1910s Surprise....

I regret to say that I got some amazing vintage finds, but I won't have time to show you guys and photograph them for a couple weeks.  However, I do want to give you some hints as to what I found, starting today with some amazing 1910s eye candy!  (Hint.... 1910s.... I have something from the 1910s to show you...)

I adore 1910s fashion.  It's feminine and luxurious, and the details often worked in are unique.  I also love the silhouette.  Depending on the "fashion-forwardness" of the wearer, it was often slightly looser and more comfortable than earlier trends as fashion moved toward the 20s silhouette.  However, many garments are still anchored at the natural waist, something I particularly prefer for myself.

Also, I love big hats and big hair.  Of which the 1910s had a lot.  The 1910s seem to be all about luxury and drama!

  1. There really was such a striking radiance, beauty and degree of expert craftsmanship at work in many Edwardian fashions. As a child I fell head-over-heels in love with this era via the TV show Road to Avonlea in particular, which was further fuelled by the fact that (at the time) we lived in a charming little house that was built in 1909. Aside from a couple of brooches, I don't own anything clothing from the 1910s, but would wholeheartedly love to one day - and cannot wait to see your fantastic new Edwardian treasures. It's not everyday one adds a piece to their collection that's in the neighbourhood of 100 years old.
