Suited Up

I have for the longest time wanted a 1940s suit. I looked for hours on end on etsy, ebay and shops with the suits either being too big, small or in fragile condition. To finish this story I ended up having one made by The Golden Age as a Christmas present. It was such a fun process and I absolutely love the end result! Now I can type on my 1940s typewriter in my 1940s style suit.


Both of my Grandmother's gave it the 1940s-style approval 

Have a lovely week everyone!


  1. How lovely! That suit is perfect for you and what a great color! The best part about 1940s suits like that is you can wear the pieces separately as well. I have a gorgeous 1940s suit that I picked up from a vintage shop here in Flagstaff and I wear both the suit and the jacket all of the time.

  2. Oh my goodness it's beautiful! And it suits you perfectly. I'm positively green with envy.

  3. you look so wonderful in this tailoring! cute blog - i love the vintage A - Z :)

  4. Love the suit..hard to believe one so young, in love with vintage. Style within!
