What I Wore on Wednesday - September 24, 2014

by mary September 24, 2014

Today's Dorothea's Closet Vintage outfit is one of my favoriate 1940's dresses -- a really lovely black Eisenberg & Sons dress with the classic padded shoulders & yellow beaded butterflies scattered across the front & sleeves! 

Although Eisenberg is most often associated with fine rhinestone jewelry, Eisenberg & Sons, Inc. was originally formed in 1914 as a perfume & clothing company for women.  Eisenberg stopped making clothing in 1958, while they continue to make jewelry even today.

I don't have a lot of yellow jewelry, so wasn't sure at first what I could wear with this dress.  Then Iremembered that I had a charm bracelet that included vintage yellow buttons! 

It features yellow & blue "pinwheel" buttons that I picked up at a garage sale & flea market, as well as several charms that I thought fit with the idea of sewing -- including a little scissors, thimble & iron! 

I saw that I still had 2 of the yellow pinwheel buttons left, sw made this pair of yellow pinwheel button earrings to go with the bracelet!

I used silver beads to complement the silver charms in the bracelet.
