Vintage Shop Update | Path To Soubise

It’s 60 degrees fahrenheit here in Portland, and we had a hard time coming in the studio to work instead of frolicking around in fields. Instead, we had a short picnic at the park next to the studio, so we can give you a shop update! Filled with some lingerie, both vintage and modern, and dresses!

Vintage Style Notes | Teddy Girls

Find it in the shop: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

If you know The Beatles, I’m sure you know of Teddy Boys. But did you know there were Teddy Girls? In case you didn’t, let me give you a little brief. Teddy Boys were a 1950s subculture in England. You can say they were post-war punks. After the war, there was an abundance of vintage Edwardian suits, and the youth started wearing them.

Their style was influenced by Edwardian dandies. Teddy Girls, also known as Judies, were their female counterparts. They wore blazers over collared shirts, neck scarves, secretary bows, velvet, brooches, straw hats, and Edwardian hairstyles. The most important part of their style, however, is their attitude. They were rebellious young ladies. Teddy Girls were daughters of working class immigrants and at the age of 14 or 15 they often left school to work in a factory, so as a response to their struggle, they grew thick skin.

What I love so much about Teddy Girls is although they were known as girl gangs and were notorious for being misfits, they didn’t wear torn up casual clothes, they were dressed up in clothing that high end Edwardian aristocrats would wear.

So, next time I’m feeling a bit rebellious, I’ll be reaching for a brooch and and tweed blazer, not fishnets and studded mini skirts (which I actually don’t even own!).

Monday Inspiration | Les Femmes des Édouard Boubat

328d891b40e6e2c9fedeca956718dc1fToday’s Monday inspiration is the incredibly talented french photographer Édouard Boubat, and the ladies in his photographs. It’s easy to get lost in a romantic dreamland of 1940s and 1950s France when scrolling through his work. I can’t help but almost tear up at the touching moments between his subject and the way they’re experiencing the world around them. Boubat was called a “peace correspondent” by french poet Jacques Prévert, because his photographs tended to be uplifting.

Boubat was born in Paris and originally studied typography and graphic design. After going to the war, he made his first photograph in 1946. This photograph ended up winning the Kodak Prize the following year, which started his career as a photographer.

The ladies in his photographs are all so lovely. Feminine and comfortably dressed. Their curls, antique tops, long skirts, flowing dresses, polka dots, textured knits, and turtlenecks are all styles that are will forever influence my fall wardrobe (and well, honestly, just any season applicable). The last photograph is one of my all time favorites. I want that to be my life – foraging flowers in my wool skirt and long blazer with one of my best gal pals. Sigh.

Which lady is your favorite?
