There haven't been many days with the crisp warm autumn sunshine. I'm hoping we get a few in before it gets really cold! I'm getting the ol' vitamin D out and starting to take this. I already miss the warm days. Today, I'm getting myself down into the basement where I have a sewing machine to work on fixing up a beautiful very art deco dress I bought off of ebay. It is going to be perfect for next week's shoot. There are a few seams that need to be redone and a couple tears to patch up and it will look like it did 60 years ago:) <Well, hopefully:)>
Since we are also on the theme of "Within The Pages of Vogue". I figured this would also be a great opportunity to share this article from the New York Times from 1940. I have an issue of Vogue from September of 1940 and buried within the pages was this article on Schiaparelli from The New York Times. I love it when you find these neat surprises from past owners. The lady who once owned this magazine also liked Schiaparelli enough to cut out an ad and place it inside a Vogue magazine. I believe you can click on the article to enlarge. Imagine how much these suits would go for today?
I just noticed that not one of these ladies is smiling. They all look so serious but totally glamourous.
Hattie Carnegie on the cover 1940. This is a great issue.
