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:

Are they not just magical?!?! Thanks for stopping by to see our latest! Please come in to the shop to get the full beauty of these treasures!

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

Zoe gals.
