Dancing (and Accessorizing) With Myself

To counterbalance the recent Yellowfield7 chapeau splash out, I have been trying to focus more on accessorizing the "fix'er-up-'er" frocks I already have.  Example: my $20.00 1930s rayon dress (from Tottie) done two ways.  Oh, before I give the outfit deets: 1)  I am ashamed I forgot Agatha Christie's birthday yesterday.  Just spotted a great "Delicious Death" cake recipe which I might try out as an ode;  2)  don't forget my little impromptu shop credit giveaway ends at midnight EST....  3) Thanks to those of you who have helped spread the word about Fab Gabs' giveaway over at Vixen Vintage.  Pass it on!


Knitted cap: Greetz from Tiz (while listed as a 1950s cap and while also reminiscent of something Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina after her Parisian makeover, I do think it is also very identical to the 30s knitted and crocheted caps I drool over in my knitwear pattern books. I scooped it up as something I can wear everyday, so as to save my Yellowfield7 hat for special occasions.  Re: the cap....I'm making a similar one at the moment, but bought this back up, just in case my crocheting project fails miserably)
1930s oxfords: Etsy
1930s tapestry purse: Etsy


1930s collar and cuffs: Quite Right, Slick
(I think I'm going to wear this to Thanksgiving dinner....very deco pilgrim, non? ;))

thank you!!! Nothing like fashion experimentation on a rainy fall day!

the collar did a great job of hiding some repairs on the shoulders. Those depression dames really knew how to diverse their wardrobes using simple but genius accessories!!!

Definitely love it with the collar and cuffs! I recently got given a stack of knitting patterns and there are a couple from the '30s - I thought of you when I saw them. =D

I love it! I'm so envious of all the '30s stuff you can buy in the US and Canada!
