Next is Sara from Vintage Diva.
Sara tells us that she has been interested in the 1940's from childhood. "I always loved Saturdays when I could watch the old movies on TV. Loved to watch the movie divas of the past decades...Katherine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Myra Loy, Lana Turner, Elizabeth Taylor . Enjoyed the music of Cole Porter and Glenn Miller."
"I live in a 1920's bungalow in Virginia with 2 dogs-- Bogie and Jill with gardens surrounding the house. I have closets filled with vintage clothing and a garage full of vintage furniture from the 1930- 1940's."
"(Vintage Diva) is the best place to find the styles of vintage, ethnic and art-to-wear fashion, featuring clothing from the 1940's to the ‘90's. Enjoy the aura that dressing in vintage clothing and jewelry can create. We've been buying and wearing vintage/ethnic clothing and jewelry for almost twenty years."
Sara sells on her own website, Specialist Auctions and eBay and here is a beautiful red wool 1950s vintage cape now available at Specialist's Auctions...(Click to View)..
