The 30s for real vintage style

What is new to funkomavintage? The 30s. Glamour, Depression, the 1930s held all the human drama and the clothes are evocative and always have the most interesting details.

wow, what a beauty is this French silk nightgown. Bias cut, hand-stitched, and appliqued with lots of ecru lace, and look at the bow at the hip, and the asymmetrical hemline. Amazing. Made in Paris France, in the very early 30s with just a hint of the 20s style in the hi-lo hem fashion.
Just listed in the website, clicky funkomavintage.

 Pretty panties, vintage 30s Shell Pink Silk tap Panty is a classic 1930s style lavished with lace along the hem and front of these pink silk tap shorts. They button on the side, and they have a 30" waist. Delightful! Available in funkomavintage's web shop. clicky here.

The woven label in Art Deco style lettering. Cool.

Burgundy, navy blue, and lots of round windows. It was sleek, it was futuristic.
Moody colors, secondary color wheel combos like this tile facade update done in the 30s, here at Fagiani's Bar in Napa. The owners fought with the City of Napa to retain this historical scheme, even though it was a much newer addition to this 1890's building. I'm glad they won, and kept it. It's a relic from my childhood, so I like it. My parents were very good friends with the Fagiani family, and of course, my mom owned a bar, so there was a lot in common here ; - )

Cowboy clothes captured the imagination of folks in the 30s. Images of the beauty of the western United States with deserts, wide open spaces and natural landscapes, and of course, cowboys and Indians, whether true or not, were sold and folks loved it.
Any city slicker can dress like a Westerner and get happy!
Here's a beauty of a 30s rayon cowboy shirt with amazing embroidery, and pearly snaps. Available at the website, clicky here.

For a classic 30s look, a long black rayon lace party dress. This is a cool one to accessorize with lots of jewelry, update with a wide belt and wear it with a short fur jacket, faux or vintage.

It has many elements of 30s style such as a cape collar, a peplum at the waist and a bias cut full dramatic skirt. When you see a wide fluttering collar or a peplum on a modern dress, blouse or suit, it is recalling the 30s drama in fashion.
