How to have a dressing table like Jean Harlow's ...

Dressing tables were very much 'de rigeur' until the 1960's.

I particularly love pressed glass, and have found a range at Waitrose by John Lewis. A few are stocked on their website http://www.johnlewis.com/search/eastern-glass?_requestid=41491

For dressing table ideas read this lovely post by Decades of Elegance

I visited Filene's Basement in Boston (now sadly closed) some years ago, a great place for bargain vintage shopping!


Have you any Filene's Basement stories?
