These are the perfect shoes to be worn with the wedding suit shown yesterday.  Can you imagine a pair of white satin pumps at least 60 years old staying in this condition?  Who knows how long they were out of the original owner’s safekeeping?  Amazing!!   I found these beautiful fabric shoes clean enough to be worn again as is.

Fun ’40’s/’50’s styling and beautiful leather soles that make them good forever.  They also carry a mysterious story of a very special and formal occasion.  I wonder where and when it was . . . . .

CLASSIC GARAY EVENING CLUTCH FROM THE 1950’S

So many clutch purses are made today in vintage styles, but there’s nothing like the quality and attention to detail found in true vintage examples.  I’ll ALWAYS go for those instead!  I love rigid handles that can be folded inside the purse to hide and beautiful satin fabric covering is always elegant and versatile.  Two compartments inside with a see-through vinyl divider is so practical, too.

This Garay handbag is elegant and probably never carried.  There is a bit of storage wear, but the inside is absolutely perfect.  Sigh – another happy escapade!

NEW FIND!  TRUE VINTAGE BLACK SATIN EMPIRE - STYLE GOWN FROM THE SIXTIES

From sometime in the Sixties, this formal gown was custom – made in a very heavy but fluid satin material that drapes beautifully. So simple and elegant, it cascades to the floor with only a bit of shoulder detail and a lot of style.

At the shoulders, straps fasten in front with a large button and loop. Otherwise, the dress closes in the back with a metal zipper. The waistline dips to the natural waist in back but sweeps up to an empire style just under the bust – line in front.

A bit big for me, but Madge carries it well and it will be very easy to alter. What better way to add a gorgeous and well – made wardrobe staple to my closet!
