5 comments on “1930s capsule wardrobe

  1. Ah, Night and Day. As I recall (well, to be honest, I recall very little these days so I had to revisit my review; one of 351 I’ve kept in the file) my mention was brief and, in the spirit of the novel, upbeat. As a man, I find the clothing female characters wear is, shall we say, less absorbing than the personality and the body it covers!
    But your fiction is sufficiently entertaining for me to accept your understandable forays into fashion descriptions.
    Keep up the good work!

    • I’m not really getting at you, Stuart! I actually added in more detail due to requests from some readers who like to know what the protagonist is wearing. That required even more research!

  2. Love the 30s and the clothing of that era! I’m like you, a habitual scruffy dresser who wishes for the perfect capsule wardrobe… funnily enough, when I was in the Borders last week, I walked past a clothing shop which has a ladies Tweed jacket in the window. It was smart and sharply tailored, but no. When I was a child, we had a box of my grandmother’s 30s clothing (including a fox fur cape, heads and all) and boy, people were so narrow in those days.

  3. Believe it or not but I actually do have a ‘flapper dress’ although I cannot recall the last time I wore it. Good points are that the waist is not defined in flapper dresses which, in my case, maybe a perfect reason to resurrect it!
    However, as I age, I do admit that I may be tempted to invest in a pair of ‘dainty lace gloves’.
