Recently had my prescription put into vintage frames, and then found this adorable 1950s eye glass holder yesterday. 😍

For those who missed my stories a few weeks ago I found a piece of this 1930s Mexican theme fabric that is shown in the next photo on a gal from the 1939 National Geographic magazine. I had the amazingly talented @allure_original_styles make me a late 1930s style dress out of it. I paired it with a 1940s wood sombrero bracelet I've had for a while and its perfect. ☺❀ #1930s #30s #1930sfashion #truevintage #vintagefashion #1930sdress #noveltyprint #vintage #vintagestyle #1940s #40s #1940sfashion #1940sdress #40sdress #30sdress #1930sstyle

Wearing a 1930s/40s style sweater I had commissioned by the talented @sallybeevintageknittingsewing who did an incredible job. 😍 Wearing it with a 1940s skirt with the best waistband and a 1940s striped purse. β€πŸ’›πŸ’™ #1930s #1940s #40s #1940sfashion #1930sfashion #30s #vintage #vintagefashion #truevintage #wiw #ootd #fallfashion #vintagesweater #vintagestyle #stripes

It's a "be naked as you possibly can" kind of temperature day. β˜€οΈ

I love when an outfit comes together and feels so 1939. 😍

This late 1930s top was a rescue project, but it came out splendidly. Its pink crepe and the front panel is rayon jersey with decorative stitch detail on either side. Whoever made it was creative! I'll post a close up in my Stories. ❀
