Thanks to Swing Fashionista for mentioning the Jaloux Gallery, where you can virtually flip through issues of french fashion magazine L'Officiel de la Mode dating back to the 20s, 30s and beyond. I spent WAY too much time on there today perusing the 1933-35 issues. SWOON! Interestingly, one of the first images I encountered was of a French Baroness with her dog. Hmmm....does anyone believe in reincarnation ;) Oops, sorry Baronne, I somehow screen capped a cursor right in the middle of her. Accident (or Baroness to Baroness sabotage?) There were just so many breathtaking images I didn't know which to choose. Lots of Chanel and Schiaparelli (such as last image). My favourite has to be the woman in the second picture. One of the most beautiful faces I've ever seen. Okay, off to swoon again.
Music I'm Listening To: Nouvelle Vague's version of Depeche MODE's "Just Can't Get Enough"!

Not only do I love polka dots but I am a huge fan of other graphic printed vintage fabric (esp. white on black). More Myrna to illustrate: large checks. Of course the adorable chapeaus and neck bows only add to my adoration of these looks.

Oh, as you can tell, I've fallen hard for mid-30s fashion. I'll always have a spot in my heart for late 30s/early 40s wartime style, but I think I've found my vintage niche. I'll take one of each of these delicious coats, please, Santa!
