Gold Stars Dress

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

There are so many great things about this 1940’s dress on eBay – I see a lot of black crepe 1940’s dresses with studs or sequin appliques, but this dress takes it up a notch. Not only are the studs gold stars, they are set in a way that forms a lovely trim on the sleeves and the illusion of a scalloped peplum on the hips. I think this might be the most flattering placement of ornamentation I’ve seen for the hips in a while. Bravo!


1920’s/30’s White Dinner Vest

I saw several gents at All Balboa Weekend sporting white vests with a colored shirt (sometimes to match their follower’s outfit) and it looked pretty sharp. While this white dinner vest on eBay is sans tuxedo or dinner jacket, it looks good enough to be worn alone and appears to be in great condition. It does need studs, but then you can find some really cool studs for your new vest!
