>Style Star of 1936

>How I love mid 1930s style! This page is no exception.  In fact, I’d gladly take these items right off the page and put them in my closet.  I love the silly little superhero cape on the dress and the lovely detailing on the coat.  Yummy!
*edited to add*  A friend (Top Tottie Vintage on Etsy) recognized the coat in the ad as one she owns!!  Check out a photo of the back of the coat on my Flickr here, here and here.  I thought it looked familiar!

As a side note: Hubby had a the idea to take a day and take pics of me in some of my vintage clothing to document it.  So excited!  I always want to show and tell but somehow get easily sidetracked and never seem to have my hair set when I have time to take pics.

    >I love that they are marketed to "glee-clubbers" and "36 graduates." I want the "Countesse" (with included initial pin)!
