You never know the life a piece has lived.  Who loved this item first, where it has been waiting before you found it, and where it will it end up next. The answers to these questions are a large part of why I love vintage clothing so much. It has a story.

The French 75 Vintage shop

When I first found this vintage 1950s robe I knew it was special, it has such a unique and pretty pattern. I was simply delighted when this sweet robe with yellow and purple flowers was purchased for a production in England. We shipped it off right away and crossed our fingers it would make it in time for the production.

A RAISIN IN THE SUN

The robe did make it across the pond in a few days (thankfully due to Fed EX) and we were sent these amazing production photos from the play ‘A Raisin In The Sun’ – the story of a black family struggling in 1954 Chicago.

The best part is that the play has received great reviews and after a short run at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England it will tour the country for the next few months, with our ’50s robe!!

We are simply tickled pink to see how amazing this robe looks in the production photos and how it was paired with a gorgeous gold apron. She looks amazing in it. The wallpaper pattern and pattern of the robe make the scene look so vibrant. I’ve also fallen in love with the vintage fridge.. Jay isn’t convinced we should get one for our kitchen.

I hope you’ve enjoyed sharing in the journey of ’50s robe. We always love to see how our items are loved by their new owners. xo
