Paris Fashion - 1934

Today we continue our look at Paris fashions of the 1930s.  Here, from 1934, are clothes to take you from day to dinner to evening in style.  Which is your favorite?

Brown wool knit daytime dress with stripe knit accents by Bernard et Cie.

Bruyere made this dinner dress in black wool decorated with black patent leather "jewels".

Charles Frederick Worth gray wool dress with capelet and muff trimmed in gray Astrakhan fur.

Lucile Paray pink silk crepe evening gown trimmed with sable fur.

Callot Soeurs brown silk velvet evening gown trimmed in wolf fur at the hem.

The creative use of stripes on the brown wool knit appeals to me, but so does the Worth with Astrakhan. If forced to choose, though, I'd pick the Worth because of the elegance and drama added by the fur.

The first suit is a "must have" if I were small enough!

First, your blog is great! I look forward to it for the added "pretty" in my life :)

The brown wool with stripes is stunning and chic; but, it also looks like a lot of talent went into creating it.
