1930s-deco-shingle wave hair 0021930s-turbanDURING THE 1920S NEW, LIGHT MACHINE AGE FABRICS, WERE COMING INTO FASHION & HEMLINES WERE GETTING DARINGLY SHORT. HOWEVER DURING THE 1930’S SKIRTS WERE LENGTHENING & FASHIONS WERE A LITTLE MORE REFINED & CONSERVATIVE. CLOCHE HATS WERE REPLACED WITH PERFECTLY COIFFED HAIR & TURBANS WERE COMING INTO THEIR OWN. EYEBROWS WERE SHAVED OR PLUCKED & PENCILED ON IN THIN HIGH ARCHES.

 

FABULOUS FASHIONABLE FRIENDS AT ANY AGE IN ANY ERA

friends-1930sTHIS LOVELY VINTAGE PICTURE WAS FOUND IN A SHOEBOX FULL OF SMALL FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE 1930S. I ENLARGED AND CROPPED THE PHOTO AND I COLOURED IT TO BRING BACK SOME OF ITS VIBRANCY. I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE LITTLE DOG SITTING ON THE WOMANS SHOULDER. THESE LADIES PROBABLY DIDN’T HAVE A LOT OF MONEY BUT THEIR DRESSES AND SHOES ARE LOVELY AND FEMININE. THESE WOMEN LOOK LIKE SUCH GOOD FRIENDS.

VINTAGE PROM PHOTOGRAPHY AND FASHION

THE YOUNG GIRL ALL IN WHITE IN THIS VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH APPEARS TO BE EITHER DRESSED FOR HER SENIOR PROM OR A CORONATION. I FOUND THIS PICTURE ON A REAL PHOTOGRAPHIC POSTCARD FROM THE 1920S. IT WAS PROBABLY A ONE OFF PICTURE CARD MADE TO COMMEMORATE THIS SPECIAL OCCASION.
