This 40s Ella Swing Dress is designed in collaboration with no one less than the lovely Miss Victory Violet!

Beautiful Ella recently visited our TopVintage headquarters, so we had the opportunity to ask her about her inspiration for this key item of the Librarian Girl Collection! She told us she combined all the special details from real vintage dresses with the typical longer hem lines from the 1940s and 1950s and all of that in stunning, warm colours. The outcome are two super special dresses, that as a true vintage lover, cannot miss in your dress-collection! This amazing dress features a stunning fitted top with playful, faux buttons, elegant pleated cap sleeves and a breathtaking tartan bodice. The waist will be perfectly emphasized by the tartan belt that in contrast with the full and long swing skirt a classic vintage silhouette creates. The skirt seems to have a slit with a tartan skirt peeking underneath but that's just an illusion... the skirt is completely made of one piece, wow! Made from a firm yet supple, dark green fabric with a light stretch and is finished off with mustard yellow and burgundy details. Feel classy, sophisticated, feminine but above all (B)Ella when wearing this beauty! Read more...

I love retro

Ik ben super blij met mijn collectie van jurken en andere kledij van TOP VINTAGE. Sedert enige jaren ben ik beginnen te leven hoe ik mij best voel, eindelijk al van jongs af maar nu mij kan uiten. Daarna begon ik met mij persoonlijkheid van kledij en dacht waarom niet op zijn retro en ik zocht het op via internet en kwam op deze site terecht en bestelde een paar jurken. Bij mij aangekomen trok ik ze aan en ja was ik happy, helemaal happy en dan ben ik beginnen te bestellen want mijn leven zonder retro kleren is voor mij geen leven. Ik ben 51 jaar; 1 M 65 en slank gebouwd dus maat S. Ik verzorg mij graag en ben graag mooi gekleed. Ik ben transgender (man naar vrouw) en ben niet beschaamd daarin. Ik leef dan ook 7/7 en 24/24 uur en heb veel respect van de mensen rondom mij. Door dat ik nu gelukkig ben omdat ik mijzelf kan zijn en kleren kan dragen wat ik wil voel ik mij een heel stuk jonger en zelf zekerder


Traumhaft alles passt wie angegossen bin sehr zufrieden

Voor mij gemaakt!

De jurk is echt voor mij gemaakt. Helemaal in herfsttinten die mij zo goed staan. Zit als gegoten en staat fantastisch.
De bolero past mooi bij de jurk waardoor ik die nu ook al kan dragen. Alleen jammer dat die nu is afgeprijsd, terwijl ik m nog niet zo lang geleden gekocht heb.

Beste Sabine, fijn dat je zo blij met je nieuwe spulletjes bent! Maar ik snap dat het toch een beetje zuur is om je nieuwe bolero nu in onze sale te zien! Ik neem vandaag nog even contact met je op om te kijken of ik je weer blij kan maken!


Autumnal Glamour

I bought this dress as well as the Ella Raspberry dress (I couldn't help myself!). I bought the size L (UK 14-16). If it helps, my measurements are 39-31-42" and I'm 5'10" tall (1.84m). The dresses fit like a glove; so much so they look like they were made for me. I'm delighted! Both are stunning but I've got to say, the Emerald green / autumnal plaid is my favourite. The colours are rich, and striking. I also paired with the shoes MVV wears in the photo (Miss L Fire 'Starlet' - not stocked on Top Vintage). I also bought the Vixen 'Ella Bow' Emerald green long sleeved shrug for wear when it gets a bit nippy. I wasn't sure on the buttons based on the photos, but they look good in reality. I also love that there are no cheap belt hooks too. Overall I'm super happy. The quality is as good as the design. Thanks Miss Candyfloss & Top Vintage!

The best day dress Iv'e ever had! Definitely a wardrobe favourite!

Lovely brushed cotton weave which is warm and very comfortable ( no stretch). High quality construction, bias binding on inside seams means it wont fray inside so it washes and wears beautifully. I get loads of compliments when i wear it with a red shrug belt& heals.
Definitely a wardrobe favourite!
