my husband and i have gotten really into the new HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire". it is a great show, set in atlantic city during the prohibition era. it is amazingly acted and the content and story lines are very interesting. i am a sucker for anything historical fiction. but what i find myself most drawn to is, of course, the amazing fashion. i love the art deco style of that time. the clothes just seemed so much more beautiful and intricate and well made.
i love to imagine the stories behind these vintage dresses (found here and here). who wore them? where were they going? what were they doing?
this is, by far, my favorite era for vintage clothing (and probably one of the hardest to find at a reasonable price!). i feel such a connection to it. maybe i lived during this time in a past life or something. who knows? maybe one of these dresses was mine! ha! (here and here).
