From the 50's TO the 40's....

Some vintage girls are just interested in one era...


For example, just the 50's or just the 30's.


For me, I have 2 decades in heart!


50's of course but also 40's!


I really like the puffy skirts of the 50's,


that make me feel like a princess...


but I also like the simple lines of the 40's fashion!


"A" shape skirt, small puffy sleeves...


So simple but SO elegant!


I usually HATE paisley, but I really fell in love with that dress.


I found it NOS in Bruxelles 2 days ago!


I could not wait to wear it, really perfect for hot weather!


I paired it with my 40's purse... 


a lot of people believe it's a fishing basket...


This hat from the late 30's, early 40's is typically french.


I bought it NOS years ago, a real treasure... but SO fragile!


You must have noticed my gorgeous brooch...


I will tell you a secret, it is not vintage!


It was made for me by the friendly Melanie from


Please visit her shop, her work is amazing and she can also customized her designs just for you (colors, rhinestones...)


Here is a 40's summer style by Sylvain!


Like me he loves the 50's but can easily switch to the 40's or even 30's.


He likes those kind of knickers but they are quite hard to find now.


Great sporty watch from the 50's!


One more time our familly asked us:
"Did you choose to match today?"
One more time it was unexpected....


Do you like different decades?
Did you find some great vintage pieces recently?

FRENCH CORNER
Beaucoup d'amoureux du vintage se concentrent sur une seule période, ce n'est pas le cas pour moi. Bien sûr, j'adore les 50's avec ces jupes corolles avec des jupons qui vous font sentir comme une princesse, mais j'aime aussi les lignes simples des années 40... une simplicité qui donne de l'élégance! Je suis tombée amoureuse de cette robe dès que je l'ai vu dans une boutique à Bruxelles samedi dernier.... même si d'habitude je déteste le motif paisley, le mariage de couleurs et la coupe de cette petite merveille m'ont séduites et en plus neuve d'époque, que demander de plus?
Sylvain est comme moi, il peut très bien passé d'un style 50's à 40's, voir 30's... Une fois de plus, nous étions assortis sans l'avoir réellement cherché....
- A bientôt -

  1. I like anything from the 20s to the early 60s and I'm not always doing a literal interpretation. You look great in both decades

  4. That's a very pretty dress, and I love your handbag too. I have a similar one in shape, but less colourful. I'm also loving Sylvain's shirt! xxx

  5. Everything about your outfit is wonderful, and it looks wonderful on you! My favorite era to wear is 1939-46, but I wear Edwardian through 70s regularly.

  7. I'm not normally a paisley fan either, but the right dress can make me change my mind! You look very lovely, both of you x

  9. I love to see the 50s as much as the 40s on you.Thisdress is so lovely and suits you so well.
    As you might know, I love everything from the laaate 30s up too the early 60s ... and I'm no 'Miss Era Perfect'. Sometimes decades get mixed up. I would fell limited as just a true to the period dresser - sometimes I have to take it as what it is: just fashion - I'm not a museum on legs. ;)
