1930's Fashion

I first visited Rosebud Vintage to just take a look before I ran some errands. The name Rosebud Vintage is deceiving, as all the clothes there are really antiques (which makes me love the store even more) Even my granny didn't have clothes in her closet this old. Most of the dresses are from the 1950's dating back to the Victorian Era. At first I was searching for a 1920's frock, because who doesn't want an authentic flapper dress if they can get their hands on one?

However I never really realized how absolutely stunning 1930's clothes really are. I think we all associate the 1930's with the Great Depression and over look how beautiful the fashion was. The fashion of the roaring twenties was fit loosely and tomboyish however the 30's brought more form fitting, elegant and feminine wear. Most of the evening wear was long and covered most of the skin but were completely backless. I thought about purchasing one, but where would I wear one to? If I was a movie star I would wear them to red carpet events.

Changed the entire wedding color scheme

From orange and teal which was more whimsical, to olive green and seafoam teal. I bought an antique purse ( lower right) which I used as the source of inspiration. Teal and green bridesmaid dresses. Braided hair. Antique jewelry. Peacock feather hair pins. Oriental fans instead of flowers. Love.
