TRUE VINTAGE BOBBIE BROOKS MINI – SHORTS FROM THE 1950’S: “We wear short shorts”

TRUE VINTAGE BOBBIE BROOKS MINI - SHORTS FROM THE 1950'S

Here’s the tell-tale zipper in the back waistline. VERY rare find!  One of my wonderfulest discoveries.

The tailoring is impeccable and they’re in almost perfect condition.

Be careful – modern copy-cats just don’t measure up . . . . . . . … . . . . .

NEW FIND!! TRUE VINTAGE 1960’S MINI CULOTTES BY BOBBIE BROOKS

IMG_3546

The Bobbie Brooks company has been a fabulous maker of classic sportswear for many decades and their true vintage items are very special – well-designed and made to a high standard.  I always do a flip when I find one!

This “skort” is summer-perfect – dressier than shorts, easier than a mini-skirt (no ugly and ungainly exposures and attempts to avoid them), cool and FUN.  100% cotton!!

I love and discover all types and makes of true vintage fashion, but a high-quality brand name is always an extra plus.

TRUE VINTAGE EARLY 1960’s SPRING JACKET IN NAUTICAL COLORS

TRUE VINTAGE EARLY 1960s SPRING JACKET IN NAUTICAL COLORS

Red, white and blue have been popular color combinations, especially in Spring & Summer, for many decades.  Patriotic for some countries, but usually associated with a boating theme, in all kinds of clothing and accessories.

Lightweight jackets are always a must-have for Spring, Summer and Fall weather.  This one has that classic look that goes over skirts and dresses, slacks, jeans and shorts.   I was glad to come across it because I didn’t have one similar.

Yes, there are lots of modern jackets sold now that look like this one at first glance and Bobbie Brooks is still a modern label.  What makes this one different?   It was certain things about the material and the cut that told me, for sure.  That is a skill I have learned which makes the “hit” rate high for me and multiplies the fun I have!

The magic and mystery are a daily thing for me, because you just never know what will turn up . . . . . . .
