet with rows of soft lace on the bust. Classic cinched waist and full skirt, although not full circle. Black satin skinny double straps and a back zip with hooks and eyes to conceal. Non stretch and in very good vintage condition.

Glam little cocktail dress from sought after Canadian label Joseph Ribkoff. Wrapover bust with capped sleeves and fitted pencil style with plenty of stretch. Interesting ribbed texture is super flattering and the rich cobalt blue is simply gorgeous. Simple pull on style and in very good vintage condition.

Who doesn't love a fabulous fully sequinned dress? This is a great sparkly shift in ravishing red with pretty gold detailing. Short sleeves no keyhole detail at bust. Floral bursts of gold sequins make the top even more interesting. Non stretch with a back zip fastening. In very good vintage condition.

Looking for a 1920s-inspired dress? This is a great little find from 1990s Next. Classic black in short, straight shape with full fringing. Non-stretch in pull on style with single button fastening at the back. Ideal for those Gatsby themed parties and events, just add some Mary Jane shoes and a few accessories and you're done. In very good vintage condition.

Wow! This is a stunning vintage dress from the very collectable Jean Allen. Beautiful and whimsical floaty strapless prom dress with boned rouched bodice and sweetheart neckline. The cinched waist leads to a full midi skirt and you can also add a petticoat and slim belt for more volume to give this a more 1950s look. Chiffon style fabric with full lining. Fastens with a back zip. Non stretch and very fitted. In very good vintage condition.

A truly stunning evening gown by luxury British designer Terence Nolder who was known for being a designer at Quorum - the legendary label whose previous designers included the likes of Alice Pollock & Ossie Clark. This beautiful cocktail/party dress has a classic black background and is covered in green and silver glitter paillettes, creating an ombre effect as the green deepens towards the hem. The handkerchief hemline creates another interesting feature as you move. Fitted and stretchy with a low back and back zip fastening. Slightly sheer. In excellent vintage condition.

Super cute mini party dress in a deep midnight blue. Fitted stretch velvet with sequinned bust. The top of the dress is lightly boned to keep the dress in place sitting off the shoulder. Just add heels for a cute and unique party look. Fastens with a back zip. In very good vintage condition.

This is such a fun vintage party dress that has been lovingly handmade. With influence from 1950 prom dresses, the top is stretchy and covered in shimmering sequins and white beads whilst the skirt is a triple layer of lilac netting. Dropped waist trimmed with decorative beading. Back zip fastening - the zip is a little temperamental but could easily be replaced. Very cute and one of a kind vintage dress in good vintage condition.
