Those of you who read my last post entitled “Joan Crawford inspired look” are probably already familiar with Xtabay Vintage shop where I found the most perfect 1940s cocktail dress that I believe Crawford herself would have approved of! If however, this is the first time you are hearing about this shop extraordinaire, may I present you now with the perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with a place where you can find museum-worthy pieces, jaw-draping vintage gowns or a wedding dress fit for a movie star!

La Belle Vintage – shop of the week!

If I was to describe Sascha, the owner of La Belle Vintage, in just a word or two, Vintage-Fairy is what springs immediately to mind. The reason being, is that Sascha makes vintage dreams come true by finding exactly what I’m looking for and in great condition so, that I don’t have to stress out about the possibility of having to mend, which I’m truly awful at.  Apart from being very knowledgeable on the topic of vintage fashion, as well as costume restoration, Sascha is also incredibly kind and generous, making the whole process of buying vintage clothes a delightful experience and making me always want to come back for more! You can see my breathtaking 1940s dress from La Belle Vintage here!
