So, H & M is the poor girl’s Neiman’s , but fashion isn’t about price- it’s about what looks good on you, because some people (including myself) could make a trash bag look chic. Anyway, when I go into H & M, and I see a piece I like from far away and then I rush up to it and then, feel it – I get discouraged. The entire store could go up in flames in 4 nanoseconds because everything is polyester. But , it looks good about 8-10 feet away, usually. Like in Clueless, it’s a ‘Monet’- A masterpeice from afar, but a mess close up. So, I like what I see above, but am afraid of what it feels and looks like in person. Having said that, I will probably pick up the jacket in the 6th photo. It looks so Tudors-ish.

I love , love, love vintage clothing. I love, love, love Ebay. It’s a ‘danger zone’ for me along with TJ Maxx, Neiman Marcus and Cinnabons. But if I were to step into the Danger Zone, I would happily do it with VioletVille on Ebay. They specialize in vintage dresses from the 1930’s, 40s and 50s. I think clothes from those eras fit me better than today. Today , I can be a size 6 or a size 0 depending on what brand I’m wearing. I find that vintage clothes were made  more for the petite woman and I fall helplessly into that category. According to my husband , I’m a shrimp. I don’t mind…. because I wouldn’t be able to wear vintage if I wasn’t a shrimp. Speaking of shrimp, I adore those cocktail dresses from the 1950s, especially the black ones with the pearls and bows. Back to VioletVille, check out their latest auctions and get carried away into an era of deviled eggs, cocktail dresses, and kitten heels.
