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:

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!

“The fabulous Carole Tanebaum is offering a 20% discount to Mrs-O.org readers who purchase vintage jewelry from CaroleTanenbaum.com between now and December 31.
Ms. Tanebaum is a Toronto-based, world-renowned collector of vintage costume jewelry…Carole Tanebaum’s carefully curated collection now includes more than 15,000 pieces of vintage jewelry, dating from the Victorian era to the 1980s.

This is a great deal from a great blog. Mrs. O follows the fashions of our extremely stylish First Lady, and indeed Michelle Obama is often seen wearing vintage costume jewelry from the Carole Tanenbaum collection.
Check out both sites for some serious coveting…although with a 20% discount you may be able to do more than just admire from afar!
And if anyone’s wondering, I’ll take these:
