Sorry so scarce, lovelies, but I'm in the midst of moving AGAIN, this time into a sweet little 1930s suite! I promise to share more of the details once I'm safely settled :). In the mean-time, here's a little peek I snapped when I did the first walk through (gotta clean that checkerboard floor!!). Anyway, happy holidays!
For the record, I wish the article had only discussed vintage fur (as the journalist had implied), as I do not want to seem to support the buying and wearing of contemporary fur in order to follow Hollywood trends. If one is going to wear fur, my point was: BUY VINTAGE. 'Nuff said.
Ok, wow!!! Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter's 2013 "Baroque" collection is knocking my socks off. Probably because it is clearly drawing on vintage styles and details (namely needlepoint work on handbags & clothing akin to what you see on 20s and 30s 'bohemian' items [and 50s/60s frame purses], and vibrant floral prints which seem drawn from still-lifes painted by the Masters). Luckily, you can find similar vintage purses for much more wallet-friendly versions of these looks. Vintage clothing with such stunning patterning might be harder to come by (though I LOVE this 30s dress) , but Anthro is carrying some items with a similar vibe, like this blouse or this dress, which I sheepishly admit, I got as an early Xmas present from my family when they had their big "black friday" sale. Outfit pics to come!
I DO have some more vintage winter wear posts in the works, but since I found another of these amazing rare 20s cloches for my etsy shop (not listed yet so call dibs if you are quick), I just had to share! Ring a ding ding, non?? These beauties were 'au courant' in 1928, as the video below shows.
