Black and Ivory

Color scheme in mind, a 1930’s outfit I would die to have…

The Dress.

1930’s double layer lace gown made by J. Peterman.

The dress is called Bricktop after the American jazz singer, dancer, and vaudeville performer, Ada “Bricktop” Smith.

The Coat & Scarf.

The dress could easily be worn by itself, but on those cold winter nights this 1930’s coat and scarf will keep you warm and vintage chic. The coat is black velvet and both are newly available among couture allure’s collection of vintage items for sale.

The Necklace.

Keeping with the 1930’s black and ivory theme, here we have a Bakelite necklace available. Bakelite has made a ton of vintage dress clips, pins, baubles, and other jewelry. From my experience, quality has always been wonderful.

The Shoes.

1930’s style black and ivory pumps from Aris Allen.

Aris Allen shoes have been the most comfortable and affordable vintage reproduction shoes I have found. I think this particular shoe would be a perfect match to the Bakelite necklace. After all accessories can make the outfit.

Any additions any of you, my vintage fashion savvy readers, would add or change?

Men – What would you wear to compliment this outfit?

Vintage 1940’s gown has a embellished seam in the front that pops to catch the attention of your audience as you razzle dazzle them. I love how the 40’s just made clothing appear to drape you so effortlessly. Found on eBay.
