Carol Tannenbaums at the Royal Ontario Museum

Some years ago there was a seminar by Carol Tannenbaum on vintage jewellery at the Royal Ontario Museum and those attending were asked to bring one piece of jewellery for Carol's opinion.   I was so excited since I have been collecting for many years and have never sold any of the pieces that are especially nice, since I become very protective to my costume jewellery and use them for display in showcases at the Charity Vintage fashion shows.  Before the day of the seminar I thought long and hard as to what one piece I would bring and I decided that the white milk glass necklace with matching wired bracelet would be the one.  I knew this set was old and I always loved the intricate detail on the decorative pieces.  When after a line up that I thought was endless I finally got to the table in front of Ms. Tannenbaum I handed her the two pieces nicely place in a special box.  She looked at me and said that it was truly lovely and dated it to the early 1960 made in West Germany, and without saying anything else about the jewellery she held in her hand she said that the brooch I was wearing was a valuable brooch since she recognized it as Carved French Baklite. Bakelite was bakelite as far as I knew so this special brooch will sit for many more years until my daughter inherits it.

Reproduction Vintage Dresses from SLV

Not everyone loves vintage clothing. 

As difficult as that is to believe ;-), there are many folks who prefer vintage 'inspired'. New items that have a look of vintage without being used.

I can appreciate that. I have been working on a reproduction vintage line for awhile now, and have just released 3 new designs. Soon to be available in several sizes, these 3 dresses are exact copies from pieces of my personal collection. 

Vintage without the 'old'. These samples now available.

1930s silk gown, reproduction
1950s velvet & taffeta cocktail dress, reproduction

1950s cotton shirtwaist dress, reproduction

1950s and 60s Swim Caps

After finding a super swim cap while on a trip, I've become obsessed with them.  Well, maybe obsessed is a bit strong, but I'm enjoying finding out more and looking at some ads from the 1950s.
I'm also enjoying reading the comments people are leaving about their own swim cap memories, and I'd love to hear about yours!

Rocking Some Rhinestones from the 1950's

D & E Juliana. 1950's Rhinestone Belt-Sarara Vintage
I have taken the time to really admire some amazing 1950's-early 60's rhinestone pieces as of late. Maybe I have been watching to much Alfred Hitchcock Presents circa 1955-56!  I usually prefer the paste stone and earlier pieces.  However; during my recent contact with a 90 year old woman's collection I fell in love. This belt is only one of many such finds! I will be listing some amazing chandelier earrings from her collection and have already listed this stunner of a belt!!  The rare D & E Juliana belt features wonderful stones and golden rope woven, combined together to form this glam design. See it in the shop at Sarara Vintage 1950's Rhinestone Belt.

In terms of 1950's belts, one finds the all rhinestone examples, which are very old hollywood. I sold one recently that was very pretty. However, there is a unique design to this golden belt that caught my eye. The chandelier earrings will be up in the shop soon and are all glass stones! The large multicolor stone bracelet and necklace which have not been photographed yet are simply stunning so check the store in the next few days to get a glimpse of the 1950's collection first!
