For Frock’s Sake…

It’s hard to say if I’ve ever spent more time browsing through a vintage clothing website as I have on The Frock (sorry Cameron Silver!). Hours, and that’s the truth. It’s almost like visiting an online costume museum. Picking some pieces to show you were probably the hardest part, there was a Victorian mourning gown that I still can’t get out of my mind.

Living in a city where I can wear coats all year around, looking for a jacket or a coat that’s something beautiful to wear as well protects from the fog and wind. Honestly, I’m not into the trench… it’s ok, but I do love these flapper coats, the silk velvet and brocade opera coat, and the silvery brocade deco coat, simply gorgeous. (The flapper headdress is also on this site, was owned by the silent film star, Norma Talmadge)
Thanks Adian for showing me this lovely site! I just love it!

  6. The pink/oyster coat on the right is just superb…. it demands to be thrown over a party dress but then quickly tossed away when you get to the party…
