Lifelong obsession with the Ziegfeld Follies, obviously. (My BA focus was costume design!) I just came across this photo site with so much inspiration & hundreds of photos! I want to make magical costumes again!!!! Inspire! Hide in my little tower and sew sew sew sew! How can magic like this not still exist? How can I not dress like this every single day?? This the vintage period I love the most – a little strange, smoky edges and tarnished sparkles.
Witchy gypsy magic powers!
Tamara Geva & I would be great friends, I can tell.
Mae Davis. Can I have these tights please?
And Marion Benda’s smoky vaseline eyes.
Princess White Deer!
Nellie Donegan. WHAT is happening here?
Margaret Morris & May Leslie. Also here. Hmmmm.
Virginia Biddle. Such a gypsy obsession then!
Doris Eaton! Have you read this amazing book?
Ok, really I could go on forever! But instead, you peruse, and I’ll get to sewing!!
