Little red accent gloves will take you just about anywhere — but most of those places will require that you wear pants *wink*

I might as well; the snow isn’t going anywhere. *sigh*

But wouldn’t a coat like this be superb for going out & about, making those holiday returns and exchanges?  Sloshing about was never so chic!

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house…

Well, creatures would be stirring (especially in his pajama bottoms!) if you wore a nightgown with a lace bodice like Ava Gardner…

I guess I should leave you alone right now — if not with your man, than at least alone with your thoughts. *wink*

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a goodnight!

True white doesn’t exist in most antique textiles, but the beauty of this Edwardian era tambour net lace gown is as pure as the driven snow and as romantic as the film Titanic — let’s just hope it has a happier ending. (Which it will, if you buy it and love it!)

OK, this here’s a fur post — if you don’t like fur, don’t throw fake blood on my blog; just click away.

I personally don’t have any problem whatsoever with vintage furs; what’s done is done.  And as far as fur in general, well, I can’t afford anything other than vintage… But if I could… Well, I’m not opposed to certain furs from animals, like leather, which are used for more than just fur — like rabbit.

This isn’t technically an “all white” post if you are looking past the accessories, but who can argue with a Debbie Reynold’s holiday pin-up photo? The adorable muff, headpiece and trim are likely white rabbit fur.

Everybody’s busy this week, so I’m keeping my posts short and sweet — maybe not as short & sweet as the lingerie on Grace Bradley, but still… *wink*

Vintage Lingerie: The Foundation For Vintage Fashion

By , 18 December, 2008, No Comment

Vintage fashion lovers know the foundation to any vintage fashion is literally the foundation garments; you need bras, panties and other lingerie which can smoothly fit and shape beneath your clothing to help give the proper silhouette. And of course, it’s just much sexier lingerie.
