Vintage Miscellany – November 26, 2017

The photo above came from an estate in California, but other than that, I know nothing about it. I have not had a lot of success finding vintage photos of women of color wearing sportswear but I am always looking. Anyway, this probably is from the mid to late 1930s.

I was told by the internet that today is #MuseumStoreSunday. I had not planned this, but many of today’s links are museum related. And if you are lucky enough to live near a good museum, you might show your support with a visit today.

  1. That photo really put some sunshine into a rainy day! Re: Mod New York: San Francisco museums recently had a “Summer of Love” show, but I didn’t go to see it — I was there in 1967. Free concerts in the park — wonderful. Homeless runaway teenagers living in squalor on the streets — not good. On the other hand, is paisley coming back? A good thing, in moderation….


    • I had a very subdued paisley shirtdress in the late 1960s that I loved. Here in the sticks the trends had to be toned down because we were all afraid of looking too outre!

      I recently ran across a very similar fabric and I bought it. Maybe I’ll remake my dress I loved so much.

    love the -what appears to be an over sized cowboy hat with a crease in the crown. I a sure it looked good with the polka dot suit.
