Due to some unforeseen happenings since Thursday, I have sorely ignored my blog, and also, since the last two days, all those that I follow. I hope to get caught up tonight, as I miss reading all the great stuff that everyone posts!
This is just a quickie, getting-back-into-the-swim type post.
I love vintage, particularly vintage fashion, and have collected and sold it for quite a long time. I found this hilarious, short video on YouTube on "Fashions of the Future" (pay particular
attention to the guy at the end - love his "cell phone" )
As mentioned, I have sold vintage over the years and every so often I sell an item that several years later I could kick myself for. The two evening gowns below are examples of this. I was going through some old pic files a short while ago and came across, this mid 50s dress, blush champagne shade, heavily embroidered and beaded bodice and full triple layered skirt. So 'swish' as they say in the above video.
(and no, sadly, that is not the hallway in my house)
The second gown that I could really kick myself over is this 50s gorgeous gold and gold satin damask, with knife pleated inserts on the skirt, which made for one humongous sweep. These pics are old and definitely do not do this beauty justice. I remember I sold this for a ridiculously low price. *sigh*

Hope everyone had a super weekend ....the upcoming week will be grand, right? Right!
