Yet another time for Sophistique Noirs theme post. This time it's about vintage. The word vintage means for me, old clothes and accessoires in high quality. Since my teenage I have been a collector of vintage clothes. Those clothes I sold and those I didn't buy are the finds I regret the most. So I have promised myself not to get rid of any of my beloved treasures, ever again.
My first piece is a 50's thick brocade dress . The bodice and skirt panels are not parted so the amount of fabric used in this is dress must be huge.
Here's a closeup of the lovely heartshaped neckline. You can see that the brocade has fine baby blue details. The necklace is made of a vintage bracelet and vintage earclips ( I have a bracelet with the same parts as the earclips).
Detail of the deep neckline and a 50's necklace ( I have matching earclips with theese).
The last dress is my Suzy Wong dress, probably from the end of 50's mid 60's. It is a snug fit dress with chinese collar. The neck is so tight that I have never been able to close the last button of it, even if I have been slim.
The fabric is a structured black wool blend with copper brown inlays. A white removable inner collar is a extra detail
Last picture shows my absolute vintage favourite shoes. My brass studded 40's sandals. The huge bows with studs make these shoes a statement piece. They look fabulous on the feet and are very comfortable, like most vintage shoes are.
I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of my vintage collection.
