The 50s were a time of fun and laughter with more time to play and less worries than of years past. This vintage Schiaparelli sweater from the 50s reflects the playfulness of its designer, Elsa Schiaparelli with its beaded front and corded design accents. It reminds me of the Lucy dresses and poodle skirts with bobby socks! A baby blue vintage Schiaparelli sweater from the 50s is sure to be a hit! Who else will be wearing a Schiaparelli? Or a Schiaparelli that even resembles THIS one? You can claim this for yourself at http://www.denasvintagecloset.com/ see the VINTAGE SEPARATES category - vintage tops.
It bears the label "styled by Schiaparelli Paris".

One of my all- time favorites in coats is this beautiful Vintage Lilli Ann coat! It is made of a hand-loomed brocade fabric with a mink collar! It is a fabulous example of one of the elaborate designs of
Adolph Schuman. He was the founder of Lilli Ann in San Francisco in 1933. He named the company after his wife Lillian!
Lilli Ann of Paris & San Francisco is on this label. This coat is made of high quality hand-loomed fabric with the utmost care! This one is in excellent wearable condition! Not just the same old thing in Dena's Vintage Closet! Designer labels and quality vintage coats and dresses along with all of the accessories are at http://www.denasvintagecloset.com/!
The 50s brought about great excitement and a zeal for life after the war and the Great Depression. People were ready for change much like today! The clothing industry had new ideas and designs that were made famous by many designers. Nelly Don was one of the famous clothing manufacturers of that time. Her company headquarters was in Kansas City, Missouri. Nelly Don manufactured 75 million dresses from 1916 to 1978. It was the largest manfacturer of the 20th Century! Nelly Don was named after its founder Ellen Quinlan Donnelly Reed. Her company made fabulous 50s dresses as well as uniforms for the women in the military and factories. Some of the Nelly Don 50s dresses like this one are in Dena's Vintage Closet! Check out all the dresses at http://www.denasvintagecloset.com/!
