Autumn is without a doubt my favourite time of the year. It’s the most vintage friendly season, as long as it’s not raining that is, when I can wear a 1950s skirt suit, like the Handmacher beauty in the picture below, or a dress, without the need of having to cover it with a coat.
My name is Dominique de Merteuil. I'm a vintage fashion writer, a passionate, self-taught fashion historian with a proclivity for extensive research. The 1930s-1950s dress-detective. My credo: LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WEAR ORDINARY CLOTHES!
