I was reminded,while reading my vintage Seventeen Magazine, that one of the greatest fashion statements of the 1940's is THE SHOES!!!
This is the only pair from the 40's from my personal collection. I love the navy ,the ankle strap,and especially the little platform.
Can you imagine grabbing any of these beauties for 2.99?
If you've been on the Vintage Re-mix site you know exactly how much this style has appreciated in price!
Black suede "Thickies"(the name makes me giggle and blush) for 3.99?
Here is my version,that I purchased from an antique mall last fall for about 2 dollars! They are actually from the seventies,the 70's doing the 40's. I call them my beautiful/ugly shoes. They would feel right at home featured on this site,its my new guilty blog-pleasure.
I would adore some of these high-heeled beauties.
...and hats,the 40's gave us some wonderful chapeaus.
Hmmmm I wonder what could be in this charming box?
Its my own wonderful little hat,also from Betmar. Remember the story about the mother of one of my best male buds,who gave me Puccis? This exotic appertif is also from her. I have never actually worn it. She told me the fur was REAL leopard. I am afraid I've just never been comfortable doing anything but admiring it in private.
This forest green number is a semi-recent thrift acquisition,and most definitely from the 40's.
This lovely is by a modern independent millinery artist. I love the music notes and the flat pancake/disc shape.
Linda Evangilista and Kyle MacLachlen no how to sport a topper!
More 40's fashion.
John Galliano doing the 40' as only he can ,complete with crazy Norma Desmond models.What a busy and spectacular weekend I had! I created several new pieces for my ETSY and a couple of fall goodies for my baby. I completely re-arranged her room which I have needed to do for months, I think I will do a photo shoot in her room showing off my new creations,perhaps later today!Lastly I still managed to have time to dash into my favorite thrift store this weekend,I only had a few minutes to look,but I had to pop in anyway. I found this most amazing blue lace dress from the 50's for 3.49 !!!!! It was missing its slip,but honestly,who needs a slip when you have skinny jeans. The promise of cooler weather seems to have invigorated me. See you later this week.
