I just adore 1930's fashion, don't you? I hope you enjoyed my spotlight on Barbara Stanwyck's 1933 film, Baby Face. Today, inspired by the outfits in the photos I posted in yesterday's post as well as the photo above, I have included some inspirational items from the 1930's found on Etsy as well as some patterns that look very similar to the outfits Stanwyck wore-which were fab-u-lous!
Stanwyck's character Lily Powers dresses like an everyday 1930's girl in the beginning of the film. She wore skirts with blouses that have large collars and cloche hats, by the middle of the film she is working in an office so she wears fancier dresses again with these amazing collars, and by the end Lily is a wealthy woman who relished in dressing the part.
I hope you enjoy some of these pieces. It is not as easy to find 1930's pieces as it is for other decades but you can always purchase patterns and make some yourself. I admire those who can sew, oh the things they can make! Okay now off to view the pieces I selected that were inspired by Lily Powers from Baby Face.
I can post photos for days! 1930's fashion is like candy to me-super sweet and just delicious to look at! One of my favorite sellers on Etsy is Jill from Adeline's Attic Vintage. She sells clothing and accessories from the 1900's to the 1980's but she specializes in the 1930's. I just love her stuff and you must take a peak at her shop when you can.
I hope you found this post inspirational. Stanwyck's fashion in and out of cinema during the 1930's was outstanding and I will be posting about her fashion this week as well. Tune in tomorrow for a spotlight on the outstanding Miss Barbara Stanwyck!
