Suit by Swansdown, Jr.

Suit label
I finally had the chance to download pictures from my camera today, something I've been meaning to do for awhile now. Anyway, here are some pictures of my 1950s suit that I promised to share. I also have pictures of 1930s and 1940s outfits that were taken the same time but I will save those for another post. 

The suit is wool and cashmere blend by Swansdown, Jr. of New York. It's very soft and cozy to wear. I worn the jacket to work last week and received a lot of complements. I have a reception for an art show later this week and I'm thinking of wearing the skirt with a white cardigan. I tried doing some research on Swansdown but wasn't able to find very much information online. Oh well, I did find some really cool images though. :)

Me trying to be a Vogue model but failing and making a funny face instead.

Thank you Cori for your help and patience in taking pictures.

  1. Just saw this post front and center on VintageGazer. Marvelous Darling:) You look fabulous in your suit.

  2. Thanks Joanna! Can you believe this is the only time I've worn the suit?? Well I've worn the jacket to work once or twice but that's it. Maybe now that's it's getting cooler out I'll have the chance to wear it again.
