New at Couture Allure - Vintage 1930s Clothing

I recently was lucky enough to purchase some wonderful 20s, 30s and 40s clothing from an estate that had been closed up for years.  The woman who owned these clothes had great taste and money to spend during the Depression era, a time when most women in this country did not have the ability to purchase expensive clothing.  Several of those pieces are now available at Couture Allure, with more coming in the next few weeks.  Be sure to check our What's New pages to see all the latest listings!

J: These finds are so awesome. You must be blown away to have access to estates like this. I can just imagine seeing a wealthy lady's perfectly-preserved wardrobe ready to be given to the next generation. What a thrill that would be. One of my goals in the next while is to find a way to tag along to a sale like this (of course, need to know the peeps who know the estates), just to look at the stash and see what it's like.

Such great finds! What a life this lady must have lived having the money to spend of such fabulous duds during the depression. :]
