FLORIDA FEET!

FLORIDA FEET!

Gotta have for summer!  Original vintage low-heeled pumps found in the Miami area. From the late Sixties – early Seventies. One pair more casual, one pair a bit dressy.
Both a little bit mod . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

1950’s PIN-UP SWIMSUIT FOR A VALENTINE’S DAY PHOTO

1950's PIN-UP SWIMSUIT FOR A VALENTINE'S DAY PHOTO

Bored in Miami?   Snowbound in your photography studio?  How about livening things up with a little vintage cheesecake?

Look at those cups on this classic ’50’s Jantzen maillot!  If you didn’t have the figure, these suits would do their best to give it to you.

I’ll bet you can think of all sorts of ways to pose in this bubblegum pink cutie, and with all the necessary accessories.

Snowstorms –  That’s why your mother wanted you to learn how to play by yourself.

Valentine’s Day –  That’s why it’s good to know how to play nice with others . . . . .

FABULOUS FIFTIES SUNGLASSES IN THEIR OWN CASE

IMG_3487

I love these so much – perfect for the bright, hot days coming up very soon!  This pair has an elegant, classic touch along with the strong kitchy vintage vibe.  Pretty etched design on the metal, with a few rhinestone touches.

The case is hard, with a fabric cover and ornamental clasp.  They both are, of course, true vintage and well-made.  Fun!

FASHIONABLE FOOTWEAR FROM FIFTIES FLORIDA – TRUE VINTAGE 1950’S

IMG_0854 More “black & white”. From the fab Fifties, these heels with clear vinyl on the uppers are iconic 1950’s and iconic Miami Beach. Well-constructed in leather, of course.

Notice the maker’s name on one shoe and the name of the store that sold them on the other.

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 . .. . …

TRUE VINTAGE FLORIDA FROCK FROM THE SUNSHINE STATE

TRUE VINTAGE FLORIDA FROCK FROM THE SUNSHINE STATE

Carrying on with sunny colors, this lovely dress was custom – tailored of citrus – hued silk, with a soft, silky lining. The sleeveless drop-waist styling harks back to the 1920’s but, I believe, it was made in the Sixties.

Back closure of the torso with hooks and eyes and a short zipper at the waist. Below-the-knee hem . . . . . . . . .

From a specialty shop in the Orange State, a breezy rayon blouse in citrus pastels. I love finding true vintage items with the labels of specialty shops in them because they are always unique and of high quality.
