Traveling 1940's Style


Whether by train, boat, or plane...the women of the 1940's traveled in high style. Hats and gloves accessorized the impeccably tailored suits and dresses of the well-dressed traveler. So leave those jeans and sweats behind and join two of the stars of Monolithic Studios on a journey of style.

A smart suit ensemble worn by film star Gene Marshall.
The re-styled jacket, borrowed from J'Adore Gene Marshall, is paired with a black skirt from Sandra Stillwell. Her uniquely shaped, off-the-face, tweed hat from The Couture Touch is in the mood of the moment and complements her fabulous pompadour hairstyle. Scarf is from Mattel. Gloves are from Ashton Drake. Handbag is from Robert Tonner. Earrings and bracelet are from an unknown designer. Brooch is from Facets by Marcia

Director Ivy Jordan
