I am a photographer whose world, imagination, and life revolve around fashion, art, music, and all things vintage. I will share in this blog eclectic things from all eras that inspire me, oddities in life that I find curious, and my own photography.

Charles James | “Butterfly” | c. 1955

James’ ultimate version of the tightly fitted bustle dresses of the early 1880s, this dress emphasizes the feminine form with its body-conscious sculpted sheath and enormous bustle skirt that would move seductively with the wearer’s movement. The femininity is further emphasized by the satin side flanges that are not unlike a bird’s wing bone attached to a burst of tulle feathers. The dress weighs 18 pounds. Twenty five yards of tulle were used in its making.
