1940 outfit



I bought this adorable 1940 coin skirt from
the lovely clever nettle

My 40s blouse is oddly My husbands (Pierre Eymard) initials backwards

and Ive had my 40s brooch forever

I have always seem to have a love affair
with shoe clips
I will definitely be making my own soon

This outfit is amazing. I'm in love with the shoe clips! What a great idea...

Are shoe clips essentially just clip-on earrings? Or is there a whole market out there for clips made specifically for shoes? Either way, a wonderful idea!

To everyone: Thank you so much!!!

To thearose: lets put it this way, if you put a shoe clip on your ear you would die of shocking pain. If you put a clip on earring on you shoes, it will be lost in two seconds. But...you can use the shoe clips to gather you clothing and clip it to your shoulder like they did at the end of the 1930's and the beginning of the 1940's (ie dress clips)

i just heard about this shoe-clip idea the other day. i thought it sounded great until i realized none of the shoes i own would work very well with clips on them. its a good place to put my pretty clip-ons, though, since i never wear them on my ears. ill find the right shoe for the right earring, eventually.
