Vintage Outfit Post-Channeling Clara Bow

I've written before about how my favorite 1920s vintage style icon is the lively and charming Clara Bow.  

To my mind the most iconic Clara Bow look involves some sort of nautical blouse 


and a beret


An outfit combining both of these elements has been on my vintage wish list for some time and thanks to Mod Cloth, Time Machine Vintage on Etsy, and Adeline's Attic on Etsy I have managed to create a Clara Bow-Esque look and it is one of my favorites.  Lately I've been wearing it everywhere. 



 The shoes, blouse and tights are from Mod Cloth which is a great resource for reasonably priced vintage inspired items that mix well with more authentic vintage.   I have also always found their customer service to be very helpful.  My hat is an actual 1910s beret from Etsy shop Adeline's Attic and my skirt is a 1930s reproduction from Time Machine Vintage.   I particularly love the hat as its one of the older items in my wardrobe and when I wear it I often wonder about the women who owned it before me, I hope she had as much fun wearing it as I do.

  1. You look so magnificent! The nautical style jives awesomely with your personal style. Goodness, if they did a movie about Clara's life these days, they should cast you to play here in it!
