Vecona Vintage – 1930s style

Some of of the beautiful 1930s loungewear inspired items that Vecona Vintage carry in their range. I want them all!! The sailor pants are especially gorgeous. I wish more companies would start doing the ‘low rise’ cut in ladies trousers again. So much more stylish and comfortable. The ‘Cap Calloway’ cap is also a winner!

A 1930s Christmas…

Another year has flown by and I have not posted as much as I would like. In 2015 I will have more time, so be prepared for vintage goodness again en masse. But for now, here are some of my favourite festive images from the 1930s.

Prohibition Clothing Company…hats

Last year I blogged about The Prohibition Clothing Company and featured some of their wonderful items. I recently went back to their website to discover they have more caps and some new promotional pics. I thought I’d share them with you here today.

For those new to PCC, they have hats and caps, back-belted jackets, trousers, plus-fours, shirts, vests, bow-ties and some great stuff like a leather book strap and vintage style tote bag. You can check out The Prohibition Clothing Company’s wares here: http://www.prohibitionclothing.com/

1930s Sunglasses 2

I have noticed lately that there are quite a lot of repro 30s/40s styled frames popping up in different shops. I recently bought a white framed pair from Dotti of all places. I love the look of 1930s rounded/ovalish sunglasses with celluloid frames and have collected quite a few pairs over the years. The white frames ones are my favourite (seen below worn by Bette Davis – and LOVE her outfit). Glad to see this style coming back as mainstream fashion as I really do detest the  oversized sunglasses that are popular at the moment.

Book: Vintage Bridal Fashion 1900 – 1950

If you are lover of vintage fashion and tying the knot, you may want to wear a vintage or ‘vintage inspired’ gown from your favourite era. Bridal Fashion 1900-1950 – The American Wedding dress (Kathleen York, Shire Publications, $13.40 at Booktopia) takes readers on an elegant journey back in time through American bridal fashion from the first half of the 20th Century marking the changes that economics, popular culture, and even politics have made to style over the years.

 

Vintage Beauty Icons 1: Carole Lombard

I just adore this woman!! She lived and breathed style. From the 1920s right through to her death in 1942 she was stunningly beautiful. If I could magically achieve any look from the 1930s – hers would be it!

   

    

    

   

    

     

    

   

     

    

   

     

Amazing 1927 photo – colourised!

This has to be one of the coolest photos from the 1920s I have ever seen. Thanks to the guys at Shorpy’s for putting this out there 🙂

RIP Patty Andrews, 1918 – 2013

Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of swing-era vocal group the Andrews Sisters (and the center sister in the photo below), died today of natural causes. She was 94. A beautiful lady with a golden voice.

‘Bounce Me Brother With a Solid Four’ will always be my fav of their songs. Thought I’d post the clip here. Not the mention that we get to see Jewel McGowan and Dean Collins dance. 🙂

From the late Thirties through the Forties, the Andrews Sisters produced one hit record after another. Patty Andrews is in the centre
