The new age, vintage store What Goes Around Comes Around, (WGACA), featured in the 2011 Fall Issue of Community Seeds, sells many Victorian-1930s white cotton and silk dresses made for brides and bridesmaids. These dresses are one of a kind vintage pieces from the Victorian and Edwardian eras through the 1930s or 1940s, which are sold in their retail stores in Soho, NY and Los Angeles, CA. Usually
the brides dresses are white cotton with lace and embroidery, white and cream silk or silk chiffon, and occasionally beautiful tones of nude or a light blush. Not only were the dresses made in the 1930s or 40s, but they were custom made for

the original owner duringthat time period. From being made in the 1930s, the dresses are naturally smaller sizes because of the common practice of wearing corsets during these eras.
As for the lovely bride’s bridesmaids, many vintage cocktail dresses can be worn, each being as unique as the other. Most of the time, the bride will choose other vintage white, cream, or blush dresses for their bridesmaids to wear. But, there is more color in most of the bridesmaid’s dresses, so the bride has the option to not pick a cream color so similar to their wedding dress.

Not only do the women need fabulous dresses, but they need the accessories and the elegant hair do to go with their distinctive dresses. Some of these accessories include vintage rhinestone brooches that can be used in hair up dos to make the look more authentic,and not to mention lovely mesh and beaded Whiting and Davis vintage bags. WGACA has really done their job on bringing back the wonderful style from the time period from the 1930s and 1940s. Sometimes, we now, could barely imagine wearing pieces aging from 80 years ago, but it is a great way to bring the dresses back to life. The vintage-inspired boutique takes pride in all their clothes and antiques they sell, and are doing amazing in their business today.
