Over a Dozen New Etsy Vintage Listings!


Ah...the good ol' days...Maxine hails a cab and heads downtown to her office job - she slips into the elevator and quickly powders her nose in its mirrored walls...she feels confident and powerful in her *stunning* and RARE three-piece outfit by the famous Henry-Lee! Time to make coffee for that demanding boss of hers...

This outfit includes a dress, jacket, and coordinating belt - the dress features a tobacco-brown bodice with a spiffy tie at the neckline, and the skirt is done in a textured heavy poly knit of brown, blue, and white. The coordinating jacket is done in the same pattern as the skirt, and boasts gorgeous soutache trim down the bodice, on the pockets, and on the sleeves (see photos). One of the sharpest features on this outfit is the navy blue shiny belt - it has no holes so it's completely adjustable for comfort, and it can be worn on the dress or outside the jacket!

The only issue with this outfit is that one of the buttons on the left wrist (see pic 2) is missing its little gold "ring" but other than that, it's still in excellent vintage condition!

This outfit is marked a vintage size 16, and in my estimation it could fit a modern 10/12, but please refer to all measurements listed below:

Shoulders: 15"
Bust: Open - no buttons
Waist: Open - no buttons
Hip: Open - no buttons
Sleeve: 22"
Length: 24.5"

Shoulder: 16"
Bust: 20" (double)

Belt: 38.5" long
