I bought my first really nice vintage frock at an antiquarian show in Paris when I was 20. The dollar was high then, and a beautiful piece of black chiffon and lace from the 1930s cost only $25--still the most I'd ever paid for a dress. I've always been in love with the styles of the past, but I haven't always had the means to wear them ... even in my many years of thrift-store shopping. O the dresses I used to buy for $5 at Thrift Town in Albuquerque! Or Thrift Village in San Diego!
So I've been a collector and wearer of vintage lovelies since college days--and I still wear many of those pieces! (Yes, I've kept that original Foire aux Antiquaires dress but, alas, it's a hair too tight.) I've also taken to buying old patterns and making custom-fit frocks to suit my height. And what vintageous outfit would be complete without some pretty gems to drip and sparkle, plus a handbag…
