If you click on the title of this blog entry, it will take you to an interview with me! The wonderful Malie, editor of the VSG, sent me an excellent in-depth email questionnaire, and then yesterday, we actually went vintage shopping in Brooklyn together! I discovered a fantastic vintage store and a lot of not-fantastic vintage stores. And in person, she was delightful.
The day before, Saturday, I had a private appointment with a seller and got some AMAZING plus-sized 40s and 50s vintage dresses! Woo-hoo! Here's a couple of them. These are just test shots, they aren't listed yet, but look for them at my shop on Specialist Auctions, which I have renamed The Mad Fashionista's Plus Size Boutique. For instance, this mid-1940s navy beauty with a lavender hip swag, three huge rhinestone buttons, and the original belt!
(It happens to fit me perfectly! I HATE when that happens!)
This stunning green beaded 1930s gown, with amazing seaming on the shoulders and below the waist:
And this XXXL dress of some kind of heavy black satiny material, with peach trimmed pockets and studs around the neckline:
In the meantime, over on Ebay, I have up for sale a wholesale "wounded bird" lot of dresses in need of a little TLC, mostly mending. It is REALLY a pain not to be able to sew...there's only so much I can push off on Mom!
Hope you are all seeing lots of green, whatever your venue.
