1920s attire – pics of the week

I saw this beautiful ad from a 1926 fashion magazine on Etsy and was amazed by the variations and detailing of the gowns for sale. So, I looked through my Pinterest pages and pulled up some real ones 🙂

Le’odance shoes

I had never heard of the Le’odance brand of dance shoe until I bought a pair off someone who was selling them because they were too big. They are a French company and I have to say, they are THE most comfortable (of the more formal heeled, raw leather-soled swing dance shoes) that I have ever owned. So comfy and move well on the floor. I wish they had an outlet in Australia. Great low and medium heels for Balboa and Lindy with so many colours and styles. Check out some of my favourite ones. I love the duo-toned ‘Saby’.

New to the Etsy shop – Beautiful brooches

I have this lovely batch of 1930s celluloid brooches coming to my Etsy store. The Navy ‘Buddy’ is 1940s – WW2 era and very rare to find intact and has already been sold. If you are interested in the black swirl or red manta email me at violetsemporium@gmail.com as those 2 are still to be listed.
