I am currently preparing for a 1930’s night out in London, complete with cabaret and cocktails. Our tickets are booked and our room will be booked soon, but I don’t have a dress. I was bidding on a beauty on eBay, but it sold at way over my budget!!
So now I have three options and an inability to decide what to wear! I want to stick with true vintage fashion, but I could go for vintage inspired looks if needs be! The three vintage 1930s dresses I am about to list, however, all all true vintage fashion, complete with age spots and moth holes.
The options are:
1. A dress modelled on Keira Knightly in Atonement. You know, the long green satin dress with a fishtail line and oodles of sex appeal! Vintage fashion at its best, that dress!
2. A much more sedate, but also very elegant 1930s vintage gown, is this cream crepe dress I have found on Etsy! It is rather lovely, especially the vintage cream lace insert on the back.
3. Finally, I have a more unusual choice – the wildcard of vintage fashion, if you will. This is more summery and more unique, although it is still evening wear appropriate as it is a floor-length gown.
