of a vintage shop-aholic...
Like so many other vintage
clothing aficionados, the love affair
with vintage clothes began
very young, initiated by a thrifting grandmother, and further honed by
Mom, who was something of an expert
at unearthing treasures. Regularly coming home with fabulous
dress-up booty - everything from luscious, frothy 1950's crinolines and evening
gowns to fur stoles and costume jewelry - resulted in a dress-up
collection the envy of
all my girl friends.
the years, the obsession with fashion naturally took on much grander proportions,
which were held in check only by storage constraints. A vast inability
to leave a beautiful piece on the rack, regardless of whether it fit or not, led to
having to consign many of those precious pieces.
Needless to say,
'appreciation' for fashion persists to this day, and this web site is an opportunity to share the results of
hunts with other appreciative souls through cyberspace. I hope you enjoy
your time here at Retrodress.
