i keep holdin' on...





But I am beginning to let go. Thought I don't wear them I do collect 1920s dresses in what is lovingly called my "distillery" (aka my closet of things I never wear). Along with them are some 1930s dresses as well. But yesterday something just clicked and I decided it was time to let many of them go. They don't really deserve to be just sitting in my shop or "distillery" never to be worn or admired. So all the above dresses are either now in the shop or will be soon. All 1920s-1930s & all so feminine with their candy colors.

And two 1920s dresses the shop will likely never see...they will remain, henceforth, in the "distillery".

Oh my lands, I have been OBSESSING over 20s dresses here lately. Those top two are gorgeous!

you have an admirable collection. its nice that you can let some things go, but hold onto the ones that you really need to keep holding onto

I'm sure you've heard this before, but you should really do costume design for period films!

Gaaahh! 1920's heaven. 'Distillery' is the perfect name. They are getting better (hopefully) with age and would cause anyone who is around them to feel drunk with joy.

Oof. I've been scanning family photos from the 20s and digging the clothes, but none of them were as lovely as this stuff! I don't know if I'd have the strength to let them go, if anything that pretty was mine.

The remaining Distillery dresses are so beautiful I don't even have the words to describe them! And I am just going to cross my fingers that that green flapper dress is miraculously my size :)
