Guess who’s back!

I’m back, from outer space! (or, from Alabama.)

So, about all that blogging I was planning on doing on the joys of costuming? Didn’t happen. For the last couple months, I’ve been so busy I barely had time to keep up with my email, much less my blog. But, I had a great time in spite of the stress and challenges, and most importantly, the show looked FANTASTIC. I know I am a bit biased, but the costumes were excellent and the cast looked gorgeous.

And now, life is back to normal.

Which means that my Etsy shop is back to normal, too! Most importantly, my shipping schedule is back to normal. I have about a million new things to post, so check back here or at my store for the latest. Expect a major sale in the very near future, as well – it’s a little late for spring cleaning (at least in Florida, anyway), but I’m ready to clean house all the same! I will, of course, post all about it when the time comes.

I feel like I’m slowly reacquainting myself with the internet at large – I’ve had such limited time to keep myself informed about the fashion world and what’s going on in the realm of vintage clothes. Here are a few things that caught my eye of late:

Couture Allure’s 4 part series looking at the designs of Luis Estevez – so gorgeous:

1960 Part 1

1960 Part 2

1961 Part 1

1961 Part 2

The Sartorialist has been running a vintage photo contest, with some really stunning selections. They’re peppered throughout his blog, but check out some of my favorites:

“With the Boys”



“Alejandro & Mom”

Michelle Obama in Peter Soronen, on Mrs. O:

She’s so pretty! Click the picture for the full link, with more shots of this beautiful ensemble.

The FIDM Museum Blog posted a great interview with Deborah Cook, costume designer for the animated film Coraline: read it here.

That’s all for now. I’m glad to be back! Don’t forget to check out my Etsy shop for pretty vintage things!

Big News! Etsy Shipping Schedule Changes and More

Until further notice, due to my recent schedule changes, I am only going to be shipping out Etsy orders once a week, on Mondays. For more information about what this means, read my full shipping policy. To shop my store for vintage goodies, click here!

Why the change, you (probably didn’t) ask? For the next few weeks, I’m going to be assisting a costume designer with the creation of a wardrobe for a musical at a University out of state. I’ll only be home on the weekends, hence the packing and shipping everything Monday on my way out of town. I’m pretty darn excited for the opportunity, if not the commute! Hopefully I’ll be able to update my blog here and there – the show spans the late 1940s/early 1950s, so my brain will be all stuffed with retro clothing styles. There’s bound to be something interesting enough to blog about in there.

Regardless of my blogging frequency, which is unreliable at best, I will definitely have access to my email on a regular basis – so any questions or convos sent to me on Etsy will be answered promptly. Like I say on my policies page, I will try to make exceptions where I can if anyone absolutely must-have something quicker than what my shipping schedule will allow.

Anyway, I’m off to pack. Shouldn’t be too hard to prepare for the week ahead – let’s hear it for the costumers’ uniform of black clothes, a chain of safety pins trailing off the shirt, tape measure scarf, and a pencil in the hair!

Sh!t I Can’t Afford Sunday – Velvet Edition

The holidays make me crave velvet. And rum-spiked eggnog, but that’s another story. Anyway, I’ve rounded up a few pieces that are making me consider a North Pole hostile takeover scheme – I’m assuming there must be elves up there with the sewing capabilities of a Hong Kong bespoke tailor – so that Santa and I can discuss my Christmas list face to face. Starting with this piece from my imaginary boyfriend Alexander McQueen (we’re very in love):

Seriously, you guys. This. Dress. It’s killing me. I want it so hard. I keep trying to think of something clever to say about it but I’m getting stymied by the fact that every time I look at it, my heart aches in a manner normally induced by surprised kittens and Welsh Corgi puppies. Here’s more pictures; weep with me:
Red McqueenRed Mcqueen

Now burst into tears, because it costs $3,395.00 oh no wait it’s on sale for $2,039.00.
Ugh. I can’t even talk about this one. Moving on.
Because I’m a glutton for punishment, here’s another McQueen piece. This time in navy, and cocktail length, but still with the 30s inspired silk velvet drape.
Alexander Mcqueen BlueAlexander Mcqueen Blue

This one’s on Net-a-Porter, for the low, low price of $1,638. Merry Christmas, everybody! You don’t own this dress.
You also probably don’t own this dress from Diane Von Fursternberg, but it’s at least slightly more attainable at $325.00.

While it’s out of my price range, it’s juuuust close enough to where it’s got me considering credit cards and limits and payment plans. I’m either going to need more or less rum – and fast – or I’m going to get into trouble.
On the vintage side of things, I need this in my life:
1920s Opera Coat
image from Unforgettable Vintage
From Unforgettable Vintage on Etsy, this reversible velvet and metallic brocade opera coat from the 1920s will set you back 1,400 bucks, but my goodness! Unforgettable, indeed!

Well, with my amazon.com wish list updated and the ninth commandment well and thoroughly broken (that’s the one about coveting your neighbor’s ass, ya’ll), I’m going to bring this to a close. I have a few red velvet Christmas bows left over from decorating, so I think I’ll go stick them to my head and pretend to be glamorous. Til next time!
