My love for vintage was going to come out again. And, thanks to my best friend, Ashley, it got to come out sooner rather than later! You see, through Ash I found this great site that specializes in vintage clothes!! So, I promptly used some of my spending money to buy this great (real) Jessica McClintock's Gunne Sax skirt from the 70s and this adorable 50s cashmere sweater (I love it too!!). They came in the mail about 1 1/2 days before we were leaving for Houston and I chose to wear this skirt one day at Market.
What I thought was so great was that several ladies came up to me when I was there, saying something like, "I had a skirt just like that in 1973!", or "That's a gunne sax skirt, isn't it??". Too great! Even though I can't exactly pinpoint my favorite era for vintage clothes, the 1970s definitely holds some of my affections because it reminds me of my Mom growing up (she would have completely worn this skirt!), and all the cute outfits she tells us about that she wore.
So, yes, I am very happy! In fact, I was dancing around out there. Which isn't very surprising, since I dance whenever possible.
Hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving counting your blessings (that's what I'll be doing too)!!
