Fourteen Future Fashions from the 30s and Some of My Knitwear Ladies

When I am not blogging, updating my shop, sleuthing for vintage, or out exploring local sights, I'm usually lost in one of my 1930s booklets.  Here is a sample of some of the ladies the Baroness likes to gaze longingly at.  Moreso than any other source, I get my fashion and vintage style inspiration from these confident and well-heeled gals. Sorry for the rather sketchy quality of some of them. It appears my scanner does not feel compatible with my newish computer, so am having to photograph images while I try to reconcile the technological issues.

Great images! For a second I thought you had put yourself on the cover!

Good God, I love these, but I must have a masochistic nature for exposing myself so much to stuff that LOVE, WANT, but can't get my hands on...

garofit said...

thanks for uploading all this by the way! love them all and would probably be tempted to commit bad things for the second, the forth and the last! Biggest SIGH ever...

Wow, the sixth one is so lovely! Her hair is perfect.

Soo lovely! I have a friend here in LA that does 30s style crocheting--she says it would take MONTHS of work to make a dress...although I still bug her about a swap all the time!

Oh, and I found this on etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/43174989/1930s-crochet-blouse-and-skirt-suit someone needs to buy it so I won't!!

And, of course, here is one in my Etsy shop, though I think it is slightly later than the ones in the images above...

And nudeedudee - that white suit *swoon*. I am so tempted to spend all my birthday money on it!
