True Vintage: RAF Compact

Today I'm sharing one of my absolute favourite vintage pieces --this amazing RAF compact purse.

I got this compact purse from Herman Brown Vintage and it was still in it's original wrapping complete with fake cigarettes in the side, the original powder puff (I've since added power to the container), mirror and lipstick case.

The woman at the vintage store thought it would have been a possible gift for the military wives whose husbands were serving in the RAF.

I'm so excited to have found this! I just love the vintage RAF colour as well. I think I will try and make a military inspired dress to match the exact colour!!

Happy to give this exquisite piece a second life! YAY!

  1. What were RAF uniforms like in 1940? Were there women in the RAF at that time?
