Opulent in Organza

It's officially Spring, and even though there's still a little bit of chill in the air, florals and fine fabrics have come full circle - as usual! Today's look is a classic 1930s/1940s silhouette, inspired by Old Hollywood legends and loves...

This is a custom made outfit, dreamed up by me, making it as close to a unique vintage ensemble as possible. I saw this beautiful bishop-sleeve blouse, hand tailored from 'Sparkle Designs by Vivia' and knew it was meant for me! Ornate with Organza and embroidery of blossoms and bouquets, this blouse is Old Hollywood opulence all the way. I especially love her attention to detail with the little blossoms placed on the hand sleeves, similar to a gauntlet glove. 

The pink palazzo pants I had made to my measurements elsewhere, but they ended up being a match made in heaven! Similar to a 'beach pajama' of the 1930s, they are ultra wide, extra flowy, and glimmer in the sun, finished in silky satin. In 30s & 40s fashions, a satin wide leg trouser graced the gams of many starlets, making for the ultimate decadent silver screen look. 

Pair palazzo pants with some puff sleeves, and you will no doubt be a 1940s Spring siren!
