TRUE VINTAGE 1940’S DRESS CLIPS – FOR THAT UPTOWN LOOK . . .

IMG_0988     I love these jewelry items so much!  Some might be earlier than Forties, too.  If you’re not familiar with them they have a snap clip that attaches them to the neckline of a dress, sweater, jacket or coat.

Only the ones on top are small enough to wear on a lightweight dress – the others would only work on wool or heavy knit as they are quite substantial in size and weight.  Very popular items during the wartime and post-war years and these are costume jewelry, without precious metals or stones.

To me, the look is feminine and dashing at the same time.  That so much epitomizes the 1940’s woman who really developed a lot of strength during the second World War.  We were never the same after that . . . . .
