Unique Vintage is an online clothing store that focuses on a different look into a vintage-inspired vision. From the floral chiffon gowns straight out of “Mad Men’s” garden parties to the black wiggle dresses that Audrey Hepburn herself would have swooned over. There is definitely something on this website that will make you feel nothing less than a Hollywood movie star. Since I can remember I have been absolutely obsessed with 1950s pinups so this was right up my alley. New You got the opportunity to sample the “Cozy Red Flannel Mitzi Swing Dress,” and the “Brown Leopard Vixen Wiggles Dress,” on Halloween. Although I would have absolutely worn any of these outfits on any other day this absolutely went with our vision of the 1950’s house wife and cat woman. The Red cotton flannel dress that I wore truly possesses a lustrous sheen. The cinched tie waist is flattering and drops into an A-line swing skirt that is perfect for spinning. I must admit it I have never worn a complete plaid dress, but as I walked through the doors of the New You offices I got great feedback and so many questions as to wear I got that fabulous dress. The swing dress was comfortable and figure friendly, making it perfect for any size. For curvier women like myself no worries because this dress can do no wrong. The Vixen wiggle dress purrs with perfection. This sultry dress was crafted from flexible fabric and is flattering and easy to move in.
Pros: Great find for affordable vintage clothing.
Cons: Must have more vintage.
