This caftan came home with me from a thrift store about thirty five years ago. It has a large hole in the hem that needs mending, it has been shrunk, faded, attended more concerts than I care to recall, and still makes me feel great when I wear it. Not much more you can ask of an item of clothing.
Caftan (ish) dress-A thrift store on Southport Ave. in Chicago 35(ish) years ago. All I remember was that it was near the Music Box Theatre. I'm sure the store is long-gone. I was so pleased to have found such a nice 60's relic for little more than pocket change. I bought a set of beaded curtains at the same shop, but have no idea what happened to those.
Aebelskivers. I'm sure I spelled that wrong. They're just buttermilk pancakes made in a funny Danish pan. Anyway, that was breakfast.
When in Lincoln...stop at Ben Franklin for plastic rain bonnets and sewing supplies.
As Ben Franklin store are disappearing, we thought it best to take photos by the sign...just in case.
Leather Jacket (bought early 80's)
Fragrance-Courreges in Blue
It should not be cold enough for a heavy motorcycle jacket, but it is. Sigh.
Mr. ETB thought the combination of blue and orange was too much. Obviously, I disagree.
1960's polyester dress-Thrift World
Footless lace tights-Target (I think)
Scarf-The One and Only Fabulous Curtise
Belt-Came with a dress
Jacket-Came with belt and dress-New Life Thrift
Fragrance-Eau du Givenchy (Liked it, obviously couldn't detect any jasmine in there, but it is listed in the notes. This was a generous sample gifted me by a vintage dealer. I'll get to work on a review, limited as it will be as I'm missing the main note).
