Fall Inspiration: The Mummy circa 1932 and a Taffeta Gown

                                               
Around the time the leaves start to drop, I get in the mood to watch old films. Some of the best Halloween films are indeed the classics. Recently, I was drawn into the wardrobe of actress Zita Johann  after watching the film, The Mummy starring our heroine as Helen and Boris Karloff, released in 1932. The first time we see Zita, aka Helen she is in a party in the most glamourous 30s metallic floor length gown.  At which time I thought back to the 1930s-40s plaid silk taffeta gown hanging in my office ready to be photographed. (I have had some great 30s gowns, this one I am still dating as it is homespun and maybe 40s). I had sold the late 20s gowns from her collection, but had neglected to list this one. Her collection was a family archive 1880s-1930s. See the construction details, a similar 30s gown archive for sale and further details on the blog link below. The gown is now available here.

I have been in such an old hollywood gown kind of mood, so I wanted to offer some dress inspiration
for the holidays. I have several listed now, two black ones, a lilac 40s piece and the above pictured gown and will be listing more including a great berry toned 1940s gown with gray beading, see the image below. Check out my article on Zita's wonderful wardrobe, see the images and my 1930s dress on the Sarara Vintage Blog

I will leave you with this 1930s black gown, simple but so fun to dress for any holiday even Halloween. Just add dress clips or a rhinestone necklace for new years!

Seasonal Rustic

SEASONAL INSPIRATION


Inspiration is abundant this time of year.  We were particularly inspired by the beautiful deep, rustic colors of Autumn.

Loving the color combination of aubergine with hints of cranberry and champagne as a backdrop to this gorgeous 1940's Crocheted Lace Vintage Wedding Gown done in a cream toned sheer crocheted lace with shirt-maker style neckline and 44 silk covered buttons and loops cascading down the front.  






Other fantastic vintage wedding dresses can be found at http://www.milllcrestvintage.com

50s-60s bag collection

I came across the bag collection of a woman in her 80s. I tried to get the most statement making pieces from her collection.  I particularly liked the graphic houndstooth bag and its oversized design. The huge pink straw circular bag, from around the 60s is such a stunner. While I have other 50s and 60s bags in the shop made from alligator and such these are particularly whimsical created from:  straw, wool fabric, vegan leathers, raffia flowers and bright fabrics.

Check them out here: Sarara Vintage.  I have just listed the large pink one today.
