Friday! Foliage!

Just a little outfit pic from today.  Went to a vintage fair and got some great goodies for the shop!  The leaves are just starting to turn now. Delish!  In retrospect, I think I wore a bit too much brown, but I wanted the background to stand out.  Oh, yes, those ARE the 30s shoes that used to be in my shop.  Oops, I stole them back again.  :)

Midnight in the Garden

This post was originally going to be centred around this 30s lace gown I'm trying to decide whether to keep or not, but I must admit I am shaken and saddened by the news that Diane, the founder and editor of Zelda Magazine passed recently. She was 31.  I never met this kindred deco dame in person (though I had had hopes of attending one of her Club Wit's End gatherings in NYC this winter), but she was the epitome of friendliness and generousity in our online exchanges.  Thanks for the inspiration, D. You will be missed, bright, beautiful spirit.

Brick by Brick

Considering Season Two of Boardwalk Empire airs tonight, it seems appropriate that I visited Toronto's Distillery district today.  In a word: FABULOUS! Particular favourites: Balzac's Coffee House and Soma Chocolate!!

Sharing the 30s Love

Hello!!  Forgive me for appearing to have fallen into a virtual rabbit hole lately. I've just been feeling a distinct lack of blog motivation.  Luckily, several wonderful bloggers have posted some fabulous 30s fashion delights recently. Check out:

Hats: Seeing Double!

Hello, dear bloggers! It seems like ages since I've posted! Forgive me, as I've had a kind of blogger's block.  Oh, well, I have a moment now, so thought I would post about the two Etsy hats I spotted that seem to be the twins of a 30s cap I crocheted last year.  CUTE, non?

Chocolate Mint

Before I fell ill at the end of my L.A. trip, I had intended on wearing this little "chocolate mint" plaid jumper ensemble I had had custom made for the vacation.  30s style jumper/suspender skirt by Time Machine Vintage, 30s style blouse by NudeeDudee.

Queen Mary: Focus on Fashion and Friends

Back from the Art Deco Weekend on the Queen Mary, which was a sight to behold! Unfortunately, I fell ill on the Sunday, so I missed the last day, but still had some very special moments with a dear friend.   Now, a quick glimpse at some of the outfits I wore and people I met.  I didn't get to wear all my QM outfits, which just may mean future fashion posts starring them!
