Letting Go...Starting With Emilio Pucci

I have decided that I am going to let go of a few pieces of my "most hoarded" vintage collection. It is making me hyperventilate a little just to think about doing it, let alone actually doing it!

I will start with my matching set of Emilio Pucci for Formfit Rogers lingerie. These carefully hoarded pieces have been in my collection for quite a few years. The set consists of a fabulous slip dress with a built-in underwire bra and a matching pair of panties.

Letting go is good for you, right?

I have just listed both items in my store, ClubVintage over at Etsy.

Ah Shucks Guys....

I just returned from a two week trip, a perfect mix of buying & relaxing...what fun!
I will be offering up some of my newest finds in the next few weeks over at my Etsy store Club Vintage so be sure to check in frequently so you don't miss any of the new vintage beauties.

I am also getting ready to go back to my "real" job working at a high school as the new school year is fast approaching. I want to share this school themed picture...I love the expressions, enjoy!

Back To School Fashions

New fashions for the back to school crowd have always been important. Girls from eleven to nineteen will make the grade with two-piece dresses this fall. They can be worn with a sweater on campus or with a blouse either on the campus or in town. The swing skirts are comfortable and flattering. Colors this fall will be cinnamon brown or bronze green. Plaids will also be popular.

This is the forecast for the fall of 1937 according to Country Gentleman magazine.
