Spring time in the 1920s


This week I've got three new 1920s releases as well as a 1930s bathing suit!

This lovely Peggy Hoyt gown works for both day or night time wear.

Edward Molyneux inspired this day suit.  The flowing lines and pleated skirts are quite elegant.  Mink stole and hat as well as the shoes are included.

A blonde mink stole compliments this pretty spring dancing dress.  Silver beadwork on mauve silk with a cutout back is an ultra feminine ode to the season!

Finally, Ruby, a fun wool swimsuit from the 1930s.  The sunglasses and shoes are included.  Yes, the sunglasses are from the 1930s!

All of these items are now up on Marketplace as well as available at the main store of Rosewood.

Cordially yours,

The Curious Cobbler presents . . . shoes, glorious 1920s shoes!


Today Curious Seamstress will be releasing 18 pairs of shoes from the 1920s!  I promised a while back that eventually I would do that.  I finally made a shoe that satisfies my persnickety side!  I did a lot of research into the various styles of that decade for shoes.  I was sometimes surprised by the amount of color and styles.  From our end of history nearly a hundred years later, we most often tend to view that time period in black and white when nothing could be further from the truth.  I found a few colored ads for shoes and what revelations those were!  I started with the most common form of shoe, the ankle strap heel.  It comes in 18 colors with various textures.  Some are original and match dresses I've done recently, most are textures I've had in my files for a long while.  Here are half of what will be available today.

For today, the shoes will be released late in the morning in a vendor at the main store of Rosewood.  Over the week, they will appear in other stores like the Carrington at Seraph City and Curious Seamstress at New Toulouse.  They are $150 lindens a pair. 

I hope you enjoy these sweet treats!

cordially yours,
The Curious . . . Cobbler!
