^ I'm here; haven't had time to play dress up till tonight, when I decided to pull out all of my old vintage coats and try them on.
here are a couple eek they're sort of swallowing me; they're both a bit big. they are also are extremely heavy; the plastic hangers they've been hanging on have started to 'droop'! I need to get some wooden hangers because I'm thinking this can't be good for the coats.
the black one I think is cashmere...middle 60's I guess. the red one is gabardine, from approximately the same time. I am pretty sure they are both custom made, and are the same measurements, so I think they might have come from the same owner.
I took some pictures tonight...three outfits. Hopefully I'll get them posted tomorrow if they're good enough.
I love this thread. You'd think it'd be one of the most popular threads at TFS, along with "What Are You Wearing Today". I don't understand how the most interactive fashion-oriented threads don't get more action. I guess a lot of people are afraid to post pics and all that...
^ thank you alex eagerly awaiting your pics! you always come up with amazing outfits. we'll get this thread going - it is still only just taking off. people don't be afraid to post! there is ever so much inspiration to be had from seeing all the unique things people have, and the great ideas people come up with.
