Welcome to Visible Monday #13! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.
Some of my readers have commented that they are vintage clothing lovers, and wouldn’t mind seeing some of my vintage dresses, on my vintage self (well, they didn’t say that part). So today we’ll do Visible Vintage!
Here is a pale peach 1940’s day dress that I have worn to work and to some social events. Somehow, it has grown smaller over the years, as the ghostly closet re-sizers must have had their way with it! So it will soon go to the consignment shop or up on eBay.
It’s a lovely heavyweight, silky fabric, not sure whether it’s nylon or a blend. I love the details at the front waist and the metal side zipper; these are classic 40’s touches. And the heavy plastic buttons, so retro.The dresses of the mid-to-late 1940’s are very flattering to most frames, and the silhouette has been revived many times.
|I love thinking that someone wore this dress before I was born!
Shoes are Kenneth Cole Reaction
Linking to Spunky Chateau for Thrifting Day!
