Who sells non-costumey retro dresses for reasonable prices? I dig '50s style dresses in particular, and have a hard time finding them aside from ModCloth.
I love a 1950s (Rockabilly-Lite?) look, but have a hard time finding good stuff online or otherwise.
I own a couple of A-line dresses that I like from ModCloth, Hepcat
and Soda Fountain
, and would love to find more stuff along the same lines. I also like "wiggle dresses
" (though I have no idea how they'd look on me). I'm looking for stuff to wear on kind of an everyday or casual-ish "going out" level. Dresses, separates, and accessories are all welcome. (Shoes too, if you insist, though I need a new pair of heels like I need a hole in the head.)
Who carries this kind of stuff on a fairly consistent basis, aside from ModCloth? While I like the two dresses I have from them, the quality is just OK. Is ModCloth really my best option here?
I find a lot of stuff I either feel is too expensive (I'd like to stay at or below ~$100 mark for a dress, for example, if possible... unless you can convince me otherwise based on quality) and/or too costumey (stuff obviously intended for pinup photoshoot type things).
