I have a strange little wishlist of random vintage goodies that I'm always looking to find. The list borders somewhere between random and bizarre, and I'm not sure exactly where I get the ideas. Currently on my list is; a horse head brooch (preferably Bakelite), a rooster brooch, a fish themed novelty skirt, a hat with a bird's nest, and pinafore type dress. I told you I was random! I started a search for pinafore dresses, and discovered that many on the uniforms from the 40s-50s were made in this style. I liked the idea of a candy-striper style dress and was preparing to purchase one, when I came across this blue and white pinstipe one on ebay. I'm wearing it with a cocoa 1960s, cropped blouse, and my Sarah Coventry seagull brooch. My 1950s mustard yellow cardigan is made by a company called Blairmoor.
Nurses uniforms in 1950
Or perhaps a school uniform from the late 40s?
