Though you hardly know her the light’s on its way.

My daily fashion pick usually focuses on retro garments but today I have selected a true vintage item. My blog post “Retro, Faux Vintage, Vintage and Vintage Style” explains the difference https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/retro-faux-vintage-vintage-and-vintage-style/.

From http://www.ballyhoovintage.com (link below *).

Rare Vintage 1950s Irene Tailored Linen Suit featuring a fitted jacket with slight shoulder pads; fully lined in luxurious silk striped fabric, and an attached versatile scarf that loops through the collar, six buttons down the front to the hem and a turned up triangle of lining fabric on one side. The skirt has two oversized front pockets and the slightest flare. Jacket – Shoulder to shoulder 17″, Bust 36″, Length 24″. Skirt – Waist 26″, Hips to 38″, Length 28″. One available…priced at US$725.00 (approximately £558.00).

  1. This is a stunning outfit, it reminds me of a air hostess uniform. Could you imagine a air hostess wearing that, they would look “first class”!
