Some of our members attended the Waxahachie WWII/Veteren’s Day Weekend re-enactment Saturday and had a wonderful time walking around the historic square and visiting some of the shops! So many attendees, both young and old, admired and loved our fashion and thanked us for bringing that nostalgic feeling to the event.

Being helplessly in love with this #1942 waffle front #cardigan I am knitting up right now... The pattern comes from an old Spool Cotton knitting leaflet, found at the #purplekitty free #vintage #knitting website. The color is a #mango yellow, leftover from the #schachenmayr Bravo summer collection. 😊 . . #beginnerknitter #knittinginstagram #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #schachenmayrbravo #knitcardigan #vintageknitting #1940sfashion #1940s #wafflepatterns #wafflepatternknit #progressnotperfection #unfinishedends #unfinished #knitsweater #knitwear #knityourownclothes #vintage40s

Fashion for economy - Vogue choice of the month portfolio of wartime economies, March 1943 features seven ‘economy’ outfits. After listing the particulars of the clothes the last line of the caption for this ensemble also encourages us to join the war effort and to recycle paper: ´Please help us stack paper salvage as high as in these Belvedere Waste Paper Co. baskets.’ . . .

I'm obviously skipping some days of #30daysofvintagestyle as I can't make myself to be so much on my phone but I chose a dream item I still didn't found for day 12. Photographed here is a fashion designer Irene Gibbons in 1940 with her models and this arrow embellished skirt suit is everything! I love suits and uniformed fashion and that's why I'd love to get myself one of these gems in my size 💙 but I wouldn't mind getting myself a gown like the one on the photo either 😎 #vintagestories #vintageinspiration #irenegibbons #fashiondesigner #1940sfashion #1940ssuit #1940smodel #1940sdesign #arrowsuit #arrows #1940ssuit #1940shat #1940sgown #1940smodels #vintagegirl #vintagelife #vintagesoul #truevintage #day12

Fred A. Block was born in Chicago in 1898, one of ten children born to Russian Jewish immigrants. By 1920, he was working at his own dress shop, and in 1933 the Fred A. Block Company leased space at the Merchandise Mart, built in 1930 as a wholesale warehouse store for Marshall Field that would also rent space to other businesses, selling clothing and household goods from the massive Art Deco landmark on the Chicago River. The Fred A. Block label flourished into the 1960s, known for extreme quality and details; a #1940s dress like this one carried a retail price of about $80-$100, roughly $1200 in today’s dollar. // #ootd #truevintageootd #1940sfashion #fredablock #vintagelabel

Rare 1940's yellow wool boucle swagger coat! I did a lot of research before dating this coat to the late 1940's. It's possible I could be off by a few years and it was actually produced in the early 50's, but looking at certain design elements my gut is telling me 40's. Regardless, that cheery yellow color is quite a departure from its more somber wartime predecessors, and this beautiful yellow coat is in amazing condition, fits a variety of sizes, and is available now on Etsy and eBay (shop links in bio). Truly a one-of-a-kind addition to any vintage lover's collection. #1940svintage #1940sfashion #1940sstyle #vintageswaggercoat #vintageswingcoat #newlookstyle #postwarfashion #postwarstyle

Here's a little known #fashionhistory fact for you... In 1940, nylon stockings burst onto the fashion scene with an impressive four million pairs sold out during their first two days in stores. The wonder product became a staple of a well-dressed woman's wardrobe but as WWII progressed, a nylon ration was enforced in Britain & the US soon after the product's debut. Nylon was a valuable material needed to make parachutes, supplement the rubber shortage for tire production, reinforce rope, and act as powder bags for firearms. When the War Production Board commandeered DuPont's stock of nylon, the company re-tooled its factories and from then on dedicated its nylon production to essential war materials. But fashion saavy ladies were not deterred. Liquid stockings soon became a thing and beauty stands, much like a shoe shine stand, sprung up where women could have their stockings painted on while out shopping. Some opted for a diy approach and would even resort to using gravy for that perfect tanned leg effect. The practice was known as "gravy browning" or "glamorous hose" and was encouraged as an innovative solution to the wartime inconvenience. . . . . . #fashion #fashionfacts #funfacts #history #fashionhistory101 #fashionhistoryblogger #historical #nylonfeet #wartimefashion #1940sfashion #beautytakestime #vintage #vintagefashion #beautyhistory #fashionstudies #goodgrooming #style #welldressed #conversationstarters #learningisfun #themoreyouknow #gravy

One of my Arabic speaking families taught me a nursery rhyme in Arabic. They could not stand another round of Baby Shark Doo Doo haha. The foster mom felt so proud to be the one who is teaching the song. I butchered the song, of course, with my cute Thai accent 🤪. . After practicing the song for three weeks, I finally got a hang of it. The foster mom, all the tiny humans, and this dorky therapist sang the song together in the therapy session. We were laughing and smiling and clapping together. Then, a magical moment happened... . The foster mom stopped singing and she looked at the tiny humans who stopped singing too. They exchanged a smile that I had not seen in a while. Without singing, they still moved their bodies and clapped their hands together. The rhythm and synchrony that transcended words were so powerful. ✨❤️ . The body is healing and the brain is re-wiring the attachment relationship that was broken due to the past abuse. The family as a whole are rewriting their stories and renegotiating what it means to trust one another again. In that moment, I know their journey towards healing as a family has begun. . Let me be clear, I am not taking any credit. I’m sharing the story because healing takes place in an attuned relationship. I am beyond humbled to facilitate the process and witness the resilience in my work every day. ☺️✨❤️ . #1940shat : @hopscotchandsoda #1940s jacket: @fabgabs #1960s dress: @goodsoulvintage #ilovemyjob #infantmentalhealth #childrenmatter #familiesmatter #traumainformed #culturalhumility #resilientheart #lovewell #wholehearted #grateful #inspired #truevintageootd #chicagofashion #1940sfashion #1960sfashion

Finally got around to visiting the amazing Battle Abbey. 1070, Pope Alexander II ordered the Normans to do penance for killing so many people during their conquest of England. In response, William the Conqueror vowed to build an abbey where the Battle of Hastings had taken place, with the high altar of its church on the supposed spot where King Harold fell in that battle on Saturday, 14 October 1066. William started building it, dedicating it to St. Martin, sometimes known as "the Apostle of the Gauls," but died before it was completed. Its church was finished in about 1094 and consecrated during the reign of his son William known as Rufus. William I had ruled that the church of St Martin of Battle was to be exempted from all episcopal jurisdiction, putting it on the level of Canterbury.

Here is the skirt I made last week. Simple A-line silhouette in a vintage rayon crepe, with a black and white triangle, floral pattern. It came in three pieces so I had to be strategic about cutting and because of that I didn’t bother about trying to create some kind of cool pattern with the print. I am happy with it nevertheless! #vintagesewing #memade #sewing #vintagelife #1940s #1940sfashion #ootd #ootdsocialclub #sewvintageootd
The season of bad photos -do to the lack of natural daylight- has begun...☁️ Ahh well. I found this lovely pair of green vintage gloves from @morfarsmoustache at the vintage fair yesterday. I knew they would fit right in with my other green accessories. I love accessories - they can really pull an outfit together. I espcially like collecting colourful accessories to match. Today I’ve styled this red 1940s jacket with all green accessories: 1940s green handbag, 1930s deco brooch, 1970s green silk scarf and 1920s green earscrews. And of course a pair of green 1970s does 1940s slacks. #1940sfashion #1940svintage #1940sstyle #greenandred #accessories #vintageaccessories #greengloves #greenaccessories #truevintageootd #dagensvintageoutfit #redjacket #vintagestyle #vintagehairstyle
