1930s lookbook






A sumptuous display of 1930s fashion, no? The colors are just perfectly perfect. I so wish 1930s films were in color so I could see outfits like this in motion. The gray dress with the orange sash is most certainly my favorite, which is yours?

I love them all -- just give me Myrna Loy and Kay Francis sporting these outfits, and I'm a happy man.

I really love the way they used color in the 30s and 40s. Such unexpected colors together but they complement each other so well. Something i feel we've lost through the years.
And the angles, folds and flips but it doesn't feel masculine or over the top its quite feminine with the touch of bows and stitching and buttons buttons buttons.
That ruffle blouse is fantastic and yes, that gray dress with the peach sash is amazing! I can just imagine it in person with stud S's and shimmering sash. Its gorgeous!

oooo I'm loving the blue row (especially the coat-dress' neckline of the left) - these are such lovely pieces. I guess my biggest difficulty with 1930s dresses is that they are mostly at a maxi or midi length - something that does not suit my body :( I will to love from a far

The blue dress with the sweet bows on the sleeves.
And I was just thinking that the elongated illustrations are a little bit like the fashion model ideal of today. One day fashion may embrace hips!

I particularly like the cut of the first blue dress. I would love to be able to sew something like that.
