Never Too Much Champagne

Too much champagne may lead to a side stagger, but, as this vintage satin pencil skirt shows, adding champagne simply adds stunning side swagger.

A Very Contented & Ladylike Sigh

A fashion sketch by Sir Cecil Beaton, presumably for a costume for a film production. I'm too lazy to investigate it. I just want to remain gazing upon it...

It would be far easier to collect & protect such sketches than the fashions themselves. Not to mention one would never need to worry about the matters of fit. Not just regarding my hips, but space in my home.

Inherited Values: Antiques & Vintage Collectibles, NOT By The Book

My pal Deanna has started a brand new network for those who love antiques and collectibles, called Inherited Values.

Not only is the site warm and nostalgic (just the sort of thing you want to sip hot cocoa and relax while reading), but they're looking for sellers of antiques and vintage collectibles to join them.

If you do join them and write there, then you can count on me reading you. *wink*
