Two years ago, I had the opportunity to visit one of the best textile museums you have never heard of, The American Textile History Museum in Lowell, MA. During this time, they had an exhibit called “Grace and Glamour: 1930s Fashions.” This collection featured many beautiful bias cut dresses that were the fashion statement of the 30s. Luckily, the museum allowed me to take photos. Here are some of the dresses from this exhibit.

The awards season is kicking into gear this weekend with the Golden Globes. Like many, I watch the red carpets to see what everyone is wearing–especially to see who is wearing vintage!

It was supposed to come out Christmas 2012. Then nothing. I did not see or hear anything more about this movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby. So today, I decided to do a little investigating and found the trailer. I cannot wait for this film come out (hopefully) May 2013.
Irene Lentz. What can I say? I only just learned of Irene Lentz and made mention of her in my last post, but have seen her work in many films without knowing whose work it was.

Check out the Vintage Fashion Guild, Irene Lentz, and Wikipedia for a more in-depth look into her life. However, take a look at some of her beautiful designs here…
