Oh, the joy of being a Vintage Clothing lover! I wandered out the other day to do a wee bit of shopping, as my daughter is sick and we have been cooped up for far too long for this suburban socialite. . .
At the very last moment I decided to make a quick stop at one of my favorite "haunts" ( you know. those "High Security" zones that no one else knows about. . .should you disclose location you will be eliminated. . .) and I ran across this Vintage Beauty:
My heart skipped a beat
Well, maybe 25 beats, once I realized I didn't have enough cash
and my credit card was useless
at this establishment. . .
What's a girl to do?
I did the mental dance,
you know the one:
"I already have enough inventory to fill a floor on Macys"
"This is a bit on the wild side. . .other's may not see the vintage beauty of it. . ."
and I left
without the coat. . .
But I went back today and you'll never guess
IT WAS STILL THERE!
Are these two vintage treasures related?
My sister gave me this gorgeous Vintage Bag years ago
and I love it for the simple fact
that the strap is long enough to wear over the shoulder.
(A rare "wonderful" with vintage purses)
When I found this gorgeous coat,
I was obsessed with the thought:
"Is my Vintage Brocade Purse a Match?"
ARE THEY RELATED?
I do not think so. . .
