Annie at her Westview High School prom in her 1950s blue satin and tulle prom dress from Xtabay.
Annie and her date looking adorable for prom. 
Alexandra trying on her future prom dress….
and there she is on the big night looking absolutely gorgeous.  Alexandra reminds me of young Gina Lollobrigida in this dress. Stunning! 

Claire trying on her future prom dress at Xtabay, Claire is from Michigan and was visiting Portland when she discovered our shop.
Claire's hair and make-up were pure old Hollywood glam~ she looks like a movie star!

Claire and her date on prom night. They are so cute I can hardly stand it. 

Jaclyn in her Xtabay prom dress primping in a vintage barber shop before the prom.

Jaclyn looks so beautiful in her 1960s beaded iridescent red and black silk evening gown- absolutely timeless and elegant. 

Helen wears a 1940's beaded evening gown for her Cleveland High School prom-~ The dress, the hair, the CAR and the shoes make this picture one to go down in history. These two seriously rocked. 

Send us your prom pics! We love sharing them with our fans and customers.  There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing our dresses in action! Thanks so much to Annie, Alexandra, Claire, Jaclyn and Helen for sharing with us. You all look fabulous!

American Beauty: our summer look book at Portland Rose Garden

 I'd been holding onto a few fabulous vintage rose print dresses for a while waiting for the perfect opportunity to show them off. Then it dawned on me- I live in the city of roses! Portland is home to the  world renowned international test garden for roses for goodness sake! Why not feature these vintage rose print dresses in their natural habitat? So I called my favorite Xtabay model Jade and the rest is history.

Thanks to Cory Burnsed and Jade Sheldon-Burnsed of the blog Endlessly Enraptured for modeling, photographing and styling the shoot. Shot on location at the Washington Park International Test Garden in Portland, OR. You two are brilliant and create beautiful art everywhere you go!

All clothing, shoes and accessories were provided by Xtabay. Thanks for looking.
