Imagine gliding around the house in these, wearing your newest peignoir and gown or a lovely hostess ensemble. At-home leisure wear became a significant part of many North American and European women’s wardrobes in the 1900’s. In the mid-century decades when movies gained popularity sophistication and glamour were very important to the average gal.
These are so much fun! Platform shoes have always been a favorite of mine (since they came out in a fashion revival for the 3rd or 4th time in history!) For me, nothing can beat 1940’s and early 1950’s footwear. And, to find a pair in excellent condition is always a dream come true.
Although these are a decade or two older than the hostess gowns I’ve found lately, their classic elegance would make them wearable with either of them. That’s the beauty of the best . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
