What I Wore on Wednesday - March 4, 2015

by mary March 4, 2015

Wednesday's Dorothea's Closet Vintage outfit was a deep blue 1940s Eisenberg Originals jacket with padded shoulders, superwide lapels, faux fur collar/lapels & cuffs, & rhinestone pins.  This is one of my very favorite 1940's pieces!

Eisenberg began in 1924 as a clothing wholesaler & often included rhinestone jewelry on their clothing  In the 1930s, Eisenberg started its jewelry line, for which it is primarily known.  Eisenberg stopped making clothing in 1958, but continues to make jewelry even today.

With my Eisenberg jacket, I wore a French charm necklace that I made with a small Cialenga perfume bottle I picked up in a consignment shop in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin; as well as Ile de France link from a vintage souvenir bracelet, Eiffel tower charm, Saint Gerard medal, fleur de lis, & French coins.  The beads are lapis lazuli to complement the blue on the Ile de France link.  For the chain, I used both silver & goldtone cable chain to complement the gold & silver charms.  While mixing gold & silver used to be considered a "faux pas" in terms of fashion rules, it's been described as one of the hottest trends the last few years!

I also wore a pair of blue crystal bead earrings that I made with blue glass crystal beads from a broken vintage necklace I found at a garage sale. 

And that's it for this Wednesday.
