Or this stunning number on Joan Crawford
These images would lead any vintage enthusiast to conclude that if you are going to have a 1930s wardrobe you need to have a polka dot dress. I couldn't find my dream long sleeved navy polka dot dress in vintage form, so I turned to the amazing Kim at Time Machine Vintage on Etsy. She made me a repro dress that is just as good as, if not better, then the genuine article. Its so much fun to wear:
Of course I don't like to leave my dogs out of anything so I made sure to put Weasley in his navy and white bobble sweater made by the wonderful Melissa from pug notes.
I paired my dress with a 1930s hat from Adeline's Attic on Etsy, mod cloth oxford shoes, and a vintage barrette. Since its always fun to mix eras I wore my vintage style cape from American Apparel and my navy 1960s Good Will gloves when I took the dogs for a walk.
One person asked me why I was so dressed up, the answer, as vintage style icon Dita Von Teese says: "the special occasion is life."
