I found 3 deadstock late 60s or early 70s black vinyl space age rain coats from Japan recently. A few days later I watched the movie Don't Look Now directed by Nicholas Roeg and written by Daphne Du Maurier. Some of the raincoats in the movie remind me of my recent finds.
This movie is a tragic masterpiece, probably one of the best movies ever made. It takes place in Venice Italy. It is so beautifully shot, has a lot of symbolism, a climatic terrifying evil ending, so if you love horror, you will love this movie. I just bought the 70s novel, still waiting for it in the mail.

I usually sell vintage clothes and shoes on ebay, I am going to also start listing things on etsy, but I will still have ebay auctions too.
I am going to feature a broad range of things from accessories, jewelry to home decor. This colorful polka dot high waist skirt will go up in my etsy store soon.

This pale green net lace dress is another one of my ebay purchases as of lately. I am wearing it over my yellow sheer nylons, red 50s style panties and early 30s sheer Maidenform bra. I love the transparent fabric over vintage lingerie.

This is one of my recent purchases on ebay for dirt cheap because the economy is falling apart. If you haven't noticed, nobody is bidding on ebay, its pretty freaky.
This bra is from around the early 30s by Maidenform before cup sizes existed. Cup sizes were invented in 1935 by Warner, they called it the alphabet bra. This one fits me perfect, modern bras never fit me right.

Today on my way home from Oakland I just had the urge to go thrifting in every small town. I came across this antique shop and found three 1918 Parisian fashion magazines (Le Sourire De France)featuring partially dressed mademoiselles. The writing is all in french, so i cant read it unless I translate it, but the magazine is suppose to be humorous. I just love these illustrations by..(L. Peltier) they are so cute.
