"Bates Motel" is about Murder, but Also the Clothes are Cute

"Bates Motel" is an amazing show I don't think enough people are watching. It's not all over my Facebook newsfeed the way, say "Game of Thrones" is. It's kind of brilliant, the way the show talks to Hitchcock's "Psycho", its source material. It also based on a few books of the same name. Basically, the books and the show try to explain how a boy because an insane, mother-loving murderer-taxidermist.

It's a big question. I hope the writers spend several more seasons explaining it to us because I love this show.

Whats a Gal to Wear to the Jazz Age Lawn Party

Every year we look forward to New York City's Jazz Age Lawn Party, an event Hosted by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, where Governor's Island is transformed for the weekend into a playground for frolicking Flappers and their fellows with great music, dancing, cocktails and more. 
Noble Savage Vintage will again be vending at this fabulous event and can you believe that it is just about two weeks away? My oh my, how time flies. So, what will we all where? 
Here are a few ideas for inspiration for the ladies and also for sale at Noble Savage Vintage on Ruby Lane. 

JUNE 14TH & 15TH
11:00AM to 5:00PM

This is a daytime event, so how about a 1920s day dress in a lovely cotton net lace with a silk liner. Cool and airy for those hot afternoon temperatures. This dress and others, perfect for daytime wear, are available in the shop's 1920's section.

Not all ladies are into dresses, and guess what; you don't have to wear a dress. Knickers were also popular and acceptable for daytime and sporting wear. Paired with a middy, or a crisp cotton blouse, or or maybe raise an eyebrow or two in a saucy little camisole as it will likely be warm. (If this pair of knickers is not your size, you could always try these windowpane plaid linen plus fours in a 29" waist.)

Whether you wear a vintage inspired modern dress or true vintage, Sometimes the perfect authentic period purse can help to set the mood. This early 1930's purse is fabricated in a lovely Nile Blue velveteen with an embossed frame. It's unique frame is double hinged and has a square opening. Sturdy and yes, roomy enough for your i phone. 
This and other flapper friendly purses can be found in the shops Handbags and Purses section. 

Some figures are more flattered by the 1930s silhouettes. Take a look at the 1930s section of the shop for more Jazz Age day dresses in silks and cottons. 
This wheat Print cotton voile dress is a wonderful choice for the day and the necklace pictured can be found in the shops jewelry section

Don't forget to stop by our booth at the Jazz Age Lawn Party. I have so much more coming in in the next few weeks. Hope to see you there.

LOL Fawlty Towers, Maybe the Worst of 70s Fashion

A couple weeks ago, I binge-watched all the episodes of "Fawlty Towers" Netflix had to offer. For those of you who don't know the show, get to know it ASAP. It is absolutely hilarious. John Cleese stars as Basil Fawlty, the grumpy busybody owner of an inn. He and his wife Sybil strive to make their establishment posh with the help of the pretty, young Polly and their Spanish butler and waiter Manuel.

The hijinks of the Fawlty staff keep you in stitches, yes, but their fashion is funny, too. It was the 70s, after all.

This is Mrs. Fawlty. She never met a ruffle she didn't like.
