Of course I had the perfect jacket to wear with it because...brown polyester! So easy to match, so easy to care for. I simply don't understand why people are so sneering about the fabric today. Maybe they like to stand and iron clothes, or send them to the dry cleaners. People have their hang-ups, I guess.
We'll talk about the bag, as I know that's what you're looking at.
How cute is that handle? I paid $3.99 for it at Hand-Me-Ups and on the same visit came home with this one as well...
The lining is falling apart, so that will be going soon. There's a peek inside my purse-hankie, compact, lippy, phone, wallet, and a couple dollars in cash. My grocery list is there as well. God knows, I'd forget everything I needed if I didn't make a list.
1970's polyester maxi dress-Fairytale Costumes, Omaha
1970's Koret of California polyester jacket-Thrift World
Large bracelet-Garage Sale at the mall
Both Handbags-Hand-Me-Ups $3.99 each
Fragrance-Cabotine de Gres (I'm still trying to come to a place of understanding with this one. I'm not there yet).
The costume shop yielded some great stuff including a pink and silver patio dress from the 50's, a wild 60's pink floral dress, and a blue and green polyester dream of a smock dress. I'll be showing them in future posts. I managed to pull a muscle (getting out of a chair-totally pathetic, I know) running from my neck all the way down my upper back, so I doubt very much I will make it back to the shop before the sale is over, but I can promise it will be in regular rotation now for my vintage shopping-she has great taste in vintage, and the regular prices are quite good!
Have you ever discovered vintage in an unexpected place?
