Cute but wrong size for me... and mostly blue

For the last two day's I've been searching for cute/classy/pretty (yet inexpensive) vintage dresses from 40's or early 50's on Ebay. I found some that I'm considering and already bought one, but there were also so many charming dresses that were wrong size for me. (Or blue, because that really is not a color I feel comfortable in. I have a big problem with blue. Blue makes me look like a... a...)

So, inspired by Cheri and her post (about vintage dresses for under $80) I decided to share some of my finds with you.

Look at the details! I love the embroidery on this dress. (The seller says that this dress was propably never worn.) It's almost my size, but not quite (and it's blue). Bust 36", waist 26", hip 50". Price at the moment is $29.99 with one bid only.

This dress is just super sweet... Just look at that slightly sheer white insert on the bodice and those appliqued hearts! *Sight* The Bust 38", waist 30", hips free. Zero bids so far and the starting price is $9.99.

How about this one? It's even pink! Price $34.99 right now with only one bid... Bust 40", waist 30", hips to 46".

Casual but smart dress for winter, anyome? Bust 48", waist 46" and hips 56"... if I got it right. There's zero bids and the starting price is just $18.

Just stunning! This dress has so many pretty details. I would love this one, but I refuse to even thinking about buying it for alteration. Price at $20.50 right now... Bust 38", waist 27.5", hips 38".

This dress is a sensible one and needs a little TLC. But I still find it very appealing... Price seems to be $20 at the moment and measurements are: 44" bust, 39" waist, 49" hip.

I would love this dress. Yes I would. I could just immagine myself lounging on a lazy morning wearing something like this... Starting price is $24. Bust 38", waist c. 32" and hips to 50".

This dress is one of my favourites... and I usually don't even like blue. Zero bids at the moment and the staring price is $9. (Oh, really!?) The seller says it's in excellent vintage condition. Bust 44", Waist: 38”, Hips: 48”.

Thanks for the post! I'm glad I have inspried you! I love the blue one at the bottom! And the red one that needs TLC I will have to keep an eye on those two even though I don't usually use Ebay. :)

Ebay is not my favorite, but sometimes there are amazing bargains to be made there... like gaining 6 vintage hats and 3 dresses for $50. ;)
