Gail Carriger's New Acquisition ~ 1930s Grey Dress

Newly come into my life is this lovely grey dress of the 1930s style.

Before the Rack Reductions, Fashionable Reader, I shouldn't have had the courage to wear a dress like this. Bias cut can be very trying on a curvy girl. This dress is not actually 1930s, I'd guess late 90s instead.

Here's some of the real ones:

Evening Dress  Jeanne Lanvin, 1930  The Metropolitan Museum of Art

1930s  The Frock

1930s  Timeless Vixen Vintage

Madeleine Vionnet, 1932  Les Arts Décoratifs

1935  The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Jean Patou, 1935-1939  Les Arts Décoratifs

Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
