1930s Photoshoot with Elspeth for Royal Vintage Shoes

Gosh, I’ve been so busy I’ve forgotten to share SO much! Time to back up and show you the pretty pictures!

I put together a photo shoot with Elspeth, a local artist, musician, and model, who to me had a wonderfully 1930s Myrna Loy kind of look. We styled her in the Wearing History “Strawberry Moderne” dress, with a dapper hat from HistoricalVintage on Etsy, and a pair of red and white “Sylvia” 1930s pumps from our new retro shoe shop, Royal Vintage Shoes.

We shot at the University of Nevada, Reno, and had a great time. I’m super happy with the result, and Elspeth absolutely “killed it” with the poses. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

While the dress and hat are one of a kind pieces and not available to purchase, you can find the “Sylvia” shoes in the 1930s section of our new shop. They also come in black/white and tan/white.

    Hi. I would have loved to see: Correct earrings, and bracelet; especially as the outfit is sleeveless, no necklace is needed with that novelty neckline. Also, handbag and gloves are sorely missing; no lady of that time would step out the door without them; large numbers of handbags/gloves in a closet was a mark of status. Bare-handed woman who showed up for appointments/errands were considered shocking/vulgar. Hair, hat, and dress were on point, keep up the good work.

    Anonymous… nope… not according to my Grandmother who lived in the country and was dirt poor. Gloves were a Sunday or party thing.
