Do you always lose your bangles because they are too loose? Our Maiden bangles are just a smidge smaller so they fit the daintier wristed folk perfectly!

Occasionally, I don’t wear hats! Trying out a Hedy Lamarr inspired hair style today with massive floof locks thanks to cold temps.
This outfit is a vintage knit dress under a belted duster vest. Born of necessity (I’m cold!) but I love the combination so much.
The Miss Fisher film premier today with @emilychristina92 & @zo_renee. The movie was the perfect blend of comedy and satisfying endings. We also swung by the Camberwell Sunday Market and nabbed original 40's ad artwork for Myers. Perfect day out!

I love everything about this photo. She looks so relatable.... And her hairstyle and clothing are wonderfully quintessential 1940's.

I'm definitely a suit fan - especially in that gorgeous bottle green! What about you? #Repost @thehouseoffoxy

40s vs 50s...the sleek suit or the nipped in shift dress? #vintagefashion #1940sfashion… https://www.instagram.com/p/B81r-p0AGg7/?igshid=9c0oxszvs8w1 …
Progress! I recently decided I wanted build a wardrobe completely with handmade items. I finished the skirt from the Simplicity 8462 1940s Vintage pattern today using some wool fabric I had on hand. I chose to hand stitch the skirt and jacket but I may switch to my machine for the shirt. I think my zipper ended up a bit wonky, so I may pull it out and try again on the machine. Still trying to figure out if I want to line it.
The skirt pattern was incredibly easy to follow and I am going to make a few more because I love the look. #sewingproject#simplicity8462#vintagestyle#1940sfashion#handsewing#handstitched#seamstress
Just listed - pics don’t do this sultry 1940s silk velvet dress any justice... check out the inset lace, faux pockets and an arrow point at the derrière with cascading gathers.

✨ For sale ✨
Wounded bird from the 1940s. Sold as is.
The dress is very bleached. Has a rectangular shape on left side of chest. 2 pinholes at front of the skirt and the same on the back. Stain on the back of right shoulder. A loose seam under left sleeve. The dress has metal zipper, thick shoulder pads and belt with sequin. Belt closes with push-buttons and hooks and eyes.
Very hard to get exact measurements since the dress seems to have a very weird fit. The shoulder pads may be moved to fit. The bodice is quite long so the dress needs to be worn by someone tall. The skirt is very wide.
An absolutely fabulous dress! Maybe it can be dyed... or worn as it is....or for a costume party.... or a play....or....✨
