1930s sailor girl

I don't think I've photographed this blouse before. Oh wait, yes I have, in Astoria. Well my point is I wear it way more than you see it. Wouldn't you?

I got it for less than a song, and while I'm certain at one time long ago it had a cute little matching skirt or sailor pants, this is what survived. I've only ever seen this top from the 1940s in old catalogues, so I'm sure it's rare, and even rarer to find a set.

It's also rare that my attempt at waves looks decent. These are...ok. But I quite like the look of spitcurls :)

You're not allowed to complain about your curl-ability as soon as you inspire constant curl envy in me :D

You got it for "less than a song"? - sweet! This outfit is perfect in every way. :-)

The sailor top! The white socks! My goodness, this outfit is so adorable, and you look great.

It is a testament to that, because usually I avoid sailor stuff like the plague. But I love this!

Wow Solanah,

I have seen many sailor girl looks, but none as lovely as yours! It is truly stunning and totally inspiring.

By the way what color are your eyes I can't quite tell???

Great photos! Had an addiction to sailor outfits. When I was a little younger (the 80's) and could get away with it -- loved to wear sailor blouse with a navy satin bow in my crazy long red hair and red nails, red lips and plaid school girl pleated skirt and saddle shoes. When I had my son, Charlie, he had about 20 sailor outfits. You can never have too many sailor outfits. Ahoy!

Casey said...

Too darling!!!! :) This is making me want to break out my sailor outfit to wear today (and steal one of my husband's "Dixie Cup" hats ;)!
