Russian Fashion: 1917 - 1960

"Russian Violets" perfume
Face Powder
Housekeeping Journal
As promised last post, here is the second part of the fashion exhibit I went to with Maria! A large part of this exhibit included the fashions of the 1970s - 90s (not my cup of tea as you know!) so the section of mid century fashion was not as vast as I would have liked but here are some of my favorite outfits and accessories. Both Maria and I were pretty tempted to grab those last two floral 60s dresses and make a run for it, aren't they just stunning?

  1. This is pretty much my dream wardrobe!!!!I love all of the floral dresses. I'm too short to wear the flapper dresses, but I still want them lol.

  2. I gasped aloud so many times as I scrawled through these endlessly fantastic images that Annie (my dog) started to bark (playfully) at me - I think she thought my gasps and squeals were the human equivalent of barking. If only she could understand why her human mommy was so endlessly enamoured! :)

  9. You had me at sequins and flapper dresses. I'm 70's hippy girl in real life - sequins don't cut in when running to the shops for milk. I am loving all of your posts. You are a girl after my own heart!

  12. oh wow, everything is so beautiful!! i'd be tempted to run away with the whole exhibition, including all the old perfume bottles and little powder compacts. all the beadwork on the first few dresses is incredible, especially because it all would have been done by hand.
