These sweet girls rocked their victory rolls as they replicated a Vogue cover from 1942. Twelve years we have loved on our oldest and this new year is looking to be a great year for Naomi! #naomirose #victoryrolls #1940shair #1940sclothes

A vintage inspired knitted baby set I have made for my son. He wore it as a new born baby. Now it fits my old celluloid doll.

Yummy sleeve details on a #1940s rhinestone decorated skirt suit. This may be my second favorite suit from my personal collection. (Second to my gray wool 1958 Dior, but it's hard to top that). #NFS #1940sfashion #1940sclothes #1940sstyle #vintagecouture #ohmygodthosefreakinsleeves #vintagefashion #vintageclothing

Today it was FINALLY warm enough to wear this dress I got from @leggoe.land. Thanks Evan! Safe to say it will be worn a lot this spring.

What do you do when you get a new gown? Try and emulate a screen goddess as best as your stupid face will let you, naturally. Dress is a #1940s cream blush gown with strong shoulders, bead detail and a beautiful train at the rear (not visible). #turban is from the beautiful @noaccountingfortaste ❀❀❀
lipstick is a mix of #besamered and #besamenoirred by @besamecosmetics

1945. "Eisenberg Original...White Pastry Swirls Frost a cool summer dress of Roco spun rayon, with the briefest of sleeves and a deep V-neck ending in a soft bow. Wear it in town with the sharp accent of long black gloves, a huge black straw cart wheel". From an ad for Franklin Simon on 5th Ave in New York City. ✨

A lot of times I see people saying that it's hard to find vintage clothes over a certain size,which is true,but it's not impossible.Most of the clothes on this board are a modern size XL and up.I add to it pretty regularly when I research styles on Etsy & Ebay.

I've gotten WAY behind with #thevintagefashionchallenge, so let me kill four birds with one stone. Day 18 (favorite hat) - this is a tough one for me, as you can probably guess. But this beauty from @fabgabs is currently high on my list. Day 17 (floral inspiration) and Day 13 (novelty print) - though it's kind of hard to tell, this dress is printed with teeny tiny daisies and makes my heart pitter patter. Day 14 (makeup essentials) - now that we're in the time of year when it's 92 degrees before breakfast, my go-to makeup routine is a light coat of Besame's Victory Red on my lips and any random dark eyebrow pencil/eyeliner on my brows. That's it! It's too hot for anything else πŸ˜†

Here's the second #1940s hat purchase from the weekend, bright fuschia felt tilt with purple fuschia and chartreuse feathers. I have loads that will go with this so I obviously need it right?!?! πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’–
