Always silk velvet! Vintage scarves, and beautiful shoes! I design and my work includes the entire look from head to toe - shoes to hats and everything in between - the clothing, under garments, accessories, jewelry, and makeup. The whole look! On my Etsy shop I will be selling vintage clothing and very special shoes from my personal collection and later on - selections from the things I make.

Please visit my blog ladyviolette.com where I wrote about vintage clothes and vintage shoes in my personal collection and other things that inspire me.
