Autumn inspiration

There has been a definite chill in the air over the past few days and the leaves are starting to turn spectacular colours so I've been pulling out warmer clothes and putting together a little autumnal Pinterest board... I do love the style of 40s and 70s autumn fashions! Hope you enjoy the picks and find some vintage inspiration!

Shop Update: Separates

1960s beaded sequin shell top
1960s white bib blouse with lace trim
1970s Edwardian Revival Cover-up
 I'm stopping by to share some new separates that hit the shop over the past week! The 60s bib blouse, 40s taffeta skirt and Blanes suit have a few condition issues and are being listed at special, discounted prices. I'm hoping a clever seamstress can resurrect or create a pattern from that suit jacket - the tailoring is just stunning. 

40s / 50s bolero by Lane Bryant
1940s taffeta skirt with cord trim soutache swirls
1940s silk striped suit by London couture house, Blanes
I have more listings up my sleeves and a few more blog posts planned so stay tuned!
