Swanky Silver

My inspiration this week was this Editors Choice on Silver from the February Issue of Harpers Bazaar. This highlights accessories all in a beautiful metallic silver with very 40's and 70's references. I happen to love both eras of fashion, and find them very inspirational while adding a touch of glamour to your look!

This 1980's Blouse by Sequel comes in a silver, metallic polyester and has short sleeves, an open neckline and a is a perfect touch of silver without being overly dramatic.
This blouse is for sale on

Not to forget the all important accessory, your beautiful 1960's Faye Mell Handbag in Silver and Gold. This handbag is in mint condition, and is a very unique piece to complete your look!
You can purchase this handbag on

This outfit was made by my customer Donna Perry in October of last year for Halloween for her beautiful Granddaughter. She purchase a Vintage 1960's Simplicity Sewing Pattern #7519 that she purchased from http://Freshandswanky.com

I was so excited to hear that Donna was interested in sending a photo of the finished product!

Donna did an excellent job on this outfit, I am hoping to get to her level on my sewing skills, she is very talented.

This is the beginning product, I would say she did a very impressive job!

Thank you Donna Perry from Nevada, happy sewing!!
