Dress in detail. Close up of my 1920s style ribbon work on my 18th century gown. The flowers are made from vintage ribbons from the 20s 30s 40s and 50s. All of them were overdyed to create a subtle shading. Dying the velvet was especially tricky so as not to hurt the nap. Some of my favorites are the small silver woven metal ones that were duplicated from a piece of ribbon work in my collection. The purple flowers are topped with metal bullion. An aside= The organza check of my dress lines up everywhere it’s possible to ;). I mention this because it look much much longer to cut the dress than it seems at first glance. 📷 by @phillipvn
Imagine my surprise at finding a bra in Dorothy's 1928 scrapbook (book 2 of 7). I haven't found an explanation for it yet, but hopefully it's mentioned somewhere. The note in the center reads, "Dear Dorothy, Please don't forget to remember to bring the cards and your picture. -Mike."
So I was going to post this and ask someone to buy it so I wouldn’t then a quick Google search told me that Hermes (depicted) is the god of writers and language which is apparently all I needed to know as a writer to justify buying jewelry I don’t really need. But this piece is divine! From the snakes to the wings to the beautiful green jewel to Hermes’ face! I just don’t know what to say about it. The seller Aux Quatrefeuilles believes it’s 1920s art nouveau. It’s just so ornate and maximilist and freaking sexy. This is the sexiest necklace I’ve ever seen. And now it’s mine. 😂 hopefully this writing God will help me finish my damn novel. Wondering what’s on sale this weekend or want to share a sale of your own? Check out the Black Friday post from yesterday! Let’s work together to make it a Broke Saturday! 🙌 #1920s#1920sdress#1920sfashion#vintageclothing#vintagegirl#vintagedress#vintage.
