Marilyn wearing anything is fantastic but a pair of jeans and a little Edwardian style blouse....perfect! If you haven't seen River of no Return please do, she's divine....there's a little questionable violence where Robert Mitchum grabs her and forces her on the ground (but she really wants him to...right....)
anyway I love her look in this film and I was super happy to find these great 50s-60s jeans below which are now listed in the shop, Marilyn would've filled them out rather better than me though!

Just some cool actresses hanging out in the 1930s! I just found a great book (am sure some of you have it, "The Way We Wore" which is fabulous images of actress Marsha Hunt all gussied up in the 1930s and 40s....Marsha is the 2nd from the right in this last picture and I love her ruffled dress! which is your fave? (aside from the cool overalls in the mid picture right!)

These 3 beauties are coming with me tomorrow to the Manhattan Vintage Show...and if they end up coming home with me they will be in the shop next week! don't want to try them on because I love all 3, in 3 different ways. See you back here after the show and a brief hiatus in the desert of AZ for the in laws 70th birthdays! (my husbands parents, John and Joan, were born on same day, same year!)

Was so incredibly pleased to find these great vintage sunglasses tucked away in corner of an antique mall yesterday! They took a turn outside today, bring on the heat yes?!
*dress thrifted (didn't think I could do the 90's....but....it's comfy!)

This is Ginger. When warmer weather rolled around I realized I had stockpiled some pretty cool summer dresses etc in sizes beyond a small-medium....so I thought these beauties could do with a lovely lady to do them justice, and I think Ginger really does that. At first Gingers tattoos were making me a little nervous, would they be distracting? You know I really don't think so....they are just another thing that makes Ginger her and I think she makes this WH vintage about 100 times more interesting! thanks Ginger for yesterdays shoot!

Hope you had a good one! Think I need to start making a to do list as so many things can happen in one day with this vintage biz...must learn to prioritize! so much to do....

I just rescued this pretty amazing Edwardian dress from an antique mall...when I saw it I knew it was a goodie but checking it over I was downright stunned at the lack of damage. There is ONE area of damage, just the neckline has a little loose trim. And it would take a handy tailor about 15 mins to fix! the layers of chiffon are perfect, every button, tassel, trim....intact. This grand dame is coming with me to the Manhattan Vintage Show later this month...it's a costume department's dream!....unless Edwardian is, like, soooooo 100 years ago....
