Wednesday Wishlist :: LABEL LOVE // Wondrous Wenjilli

About 6 years ago, when I first started selling vintage clothing online via Ebay I found this AMAZING dress that I have regretted selling ever since. It was dark brown metallic knit, long, and form fitting. It also had this tiny peek-a-boo crocheted area on the bodice that I thought was especially lovely. I made it a point at the time to remember the label WENJILLI because I loved the dress so much! Yes, that dress was unforgettable and as a matter of fact ended up being one of my best sales on Ebay. Recently, I was wishing I had a picture to show you guys, when I thought, "OF COURSE! I bet I'll find one on Etsy!" :)

I would love to know more about the background and history of the label Wenjilli, but the only thing I've really found out through researching online is that these dresses were made in Hong Kong in the 1970's.

Aren't they just gorgeous?

I love the copper color & cowl neck on this one from seller
