I had been looking for a velvet jacket for some time. There were some fantastic vintage ones I had come across online, but they were naturally very expensive. I also saw a few nice ones in charity shops, but they weren't in my size. Then, when I was looking for something completely different, I came across this pristine one at the local Salvation Army store for only $5. It was hiding among the women's two-piece outfits. It was just like new - with all its rhinestone cluster buttons intact. It's a little Victorian and a little military, which makes it the perfect contrasting thing to throw over a loose, bohemian dress or peasant top.
I have been growing out my bangs - not exactly to have no bangs, but to have those 1910s faux side-bangs. The best examples I can think of right now are a young Daisy and Violet Hilton and this illustration of Theda Bara on the cover of Motion Picture Magazine. This sort of forehead cover is so swoopy and dramatic - almost as dramatic as a black velvet jacket. :-)
