Miss Alabama 1977

A woman by the name of Julie Houston graced our shop last week with some of the most gorgeous evening gowns I've ever seen. She goes on to tell us that she had won Miss Alabama in 1977 and these were the gowns she wore to the Miss America Pageant. She decided it was time to part ways with them and graciously brought them to our shop! A few gals have come in and tried some on and look just divine in them. However she was teeny tiny! Most of these dresses are zeros and one is even a double zero!

Some were custom made by her mother just for Ms. Houston and the rest are one of my absolutely favorite vintage designers, Mike Benet. These gowns are just drool-worthy. We posted some to etsy to spread the eye candy around! Go check us out, here are just a few pictures:

We hope ya'll are having the most beautiful day,

Zoe gals.

5 things we love part 2!

That's right, it's time for our weekly...
'5 things we love'
Part 2: A day in the country

1. 1950s checkered full dress
This beautiful beauty is a perfect for a picnic or day out in the country. My instinct for this dress is to go ride a bike all about town.

2. White western half boots
I ADORE these. When they came in this week, I cried a little that they weren't my size! So divine!

3. Men's 1970s farm tie
This tie is a hoot & a half. Makes me want to put in a hard days on the farm.

4. 1960s men's button up
It goes PERFECTLY with the tie ;)
5. The new hat section of Zoe's!
We've received some incredible hats within the past few weeks, Jessica set it up in a lovely display at the back of the store, come stop by and see the rest!

That's all for today lovely people! We hope you all are having the most beautiful day, come stop by the shop and see us!

Love to all,
Zoe gals
