More Vintage Estate Sale Items Yeah!!!!

I am still sifting through the great finds from the Opera singer Inez Bull. Another find was a fabulouse Gunne Sax edwardian style dress that is cream lace and hunter green velvet. I really love this one! Wow is all I can say about the 20's opera coat from a store that was found in the 1870's named Best & Co. The coat is a gold silk brocade design and is throughout the entire coat. It is still in great condition with a big round collar that can stand up or down.

Dame Inez Bull Estate

I recently went to a great estate sale and found so many lovely pieces that belonged to a great woman by the name of Inez Bull. I was shocked to find out that she was a pianist, writer, and museum owner. She was the ancestor of a great violinist Ole Bull, from which a museum was created in the memory of him. Inez Bull performed in front of many crowds, including royalty, cruise ships, and more. She taught at the Julliard Institute of Musical Arts and sat on many boards such as The Victorian Society.
I am working on the items this week and next week. Here are a couple of pictures so far

Don't Fall In Love With Your Merchandise

Last week I found this lovely mint green Asian style quilted robe by Lord and Taylor from the 60's that I am drooling over. I keep telling myself to just treat yourself and keep it, but on the other hand do I really need another vintage robe NOOOOOOO! So guess what it is up for grabs in the shop Le'Moore Boutique. You will not be upset to take a peak!!!
