1930s Orange and Blue

Whilst looking for orange dresses for yesterdays post, I came across this amazing vintage 1930s head piece, and I just had to share. Isn't it stunning?

A 1930s showgirl headpiece 

The long blue ostrich feathers are highlighted with sparkly orange beaded wires, and smaller orange feathers are clustered above the blue sequinned skull cap.  Maybe the show girl looked something like this.

I think orange and blue is a wonderful colour combination (I may have mentioned this before), and it seems to have been quite popular in the 1930s.

I think I need some blue and orange when I create my 1930s wardrobe.
