The Dance of Threads and Findings

071012stripedblsblkpntsHello All…..holidays upon us. This beautiful set has sold, but it does tickle my fancy! Why oh why aren’t there more threads like this made today? I just sold the navy snow suit, and saying good bye to that sweetie will break my vintage heart. Simple threads sewn together in the most amazing way, zippers, buttons, cuffs, collars, all like goodies on an ice cream sundae, and can you just imagine the joy of the threads as they weave in and out, forming works of art, thrilling the wearer and all who gaze upon her? We are fortunate to enjoy and wear these works of art, for it is a rare language indeed that few enjoy. I do like the mishmash hippie look, slapped together from bits and pieces. Please do stop by Vintage Lucy and take a look…..we are ready to shoot and add new listings, and there are soo many new and unique looks for you to enjoy, every thread and garment finding is begging to be noticed especially this time of year, so smooth and sleek against the skin, delighting in your every movement, a true holiday present for you and you alone. Enjoy the spirit!

Colorful Floral Party Dress with Bare Back

101615FlrFSunDSmlHello out there! Here is a sweet sun dress. I know it is fall in the northern hemisphere, but a pretty body top in contrasting color underneath will make this charming dress a colder climate must-have. Check out the clear Lucite plastic Vintage Lucy high-heeled bow sandals to wear with this cutie. As ever, each day is magical, every physical item we see and experience is created by our very powerful minds, so let true vintage fill your life with originality and joy.

Only vintage can do that, so do stop by and find a precious dress, ensemble, coat, or jacket to wear like the good friend it will surely be to you. Can’t thank you enough for your support all these years. I am here to help and answer questions any time, just spending moments away at the drawing board or in shooting photos.

Dreamy Gray 60s Vintage Lucy Belted Gray Mini Coat

022515GrayCoatSmlWell, here I am again…some interesting comments have come through, don’t quite know what to do with them just yet, but I will say the perspective I write from is my own. with the only inspiration coming from my way of seeing the world we live in. So here goes again:

We are highlighting in this post an adorable wool belted coat by Betti Ruth from the 60s….quite dreamy really, like new with very little if any wear. We can imagine where it has been hiding all this time, in what closet, or fashion house back storage, waiting for it’s true life to begin. Vintage Lucy loves this cutie, and I am Vintage Lucy! I will continue with my thoughts on magic and memories in the threads in a bit. I must run now, as I hear some vintage beauties calling me from my studio wanting to be included in the next photo shoot, but I will be back, I promise, later today……oooops….so sorry, I let down my promise to you.

I have done several photo shoots, though, so more new precious vintage beauties will soon be listed. I am doing lots of coats and sweaters, and some skirts to wear them with. Do stop by at Vintage Lucy and experience the thrill of tiny bits of unusual fascinating lives lived in between the threads….read of string theory and quantum physics so you can imagine all of the secrets living within each treasured piece. The more we talk of age and vintage, the more time weaves surprises for us in our present lifetimes. We may not feel them directly, but they are there just the same. Vintage is magic and I do love it so. I hope you do too.

Vintage Weaving Hidden Waves and Hills

060115TangFDSmlAHello, dearest, most wonderful friends and vintage-loving customers. Just needed to let you know I am still at it, seeking, searching and filing away, steaming and doing photo shoots, ever readying to list new beauties for your enjoyment. I do not get here to my little vintage blog near enough, and I know that. I suppose it is hard for me to stop and write about the goings-on. Too busy making it happen to stop and write. This sweet dress has a drape that can be worn over the front neckline or the back, two fresh looks in one treasure. And…there are many new vintage ensembles, dresses, jackets, and tops listed. I am about to list some funky and very spunky 60s play dresses perfect to wear with tights, socks and boots or over pants and jeans. Stop back soon, to my work-of-love Vintage Lucy or to this blog, and I promise to try even very much harder to write here more often. Still I am sure you are all out there delighting the world with your vintage outfits, and creating so many openings for those hidden memories in every thread to find their way out into our world, to play about quite magically even when none of us have the slightest idea they are out there doing their tricks on our every day lives. Ha! What a circus we cause, with all of this unknown playful dreaminess weaving hidden waves and hills.
