TRUE VINTAGE ROBES AND DRESSING GOWNS FROM THE  LATE 1930'S - 1940'S

We’ve done a little film noir leisure dressing for the men, so here are 3 of my very favorite women’s things of the same era.  The fabulous ’30’s robe with shoulder pads and tassels, the cute little wartime rayon dressing gown and the glam  ’40’s rayon dressing gown.  Hollywood movie star all over!

Imagine Veronica Lake or Joan Crawford sweeping into the room. Deanna Durbin would look sweet in that dressing gown.

I like to recline in one of these while sipping a cognac and reviewing the latest assignment. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ANOTHER TRUE VINTAGE WRAP-AROUND DRESS BY SWIRL

ANOTHER TRUE VINTAGE WRAP-AROUND DRESS BY SWIRL

Remember the red wrap-around by Swirl that I showed a few days ago? Here’s another of their creations, in the same basic design but with a very different feel.

Embroidered white flowers on china blue. It’s another one that I love and is so wearable.

These casual day dresses are some of the best things to find because they don’t require a “special occasion” to wear them and don’t need a lot of careful handling. My closets are full of dresses like this and I enjoy them daily!

Some of the most valuable things don’t have to be kept in a safe . . . . . . . . . . ..

TRUE VINTAGE ’50’S DRESS BY RUBY’S OF MIAMI

TRUE VINTAGE '50'S DRESS BY RUBY'S OF MIAMI

Here’s a REAL favorite of mine – straight from the ’50’s and Miami, Florida, no less! I really feel an attitude when I put this on.

It’s a heavy cotton or cotton blend material. There is almost a brassiere sewn into the front of the bodice, so no need to fuss about the right undergarments.

On top of that, it even has sewn-in bloomers below! That must be because the front of the skirt has a wrap-around effect. Very interesting! That’s why Madge couldn’t model this one, either, and it will be a little full-figured for Stella, but we’ll try.

I wonder who made the garments for some of these small shops that had their own labels – did they have seamstresses or did they buy small lots from wholesalers?
Anybody know anything about this?

It’s another mystery that has been perplexing me for some time . .. . . . . . . . . . . .
