I just saw a lovely image over at Lobster and Swan of a vintage crepe chiffon top - it reminded me of the Edwardian underskirt I found at the op shop several years ago now and I got to thinking about the other pieces I have of this ilk. I love Edwardian styling - the heavily worked long skirts and layers of chiffon underskirts. The top two are pieces I bought in London many years ago. I'm afraid I can't remember the name of the shop but it was on Golbourne Road near Portobello and the designer makes them up from Edwardian patterns. It was love at first sight with absolutely no mind to the practicalities of these heavily worked creations in the hot Australian climate ;) There has been the odd occasion when I have got to wear them and friends have borrowed them for special events as well... They do take up a lot of space but I could never throw them out. This is why I can't do a wardrobe overhaul - I may only wear ten percent of it all but the majority is vintage finds or special pieces that I treasure. Tell me I'm not the only one... do you have a mini-museum in your wardrobe? A shrine of the adored un-worn (or in the case of my 1950s minute-waist dress collection, the un-wearable) ??
