Weight Loss in 1937

This is very interesting for all of us vintage lovers.  This is an article that was in a 1937 scrap book of Old Hollywood. This shows a method for weight Loss.  Home version of the vibration machine. This method depends on one wearing that satin bias cut evening gown while performing this task.

Add a Touch of Blue to Your Vintage Wedding Ensemble

Something Old
Something New
Something Borrowed
Something Blue

Adding something blue to your vintage wedding ensemble may seem a little tricky, especially if you want to stay clear of the old standby: the blue ribbon garter option.  To get some of those creative juices flowing, here are some beautiful ways to incorporate “something blue” into your vintage wedding day.

One great way to add that touch of blue, is to accessorize! A blue ribbon velvet sash, blue vintage jeweled shoes or a vintage blue bag are a fun and fabulous way to add a pop of color, while still honoring tradition. 

Another fabulous option is to dress your bridesmaids in blue vintage bridesmaids dresses.  There are great styles to fit nearly every figure and budget.  With a complimentary accessory to add to your own vintage wedding dress, your bridal party will look seamless.

Other fun ways to add “something blue” is to have your name and wedding date embroidered in blue on the inside of your dress or using blue nail polish to jazz up your look!

The options are endless… just remember to have fun with your look!!!

An Affair to Remember, with a late 20s gown!

Late 1920s Burnout, Chiffon and Stone Strap Gown. Sarara Vintage image.
I think the early art deco styles and designs of the 1920s appeal to many people.  I am definitely one of them!  However, I did not really stop to think, on my quest for mint condition 20s clothing (good luck I know...), about how the dress evolved in the end of that period.  Well that is, until I ran across two longer 1920s dresses- one actually a gown! These can often be lumped into the 30s.  Gowns from this period are rarer.  Great florals and exotic prints were king and these two dresses embody that aesthetic.  The longest one, is the gown that inspired me to revisit the dress designs in the mid to late 20s.  Some of Paul Poiret's designs from the late 20s are great for this, as well as ads.  You can find info for his 1920s online archives and more on the late 20s dresses here at my blog:Sarara Vintage Article.

The above are images of the 1920s golden metallic thread and floral chiffon dress, being listed today in the shop.  Also from the same estate, Victorian Jackets. She had family clothing dating from the Victorian-1940s.  I have a beautiful velvet Victorian jacket in great condition in the shop now as well.

Sarara Vintage, Arriving Now: A 1940s-50s One Woman Show

40s-50s Folk Geometric Print Dress, Sarara Vintage
I recently found a entire collection belonging to one woman. Her daughter in law had the complete 40s-50s wardrobe stored away in the attic. I walked up into a era closet everything hanging in zippered garment bags.  As I unzipped them one 1940s-50s dress after another revealed itself, complete with cute little era belts and all! I am currently listing these finds at my shop.  I am in love with the folk country theme of many of them, especially this graphic woven block print dress directly below.

She also had a great little black 50s cocktail dress in the shop now, an amazing 40s silk jacket,belt/dress printed on silk and a Henry Rosenfeld dress, see images below, which are coming soon.
