Happy Hump Day Lovers!! Considering it’s Valentine’s Day- week, I hope you all have an “extra special” (wink, wink) Hump Day! Lol!
Today’s Valentine’s Day inspired look is dedicated to my love for one of a kind vintage finds! There’s nothing like the feeling of stepping into a vintage boutique; the smell, the stories, the possibilities… Ohhhhh! I get goosebumps just thinking about it! I scored this gorgeous, drop waist, pleated dress at Hubba Hubba Vintage Apparel in Burbank, California last summer. Burbank, California is home to all the major film production studios in the United States including, Warner Brothers, Disney, Universal, Paramount and Sony to name a few. As a result, Burbank is one of the absolute most amazing places to score vintage and thrift finds due to the large intake of items received from the studios upon completion of films and projects. Essentially, any item from a vintage or thrift shop in Burbank was more than likely used on a film set and/or probably worn by a major movie star, actor or extra. Pretty cool huh?
Although I don’t know exactly if and when this romantic, pleated dress was used on a film set, I imagine it being part of the wardrobe to a 1940- 1960 “Good Old Fashioned Love Story”! Something along the lines of “Casablanca” or “Thrill of a Romance” (two of my favorite “oldie, but goodie” films). In a more current film set, this dress would be a shoe in for the “Mad Men” wardrobe! Don’t you think?
What’s your favorite time period in fashion?
