I must admit I don’t own much reproduction vintage clothing I do prefer the originals but due to a rather unfortunate incident while dancing at the Vintage Norwich Award Ceremony I heard a rip and on investigation discovered a large tear in a very beautiful 40’s dress – fortunately I managed to fix it but due to the fact that originals can be delicate I have looked at some reproduction pieces.
I think that there are some lovely dresses out there but I do find some of them a little “young” for me – too many “cutsie” fabrics – and as a lady who channels Grace Kelly rather than Pin Up style and as a woman approaching her 50’s I have to be careful not to look like “mutton dressed as lamb” and one company that I have discovered has some elegant dresses that I could quite happily see myself in – one is even called after Grace herself.
So take a look at the fabulous dresses on www.hubbahubbavintage.com – and get some “grown up” vintage style.
The “Grace” dress – this would be lovely with a pair of pumps, white gloves and a Kelly bag – perfect for summer days.
The “Veronica” dress – such a simple style and so 40’s – I would wear it with in the day with a fabulous little hat or in the evening with some chandelier earrings
