POODLES skirt !!!

Hello, how are you dear followers?

For us, it's quite a slow beginning for this new year.

Probably because of this SO cold weather!

We have had not so much snow but ...

temperatures have been below O°C for days now!

But sun helps us not to stay at home!

Yesterday was a flea market day and here were our outfits!

30's style for Sylvain...

and a 50's style for me!

A classical 50's coat

with gorgeous details

but it was not long enough to fully hide

 the master piece of my outfit!

There are some iconic clothes when you think about the 50's...

and POODLE skirt is one of them!

you can find a lot of cheap repros...

but when you are searching for a real vintage one,
it's really hard to find!

Even more in a wearable size, well made and in good condition!

I believe this one is perhaps from Juli Lynne Charlot but missing tag...

 she was the inventor of this kind of felt skirts in the 50's.

Of course I had to wear a POODLE brooch

and match my bangles with this one of a kind skirt!

When the 30's meet the 50's...

Sylvain likes to wear those heavy wool knickers

 when it's really cold outside!

These were worn by bikers before the 50's.

Using a cap really accentuate this vintage biker style...

but with a touch of elegance

with a daper 40's tie of course!

What do you think about POODLE skirts?
Gorgeous or really kitch?

 L'année démarre pour nous en douceur le climat hivernal n'aidant pas à prévoir de grandes sorties! Mais hier, un marché aux puces fût l'excuse pour se bouger un peu et voici nos tenues du jour!
Années 30 pour Sylvain et 50 pour moi! Il y a quelques vêtements iconiques de certaines périodes et quand on pense aux 50's, surtout aux USA, la jupe cercle caniche est un symbole des années rock'n roll ! On trouve de nombreuses repros à la qualité douteuse, mais quand on cherche une pièce d'époque, dans une taille portable, en bon état et de bonne qualité, cela devient bien plus dur à trouver!!! Je n'ai donc pas manquer celle-ci quand elle s'est présentée à moi. Au vue de son design et de sa qualité, elle pourrait être l'oeuvre de Juli Lynne Charlot, la créatrice de ses jupes dans les 50's, malheureusement plus d'étiquette....
Sylvain avait opté pour un style motard classe des années 30, quelle élégance décontractée!
