Today is National Pink Day!

Ahh, one of this gal's favorite colors! A day to get in touch with your feminine side and do everything in pink! Let's see what I found that's vintage and pink...I'm sure the list can be nearly endless!

But how about a sweet pink dress?

Or a fabulous pink and purple Sara Cov demi parure?

OR a darling pink and white lavish 80s bustier bra! Not a bad price, either!

Too sweet! 60's pink pumps with matching toe clips!

Raise a toast to pink day -- I'll take a tiny bit of grenadine to my Sprite please!

Enjoy an ice cream soda!

Because today is Ice Cream Soda Day!

A wonderful day to stay cool and visit a traditional ice cream soda shop - do you have one in your area?

Ice Cream Soda's always make me happy :)

So, how does one celebrate ice cream soda day?

How about a look back at the 50's in a happy-go-lucky dress that any girl would have been proud to wear to visit the shop?

This would be my pick! A steal at only $58.00!

If you don't have a soda shop nearby, how about making your own using vintage ice cream soda glasses? Fun! Like these...pretty, blue, and only $12.00 plus shipping :) yay!

...happiness is just a click away!

...hot summer nights?

Gotta love vintage nylon, especially on those hot hot summer nights - which are coming right up! Nothing cools you, or feels more delicious against your skin that the delight of soft nylon :) I promise! At ehappyvintage, I'm working on listing more lingerie including this black slip by Van Raalte...nylon Suavette...if you're daring enough you could really wear it as a dress...it would be SHOW stopping!

Oh, and I've been running into more Lady Marlene bras (from all eras) that are just lovely...like this 50's Bra-S-Lette bustier! Isn't it just lovely?

...happiness is just a click away!

Weird, wacky, wonderful days!

Apparently, I'm a big procrastinator!

OK I admit it!

:) I'm a SAG, so that's my excuse!

I'm going to start writing about weird calender days - dates - holidays and finding some clothes to go along with - to celebrate those weird, funky, fun off-the-wall holidays....

because I love finding joy in each day that's given to me. :)

I'll try to keep up with this regularly but with baby on the way, soon...like 16 days before she's due, I may slack just a little but I'll be back to write more after she's born.

So, in looking at weird, funky holidays ... today is

Garfield the Cat Day


I love me some Garfield. So does my son. He has like 3 or 4 Garfield comic books and he'll just read them out loud to me and we laugh. :) Good times.

Anyway, what does a chic wear to celebrate Garfield the Cat Day?

Some ideas....

How about a cute little 70's apron? Ha ha it's too cute, and I found it on etsy! It says "Food's Fun"

Too cute!

How about a drink to celebrate lovable Garfield? In Garfield glasses of course! Tee hee!

Any way you choose to celebrate Garfield, here's hoping you have a happy day doing it!

OMG I feel like such a blog failure :-(

...since I haven't posted in like FOREVER! What's wrong with me? Well, I closed my ebay store for now, and posted a majority of my vintage clothing and lingerie inventory over to etsy or on my website. eBay's getting a little too unfriendly for me, and so I'll only be posting things there every once in a while to bring in a little traffic every now and again. Mostly, fetish things like lingerie and things of that nature :) you know, the things I love to sell!

So, my etsy shop is located here:
I offer free shipping on most items so be sure to check it out!

In other news, I found out I'm pregnant (due date 8.2 speculative for now), and so I won't get to enjoy a lot of my beloved vintage for a number of months. Boo hoo! However, I am on the look out for CUTE vintage maternity goods so let me know if you come across anything. It's way hard to find vintage maternity things that are CUTE too...actually it's hard to find newer maternity things that are CUTE too. Why?

Have a look at what I can't enjoy while pregnant :) so I get to offer them to you:
80s PURPLE Silky Nylon Jumper XL

Red Frilly Valentine Red Teddy Romper Large

Oh, and I found the most gorgeous candy apple patent red leather Frederick's of Hollywood 50's heels in a size 6 1/2...skyscraper 5" heels! OMG I'm excited I can't wait to get pictures taken of them :) I think if I were a 6 1/2 no one could ever pry them off my feet. I'd wear them all the time....I'm sure someone out there will enjoy them though!

Vintage or BUST!

Okay, I'm a little late on blog tag...eeek! Better late than never I guess!

1) Show us your favorite vintage slip in your inventory!
Currently, it's this one...a black Van Raalte deep pleated Suavette Nylon slip

2) Lace trim or chiffon trim? Whats your favorite?
Favorite is a combination of both...
WOWOWOW! like on this pink Van Raalte...WOW!

3)Colors or neutrals, whats your preference? Definitely, colors. Neutrals are pretty too but I'll never pass a chance to pick up slips of many colors! I love them.

4) Favorite label in vintage lingerie? I have several favorites. Van Raalte, for one their nylon is ultra luxurious and super soft. Vanity Fair, two for their silky nylon and anything 30's or 40's bias cut is wonderfully delicious.

5) Full slip or half? Most of the time, it's full slips for me but I do on occasion find myself a half slip that fits right in with my style Yummmy!

6) Slips worn as dresses in public? I personally don't, but if you have the body, and the color is right and you have the right accessories, you can pull it off I'm sure!

Let's Go Swimming!

VINTAGE OR BUST!~Blog Tag Wednesday~ Swim With the Fishes

Its time for Wednesday blog tag again! The temps are on the rise and its time to think about swimwear….what better way to stand out on the beach than in a vintage swimsuit? Lets hit the beach!

It absolutely has to be this Cole of California pin up worthy leopard print bathing suit. WOWeeee! Wish I could wear it!
Cole of California WILD GIRL! Leopard Bathing Suit

Likely, 50's because of the flattering draping, designs, etc. PINUP stuff is what I love!

I have lots but currently it's Cole of California, Rose Marie Reid, and DeWeese has some cute things too. Oh, and for 80's swimwear, I Looooooove Serena.

Great question! I'm thinking somewhere in St. Thomas...blue waters, fine sand, and sippin' on a Coco-Loco. Good times! Hey, when's vacation?

Haha, I just answered that. :-) Coco-Loco please!

My wish is a bikini and my reality is a one piece.

Dandy Candy Wednesday!

Over at eVintage Society, the blog tag train keeps rollin! It's Wednesday again I can't believe it!

We're talkin' about candy today....the colors of candy and vintage...all rolled into one delectable little morsel {for your pleasure}

1) What’s your favorite candy colored vintage piece in your collection?

Well, not clothing - but still vintage, I have a little sugar! Sugar beads, that is! In a nice, olive green color and metallic gold combination - sugar beads are plastic, acrylic, lucite beads that are covered in clear bits of 'sugar' aka teeny tiny clear micro beads or frit to give it that sugary coating. Popular in the 50's, but I've seen them in jewelry as old as 30's. Mine is from the 50's...sweet huh?

2. What’s the sweetest accessory you’re offering right now, or if you don’t have one for sale, tell us about one of your own!
The sweetest, most tempting accessory I'm offering has go to be this aurora borealis red-pink choker necklace. Sweet, inviting, shimmery, tempting. Just lovely!

3. Sweet tooth? What’s your favorite candy?
Aaaah, so hard to decide! On those PMS-y kind of days, I'll take Ghiradelli or Dove {little bits of heaven I tell ya!}
and on the other days, I'll take Cinnamon Bears. Which I can't find ANYWHERE! Wah!

4. Ice cream…..chocolate or strawberry, and why?
This is another depends on my mood kinda thing. I've never just been stuck on liking one same thing all the time I guess...sometimes it's vanilla, other times it's chocolate, then strawberry. And sometimes I just want a Neopolotin bar.

5. “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, classic film or Johnny Depp re-make….and why?
Johnny Depp is certainly brilliant, a magnificent actor of the finest sorts...but I typically don't like how remakes are remade. I'd take the classic tale over the new any day. Johnny should be left to his own unusual, one-of-a-kind, sexy, original vices.

6. Is your personal style sweet or salty? Explain!
Sometimes sweet {I might feel like wearing a simple dress and sandals} and sometimes salty {the next day I might feel like wearing disco attire and sky high heels}. Either way, it's all me and I'll take me just the way I am. Sweet and Salty. Naughty and Nice.

Why do people want what I want? lol

So, I tried to bid on this loverly, loverly 50's dress by Frederick's of Hollywood {filmland creations}

I really really liked the stretchy fabric with flared shiney skirt....perfect for bombshell pinup look!
Alas, I got beat out. It went for 83.99. Someone else wanted it more, I guess. BOO!
I'm keeping an eye out for more 50's Frederick's dress...everyone else is too!
