It might be warmer in Los Angeles than in many parts of the country, but make no mistake, its cold here too ( that means below 65 degrees). Despite it being the day after Christmas, I felt compelled to grab this very early 1930s yellow feedsack dress out of my closet. ┬áThe reason that the fabric is referred to as feedsack┬áhas a whole history that dates back to the Great Depression. Companies would place feed in sacks made from color cotton fabrics. Women would then use these fabrics to make dresses and other garments. I paired it with a vintage pair of sunglasses from the 1940s, a cloche from the late 1920s/early 30s and a pair of “Anitas” by Remix which is one of my all time favorite reproduction shoes ( I have pretty much every color!)
