The Mad Fashionista At The Manhattan Vintage Show!

DAHLINGS –

Brace yourselves! There has been a very good reason that yours truly has not been around to dictate this blog-thing. Even though I chastise myself for not attending to your need for my continuing adventures, mon cher readers.

The reason is:

I SHALL BE APPEARING THIS WEEK AT THE MANHATTAN VINTAGE SHOW IN NEW YORK CITY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, APRIL 25 & 26!

Stupéfier, non? Yes, your faithful correspondent is happy to announce that she is the guest of MATINEE NEW YORK, the premiere source of men's and women's vintage clothing supplied to the film and theater industry, and owner of one of the largest collections of men’s vintage in the known universe. Of course, I only associate with the best people.


But you knew that. That’s why you are reading this on the Internet instead of lounging in my sitting room.

Be that as it may:

Two huge racks shall be bulging with my mâchoire-chute beau
PLUS-SIZE vintage, from the 1930s to the 1980s! Others may pretend to the throne upon which I rest, but I shall prove I reign supreme. And look fabulous while doing it.

Through hours of ceaseless toil (well, my assistant’s ceaseless toil, anyway) the finest of my collection has been chosen and readied for your delectation. Here is just a tiny taste of what is in store!

For contrast, through the decades--first, the ultra-Mod 60s white plastic raincoat by Prestige, with matching rainhood and carrying case!



Going back into the past to the 1920s, feast your eyes on this pure silk jet-black flapper dress of charmeuse and velvet, with the original jet buttons, size XXXL!



For the young at heart, a sweet gingham 50s dress in lavender with white novelty rhinestone buttons, XL:



And New Old Stock with tags, this precious flowered full-skirt dress with a tie-belt:



For the woman of more conservative taste, this 70s NOS paisley cotton blend day dress with white novelty pockets:



And to close for now, this crystal opal cocktail ring in a band of 18kt gold!



And there will be so much more. Coats, plus size lingerie, separates, shoes...the mind boggles. To see all of this in person, not to mention moi, come to:
