This is look #2 in my quest for 1940's goodness for the Swing Out To Victory dance we are going to this weekend.
The dress is from Cabaret Vintage on Queen West in Toronto. I need to say I LOVE this shop and the owner Tao. He is one of those rare people that you come across and know that they are doing the job they were born to do. He loves what he does and it really shows.
His collection grows every week. Most of it comes from one very large supplier, a vintage collector for over 40 years, now retiring, that rented outfits for the TV and film industry.
Apparently the collection is over 50,000 vintage pieces! Can you believe it? Most of them look like they have never been worn. I'm like a kid in a candy store every time I go.
Isn't the hat I bought at Sweet Trash divine?
It looks like a beret from the front so I'll be able to wear it more often. Great suggestion Terri!
I feel this photo is too close. When you can see my pores it's time to step about 10 steps back from the camera. Sadly since this is taken in our spare room I don't have the space.
I feel like I'm exposing myself a bit more than normal here.
Ah well. F*** it.
Oops…that's not very ladylike is it?
I will need to practise up on my ladylike etiquette before the dance.
The entire outfit is vintage except the shoes and hose.
I adore the collar of this dress. Can you see how it ties? So sweet.
So what do you think of look #2 compared to yesterday's look?
