Why is Everyone Searching for Vintage Prom Dresses this Prom Season?

April 16,2015


Which was the first thing that caught your attention when you landed on this page? Was it the stylish, 60’s-inspired vintage dresses? Or perhaps the characters from Mad Men, the wildly popular show on AMC, which returned for the second half of its seventh (and final) season on April 5th? The producers of Mad Man, as well as other similar shows, pay very close attention to details when creating the Hollywood set and costume designs—from Don Draper’s 1964 Chrysler Imperial Convertible to Megan Draper’s classic shoulder-duster earrings. However, getting these details right is only half the battle if you want to stir a cultural revolution.


Period piece TV shows and films, whose action takes place at a different time to when they were initially broadcast, have been around for decades. Even though they all feature massive budgets, a vast array of Hollywood stars and intricate costumes designs, the opulent styles of the 19th century are still not making a comeback. Take actress Keira Knightly, for instance—she has starred in numerous big-budget period piece films, yet girls are not particularly keen on reinstating the Victorian era-style evening hats as a fashion statement.



We know that it takes more than extravagant designs and classic style icons to move fashion in a particular direction, but what is the piece that we might be missing? To find out, we started by examining what girls are looking for when they are visiting Peaches Boutique for vintage apparel.


As it turns out, “vintage” is simply considered an ambiguous word used to describe a variety of fashion styles in different eras of the twentieth century. The term “vintage dresses” or “retro dresses” can be used to describe everything from a 1960’s two-piece print dress to a classic 1920’s-inspired fitted sequin gown. Mad Men might have paved the way for this new trend of fashion-defining entertainment, but it isn’t the end-all be-all for recurrent fashion.

The awareness for vintage style has increased significantly since the early 1990s, due to its popularity among celebrities and models such as: Kate Moss, Chloë Sevigny, Julia Roberts, etc. More recently, period pieces such as Downton Abbey, gained popularity as its mid-20th century sets and costumes were hugely inspired by the vintage phenomenon.

Over the past decades, fashion designers have constantly looked at previous eras for inspiration, and their iconic garments have been established as significant milestones throughout fashion history. Paul Poiret, Elsa Schiaparelli, Madeleine Vionnet, Jeanne Lanvin, Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Coco Chanel are only a few of the noteworthy fashion designers who have universalized the vintage-inspired style of the 20th century.

Whether we are influenced by mid-20th century productions like Mad Men, or early-20th century TV shows and films like Downton Abbey and The Great Gatsby, it goes without saying that their extravagant sets and costumes have a significant impact on fashion trends. These 20th century styles represent a balance of classy and sexy, while styles previous to this time are considered too conservative and/or too extravagant to be either.


Productions that pay homage to trends of the 20th century typically see massive success from the moment they are released, and their characters become trendsetters and fashion influencers soon after. As it turns out, their audiences are strongly inspired by their favorite characters’ costumes, and do not miss a chance to recreate the sophisticated atmosphere depicted in the shows.

Do you think girls would be persistently pursuing 60’s-inspired prom dresses and accessories if Mad Men was not a success? That depends:  Do you think that girls in the 90’s would have sported layered haircuts if it were not for Rachel Green, Jennifer Aniston’s iconic character in the TV series Friends?

Peaches Boutique sells a wide variety of vintage look alike prom dresses. Check out some of our most popular styles below:

Counterfeit Dresses

March 26,2015

If it’s too good to be true chances are it’s not true.



Help us stop the Counterfeit websites from selling knock off dresses by reporting them.  Knock off dresses are created and sold with the intent to defraud customers.  Every year we get hundreds of young girls who have been lied to and cheated by a fraudulent online retailer, selling them poorly made dresses.  These websites illegally take an Image from the designer or a designer’s retailer web page and sell poorly made prom dresses in sweat shops using child labor in china. If you see a dress for 500$ in a couple of stores and see it online for 250$ chances are you are not getting the designers dress. It has become more and more frequent for young girls to buy their prom dress from these counterfeit online websites.


Few examples of Counterfeit dresses


 Peaches Boutique offers you the following tips:

  • Website use images of authentic designer dresses to insure unexpecting buyers for that deep discount
  • The “contact us” page should provide a phone number and address (preferably within the US) not just an email, for customer service.
  • The designer makes the dress in certain amount of colors and the less expensive website can make it in 20
  • The counterfeit web site can make the dress exactly to the measurements you desire.
  • Designer’s do not make custom fit dresses
  • The dress is being shipped out from china not from the US (designers are based in the US)

How to find authorized dealers?



Find the designers website and utilize the “Store Location” for a list of retailers authorized to sell the dresses. If the web site store is not listed, then beware that they are not selling true designer gowns.

Oscars Red Carpet Look

February 27,2015

Alright ladies! Who watched the Oscars this year? I can’t lie, I did not watch the Oscars, however, I did make sure I saw who wore what on the red carpet! I must say there were some truly opulent styles strutting down the red carpet this year. For prom goers, the Oscars come at just the right time. What a perfect way to get some fashion inspiration before heading to Peaches Boutique and finding that perfect dress for your 2015 prom! I am going to share some of my personal favorite red carpet styles and show you a few red carpet worthy gowns that you could wear to your prom this year.

This year red carpet host Giuliani Rancic wore not 1 but 2 stunning gowns. Rancic looked ravishing in both gowns however the long sleeve gown she wore looked absolutely phenomenal. If you want to steal this glamorous long sleeved look we have a dress that can help you do just that.

Take a look at MacDuggal dress style 62062M. This gown is a lovely lace detailed long sleeve gown that gives off the look of luxury. This gown showcases a high illusion neckline and illusion long sleeves which are adorned with just the right amount of scattered lace applique. The back of the dress is exposed which gives this dress the perfect combination of sophisticated and sexy. We love this gown in Ivory/Nude however this dress also comes in Red and Aqua/Nude. You can not go wrong with wearing this lavish lace gown by MacDuggal.


Another favorite was Gwyneth Paltrow’s gorgeous one sleeve gown. I think this dress was one of my favorite styles because of the color. The blush color of her dress reminds my of my favorite season, spring! Here is a dress by Shail K that gives off that same look. Shail K dress style 3920 is a gorgeous jersey material gown which features a V-cut neckline, long sleeves, and a thigh high slit. This gorgeous pale pink dress gives off such a soft and dainty look that embraces a sweet feminine style. The back of the dress adds just the right amount of sexy edginess as it features a stunning cowl back with a beaded back strap. Shail K dress style 3920 would make an alluring dress style for this years 2015 senior prom.

2nd dress

Who doesn’t love a fitted red dress? Better yet, a lacy fitted red dress! Rosamund Pike wore an absolutely stunning red gown to the Oscars. If you really want to stand out from the crowd in a striking red dress that is similar to the one that red carpet star Rosamund wore, here is a great option! Check out this gorgeous Milano Formals dress style E1754. This Milano Formals dress is a captivating red strapless gown made of lace applique and tulle. This lacy gown hugs your curves at just the right places to give your that desired hourglass figure. Compared to Rosamund’s red dress this gown does not have a slit, but it does have a sheer tulle skirt. We love this fashion forward trend as it is a new take on a slinky touch to a skirt other than the typical thigh high slit. You can not go wrong with this sensational style!

What you want is for you and your dress to be the perfect match by finding the dress that fits your shape the best will have you glowing in beauty. Peaches’ has a few tips that will help you find the perfect dress for your shape!


If you have a small waist, try going fitted on the top and looser at the bottom to accentuate the comparison between your bust and waist. Try to avoid a full fitted style. This Sherri Hill Style 4308 is perfect style for an Hourglass shape.



If you are a runner and have a very small frame your style will definitely be a fitted dress. Try avoiding flowy dresses since they will make your shape vanish behind all that material. Show you shape off with a fitted dress like this Jovani style 90640, it will be perfect for your body style.




Stop hiding behind all that fabric! We have found the perfect style for you. Many girls with an apple shape tend to hide by covering up as much as they can. Show off your legs if you can.  The best styles for you would be A-line, empire waist dresses, or dresses that have waist bands. Try to reduce attention from the middle area of your body. Looking for something short? This Short La Femme Dress style 18177  is a great style.  If looking for a full length dress, this Long Blush Dress Style 9726 is also a lavishing dress.



Being Busty can sometimes be annoying by not being able to find the perfect fit for you. We can definitely help you find the perfect style for you. In order to proportion the bust with the rest of your body try to avoid short dresses since it will make your top look heavier, as well as strapless dresses, or dresses with very thin straps as they will not give you much support. Darker colors are usually the best choice for girls who are busty since they are more slimming. Halter necklines, High necklines, as well as dresses with thicker straps would be the best style for you. Showcasing this long Sherri Hill style 11151 with enough support on the top to have you in comfort all night long.



Having a pear shape means that your hips are larger than your bust. What you need to do in this case is to accentuate the bust so it can proportion out with your hips. Don’t want any alterations? Avoid fitted dresses since you will have to get a bigger size due to your hips and would have to alter the top.  Here are some styles that will fit well with your body style. Designer blush has this gorgeous two piece dress style 9916 (Left) as well as style 9934 (right).



Think there is nothing out there for you?  Think again don’t lose hope because everything seems so big around you. Just follow the rules for the body type on the dresses above.  Always remember shorter dresses are always best for a petite person. If you are set on a long style  alterations are always an alternative, there is an invariably amount of options out there for you. Check out this short  fitted Mori Lee dress Style 9296 or this long flowy style 21144 which has a high neckline and gives an illusion of a longer torso giving your body a longer illusion.
