Noble Savage Vintage As Seen On Boardwalk Empire

One of the more obvious perks of operating  Noble Savage Vintage out of NYC is the access to shows and events such as Manhattan Vintage clothing Show, which is just wonderful for connecting small business owners, such as myself to a world of clientele within film and television, theater and fashion as well as some pretty fabulous vinties.  

I have been very fortunate over the past few years to provide quite a few pieces to the team behind Boardwalk Empire.  Mainly tuxedos and waistcoats, which typically are not the easiest pieces to spot on TV.  However,  while watching the Season 4 Premier, I was extremely excited to spot  June Thompson, portrayed by Nisi Sturgis, wearing one of my favorite dresses during the Thompson family dinner scene.  This early 1920’s dress was sold last winter in near mint condition and is fabricated in an incredible forest green crinkled silk.  It’s bodice features a lovely hand done embroidery and there is the cutest little padded heart shaped pocket on the hip.  How thrilling it is to see one of my all time favorite dresses on one of my all time favorite shows!  Hopefully we will spot a few more pieces during Season 4.

Ellen Kaye Dresses

I recently added this fun and fabulous 1940’s Conversational Print dress by Ellen Kaye to my shop Noble Savage Vintage on Ruby Lane. It is one of my favorite pieces and I just adore it’s quirky print, which consists of a repeat of swordfish and a ladies head. I typically see 1950’s dresses from this maker. I decided to do a little bit of research.

1940’s Ellen Kaye Conversational Print Dress

It turns out that the name has been around since 1922, trademarked by LANG-KOHN, INC. of  ST. LOUIS.   Apparantly , St. Louis was the origin of the junior apparel craze.   In 1926,  Lang-Kohn, Inc. would become the company, that manufactured the first junior size garments in the country.  I found quite a few Ellen Kaye ads in the Newspaper archives and thought I would share a few.

The Vintage Box Purse

I had recently added quite a few box purses to my Noble Savage Vintage shop on  Etsy.  I hadn’t realized how many I have picked up over the past year and have really come to appreciate the diversity in materials and aesthetic.  Here are a few selections.  I hope you enjoy.

This purse features a pierced brass plated metal body with an opaque marbled grey plastic top and base and a clear lucite handle.

What to Wear for the 4th of July

July 4th is just around the corner, and this year falls on a Wednesday.  What will you wear?  Many of us will be heading out after work to catch the fireworks and may be looking for a few practical yet stylish ideas.  Whether you are planning an evening  picnic or are booking a boat for your firework viewing,  nothing could be more perfect than Vintage attire.  Here are a few comfy and classic suggestions available from Noble Savage Vintage on Ruby Lane or Etsy.

One of my favorite Forties dresses and a nice wearable size to boot.  This Classic blue rayon dress is trimmed in a white contrasted print.  All you will need to complete your look are a few fun, red accessories.  

1940’s Navy Rayon with Contrast Print

This classic 1960’s Shift dress in an attention grabbing red knit is both chic and comfortable. Just add a few blue and white bangles and a pair of flip flops and run.

1960’s Red Knit Dress Set

The White knit 1960’s dress features a row of rainbow colored zippers, including red and blue.  It’s a great size and silhouette and will be a  favorite choice all Summer long.

1960’s Sacony Rainbow Zipper Dress

One of the most practical purses I have ever seen, this smart Mod beauty features a matching umbrella/ parasol. Whether you need to shade yourself from the sun or protect yourself from those sudden Summer showers, you will treasure this purse for years to come.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

May Flowers have been the inspiration for many fabulous floral prints throughout time.  Print trends come and go, but the flower is never out of style.  These cheerful prints make us smile, even on a gloomy day.    Noble Savage Vintage is offering a lovely variety of Floral Dresses in our shops on Ruby Lane and on Etsy.  Let’s take a stroll through the past and find a vintage dress perfect for today.

Imagine yourself walking across a field of flowers, a gentle breeze rustling the soft taffeta.  Now imagine yourself on the dance floor, dancing the charleston.  There are Jazz Age and Gatsby parties popping up around the world and 1920’s fashion is hot, hot, hot.  Grab this fabulous frock before it’s gone.

Moving on to the 1930’s and the use of zippers as a fashion element.  A little bit of practicality, blends with a touch of sexy, and a dab of sweetness.  This is a beautiful floral print on a blue silky rayon that caresses the curves.  So easy to wear, just zip in and run!  My favorite detail is that fabulous puffed sleeve cap.

Moving on to the 1940’s and The cotton floral house, or day dress.  This dress is way to pretty to be cooped up inside.  Check out the eye catching red buttons and the adorable ric rac trim.  Get ready for a little daytime swing!

Alright you Mad Men fans.  This is the Classic late 1950’s to early 1960’s cotton day dress cut in the fabulous and feminine New Look silhouette.  I may be pushing it a bit calling this a floral print, but it seems to be blue flowers, or possibly berries of even bubbles.  Regardless, it is a fantastic vintage dress as fresh and fashionable today as the day it was made.

I hope you have enjoyed out trip through the vintage flower garden.  These are just a small selection of what we are offering in our shops on Ruby Lane and Etsy.
