    After much deliberation; choosing and re-choosing, my favourite item in the Dear Golden shop has to be the 1940s Terra Cotta rayon blouse. I love every pair of shoes in the shop, but I couldn’t decide between them!
    My favourite era has to be 1950’s. The dresses and the fashion at the time was really elegant, but also celebrated the curvy woman. I especially adore the iconic Red and white polka dot from that era – wonderful!

    I’ve mentioned the giveaway and a couple of my favourite items on my blog here: http://thebestthingsinlifearethese.blogspot.com/2011/08/dear-golden.html

    My favourite item would be the 1940s Summer with Ravel cotton dress, I love the shape and design so much.
    And my favourite era would be the 1950s because it promoted the curvy body shape, like Marilyn Monroe for example and her iconic white dress which she wore in ‘The Seven Year Itch’. I just love the style of the skirts and dresses.

    Oh, I have been following Dear Golden vintage path for pretty long time now, both on her shop and blog. That keeps me inspired and confident about vintage over and over again.

    My favorite piece currently is this silk camisole http://www.etsy.com/listing/78987059/1970s-petal-silk-and-lace-camisole

    It would be hard to name my favorite era as pretty much any vintage fashion era offers something I just adore. But what I appretiate the most is durability, complimenting silhouette, high quality fabrics, unusual patterns and great tailoring!

    my favorite thing in the dear golden shop is lauren. my second favorite is ella. but she’s not in the shop, so maybe that doesn’t count.

    I love the collar on this floral blouse- it’s just such a versatile item in general! http://www.etsy.com/listing/77116352/1970s-floral-cotton-blouse

    I love the full skirts on 50’s dresses- I would love to add some of these to my collection!

  6. Azzara says:

    my favourite thing would have to be the 1970s Nautical Stripe dress. it’s really hard to choose, but i definitely have a thing for blue dresses.

    i love the 50’s, day dresses, twirly skirts and fitted tops are the bomb! also short hair and hats! clearly i was born in the wrong era!

    I love Dear Golden’s shop, she is an everyday inspiration! I am head over heels for the 1950s Easy Poetry chiffon party dress! Channeling the ever polished Betty Draper!

    The 1940s is my era of choice. Women were so beautifully put together and you can really see how the world issues of the period mirrored in fashion. Plus strong women in menswear and the elegance of the movies…Bonus!

    love love love the ‘1960s Mollie Parnis pique garden dress’ (http://www.etsy.com/listing/70564548/1960s-mollie-parnis-pique-garden-dress) – so sweet and cheery!

    the 50s/60s is my fav … all of those heartbreaking dresses, oh my!


  9. Shishi says:

    I love almost every single garment in dear golden’s shop, but I’m especially fond of all the beautiful lingerie and 50s dresses. The 1950s Viridian Shimmer party dress is a favourite of mine ATM. I love the silhouette of 50s dresses, because apart from being gorgeous, they’re very flattering for my figure.

  10. AZ says:

    Why do I love Dear Golden? I can lust after vintage dresses all the while listening to great music (e.g. http://deargolden.blogspot.com/2011/08/washed-out.html)

    As for my favourite fashion era, I would have to say the current. I can wear a men’s inspired suit one day and an ultra-feminine 50’s dress the next.

    That’s tough to beat..
