Daisy, Daisy give me a murder to!?

So as you probably know by now that I love to read a lot. In fact I read on average five to six detective fiction or historical non-fiction books a week. To say I that I consume books, that I’m a ravid reader or a bibliophile of Biblical proportions is an understatement! I’ve recently discovered the amazing Daisy Dalrymple murder mystery series by Carola Dunn.

So where to start with 1930s fashion? I could mention the glamorous cut-on-the-bias evening dresses made by Madeline Vionnet or the surrealist fashions of Elsa Schiaparelli but this would not be doing justice to the entire decade and how transitional it was to fashion history. We start the decade with the Great Depression and end the decade with the outbreak of World War Two in 1939. Read on to find out more and listen to my latest podcast at the bottom of the post!
