I have always been fascinated with old going out type evening purses and dresser items. I have picked a few up from time to time the old Hollywood type things or maybe I could say when back in the day when you went out for dinner and a night club you really dressed up fancy lacy dresses nylons with a seam up the back had your hair fixed just right makeup perfect costume earrings and necklace to match. Shoes and purses matched unless you were caring a Carry All type bag. I have a few of those and when I first seen them in antiques shops they remined me of a friend of my grandmothers who use to really dress up back in the day. She had furs and I always wanted to dress like this lady named Edeen.
I had an Aunt in St Louis and she really dressed up a lot also because her and Uncle Herb attended a lot of events for Eastern Star. Uncle Herb had his tails on. He liked the tuxedos with tails.
Now days how often does the average person wear tails and formals? Never In my family.
Aunt Lou gave me one of her old lace formals the last time I visited her in St Louis . I always thought as a child she was a big woman however her dress is small I couldn't fit into it now.
This old man's pocket watch was to good to pass up at an estate sale and I liked it on this tray
Now here is some of those old lipsticks with rhinestones on top
See if you can guess what is in this little thing? sitting on a carry all purse
I got this in a box of more little lipsticks once and was so surprised when I opened this and it was a cigarette holder. A lady would use this instead of just hang a cigarette out of the corner of her mouth when dinning out back In the day of course. No filters on Camel cigaretts
Rhinestone on your glasses? Love them
I had a prescription of mine put in these and wore them one day and my girlfriend said take them off you look ugly I guess like Ugly Betty LOL So much for my retro look
Just some more items in the same drawer I love bangle bracelets
A closed Jewelry casket I guess you call it
Opened with my celluloid jewelry in it. a friend gave me this necklace that has the leaves. The earrings and pineapple pin I am sure was in boxes at auctions. The red and gold earrings feel so good. You know how good some old jewelry just feels good?
This is a project to get this shelf cleaned off in the studio. It was going to be a before and after picture but I got distracted and didn't get the after done
