A while ago I stumbled upon this picture of Magda Gabor wearing this pretty dress. It's a bad quality image and I've scoured the internet trying to find another version of it to no avail. As soon as I saw the picture I gasped 'that's my dress!' Well.... I have what I believe, is exactly the same dress. I so wish the picture of Magda was in colour so I could see if it matches exactly!
Here's me in the dress, snapped a couple of months ago at Christmas. Don't you just love it when that happens in the vintage world? Its up there with finding an old advert for an item of clothing you own or seeing someone you know online on the other side of the world has an identical item of vintage as you.
I bought mine about 5 years ago from Beyond Retro on Cheshire Street for £75.00. Red velvet Anne Fogarty's don't seem to be particularly rare, as I've seen a few in different styles before. A quick internet search brought up these below, however she is still a sought after vintage designer who was known for making great quality clothing at affordable prices.
Anyone else had a similar experience with discovering an item of clothing in an old photograph matching something that you own?
