It was funny that I should also have matching Bakelite disk earrings. I find that Bakelite earrings aren't very expensive if you watch some auctions on ebay.
I bought my first very nice carved Bakelite bracelet from ebay a few months ago. They are pricey and I think I paid around $30 for this one, which I thought was a very good price. I don't think the size of the orange bracelet goes to well with the rest of the bracelets, but hey they all shine nice:)
I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. I find that as the change in seasons occurs so might my choice of style/decade. Right now, I am very much interested in vintage novelty print skirts from the 1950s. I also have been collecting images on Pinterest of fabulous novelty skirts. There are so many fun skirts out there. Do you have a favorite 50s novelty skirt that you own? I'd love one with artists' palettes one day and also one of Paris.
I am sure once the weather changes, I'll get back to suit hunting:)
I also want to get cracking on sewing up a 50s novelty skirt. I bought some very beautiful scenic castle fabric. Some of these scenic skirts from the 50s are so amazing!!
Check this one out too. I found an auction for an unfinished circle skirt from the 1950s for $22. It is interesting how the skirt is hemmed but there is no waist band. Figured even if I don't like it very fun to finish it off and check it out. I'm honestly not sure how it will look in person since it is such a busy but interesting print but I do like the detail.
Isn't this print really interesting?
