Thrifting Find: 1940s Era Vintage Suit


September 14, 2013 by FoodforPenny


This week I found this amazing Vintage Suit. I’m so in love! It makes me want to wear it to the office with my fishnet “stockings” and thick heels and call everyone “tiger” and “slick” and wink a lot… maybe even take up smoking a skinny cigarette for the occasion.

I used to work at Kelly Services’ global headquarters. This suit reminds me of Kelly’s roots, the original Kelly Girl brand they used in pioneering temporary staffing. If I still worked there, I’d be wearing this on Halloween for sure!

I love the tag on it; “R&K Originals – for the girl who knows clothes”. The girl who wore this was very petite. I couldn’t zip the skirt all the way over my size 4 post-babies belly pooch.

I’ve listed it on eBay, for any interested U.S. buyers!

    Isn’t it great how some clothes can change your personality into something else entirely.
