1970’S HIGH-WAIST PANTS COMPLETE AN ENSEMBLE!

When it rains it pours. I’d been snooping for some well-fitting, stylish true vintage pants and the Universe delivered. Another pair of tailored slacks made very similarly to the ones shown from my last expedition but these set the bar a notch higher. In linen, with a full lining and beautifully-made.

Though the color is gorgeous, it can be a bit dodgy to coordinate effectively with anything but black or white. However . . . . . . . . . . . last year I had uncovered this lovely silk blouse with 1980’s – early 1990’s styling. Loved the color combo but also didn’t have just the right things to wear it with. Well, you see what happens . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Hang on. There’s more to come ——-

MORE RARE FINDS – PINK KENNEDY ERA SPRING COAT

img_2107

This has been a week of more and more unusual and rare discoveries.  No, I have not found a pink lab coat – it is a lower-end Easter coat made of faux linen or shantung material that pretends to be a more elegant item with the up-scale-looking fabric and decorative tabs at the waist.  Better buttons would certainly transform it.

I have NEVER seen one like this!  Lightweight, but fully lined.  It’s very well-designed and the tailoring is nice for a less-expensive garment.  I can’t imagine wearing it, but even today it would be just the thing for some girly girl to wear over her pretty Spring frock.

Some early – 1960’s lady did enjoy it and took exceptional care.  This coat was obviously kept for special occasions only.  Very out-of-season right now, but I just had to show you. Can only imagine what’s around the corner – stay tuned. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

TRUE VINTAGE NOVELTY MID-CENTURY LINEN TOWEL – THE MOST SEXIST EVER!

Can you believe this?  It’s so awful it just cracks me up!!

Thank goodness things have changed so much that this is just funny.  I couldn’t possibly pass it up!

I just love these old novelty linens – aprons, tablecloths, napkins, etc.  Some of them are really cute but it’s hard to believe that things like this one were “normal” stuff that most people bought.

I’ve got more “new” true vintage mid-century finds to show you, but couldn’t resist posting this one first . . . . . . . . .
