Style Spotlight: 70s Neo-Victorian

While Neo-Victorian makes us think of a style borrowed from the 19th century, it was in fact its own distinct fashion trend. Begun by none other than that notorious fashion icon Christian Dior in the late 1940s, his "new look" featuring cinched waists and sloped shoulders were designed to be "moulded upon the curves of the feminine body."

Reaching the mainstream consumers by the late 1960s, a soft feminine style highlighted by poof sleeves and lace trimmings defined the look.

Today, our obsession with 70s Neo-Victorian inspired my Victorian Vixen Earrings - cameo style dangles made from period-appropriate materials perfect for your interpretation of this sassy style!

Let's try this again...

Glamourpuss is not a techie girl. She still pens notes on the backs of coffee stained junk mail and carries grocery lists written on random scraps of paper. But the world wants new information- and now! So here I am, once again, attempting to share the nutty little notions that result in Glamourpuss Creations Vintage Modern Jewelry.

Winter is in full throttle here in Boston...I wonder if I'll ever see my backyard again. But the promise of Spring shows and the undertaking of building a new website keeps me occupied.

Lots of new designs are in the are a few to keep you warm
