I've decided that since not much is happening with my wardrobe at present (although I did wear 30s style lounging pyjama pants yesterday) I would start looking a bit at fashion in art - maybe a different vintage painting each week.
To begin, is this portrait of Peg Oldfield from 1931, painted by Australian artist Douglas Dundas (1900-81). This painting hangs at the Brisbane Art Gallery. Peg Oldfield was an illustrator, and probably moved in the same circles as Dundas in Sydney.
