We have a country where there's very little space between having too much, or nothing at all and though I laughed when I saw the display, it did strike me as grotesque. I guess if you're in need of a hostess gift and don't want to go with flowers or a bottle of wine, the Tums will probably get used.
The vintage polyester high-waisted trousers are a definite, "No." I don't know anyone that ever looked good in them, or why you'd opt to wear something like this if other clothes were available. Sure, they're easy to launder but is ease of care worth looking like this? They're perfectly roomy, but still manage to look lumpy. Anyway, that's a warning to the kids out there-you don't want high-waisted trousers like these. Not all vintage styles are worth reviving.I've saved the best for last. Somehow the giant interlocking GG's escaped me in the store, but I liked the vintage suede bag and it looked very well made.
Only saw this as I went to clean it up at home. It was dusty, but in otherwise very good condition. That's the second Gucci I've found in the wild, though the platform sandals don't get much wear. This will be on my arm all autumn.
