A few of my favorite things 💘
Late 1930s little black dress with special details from @twooldbeans . My vintage collection is slowly getting much more curated and full of only the things that make me happy to wear and look at. This is definitely one of those pieces!
I posted a picture of Mary Ellis with her cat a few weeks ago and this photo of her and her husband Basil Sydney (Claudius to Laurence Olivier’s Hamlet in the 1948 film) is from the same ‘at home’ photo shoot, from the collection of photos I catalogued the other day. They’re practically sitting in the (unlit) fireplace. He’s reading a book and she’s reading a magazine. Gendered, much? #readingwomenofthevanda#maryellis#basilsydney#vanda#archive#1930s#actress#cataloguing
i am obsessed with this blouse! i got it quite a while ago but i’ve literally only just plucked up the courage to wear it! also, i took some photos of my hair earlier that i was going to post, but the longer i looked at them the more i hated them!! so i’m not going to! but if it still looks okay tomorrow, i will try and take some better ones that i don’t really hate! i hope you all have had wonderful days!!!💕✨🌿🍂
