1920s Purple felt cloche hat. Oh yeah, I’d look ridiculous in it (cloches just aren’t a good look for me), but that doesn’t mean I don’t lust after it.
Shoes this week. Because everything is always all about shoes. So I give you these – a gorgeous pair of Thayer McNeil’s from the 1940s. Called “The Foot Saver Shoe”, they were meant to be both sensible and attractive. What a novel concept! I love the little covered button and top -stitching details. Adorable.
Back to the ’50s this week with a great dress at Enokiworld (I love this site and they’re based in St. Louis so I just have things shipped to my parents’ house to make things cheaper for me). Fun, flirty, feminine, and totally out of my price range (we’re obviously overlooking the fact that I have the shoulders of a linebacker and therefore 15″ from shoulder to shoulder would barely fit one of my shoulders…), this dress is fantastic. And making me alliterate.
This week the vintage find is a lovely little 1940s pouch bag with bright flowers. The flowers and celluloid frame give it an innocence and sweetness that would make any outfit playful. The print itself would coordinate well with quite a few wardrobe options and the pouch style would look great casual or a bit dressier. It’d look especially great paired with some brightly colored wedges. And it still has its matching mirror case. I’m in love.
