Vintage Shop Update | Holiday Soiree

This week’s vintage shop update, the Holiday Soiree Collection, features all the elegant, classic, and festive wears for all the parties you’ll be attending.

It’s snowing here in Portland at the moment, so that means the whole city is shutting down. Roads are closed, children are sledding on the street instead of at school, and we’re working from home. There’s a fire going in my fireplace and my partner is putting candy canes on our Christmas tree as snow falls outside and wind whistles around the house.

The holidays are here. I can’t stop repeating that in my head. They’re here! Finally! It truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year. I love seeing red noses, everyone bundled up, and baking materials on the end of every isle.

It’s a time of the year about cheer, gathering, and getting all dolled up for a night out to celebrate the year, family, and love by sipping some bubbly champagne, what more can one ask for? vintage 1960s green silk plaid dress | Dear December Dress

2. vintage 1950s navy layered silk chiffon party dress | Air of Mystery Dress

3. vintage 1950s brown fur stole cape | Era of Decadence Cape

1940s Vintage Hats from Women’s Weekly Australia

Today’s feature from the wonderful Women’s Weekly Australia archives are all focused on hats! Oh, how I do wish women still wore hats! These Autumn hats are all so so wonderful!

Vintage 1940s Hats

Vintage magazines and catalogs are a wonderful resource for learning more about vintage! I love that these have descriptions of each hat and the name of the style of hat.

Pancake Beret (purple with green bows and flowers), Pillbox with “Snood” of Velvet Ribbons, A Double Beret…

Oh, I just realized the last picture is actually for summer hats. Australia is in the other hemisphere and these are from a November issue. Oops! Although, I do think these felt/wool hats would have been quite all right to wear in the Fall.

Everyday Styles of Women in the 1940s


While it’s so much fun to oooh and aaah over 1940s fashion magazine editorials and Hollywood starlets dressed to the nines, I mostly prefer seeing how the everyday woman actually dressed. Here are some images I sourced from the wonderful Tumblr 1940 to 1949, you must go visit after you’ve read this post to see more fashions from the 1940s!

I really adore the dresses the three gals are wearing, I could easily see myself wearing any of these. Also this truck is awesome, I know my husband would really love it!
