Thrift Inspiration, Halston Style

I finally watched Sex and the City 2 on DVD one evening last week and I just adored all the Halston Heritage dresses, here is their cocktail pleated dress:

Of course, Carries purple one is just lovely and an ideal summer dress:

I was pleased to find this vintage Radley pleated cocktail dress, which is very similar to the Halston Heritage version above, my one is a midi length and has a gold rose detail to the hemline.

It was only £7 in the RSPCA charity shop and if I don't get much wear from it over the Christmas and New Year season, I will wear it a lot as a summer evening dress next year, so a very versatile buy and another piece of vintage, very Studio 54 inspired.

What style of dresses are inspiring you for Summer 2011?

I adore the Halston Heritage collection I got one of the V neck dresses for my graduation. Your right about Radley being equally disco fabulous I have a vintage Radley which is a silver halter neck with purple flowing skirt, love your new find too!
